Crazy or crafty??

Wondering if Abbi is crazy or just displaying great instincts... she is keeping the puppy from going off the deck and more and more her barking has become high pitched and she seems agitated... and overly excitable. She has been overweight for a little corgi and yet she is trying to chase and herd the puppy ... with a vengeance.

Hoping someone might have some insight. I think these are overpowering instinct, but she is almost vibrating as she before she barks and they are not cute…

Zooey ...

When we got our Abbigail, I posted a series of Abbi meets.. pictures and video. Abbi is still meeting things and situations, but our youngest, Zooey, has really never "met " anything or anyone. she beats, eats, defeats... but on a relatively quiet moment (for her) I caught the picture below and thought I would share it. She was out in the back yard on a spring day and hanging out by Chloe's garden... Chloe is the first lady of our Corgis and will never be forgotten. …

Resumption of corgicom

We took some time away from MyCorgi.com, not for lack of interest or anything really other than some struggle with the loss of our Chloe and Lola. and while time doesnt completely plug the holes in your heart, I guess time plus more corgis can at least distract you. 

Since the last posting we had a very rapid downhill battle with our Lola and I feel horrible about how it ended as I couldnt get her through the last night and to the vet to at least help with the pain. Since then I have…

Health questions???

Our  younger Corgi who has never been very healthy, surviving an auto immune disease in her early years, now 7, blew up like a balloon with fluid in her belly , the vet couldnt see anything on xrays all a grey blur, they put her on meds to bring down swelling and pass fluids (somewhat uncontrollably), and to treat possible underlying infection, dropping from 42 lbs to 36 in 5 days

It was enough for the vet to do an ultrasound... Found nothing good. Liver heart and lungs all clear, but…

Abbi ... meets collar

Since previous posts have gotten great responses ... Young Abbigail met her collar today (actually second time but the first intro was a speed dating session with the brush and other "toys"

Today though my daughter want to prove how much she has learned on animal planet and has the tiny little collar loosely around the Abbineck.

Whining and diving into the walls to rub off the irritant are tough to want but I know we have to do this.

How long is the first encounter , should this… Continue

is the playing more than play ??

We have introduce our new puppy to the pack and she has been very brave about engaging with Koda and Lola , but I am worried that their "play" may be too rough.

She will run , chase and nip to get them to play , and individually they are pretty tolerant. What I worry about is that the bigger dogs will chase her down and roll her around and when they nip back they dont bare their teeth but nudge and growl pretty roughly

Should I be concerned , should we just let them sort it out or… Continue

Welcoming Abbi ... And crate training concerns

Abbi joined us Sunday afternoon and has already established herself as a force.

Another "farm dog" corgi ... this little Pembroke was born 8 weeks ago and while we are never going to "replace" our first beloved corgi Chloe', Abbi has a similar background from a small farm in northwest washington, her parents were clearly very busy and she was born in the stable next to the horses. (not so sure this is important)

Abbi seems to be bold and yet has been appropriately submissive with our… Continue
