Ha! I took Bertie to a pet psychic when I first moved up here! She was at the dog food store so we dropped in. She said Bertie wanted me to be more creative! hahahahaha. Well, I just keep an eye on Ethel, I can kind of see when she tenses up and is ready to pounce on some unsuspecting guy (usually when they sniff her for too long or are to in-your-face bouncy).
What do you do about the bossy stuff? I want Ethel to mix well with others, but now I'm very wary. She got into a tussle with a little terrier who actually bit her on the foot and I had to get antibiotics because it was a puncture wound. Some friends invited us over for dinner -- they have an older dog and a 9month old bouncy beagle puppy -- I want to bring the pups, but am concerned. Erg. Ethel. She's a cutie pie, but a devil.
Hey! Happy new year from Lakeside! How are you guys doing? We are all well -- but I have to say that as Ethel has gotten into her 2s, we go to the puppy park less and less -- she's a little too bossy to everyone. Ah well. We have plenty of fun together. The pics of your two are so cute! Now....about a third Corgi....hahahahaha.
I know, my little baby is 16 months -- and Bertie is 5 in May, which makes me...argh. Where does the time go?? We've dropped into the dog park a couple of times in the past few weeks, and it's not been bad. With this rain this week, though -- maybe toward the end of the month? Where's the breeder you've applied to? Good luck with that -- scary, but exciting too.
Ohhhhh, the beagle sounds like a sweetie. Maybe Peanut is like Bertie, not all that interested in expanding the family circle outwardly, but I think inside he likes having the dog company sometimes. Meanwhile, I joined state corgi groups on this website, both the Western Mass and CT groups -- but there doesn't seem to be all that many people in them! We may have to create our own meet up and see who comes (once the mud is gone, that is).
Too funny! I didn't see your friend request, so took care of that! Ethel is actually Bertie's niece, she's from the same breeder. I think they enjoy having each other, but they also compete for my attention, it's a quirkyy relationship. Bertie is VERY attached to me, and Ethel likes to follow Bertie around and do what he does. They do wrestle and play a little, but Bertie prefers my company. Or they will EACH bring me a toy and expect me to throw it or chase them! And Ethel always steals Bertie's toys but he just lets her, he's a gentleman. So we are a pretty happy little Corgi family. I was at S'bury today -- but I think we will be giving it a miss until this snow is thawed and the mud dries up, it was gross!
Hi Susan! I'm in CT too, and have 2 Corgis. We met a Susan and a Corgi named Peanut once at the Southbury dog park -- that wasn't you, was it? We laughed about it -- being named Susan suggests we are of a "certain age" and then having tricolored Corgis -- it's like meeting your long-lost twin or something. Anyway, it would be fun to find other Corgi CT folks and have a Corgi day, don't you think! Peanut is a cutie and I like his stuffed mini-me! How has he not torn that to shreds yet?
