Archie is adearable!! Up here in Clarence, there are several corgis that live nearby. My hope is to someday all get together. There have been suggestions for a corgi contingent in the Labor Day Parade. Is that something Archie could handle? Don't know if it will happen, but there are a few of us who would like to try! I hope you and Archie are enjoying the WNY summer!!!!
Kristin, how large is Caleb? The peekeeper did not fit Lucky (they only go to size med) so I am just going to keep on with the bellybands and try to make a peekeeper of my own! Just thought I should let you know before you order one, Lucky is a 30# corgi, around 18" long. The peekeeper people will make one to your dogs size for extra $15, I think I will try my own! Carol
Kristin. I got mine free, from another member of wheelcorgis. I went into the wheelcorgi file to see if there was a link, all it said was search bellyband or male wrap - mine is a poochpad, the velcro is VERY strong on it I can barely get it open, it has a strange smell - I have washed it 4 times and cannot get rid of it. I don't know if it came with the smell or if it came from the house of the lady who sent it to me! (just a warning) Lucky does not mind the smell, or the bellyband. Good Luck!
sorry about the mix up! hope Archie doesn't follow in Caleb's footsteps, so to speak. another successful night with the bellyband, the commercial ones much better than ones I tried to make having never seen one! now I know what one looks like, I can make a better one.
Kritin, I think that as long as you let Archie know you still love him and don't make a big deal of his problem it will help. I know that Lucky pees even more when my son or husband yells at him for accidents he has no conrol over. I found a way to get the belltband on last night with a heavy duty diaper, he peed in the diaper and seal walked to the door before before he lost the whole kitten kaboddle! Good luck!
Kristin, I posted about peeing because I live with a pee problem at our house. Then I came to your page...I love the visor!! I would not worry about a few snap peas, is that what they told you? My 2 love them. And...Lucky is very with it, he will leave bellyband, wrap on at night, no problem - maybe he knows it will come off with his seal walking! GOOD LUCK!
Thank you for your friend request! I am glad that you are finally home and that all went well - what a long day! Your new furbie will "prepare" (yeah, right) for your new human baby! By the way, Nov 22 is a good day for a baby, our daughter's birthday is that day, or the 7th, that was the day our first corgi, angel Odie was born, but I digress
You might be sorry!, but I'll give you all the info she's given me, and see what you think.
His dad is OFA good, CERF'd, and vWD clear by birth. His mother hasn't been OFA'd, but her parents were OFA good & fair, she's CERF'd, and hasn't been checked for vWD, but had a litter via c-section, so she'd have bled wouldn't she?
He will come neutered(isn't currently) but per my request she's doing it, if not there would be a neuter contract. A health guarantee, his vet records, his AKC papers, a copy of his pedigree, a small bag of his current food with instructions on how he's been being fed, and a toy or 2.
She said he's crate trained, likes water(pools), loves his grooming, EVEN NAILS! Is in a corgi sense, quiet, and not very vocal. Gets along great with other dogs. I think that covers all of my major questions, can you think of anything else? My only problem is he's not been around cats. I have 3 indoor cats, and it would be nice to know how he'll be with them. She thinks he'll be fine because she says he's very laid back and mellow and it seems his philosophy is just to "live and let live" when it comes to new things or animals. What do you think?
Good luck with your choice! Like I said, if you have any specific questions feel free to ask. I'm currently at work so don't worry if you don't hear anything for awhile. We adore our retired show girl.
