Charlie, Thanks for the great advice with Lance and leash walking. I appreciate it. We are slowly working on it and the little bit we have been able to practice Lance is doing great. Between my brothers wedding, working and the weather it just seems like there isnt enough time in a day! Thanks for the great tips, it all made sense after reading your suggestions.
Quite a light show indeed! I almost couldn't sleep because it was so bright outside. I expected those HUGE claps of thunder everytime the lightning blazed, but it was always really soft rolls. I talked in my soothing voice to Skittles and snuggled up to her.
I know we don't always have control, but it is so difficult to have something bad happen and trying to figure out how you could prevent it. I still can't get over Basil and the way he died. Yet I can't imagine life without them.
I was in shock about Lizzie because she was right in front of our house by the mailbox. I think it might have been our neigbors son who still didn't have a driver's license, but I really don't know. Our dogs don't have "roaming" privileges, but they did go out to potty without a fenced yard...Not any more. It only takes one car.
we live on a road that T's past our farm so people don't drive by. When Lizzie got hit is was a shock. She and Basil would both cross the road to go the bathroom in the tall grass in the ditch--a privacy thing I think. She must have crossed and was hit. It is the only explanation we could come up with. We never heard a vehicle and no one stopped. We found her shortly after we let her out for her "last chance" before bed. She usually didnt leave the yard when it was dark. When I walk them in town- I tighten the collars to ensure they don't slip out. We are "re-fencing" the yard around the house this spring as well.
Charlie, let me preface this by saying that I am not trying to be offensive by asking this question. I have noticed that you have a LOT of information on a lot of different topics... and I agree with most of it ;). What I'm wondering is... what are your credentials? How do you know what you know? Again, I know this could come off sounding rude but I'm really just curious as you seem to be very knowledgable.
Hi Chris and Charlie! I recognize you from the GoCorgi forum, which I read sometimes but haven't posted on regularly in over a year. If you're signed up on cool2bcorgi.com, you'll see me there frequently. Hope to hear from you soon!
Hey thanks Charlie, We are starting on all of that training today :) you have been such a great help, I have to admit this is my first puppy... I have had a German Shepard but she was already trained and older when I got her.
Good News! his eyes are fine... I'm pretty sure he was shaking the dandelions and getting the pollen in his eyes. I am relieved that he wasn't broken, we just got over Giardia :( on top of all of it he had a vaccine today. poor guy
good thing his memory is so short :)
To be honest, I was pretty surprised to find a group for Austin on here! However, it is nice to see that there are other people that appreciates corgis in town. It'd be fun if there was a corgi get-together of something...
I live North, couple miles from Lakeline.
