Executive Chef...sounds like a wonderful job. I LOVE food and had my own small Catering service years ago...helped pay my kids way through college and weddings:) If I was 20 years younger I would be a personal chef! On my days off...I cook!
That sounds like fun! I am planing a corgi meet-up in this winter. Maybe in December when the parking is free and the weather is good. I will let you know! Thanks for the reply and join Corgis of Virginia Beach for any updates on Beach walks.
I know it is kind of last minute, but I am inviting all VA Corgis to come play on Oct. 15th at at 2pm. Meeting at Neptune statue at 31st street bordwalk VA Beach. There is available parking in the lot between 30th and 31st at the starbux parking lot for free 2 hours. Or available all day parking at any of the parking lots, normally 10 dollars. Hope to see you all there!
Haha! I would think the contrary: A woman who is an executive chef (aka: cooks wonderful food), obsessed with dogs means more time for man to watch sports all the time and not be asked any questions -- lol
I hear it was quite a scare with the earthquakes. I'm very glad it was more scare than damage.
I was in VA once white water rafting. Absolutely gorgeous country.
My Tri, Truman use to attempt to herd our Jack Russell, Stuart. Not pretty. They respect each others boundaries now.
If you're ever in Michigan, you are more than welcome to stop for the harvest and show a fancy dish or two.
It has been my dream to go to culinary school but it wasn't my reality. I think I'm better and growing the food.
OK that is funny.........JACK RUSSELS.......where did those dog lovers ever get that idea.....I will be happy to let you know what I hear further about herding.....I am excited that we may be able to get some training closer to home. We are trying to walk around 3 miles a day.....but sometimes can't manage to get that all in.....boy do the pups ever sleep well.....I want to keep them as active as I can.....
Hi Nancy.....Sorry to not have contacted you sooner, but the summer was so hot that we just stayed at home and waited for the cooler weather. We are ready to go for some walks with other corgis now and I am also actively checking on persons who would be willing to instruct a group in sheep herding......A friend who does sheep herding is calling her friends that have taught this art and asking if they might be willing to take on a group of corgis. Sure hope this works out. Last weekend we went for a walk at a park near us with two other corgis. Merry and Sammy do love having the other dogs with them. They came home so energized from the walk in Williamsburg....I think they thought they had been on a very special outing.
I had a feeling Bear was the bigger boy! It fits him. :) Who bit him? is he okay? Our boys had an aggression issues for a while and Caliber got Sniper's ears twice... Once pretty badly. Luckily, after lots of positive reinforcement training and some separation they are back to being best buds.
Nancy, Thank you for the warm welcome. It sounds like Tasha was quite determined! haha. It's very hard to stay mad at these doggies! I enjoyed looking at your pictures.. I am curious which dog is which? They are all so cute in there own little ways. I have many pictures and stories to tell. The life as a corgi mom is never boring!
Annie, Sniper and Cal
PS- please let us know if you're ever up our way in Northern VA!
I'm glad you have fond memories of tennis. Obviously, I'm a huge Rafa Nadal fan, and am really hoping that he can win this US Open and join an elite group of 6 or 7 players that have won all 4 slams. Plus Rafa has an Olympic gold. Hearing the crowd, between points, yelling "Rafa" "Rafa" helped me choose my puppy's name. They love him in England and in NY. He has almost rock star status. I just love to watch him play and he is rather easy on the eyes. ; ) I need a nutritionist! It's a great career choice. Obviously she got her interest in food from you!
Corgi life is the BEST life. Rafa has been a little handful, but this past week I'm seeing signs that all my work is paying off. He's housebroken (watch, he'll make me eat my words later!). He goes out the doggy door and takes care of business in the wood shavings. He's chewing primarily on his toys and seems to be learning Lucy's boundaries. He's a delightful little charmer. If he's not following me, he's following Lucy and she's a great teacher. He's walking on the lead with the lead slack. Again, Lucy's teaching. He's yipping far less and seems totally relaxed and happy. He's a quick learner and knows how to make his needs known. We're wild about him. His namesake, rafa nadal. is playing at the US Open Tennis tonight. Since naming Rafa after him, Nadal has lost 2 tournaments. : ( But, this is the big one, and we're hoping for a win.
Signs of a great breeder. Lucy's predecessors were Roughhouse, from Blandie and Maitland Ijams. We had 3 little girls and only wanted a female corgi, but Blandie did not want to separate dylan and emily. So long story short, we took the two. But Blandie and Maitland were out in CA to judge a specialty show, and they made it a point to stop by our house, and check out our home! ya gotta love breeders like this.
