Meet Chester! He is a pain in the rear end but I love him like crazy.


He loves snow more than anything (except food).


He also loves to watch tv. Home Improvement especially.


And his squeakydog.


He is also a total exhibitionist.


Aawww AWWW.

On barking:
Thanks for the advice. I didn't realize corgi-barking was so different than with other breeds. Cable really rarely ever barks - but if it gets out of control, the time-out is an awesome idea. His worst nightmare is being separated from the action!

I almost wish he'd bark when someone strange approaches the door. He does get excited and wants to see who it is, but he doesn't announce them if they're a stranger. If it's someone he knows, THEN it's bark-greeting time

Here are some more pics. He's a super small corgi, and I don't doubt he's poorly-bred. Still, just as cute as any other corgi I've seen :3

Pose for the Christmas card, drat it!

Where's my goddamned milk?!



We stopped by All the Best Pet Care (our local pet food store in Seattle) yesterday and picked up a variety of chews. One that Josie seems to like a lot is part of a shed deer antler. We also got some more frozen raw marrow bones, but will give her those in moderation so as not to have major digestive issues.

One thing our breeder told us about Corgis, and I'm seeing this a lot with Josie, is that they really do think they're larger dogs. The "big dog in a small body" thing is very true. Our breeder had mentioned that she might want to play with toys that we might otherwise think were for a larger dog. I bought this rope toy off of Amazon, because she was chewing on the cats' sisal scratching posts and I wanted something else rope-like for her to chew on. I figured I'd be safe with "medium" right? Well no, the drat rope ball is like the size of her head. I took one look at it and was going to return it, so I had it sitting out in a box waiting to go back. Well she got into it, and grabbed it, and it turns out she loves it. She swings it around like a goddamn wrecking ball. So I'm like "eh, if you want a toy that's the size of your head, that's fine."

So anyway, when we got her the chews, we went for the larger sizes, like 6-8 inch chews, rather than the "small dog" chews.

Yeah, I never get the smaller chews for my dogs. EXCEPT for the raw, the raw bones I gave them were the smallest that Mud Bay had. I do get the smaller bully sticks (6" max) and then only let them have half at a time in order to avoid upset tummies. Those pizzles are super rich, and if they were to eat a whole one in one sitting, they would for sure get the shits.

Have you checked out Mud Bay yet? It's such a great store, they always send me home with a bunch of samples of treats. And their selection of bones is awesome and fairly inexpensive. My favorites there are these beef bones about a foot or so long, where one end is knuckle shaped. They've got a bunch of dried tendon/meat on there, and they're only $4 a pop. They also have the huge bully sticks. I need to get a pair of gardening shears or something so that I can get a huge one and just snip it down serving by serving for them. Seems it'd be cheaper to go that route.

Another great thing that Mud Bay has a lot of are the puzzle treat-dispensing toys. One of the activities my dogs regularly do is to get their dinner out of them. I've got 4-5 different brands of those toys, and I rotate them so they get something different every night. My favorites are the Buster Cube, Tricky Treat Ball, Treatstik, and the Canine Leo. Just pour her kibble into it, she'll figure out the rest. It's a great form of both mental and physical exercise.

Yes! We actually have a Mud Bay near us, and we go there more often than All the Best. We got a little frustrated with them a few weeks ago because it seemed that they were perpetually out of the Innova puppy food we'd been feeding her. So we stocked up on that at All the Best. We will definitely be going back though, just taking a break for a bit.

I actually haven't purchased any of their bones before, but I noticed they've got a nice selection. Since she's teething and chewing on everything right now, we're definitely on the lookout for things to help to redirect her attention away from our shoes, etc...

We've got a few treat toys, and could probably do with more. We have a Canine Leo (actually a couple of them), a Tug-a-Jug, and various Kongs. We try to vary them and they'll hold her interest for a little while. I think ideally we'll start feeding part of her meals in those because obviously she's more motivated when it's getting close to mealtime.

He developed struvite bladder stones when he was hardly more than a year old. I was fortunately able to correct the problem without surgery, and he hasn't had any health concerns aside from a rash he developed when moving to my new neighborhood.

Thats awesome, made me chuckle.. Ive been asked if merlin was a fox and how they could get hold of one.

Ive got a quick question, dunno where else to post it but merlin loves the cats (a little too much) but the cats alas do not love poor merlin. How long does it take for them to get use to each other? Merlin is 5 months old and as i said loves the cats but theyre so close to clawing his eyes, its worrying me.

I've gotten the fox question with Nacho. But the best was when someone saw him and asked, "Is that real?" Granted he was four months old at the time and looked like a stuffed animal, but come on. He was on a leash and walking on his own.

Sushi was three months old when we brought him home. Nacho was almost a year old at the time and was definitely very interested. Sushi didn't like him at first and there was a fair amount of hissing and swatting. Eventually Nacho learned Sushi's limits and Sushi learned that Nacho wasn't going to eat him and they started to play together. How long have you had Merlin?

My corgi just got diagnosed with the same stones. He had submissive urination problems his entire life. I took him to the vet over and over again and it didn't solve anything. Finally, last time I went in I said, "I think he has a bladder infection, please check his urine!"
He actually peed out stones into the container.
Chances are he's had stones (or at least crystals) all his life, and his vet just assumed it was submissive urination and never did any real tests. He's been on prescription food for almost a month now and I haven't had any problems since.

Haha, Nacho goes nuts for lasers too. He doesn't have a tail but his normally invisible nub would wag violently. We had to stop letting him play with it because he would just go too insane. He'd look around for the light long after we put it away and any time he would see a pen he'd start to go apeshit.

From what I have learned, Cardigans have larger ears than Pembrokes. And this litter has unusually large ears for Cardigans. So the ears are having some problems standing up, even with extra calcium in her diet. Even her breeder is having issues with one of her litter mates. In the past we would tape her ears over the weekend, which is usually how long the tape lasts before she figures out how to get it off. We're gonna try to keep tape on her for this whole next week and see if that helps.

Somehow he ended up getting the cord stuck around his neck and the hat ended up covering his nose while he ran around the house trying to get it off. He got it off his nose and then it was hanging below his neck until I took it off.

I'm housesitting and puppysitting for my landlords, and they have an adoooooorable little one named Poppy. She is such a catty teenager, and since she can't jump up/off beds, she gets really agitated and will cry. I let her sleep with me last night, and she licked me to death before snuggling up with me and laying there all night. Ahhh gahhhhhd she's so cute. She'll lay around and look cute if we're not paying enough attention to her, and she's an amazing snow-hopper.

Very cute coat, though she probably doesn't need it. Corgi coats are very thick! Even when it was in the teens and 20s a winter or two back, my dogs were a-ok for hour+ long trips in the snow. Though I guess puppy coats don't have that dense undercoat that the adults have. As much as I like dressing my dogs up in retarded sweaters, they seem to get too hot living here in the Seattle area. Zeke a little less so, as his undercoat and fat layer isn't nearly as thick as Bailey's.

It's mostly so she doesn't get completely soaked. I was stuck with her downtown when there was heavy downpour of rain last week and she was shivering and wet. I already had a coat for her but I forgot it at home.

For myself, I had a hat, my snowboard jacket, and good boots but the legs of my pants were soaked through it was raining so heavy. She seemed more comfortable after I got her the coat from a local store.

Then we had the heavy, heavy snow today. If I didn't have the coat on her I would have had to towel her off every time I took her out. With the coat, I just have to dry her feet.

On a different tangent, she likes buffalo bones and didn't get the runs from them.

We'd like to get another Pembroke, so does anyone know of a good breeder in the Portland,OR / SW Washington area? Supplemental question: What are some other dogs who breed wise can match up well with a Pem if we decided to branch out? Any and all advice helps!
