Arrival Story:
After my beloved Tess died from insulinoma just a week before her 11 th barkday I knew I needed to become serious in my search for a corgi puppy. I went online to the national Pembroke website to look for breeders. I wrote to several I found listed there and one referred me to a breeder she co-owns corgis with who had 2 litters of puppies. My friend, Lorraine, and I drove 4 1/2 hours one way into Ohio to get Tegan. It was very hard to choose from the available pups. I finally decided on Tegan because she responded to the name I'd already chosen for her and because she had such great eye contact w/ me.

Tegan has gone to puppy class, obedience I and II as well as agility. She flew to Washington DC to meet my brother's family where she got to go to her first Petco, to the National Cathedral grounds and 3 different dog parks. Tegan was lucky enough to stay w/ friends when I had to have surgery, and adjusted very well both times. Tegan LOVES children and she sits down beside them and lets them pet her. Tegan enjoys showing off and running w/ her friends in the dog park. She's not sure about horses ever since one tried to eat her.

Forums Motto:
Tegan - All treats are MINE!

It's my barkday, and I am pawtying hard!

Today my friends and I from corgitales are going to start our four day weekend of pawtying. Connor is picking everyone up with his transportikal and we are going to Culver's for cheese curds and whatever we can beg from unsuspecting humans. Especially the little ones who have a tendency to drop lots and lots of crumbs (yum!).

Then we are off to our buddy's house for a nice mouse hunt through the tall grass. I'm sure there will be Easter eggs and pseudo chocolate for all of us.

Hope you all have a great, happy Easter break!


I'm having a barkday!

Today is my barkday and I'm celebrating w/ my friends from corgitales and all you dogster buddies. Corgitales has two transportikals. Mine is one w/ classic design inside and out. Connor's is very contemporary. We have all kinds of outings to celebrate barkdays, gotcha days, dates between couples, raids on places w/ good food, and our last big outing was the Mardi Paws. We started it in Connecticut because one of our beloved NACs (not a corgi) was going to be put to sleep and he was such a big contributor to the Mardi Paws float I didn't want him to miss it. So we all trundle inside the transportikals (the float took up a lot of space, no surprise) and went there first. We had a lovely send of for our dear friend that made his mom cry.

We send faeries to friends in need and our moms started a private book club. Really fun for them. We, on the other paw, periodically send gifts to our buddies or fax treats to them. We don't mind cleaning the fax machine because cleaning it means "more treats!".

It is so nice to have friends. Thanks for being there for me!

Well, we've been in our new house for about a month now and it really feels like home even though some boxes are waiting to be unpacked. It doesn't help that mama went online w/ Overstock and bought 5 bookcases, a linen tower, and an electric fireplace so we got all those boxes, too. It takes her about an hour to do a book case from start to finish, but the tower looks like it's going to take quite awhile. It has a cast of thousands! heeheehee

I have met and charmed some of the neighbors, but the lady next door doesn't particularly like dogs even though she has her son's dog living with her. To me that is an unbelievable situation, but what's a corgi to do? She doesn't like trees either, because they shed leaves. Mama loves leaves because they make great mulch to enrich the soil and protect plantings over the winter. Sigh. Our biggest trees are all sick and mama may have to cut them down. Maybe she'll get an grill and use the cut wood as fuel. Some of the neighbors think I'm adorable, especially the elderly couple across the street! Mama says she'll take me over from time to time so I can visit.

Anyway, our house is very cute, with almost enough windows. At least all but one window is big and we can get away w/o turning on lights during the day! The front room is ideal for the ferrets and mama has a table in there where she does jigsaw puzzles and uses the computer.

My favorite room is the kitchen, of course, because that's where all the good stuff comes from . . . but the basement is pretty cool because I can snitch the ferrets' food sometimes and eat their poopies through the cage bars.

There is a doggie day care a 10 minute walk away. I went one day. I played for a little while but then I mostly slept on a couch. When we went to a Halloween party there I stuck close to mama. I wouldn't play w/ any of the other dogs and looked "worried" according to mama. Mama couldn't find any of my costumes so she went and bought another one for me . . . so I went as a hot dog and won first prize! Mama said not to get too swelled of a head. There were only 2 or 3 other costumes. Mama will put the picture up on my page when she gets it scanned in.

Life is good!
