A Day at the Ranch...

We spent the last two days at my sister-in-law's ranch in East Texas. It was Blaze and Diamond's first trip to the ranch! She has Golden Retrievers, and it just seemed perfect to bring our two little beasts. After some trepidation on my part, Blaze and Diamond spent the entire morning off leash...running with her younger Golden, checking out her pond and boat, and just exploring the world. Such fun! Diamond had her first swim in the pond. Blaze isn't as big a fan of being in the water as Diamond!

This afternoon, they slept all the way back home (2 hours). After a quick walk, Diamond has sacked out in her crate (and dared anyone to bother her!) and Blaze is just mellowed out on the sofa. I just looked over and he is chewing his rawhide with his eyes closed! LOL!

A perfect Corgi day!


A lazy Sunday...

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted!

Since the last post, we've been dealing with a change in Doggy Day Care to one that is a little more in-tune with little Corgis that are still puppies and very much herding dogs. In other words, they bark and they chase. A lot. And all day. If it runs, they will chase it. If it barks, they will bark back. Duh!

Now I have two very happy little Doggie Zen Den attendees! As you can see, Blaze is resting up today (LOL!). So is Diamond, but she is not in a very photogenic pose.

This is Diamond's "growing month". As with Blaze, when Corgis hit 7 months of age, they grow almost every day it seems. I've been tempted to measure her before she goes to bed at night and again every morning...it seems she just gets bigger! Some days, she doesn't want to eat; she would prefer to sleep all day. After Blaze, I know it is just normal so I go with the flow!

Blaze is nearly a year old now, and he is really making progress in training. I'm not really sure if it is the age or just to show up Diamond. Either way, I'm loving it!!
