Corgi puppy Friday!

… baby Tess. Who is still the baby. ;)

Throwback Thursday - Simon getting his HT title back in 09. :)

I have a question about GSDs. What do you call a female GSD.... a German Shepherd Dog Bitch? Or a GSB?

You know, I actually have been asked this question before, so it’s not a silly question!

There are I believe only seven breeds of dogs that carry the actual word “Dog” in their breed name. The GSD is one of them. You’d just call her a female GSD, or a GSD bitch!  :D (Because she’s of the German Shepherd Dog breed proper. You’d call a GSD male a - well, a GSD male, or a GSD dog!)

… I called my girl the b-word a few times. She totally deserved it and was proud of that, trust me. ;)

Hahha, aw, of course!

:9 Cake is awesome.

Run, Corgis, runnnnn!

How's Riley doing? Do you see him and his new human often?

He’s doing really, really well!

He um, broke his new mom’s ribs though. Oh boy. He got under her feet at three AM in the morning and she fell into the kitchen counter. XD;

… she said, no, she’s not giving him back. In fact, she took him out for a beach weekend and they roamed the seaside together. I was like “with your ribs?” and she was like “Eh!”  Which is GREAT, she’s out doing things now, she’s taking trips and visiting new places with him.

She adores him and her family does as well. It was a great match. M sees him more than I do, he comes into his work on the weekends to visit sometimes, since M and his new owner work together. Riley doesn’t give him the time of day— which makes us both sad, but incredibly happy. :)

Good place, happy dog, happy person.

Corgi blog AND seattlite? I can only hope to run into you or your pack someday. They're all gorgeous!!

Yes to both!

And aw, thank you! We bop around in Seattle a lot, and we love making new Corgi friends and shooting photos, so… if you’re around sometime, let me know!

My boyfriend and I are planning on having a corgi and a GSD once we move into a house. Which one did you have first and how well did they get along? BTW, your whole group is just gorgeous. Simon is my absolute favorite (I love the blue Merle and his crazy eyes) just don't tell Tess and Caleb :)

Aw, I had GSD’s for nearly 17 years before I had Cardigans. Honestly, the GSD’s got along great with the Corgis, it was a good combo of dogs. They’re very similar in some regards, and very different in others.

(Shedding being one of those similar moments. Oh boy, they shed!)

Hahaha, aw, thank you! I won’t tell Tess and Caleb, but that’s okay. Simon sez they just have to let him have the limelight sometimes, because that’s how he rolls!”

(Also, he rolls in questionable things on the beach, but hey…)

Time to cut the grass…
And er, might be time to get you a new Jolly Ball, Simon.
