Corgi Fantastic Friday

We love to play rough and tumble games

Maxwell, Brody, and Beau also like to pose for the camera.
Playtime was ending and things had calmed down, they are three of the sweetest corgis around.
Another frapping good time!

Introducing "Max" of New Baltimore

This is our Maxwell's little bro, from his Mom and Dad's next litter.  Isn't he ADORABLE!
We have made new friends with his parents Bob and Allyn and hope to be able to meet in person someday.
 It was quite the coincidence when we found out they shared the same name.  Must be karma.

In this pic he is about 4 1/2 months.  I cannot get over how much they resemble each other.  He is quite the star student in obedience class.  Well of course he is, brains run in the family along with good looks.  Happy to have him in our corgi pack.

March Madness

Beau Geste loves basketball.  We are sorry to see our Spartans get beat so early in the tourney. Better luck next year!

Meet our new "friend"

We found this little snake and the boys checked him out.  I think they were very kind to the little belly slider, though I think at one point the little snake tried to bite Maxwell!  We let him go on his merry way to eat bugs or whatever snakes eat?

Wee Wee Spring has Sprung!

Taking a break on "our" bench while out for a  morning walk. As you can see we are very muddy. Mom took us home and gave us a bath. When the word "bath" was said Maxwell went and hid underneath the table! I had to chase Beau around the house too.

Looking so handsome on my first birthday!

Maxwell received a "chuck it toy", rawhide bones, a ball, and a very special treat from the D.O.G. Bakery.  Sign up for their birthday club and get 10% off all purchases for the month of your dog's birthday.  He got the tasty treat shown in the picture too!

Biggest Loser "GUS of California"

I read about this corgi on the Warming Glow "Corgi Friday" site.  In this picture he was 78 pounds.
This can happen so easily with this breed, they are non-stop eaters.  It is very important to watch their weight because of the long back.  This picture was taken in 2008.  The average male will weigh 28-30 and female 26-28.  The good news is Gus now weighs 34 pounds. the next picture was taken in 2010.
He looks happy and healthy.  I love the bandana around his neck. So no matter how much begging they do and give you the sad eyes, that say we are starving to death!  They really are not and will live longer and healthier lives if you and I do mean you the human maintain the amount of food they get on a daily basis.  With our two I have been giving them green beans and carrots as snacks.  Beau weighs 30 pounds at almost 2 years.  The vet would like to see a couple of pounds off of him.  Maxwell weighs 26 pounds at 1 year.  We will work on keeping him around this weight, though I think as he starts to fill out, he will gain a couple of more pounds.  It is a daily struggle for me to not overfeed them because I cannot resist their sweet faces.

In like a lamb out like a lion..........

Beau winter of 2010, he is on a snowdrift that was about 10' high
Beau winter of 2011, no drifts this year!

The old wives tale is in like a lamb out like a lion or vice versa.  Well today is definitely coming in like a lamb so "HELP" us all for the rest of March.  We are having a very mild winter in northern Michigan but, the reality is Spring is a long ways off.  March can be known for some terrific storms.
