We welcomed Lady Winifred into our home a couple weeks ago. She is now 11 weeks old and as feisty as ever. We decided to get a her when our neighbors Corgi had a litter. How could we resist? My parents and my sister both have Corgies and they are huge fans of the breed and so we thought we'd give it a go! We currently have one dog but he has really bad back legs and hips and also has a problem with excitable urinary disfunction. Translation: He pees on himself when you talk to him, while he's laying down etc... So there's always a mess to clean up. He doesn't care much for playing with the kids, and it's tough for him to take walks. He's more of a one person dog and that person is myself or my husband. Update: I took Wini in for her first vet visit today and they were telling me about acupuncture for our older dog as a possible treatment for his issues. I'm going to look into it further. If it keeps him from making daily messes it's worth a shot.
We really wanted a dog that the kids could play with, that we could toss a ball to and the dog would willingly play fetch. We wanted a pup that would be an extension of our family. Like our first dog, Lullaby! She was a wonderful, feisty Cairn Terrier. She went everywhere with us, was our little protector and loved us fiercely.
Thanks for visiting!
