The People's Corgi
He has been an almost 10 year dream in the making. Around college, I named my inevitable future corgi “Chuckles”. My family sent me texts when they spot one saying “chuckles sighting!”. My husband also got me a calendar the year we got married which counted down the days to our wedding and the days until we got Chuckles.
But unfortunately, the last 3 years we’ve lived in places that did not allow dogs (we are Seattle area folk born and raised). We finally moved to a condo that was doggy friendly so we began hunting. After about 3-4 months of searching and hearing a lot of “no’s” and “No litters until the spring at least” we had just about given up hope that California wasn’t going to be the time to get Chuckles either.
But then I found Pegken’s Dogs and their website announces puppies were available Aug 28, it was like a sign! The breeder Peggy is a delight and sends me pictures with his name; Chuckles.
Sometimes, when Linus is sleeping too quietly, I have to walk over to make sure he’s alive.
Chuckles has been extra itchy on his little back stubs. Starting to get red and looks irritated. He’s on the same food since he was a pups, same shampoo for bath time (once every two weeks usually), no fleas or other bugs… So I’m thinking maybe dry skin? We’re tried a little apple cider vinegar in his water, but not much change.
Any ideas fellow corg-rents? Thanks!
