Corgi Noseholder & Teg's Trip to Grandma's House

Teggie fell asleep in the grocery store parking lot waiting with her boy...
She found that the drink holder in the car's console made an excellent Corgi noseholder...

Then she went to Grandma's house to see her cat cousins...who have the best toys!

Playing ball while the kitty boys look on in shock...

Cats have better hiding places, too!

Teg greets her new friend, "Hiss 'n' Spit"

Grandma shows Teggie the windchime...
which she works with her nose

Teggie Needs Waterproof Pantaloons

Teggie smiles with a sigh,
"I Like the Lanai, it's nice and dry!"

My Corgi is a cross between a fox and a deer:
Her face flaunting doe eyes is angular and foxy,
Her Corgi pantaloons with their nubbin, boxy.
She looks upon wet grass with trepidation and fear,

Her belly will be soggy, her fur will be mussed,
She stands in the St. Augustine in utter disgust.
“I prefer to take my business where it’s nice and dry,
Please leave me to myself back on the lanai

To burrow like a fox, make a thicket like a deer...”
Even in the rain, I can’t complain,
Though she’s driving me quite insane.
How can I be cross with my Corgi so dear?

Mom, Teggie Keeps Tabbing!

Teg hits the tab key on her boy's laptop,
which is taking up all of
her lap!

"Well, don't do your homework on the way to school (Mom says this is not even safe!) and pay attention to me, your adorable Corgi girl..."

:) Teggie is all better, but will have to spend all day at the vet for observation on her next booster vaccination trip. She had a really yucky digestive reaction all week after the incident. Thank goodness for the doggie yard service. Love entrepreneurs who will do this for almost nothing, what a great idea!

:( Teg ripped her toenail on something in my bedroom and it really bled. Poor girl. After I cleaned her up, we sat down for a nail sanding, and I have to recommend the grinder versus the clipper. I didn't have the batteries for our PediPaws yet, so I used my heel callus remover with the sandpaper attachment and it worked great.

***Please note, Teg usually has her seatbelt from Outbound Hound, and we were still in the neighborhood when this was taken. She helps take Shayne to school every morning... and this is finals week! Yay for summer! Posting Teg vid very soon...

The Wonderful Thing About Teggie...

Teggie feels better after a severe reaction to her immunization boosters on Saturday, which landed her in the puppy hospital with red, droopy ears, swollen eyelids and lips and hives on her tummy! Her ears are up now, and she is feeling bouncy again, back to her trouncy Teggie self.

The wonderful thing about Teggies
Is Teggies are wonderful things
Their tops are made out of rubber
Their bottoms are made out of springs
They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy
Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!
But the most wonderful thing about Teggies
Is I'm the only one!
(adapted from "Tigger's Song" written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman)

After our move, Teggie enjoyed helping me clean our new home by pushing the toilet brush around the bathroom. (Good thing it's a new brush!)

Thank you to the wonderful Corgi moms who sent Teg baby gifts, such as the Hershey's Bar squeak toy!
