Tar on Huntington Beach

Hope all those who went to the SoCal Corgi Beach Day had a blast!

Corgdad and I noticed tar on our feet when we got home. We checked Fawkes and he had a dime size on one of his paws. It took a while to get it off, but we were just glad it wasn’t on his body and in his fur. Please check your dogs to see if he or she is okay!

Anonymous asked: Why is Fawkesy called "Bunny"?

Hi there!  That’s just one of his nicknames.  He has a bunny butt when he runs so I started calling him Bunny and Bun-Bun.  :)

Herder or nerder?

(Okay, the title of this post doesn’t really make sense, but I couldn’t find anything that rhymes with herder other than murder and, well, that would have made even less sense.)

Before I got Fawkes, I did a lot of research on the breed and found out about their herding instincts.  After bracing myself for ankle biting and other herding behavior, I was left pretty disappointed with Fawkes displayed none of that!  He barks a bit, but has never nipped or tried to herd anyone or anything. 

How long did it take for your corgi to start acting like a herder?  Is Fawkes not showing any of those traits because he hasn’t been exposed to the right scenarios?  What situations could motivate him to get started?  Am I crazy for wanting my corgi to herd us?

A super special TBT: my first ever pic with Fawkes during our first meeting! As you can see, the image quality is pretty bad. That’s because corgdad and I were so excited about Fawkes that we forgot how to use a camera. Seriously, you try to work the buttons and dials when there are cute corgi puppehs running around. It’s impossible, trust me. 

My first impression of Fawkes was “Omg he is so cute and he looks like a furry potato! He’s so small, how do I hold him, omg omg omg.” Yes, that was my brain. Actually, that is still my brain now, minus the size references.
