Little rant about poo bags

You know what I hate?  When I’m out walking Fawkes and I reach into my nifty doggy bag holder and realize it’s the last bag.  And then Fawkes decides to have a second movement and I have no more bags.  D:

Doggy bags should have a different color for the last 2 bags or something.  Seriously, guys, it’s a great idea!  Use it!!

Tip on cleaning a Furminator

Recently, I noticed our Furminator wasn’t removing as much hair as I’d like.  At first, I thought Fawkes’ shedding was getting under control (LOL), but then I looked closer at the Furminator and noticed instead of having individual teeth, the whole thing looked like a blunt blade!  What happened was so much gunk got caught up that it filled in all the space!  Super.  Gross.

I ran the brush under running water and tried my darn hardest to wash it, but could only remove the top part of the icky stuff using my fingernails.  It took so much time and wasn’t even very thorough.  Then, I had an idea.

Floss.

Yup, floss.

I took a long strand and basically flossed between each teeth of the Furminator.  In less than a minute, and the brush was as good as new.  Super easy.  :)

Fawkes got a small cut on his ear. It started healing but then he kept scratching at the scab, so the area looks a lot worse now. We tried using gauze and bandages but he shook then loose. We then put my airplane pillow on him as a makeshift cone and it seems to be preventing him from scratching his ear. He, however, is not amused. #corgi #corgination #corgisofinstagram #fawkesthecorgi

Anonymous asked: Out of curiosity, would you say the shedding gets pretty bad? I'm trying to convince my grandma to get a corgi, and I hope to get one in the future, so I figured I would ask. Thanks!

Hi there!  Yes, corgis shed like crazy.  There’s fur basically everywhere in our apartment and car.  Brushing regularly helps keep the shedding down, but you do need to expect weekly vacuuming if it really bothers you.

I think shedding is a small sacrifice to the joys of having a corgi, but it definitely is still something to take into consideration, especially if not everyone in the household is on board.  Hopefully, you and your family can work something out.  :)

**LOST SERVICE DOG**

To my fellow Bay Area humans:

My name is Heather Pujals and I rescued an amazing dog named Ryan nearly 4 years ago who just went missing in Daly City, CA on Wednesday, July 16, 2014. She is a SERVICE DOG who, although I never expected this when I adopted her, has the gift of being able to detect the oncomings of my debilitating migraines. I have suffered with these all my life (they run in the family) and they have always caused me to miss a lot of school and work, and they are so excruciating that I become unable to drive, leave the house, or even eat, and I am sometimes forced to stay in bed for days. With The help of Ryan’s early detection of the chemical changes in my body before a migraine hits, I can take preventative medication that 9/10 times stops the migraine from surfacing. (Migraine alert dogs are not very common yet, but they are similar to seizure alert dogs.) I need her help, and it just so happens that her separation anxiety is bad enough that she really needs me too. We are like Siamese twins and never go anywhere without each other. Please help spread the word—even if you don’t live in the Bay Area, maybe you have friends or connections who do. Every “share” counts and the clock is ticking. I don’t know what I would do if something happened to Ryan. The longer she is out there, the higher her chances of being hit by a car (or other terrible things) become.

APPEARANCE:
Mostly black with brown paws, long silky yet fluffy fur, medium size, 40 lbs, floppy ears, black spots on pink tongue, border collie mix.

TEMPERAMENT:
Extremely shy, afraid of strangers (will not approach), will run if chased (DO NOT CHASE IF YOU SEE HER, call (408) 316-1587 ASAP and perhaps follow calmly from a distance), very sweet and loving with those she knows well, is very smart and knows dozens of commands but likely will not respond in this situation.

DETAILS:
Last seen on Wednesday, July 16 at 12pm near St. Francis Blvd and Higate Dr., Daly City, CA 94015.
Ryan is a 4 year old spayed female who is current on her Rabies vaccination, is microchipped, and is licensed in the city of San Francisco. She was wearing a blue collar with a name tag that has my number, as well as her SF dog license.

Your “share” could make the difference to help reunite me and Ryan. I can’t stand to be away from her and I know she is suffering too. Thank you.

Here is Fawkes in a box. The reason he’s in a box is… (drumroll) we are moving! In a few weeks, we will be leaving LA for Portland. It’s a big change for us and we’re super excited for this new chapter. However, we’re going to miss you all so much. 

Lots of love especially to the SoCal corgi community. We are so thankful for this tight knit community of fellow short dog parents. Hopefully, we can meet up again in the future, either if you’re up in Portland or if we come down for beach days. :)
