It’s been quite a while since the last post. Here’s what has transpired, in abbreviated format. Orbit got “fixed” a few weeks ago. We were hoping it would stop or curtail the leg humping but that hasn’t happened. He has gotten much calmer over the last few weeks. His “zoomy” periods are getting less and less and he’s much more content to sit...
Some recent Corgi things

Although he’s tethered so he doesn’t get himself into trouble, he’s completely engrossed in chewing on a bully stick, looking like the happiest puppy ever. His ears went up this week; first one and then after a few awkward days, the other. He...
definition - when a puppy runs full tilt at his cat buddy and then, rather than stop and saying “hi”, plows directly over the cat and keeps running. repeat. (hopefully there will be a video to follow this at some point. It is hilarious)
