Flat Gimli - Wedding photobomb

Hard to believe that one year ago, Flat Gimli photobombed what was going to be a lovely picture of the newlyweds.

You really cannot take him anywhere!

Mike and I had a wonderful time at this Vegas wedding.  Hell, I even got onto the dance floor and that never happens. The last time, was at our wedding!

We wish them many more years of love, happiness and bacon :)

Saturday Smiler - 2 out of 3

Here we are at an event from last week.  Merida is getting there, though no consistent smiling.  Gimli, on the other hand...

Wet head

I was in the shower the other day when I heard Mike walk into the bathroom and the click click of 8 corgi feet follow him.

I peeked from the shower curtain to say hello to the corgis.  Gimli gave me a smile, then scurried away to find a toy or something, while Merida kept walking toward the shower.

I pulled my head back in and I thought she would be spooked by the crackling of the curtain, but nope.  She put her feet on the step and then walked. right. in....

She got so far as to jump into the stall and was surprised there was water falling on her head.  If I hadn't grabbed her to put her onto the bathmat, she'd probably have run around the stall trying to avoid the water and gotten soaked!

While Gimli is scared of the shower because he's scared of falling water in general, Merida seems to be quite Brave. (sorry, had to do it!).

Dead Men Tell No Tales

Arrr, today be "talk like a pirate day".

I don't have pictures o' me scurvy scallwag corgis wearin' their colors, these will have t' do.

Keep a weather eye out for this raucous crew, specially that Jack Sparrow fella.  No good he is.

Shake Shake Shake Senora

No, not Beetlejuice related, but shaking just the same.

All four of Merida's adult canine teeth are coming in, but the baby teeth haven't quite fallen out yet.  I was scared it would cause a problem, but when I checked this morning, all four baby teeth are shaking!

I'm sure they'll fall out in the next few days.

In the meantime, here are some puppy teeth that I was able to save - two incisors and two pre-molars.

Saturday Smiler - Yes Master

GIMLI: So, I told Merida that Candy was our master.  A short while later, Candy was trying to take a picture of Merida and I.  She told us to "Stay" and then Merida said:

MERIDA: Yes Master.

GIMLI: hehehehehe

Water Corgis

We introduced the corgis to the concept of a pool, though it didn't go too well.

Gimli thought it was a large water dish.

Merida thought it best to let a more experienced corgi go first.

Gimli decided he wasn't going into the water, despite the presence of a ball and cookies.

Merida went in and ate most of the apple chunks.  Gimli never did make it back in.

I think next time we'll use a cookie that floats, those little ones sank and the corgis couldn't reach them.

5 things going on in this house - September

I haven't done one of these in a very long time :(

1. My blog posting has fallen off... again... and I have so much to tell and so many pictures and video to put up... argh.

2. Summer is almost over, how did it become September all of a sudden?

3. Gimli had 2 visits to the vet in the past 2 months for 3 different ailments.  A shear off of his large upper molar, random lameness that turned out to be a pulled muscle and an eye infection.  I'm hoping that's the end of ailments for him this year, it comes in 3s right?

4. Merida is doing well, growing and learning each day. She's in the swing of losing teeth - she's lost all of her top and bottom incisors and some of the premolars on the top.  I'm totally the dog momma as I've saved the teeth that I've been able to find.

5. Mike and I were doing well this summer with our exercises, then we stopped and haven't gone back since.  It's a neverending struggle to exercise and sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.  Usually when none of my clothes fit, which is the rollercoaster I've been on for a long time, is when I become frustrated and head back to exercising.

From the mouths of puppies

When I walk Gimli, he rarely barks at other dogs. They bark at us, but he just looks at them and continues walking.

Today, I was walking the corgis and as we headed into the park, a dog from the nearby houses barked at us. Gimli continued walking as usual.

Suddenly, I heard this shrill barking coming from around us.  I stopped and looked around, only to discover it was Merida!

She doesn't really bark at home except when she's playing with Gimli or trying to get our attention.  She doesn't bark at the door or at the doorbell, (for now), for which I am grateful.

I guess she felt the need to tell off that other dog!
