Coned again

My poor pup-pup of a daughter has her cone on again. When was the first time? When she got neutered. This time she has a spot on her back right by her nub of a tail that she keep licking and biting at, I call it "butt chewing". In any case it is all red and swollen and irritated, so t prevent any further "butt chewing" I put her (overly priced from the vet) cone aka Elizabethan collar back on. Poor pup-pup is humiliated. Grammie and I gave her a bath with a skin sensitive shampoo last night and then put some neosporin on it, hopefully this will make it better, otherwise there is a vet visit in our future.

Try, try again

At first you don't succeed try, try again...or give it another purpose. Remember that doggie coat I made for Whiskey? Well it needs some modifications so I put it on the dining room chair to get started again after a lunch break, well I went to find my glass for some more tea and found this:

...I guess its not Whiskey's coat anymore, its Chatterbox's bed now. Which I am gladly to give him since I was to re-try to the coat again.

2nd Issue:

For those who know my I'm not an ultra pink loving girly girl. And in return neither is my dog.
I found a collar that I love for her,but everyone at the park calls HER a HIM. I suppose her name isn't much help either "Whiskey", although I will call her "Bunny" while at the park.

You be the judge: boy or girl?

Arts and Crafts

The two days that I have had off I've been looking at blogs and getting ideas. I wanted to get/make Whiskey a coat for when its cool outside, but in stores I can never find one that I like the print (that its not too girly looking) or the right size for her. I found a few online, but one seemed quiet simple to make. Me and my mad sewing skills. I decided to break out the sewing machine and try my own. This was just a prototype, and it just needs a few minor adjustments. but overall for my first try its not too bad.
Making this puppy coat was not as easy as it seems, especially when you have 3 kitty furry friends helping you and a puppy wandering all over the house.

"What mom, am I in the way?"

"OK, I'll just roll over."

The two pieces face-to-face (as pillow fashion) sew 3/4 of it and leave one side open to flip inside out. When I flipped it inside out i added the quilting batting.

Nice and poofy with the batting inside and i just sewed an "X" down the back so it didn't look so "pillow-like".

Whiskey wearing her new coat, she must be embarrassed, cause I had to coax her out of her kennel to put it one, and then after the picture was done she went back in.

Been a looooong time...

...I know its been a long time since I have been in the blog world, but nothing has been quite so "blog-worthy". I have my darling dog that I have been taking to the dog park, and have now recently found some doggy blogs to follow, especially Corgi doggy blogs. I was reading some of them and all us Corgi owners have something in common- We LOVE the "rabbit butt". I'm staring to think I should have named my baby "Bunny". That is a nickname that is used quite a lot, but her real name, the name on her tag is Whiskey. Which makes since too, she is like a lil shot of whiskey. At this very moment my lil "bunny" is sitting on "granpapies" lap for some petting. Half the time she thinks she's a lap dog, the other half she thinks she is a Rottweiler trapped in this little bitty body.

I haven't delved fully into the Corgi blogs I am following, but it must be a Corgi thing that she chews and destroys almost all her toys, especially the squeaky ones. The only ones she hasn't destroyed is a Kong and Nylabone. (Which are basically indestructible even by German Shepard).

She now has a new puppy cousin that she needs to meet, and I can't wait for that to happen. :-)
