Happy Thanksgiving

I know I'm a little late with this post, but we have been super busy around here. We went to West Palm Beach to my uncles' house for Thanksgiving, poor little Whiskey had to stay home, but she got some yummy turkey as a treat. It was really great going to my uncle's to see a lot of family. My aunt and uncle for TX flew in and my cousin, her husband, and son flew in from St. Louis. My other aunt, cousin, his wife, and son came down from North Fla. So we had a lot of family around!

I don't have too many pictures of Whiskey from Thanksgiving but I do have a picture of a new flower collar I made her.

A video of the little bugger pulling the squeaker out of her toy (she has become a pro).

And I have a picture that has been taken annually on our way to Josh's dad of him with the famous pumpkin cheesecake.

Whiskey's Cousin & Bowtie

My best friend and her dog have been coming over on the weekends a lot lately. Which is great because it gives Whiskey a chance to play with her "cousin". A week ago it was Cousin Mickey's birthday and we were going to have a little doggy get-together for his party (which was cancelled due to rain) but I wanted to make Mickey a little something that stated he was the birthday boy. If you remember my collar flowers I made for Whiskey here. I made a boy version- a bow tie.

I think he looks rather handsome if you ask me. Since his birthday party got cancelled he will be wearing his bow tie to Thanksgiving dinner with his mommy and daddy in Georgia.
I kept trying to get a video of Whiskey and Mickey playing but every time I turned on the video they would stop then stare at me. They play a little rough- also for the fact that Whiskey was not socialized, but her and Mickey get along well. And he has taught her how to play and just be a dog.

New Lounging Spot

So I have been listening to my holiday music lately. My favorite is Tran Siberian Orchestra (haven't heard of them? I suggest checking them out on youtube, they are pretty awesome). Its not the traditional Christmas music, but I love them! Anyways I have been putting them on my stereo lately and sitting reading a book rather than watching TV. Today I had to so a little bit of house clean up, because my Aunt from Texas is visiting. (I love her dearly but she is like Emily Post-always clean, her house is impeccable. Also like Emily Gilmore of Gilmore Girls). So I had to clean, and yes I know it will not be up to her standards but its better than it was. I had to vacuum the whole house and Whiskey does not like that very much. Especially when I have to vacuum my room or aka her room. She gets a bit nervous. I left my sliding glass door open and she was sprawled out sleeping on the porch. When I was done I took my shower. When I came out I couldn't find her. I check on the porch and this is where she is:

Apparently the ground is not suitable anymore. After taking this picture and coming back into my room she of course follows. I got on my computer to check up on somethings and of course read up on my fellow bloggers. While I was doing this and listening to my music (kinda loudly) I see her walk out on the porch. My computer is in front to the sliding glass doors so I peer out and up she hops on the chair. I guess that's her new lounging spot. Silly dog.

Whiskey vs Squeaky ball

Whiskey vs her new squeaky ball.

I am sad to report that since this upload the squeak in the squeaky ball has died.

New Gate

A lot of new things have been happening around here for Whiskey: We got rid of her crate aka house and got her a new shelving unit that holds all her toys, food, coats...etc. She also got a new gate into my room. We use to have a 2 foot piece of plywood as a gate and we slid over or stepped over. Well a few weeks ago I went to step over it and my other foot just didn't get the message and slammed right into the board. My big toe nail got cracked at the top and pulled off. After taking my anger out on the board we decided it was time for a real gate. Off to the stores I went the next day. I have an odd size doorway (I'm in what is technically the "family room" so there is no door and no prospect of a door). A lot of the gates I looked at mounted to the wall- that was not useful for the fact that the two door way walls are concrete. I finally found one I like that was put up using tension....too small for my door way. I started to feel defeated, but tried one more store. FOUND IT! Perfect size, tension mounting, swing door. YAY. It took Whiskey a while to get use to this new gate, because she can see through it. So when she is in my room and the cats go to eat in the kitchen she can see them and bullies them by barking and growling. That is where an a bed sheet came in. Its kinda like a bird, put the blanket over the cage at night for bed time, same basic concept.

Self closing door also comes in handy

She'll stick her nose through the bars like she's being imprisoned. Don't let the look fool you, the sliding glass door behind her is open to the porch.

Ma? What are you doing on that side?

Christmas Card Sneak Peek

I know I am super early for thinking about this anyways and anytime I walk into Target I roll my eyes at the Christmas decorations and say "can we just get through one holiday at a time". But pictures are one thing I don't joke about and like to get this done as soon as possible. Mainly because I am probably the most indecisive person you will ever meet. Now if you follow me on facebok you will know that:
we had 305 pictures to choose from.
I narrowed that down to 119.
My family and friends helped me narrow that down to 21.
My boyfriend and I sat down and took that to 8.
Finally I put those 8 pictures into different card layouts depending on color and position.
You guys on the blog however helped me decided on Whiskey picture and with an overwhelming liking to photo #2 in white, that is what made it to the final project. So now I give you all a sneak peek at my Christmas card 2010.

Sunday Video

In reading the Corgi Chronicles this morning Josh, my boyfriend, decided to put Whiksey on my bed and play with her in the bed sheets. Its one of her favorite past times. Here is the video:

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Water Bottles

I few weeks ago I fixed all of Whiskey's toys that she had torn huge holes in. She has 2 Skinneeez and eventually she tore a huge hole in one's head and the other's belly. I went to just sew them up, then had a brilliant idea! I was done with my bottle of water and shoved it inside the Skinneeez. She LOVED it! I later found out you can actually buy them like that too, but let's reuse and recycle. Well a few days ago I was playing tug of war with the Skinneeez and it started to rip again, so I figured let me replace the bottle. This is was damage I discovered when I took it out: mutilated to almost nothing! Talk about corgi scissor jaws.

The new bottle I put in is also flat already! Its funny though, she wont play with the water bottle unless its in her Skinneeez. Hey whatever makes a corgi happy!

Happy Halloween 2010

I have been pretty busy around here, and not a lot to blog about, sorry to the absence.
To make up for that, here are some pictures from Halloween. My friends and I decided to do a theme... Super Smash Brothers! (All but one of us did the theme, but the one that didn't looked great in his own costume). We were a pretty big hit out on the street going out and had a lot a pictures taken.

from left to right: Frodo, [Ness, Link, Zelda (me), Mario, Princess Peach & Sonic] Super Smash Brothers.
Whiskey's Halloween was a failed night as soon as we walked out the front door. Her hot dog costume did not stay on it kept falling the side and then she would trip on it and it rained.... I was so upset and frazzled. At least we got some good pictures before everything was ruined.

Ma, I'm not a hot dog! I'm a bratwurst (like grandpa-my dad says).

Family photo for Halloween.

Thanks everyone for sticking with me, I hope to have some more updates and blog worthy things happening soon.
