Post full of updates

So it seems a lot of us bloggers have taken an unplanned mini blog hiatus. Real life gets in the ways sometime.
So this post is a lot of updates and ramblings and some thought I'd love to get input on.
First off: my boyfriend and I found am apartment and the past 2 weeks we have been moving things in and trying to settle. This is will the first time in 4 years we are living together so heres hoping all goes well-it seems to be good so far. We have his 3 kitties and whiskey coming with us. The cats are already at the apartment. With whiskey we are waiting a little while to get more settled before bring her over. We are renting a condo from the owner and the association has a weight limit on dogs. 25 pounds- whiskey is a tad bit more. However it makes me feel a little better that there are other corgis living in other building cause at least they know the breed a little. Another thing I am worried about it she barks. At everything. A leaf scraps the sidewalk 2 blocks way and she can hear it and will bark her little head off. Does any one have a solution to the obsessive barking? We've tried ignoring it we tried saying quite and treat. And nothing seems to stick. At some times I have to hold her mouth closed. Treats obviously work the best but when you give it to her she's quiet for a few seconds then starts up again. She does this when we home obviously but what about when are not. Is she just going to bark all day long? I have to stay at my parents hose for a few days to watch my mom's cats and my dog while she is visiting her sister. My boyfriend and I have decided that when mom gets back that's when we'll take whiskey to the apartment and get her groomed down a little- grooming her looks like she loses 10 pounds. I have already had a few melt downs about leaving her at my parents and going to our new home without her the past few weeks. I miss my stinker.
In other news: it's that time of year again for thinking of holiday pictures. I have the idea of what I want Josh and I to do-now just to execute. This year is going to have to be a little different however because whiskey will not/cannot be in the picture with us because of the location. I don't want to give too much away so you'll just have to wait for the uploads. Our critters will be on the cards though don't worry. Now here comes a question: I really enjoyed doing a card swap with many of you and I would love to participate again this year. Let me know if you are interested as well.
Also I am already making my Christmas list for my mom and everything blog/corgi related is on that list!! :-) I am so excited to get the calendars (that my little stinker is in all 3). And Paige I am in love with your corgi hats! Way to go being creative. I think that is all my updates/ramblings for the day. Please comments below about the barking and Xmas card exchange love to hear from your guys.
