Butterball is beginning to get more comfortable with me. I’ve had him for about two months. He’s starting to become my cuddle buddy. Usually when I wake up in the morning he is laying next to me or touching me somehow. I love it. I was a little disappointed when he use to not want to cuddle so I am trying not to force it and now he comes on his own. I’m still hoping for him to get use to being petted. I’ll have to wait and see if it works out.

Butter’s is getting so long and heavy now. I have to carry him down the stairs since he cant go down them. He’s had a few accidents trying to go down them. One problem with carrying him downstairs is he’s getting heavier, longer, and bigger. I don’t know how much longer I can carry him down the stairs. Did your corgi have problems with stairs? I think he might have so much trouble is because the stairs aren’t wide enough and he doesn’t know how to maneuver his body yet. Maybe I just need to start helping him learn he needs to turn his body a certain way and encourage him with a lot of treats.
One thing that I don’t like about butter’s is his little biting problem. When he’s very excited he kisses then bites. He’ll be so happy and greet you and kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss, then all of a sudden CHOMP on your nose, lips, chin, ears, and so on. Its one thing I am working very hard on. I tell him no but when he gets excited again it goes out the window.
Butter’s only has his last round of puppy shots left. I am very excited to be able to take him to the dog park. I am eager to see how he reacts and how others react around him. I hope all goes well. One thing I am afraid of is he will want to “puppy play” with an older dog and the older dog wont have it and will hurt him. My older dog, Lucky plays well with butter’s. butter’s will chase him around the house and yard. When lucky is tired of butter’s he’ll go to the couch, since butter’s isn’t able to get up yet. Lucky will also play back. They play very well with each other. I am very glad since lucky wasn’t a dog person before we brought butters home.
