Well it has been awhile since I’ve posted. I’ve been really busy lately. Good thing is that I graduated! Bad thing is, I’ve been neglecting butterball because of all the chaos lately
I’ve been trying to devote my time to butterball but with everything that has happened lately it’s difficult.
He’s growing up so fast….
I’ve been taking the little monster to the dog park lately. I want him to get used to other dogs and not be a jerk like my other dog is. At first butterball was very skittish and only wanted to hide under the bench Daniel (my boyfriend) and I were sitting on. He’s been slowly breaking out of his shell. There is this one dog that loves to tease butterball….the dog will come up to butters and steal a leaf of stick that is close to him and entice him to want it….once the dog grabs butters attention she’ll run off and tease him some more. I find this hilarious and butterball just runs after her barking and tripping over his big paws. He is not coordinated at all. He tends to walk and trip over his feet and do a face plant I feel bad for the little buddy.
I am happy to say I met my first, well first two corgis in my area. Daniel and I went to the dog park and I saw them. They were in the little dog area I usually take butters into the big dog area since there are more dogs there and I had a nice chat with the lady. She had a three year old sable and a seven month year old tri. I didn’t realize how big butterball was until I met another corgi. He was twice the size of the seven month corgi. The lady said he looked normal because he has a really big head and paws. This makes sense because my boyfriend did pick the puppy with the biggest paws in the litter. I was so excited to talk to her about corgis. I can tell that pretty much anyone who owns a corgi has the same obsession. I had to leave shortly after because every time I looked at Daniel he looked like he was on the verge of killing me. He thinks I am too obsessed with butters and I think this blog proves it….but to my defense I am not the only one!!!!
Butterball hates the heat…the heat just arrived here I’m hoping it goes back to being 60 soon. The poor guy didn’t even have fun at the dog park every time I stopped talking to the lady I found him lounging in the shade which defeats the purpose of taking him to the dog park to release some of his endless energy. I thought it would be nice to take butterball into the pool with me and Daniel….poor guy hates me now because of it. He swims but he acts like we are torturing him…I hope that he will eventually get used to the pool and will end up coming in on his own.
I have a question to ask….how do you clean your corgi’s teeth. I tried to brush his teeth the other day but he was so scared all he would do was run away and scratch to get away. I ended up giving up because it felt like I was torturing him.
have a great week!!!
