One thing I hate about butterball is his stomach….he’s a gassy boy and he’s very inconsistent. I’ve never had a dog without a tail and I never realized it was a saving grace when it came to poop….butterball is a dirty boy after the bathroom and I have to chase him with a wet paper towel to clean him up. He hates it so much. Once he sees the paper towel he knows what it means and he runs off. Poor little guy…if he had a tail I wouldn’t have to do this to him.
My question is…did you have the option of getting your corgi’s tail docked? I didn’t because I meet the breeders when butterball was about 4 weeks old. His tail was already docked. If you had the choice why did you choose it? If I ever have a corgi again I kind of want one with a tail…I miss he tail wagging….even though butters wags his whole backside.
Since butterball is teething he is going through all his toys like crazy. He has this new game where he takes off a limb of the stuffed animal, then he begins to take out the stuffing….I usually let him do it if I’m watching because I make sure he doesn’t eat the stuffing. He loves doing it….he also loves tearing up paper and cardboard so I find myself giving in and letting him have some fun once in a while. Now that butters has mutilated all his dog toys I had to think of something else to give him. I just don’t have the money right now to buy him a bunch of new toys that he will destroy by the end of the month, so I decided to go through my closet. My mom wanted me to keep all my old stuffed animals…so I have a huge box full of them. I decided it would be okay for butters to destroy since they were old and just a waste of space. He was very happy when I pulled out a bunch of stuffed animals. He is happy again.
"what's over my eyes mommy???!!??"
"you covered my eyes, now you must pay!!"
Butterball hasn’t been my sleeping buddy lately….this makes me very sad. I guess at night he would rather be on the cold tile floor downstairs than be in my hot room with me. This makes me very sad. I tried to make him just deal with it and sleep with me but he waits till I’m half asleep and he jumps off the bed. I really don’t like it when he jumps off so I end up just putting him outside because I don’t trust him downstairs all alone (he loves to chew furniture). I just don’t know what to do because when I put him outside in the morning it seems like he was up all night….the next day he’ll sleep most of the day.
I’m curious, how is your corgi handling the heat and if your corgi sleeps with you, has this changed?
i miss my sleeping buddy :(
