What school/working means for butterball: more time outside, less time at dog park, and late night study sessions yet again (but no chewing on my text books this time!)
Butterball has been getting pretty spoiled lately….I am still trying to finish up the treats from the treat review, but I don’t want to spoil him too much in one day. Its pretty much too hot to do anything so I bought butterball a pool. Of course he wants nothing to do with it. The only pool he likes is at the dog park (my theory is that he only likes it when other dogs are in the pool). I weighed myself on the scale with butterball and he added 25 pounds!!! He’s getting to be a good boy and something tells me he’s not even close to what he should be. I’ve been focusing on getting him more exercise, which means more dog park….lately he’s been playing with puppies (a game of chase and roll). Butterball is a bit uncoordinated and he rolls when he gets caught and just flops over when big dogs come around, its very funny.
Daniel, butterball, venus(Daniel’s doggie), and I went on a 4 mile hike to a creek/waterfall in the mountains. Butterball did better then I did…..I was pooped about half way up since it was all up hill. I got tired of trying to constrain him because he really wanted to walk!! I took him off his leash and he did his business (marking his territory just about everywhere) and explored. To my surprise he did very well without walking on the leash. He listened if we called him because he got too far ahead or distracted. When we finally got to the creek he ran straight towards the water. I was a little sad that the water went down a lot but he kept going from one side to the other and jumping on this rock. It looked like he was almost saying “I am king of the rock!!” it was funny. Last time we went on the hike butterball was still a baby and I had to carry him down the hike. Which is very hard for me since I am one of the most uncoordinated people you will ever meet. Well this time on the hike I got too nervous about butterball because he is too friendly and this lady had dogs…..and butters goes running towards her, and uncoordinated me runs after him, I catch him and I fall. feel really embarrassed and really scraped up. Lesson learned just let butters learn he cant do that and needs to listen. Maybe butters thought me chasing him was a game. I am not sure but the hike kicked my butt and left butters a dirty mess.
Well lately….I have been looking for a corgi brother or sister for butters (bad idea I know, and my mother wont like it either) but I cant help it they are so cute…..well anyways I am looking into adopting a corgi in my area preferably purebred, although someone did contact me with an offer on some mixed corgis (not sure if I want another puppy).
My question is, how much was your corgi? And did he/she come with papers. Butters came with everything since he was champion bloodline sired (only person with a corgi in southern Cali). Butters was a bit expensive. So I’m kind of asking to see if we bought a overpriced corgi, or if that’s about the price range.
