I don’t think the heat (weather) helps much either, and neither does having to be cooped up separately so we can’t go out and run at will. Robert has to go out every hour to pump water from the barrels in the truck up to the top of the house to the big cooler. (For those that don't know, our water line has been broken for 4 months now) We are so thankful that we got a new water pump over the weekend.
Robert lets us (all of us, but Doug) go out with him so we can run for a few minutes, etc. then, but a couple of times today, the neighbor dogs came out yelling, so we had to come right in because we were ready to lay into them!
Doug was supposed to be leaving today, only there was a snag. The shelter where he was supposed to go, has had a Parvo outbreak and isn’t taking any more dogs right now for the next two weeks, and then they have to have had their shots. Mom called her sister and explained the problem that’s going on around here, and they are trying to figure out something. She DEFINITELY doesn’t want ANY accidents with Mama OC… it was bad enough that Dott snuck out!
Mom feels so bad that “poor old Doug” as she calls him, has to stay separated from everyone else because we, corgis are such social creatures. She makes sure to go into the kitchen every once in a while just to give him some “loving.” Hurmph! He also goes out with us when we run in the pasture, but he has to stay on the long, 50 foot lead Mom has.
Dott is picking fights with both Mama OC AND Auntie Sadie, and Mama OC is picking fights with Auntie Sadie. Sadie is trying hard to keep her temper, but lets out a growl every once in a while when they get to nasty, and THAT gets Robert upset because he doesn’t want her to hurt Dott as she is “so little!”
Whenever the “N Word” (No) comes up, and it has a lot, Dottie goes into her “chi shivers” as Robert calls them and then goes and THROWS herself down in her recliner with a big sigh and pouts (for about 20 mins.). The water spray bottle is getting a lot of use too, and so are bedroom “time outs.”
I’m trying to stay out of everyone’s way, but Dott keeps coming over and dancing in my face… she is SO confusing to me! Lately, Mom is dancing around me too! I have NO CLUE as to what their problem is!
