Day at the Park… By Gimli

Here it is… FRIDAY already, and we never got around to telling you about our time at the Park last Sunday!

After Church last Sunday, everyone decided to go to the Park since it was such a beautiful day. They took stuff for a picnic, and WE got to go. (Actually, “We” were only Grandma OC, Uncle BG, Mama Dott, and me because out elders have always gone into town and there is to many for everyone to go usually, so us pups have to take turns going in…)

They had Tri-Tip BBQ and BBQ Chicken, and we got little pieces of it! MMMmmm! 

There were lots of other dogs there too, but it isn’t a “Dog Park” so we all had to be on leashes. One looked a lot like my Grandpa Stitch, Mama Dott and Uncle BG’s Dad, only smaller, according to Grammy, but he wasn’t really her Dad, so Mama Dott didn’t like him much… 

I tried to be friendly, though.

Mimi brought Auntie Kisses and Auntie Dolly, too… 

We had a lot of fun running and playing on our long leashes, and dog and people watching!

Grammy took each of us for a walk… even Grandma OC in her wheelchair (but she forgot to take pictures because she was paying so much attention to how Grandma was doing…)

Grammy also took some pictures of Brady, her niece’s baby. He is doing very well since he got out of the hospital, and she wants to thank all her friends that were praying for him from her “Country Grammy’s Walk With God” blog!

IT’S MINE!!! by Dott

Grammy gave it to ME…

YOU can’t have it! 

I’m just not hungry right now, but IT’S MINE!


It is MY Vienna Sausage, and YOU CAN’T HAVE IT!!! 

WHAT!? What’s going on?!

THAT was a DIRTY TRICK! No fair everyone barking until I just HAD to go find out what was going on! This wouldn't have happened if my Dad hadn't been snatched by that mean old "Job" person!!!


P.S. We just found a brand new blog written by Miss Julie Welsh, from Corgi Manor. She’s another feisty corgi and looks like she will be a fun friend to know. Her blog is called, Bark of Love, and you might want to check it out!   (I just fixed the link as I had it in wrong for some reason when this first posted...)

FINALLY! Miss Mercy Monday Mystery #5

Today I get to post Miss Mercy Monday Mystery #5! THIS is the one everyone has been waiting for because after we get the winners from THIS post, we will have the BIG Corgi Toss to find out who will win the GRAND PRIZE for this set of MMMM’s.

SO FAR, we have Mango with 1 chance, Betty and Koda with 2 chances, Rachel and Bender with 3 chances, and MayzieGal, Lorenza, Khyra, Dog Foster Mom, and Martine ( Candy & Captain) with one chance each. (By the way, congratulations Candy, Captain, Martine & Daddy on the new brother, Pierce, that was born this last week!) Here is the last MMMM Badge.

Let’s see who adds chances and/or new names to our list of winners this time, that will go into the Grand Prize Corgi Toss!

This weeks Miss Mercy Monday Mystery takes us back in time to January when my two brothers, and Uncle BG (Grandma OC was “gone” to Mango’s mansion as a Judge for Mango Minster 2010 remember or she would have gone too…) went on a BIG Road Trip. You can go to this ARCHIVE of our blog to sniff out the answers to these three questions. 

1. Where did we go: From **** to **** and back.
2. How long did the trip take: ** days
3. What kind of vehicle did we take? ****

AND to this other ARCHIVE for this final question. (I’m not making this one easy… ) 

4. What was the C-A-T’s name at our Auntie Rachael’s house? ***   (Hint if you don’t want to read the whole post, you can scan down to the picture of the C-A-T and read beside it for his name…)

Remember, the prizes are a Miss Mercy Winners Badge for this week’s winners, and the Grand Prize, picked from ALL the winners of the weekly Mysteries, will win EITHER a “Little Dott Finds A Home”  book written by Mama Dott and GrandPaw Robert, OR a $20 Gift Certificate to our Country Corgi CafePress Shop.

There are still designs from the Mango Minster 2010 Competitors. If you happened to have been one, you might want to choose something from there, and half of the profits from those sales go to NEADS.  NEADS trains service dogs, hearing dogs and other assistance dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes to help people who are deaf or in wheelchairs.

Good luck, Super Sleuths!!!

P.S. Remember that I have put comment moderation on during the 24 hours or so of this contest so no one will be able to see other people's answers.  The comments that are left will be posted Tuesday afternoon or evening.  You can leave your answers in a comment up until Tuesday at noon PST.
