Happy Birthday To Me!

I'm three today!!!!


And I'm having a great birthday. I got presents, hung out with my friends at school, and, most importantly, I finished my dinner and had the puppy version of birthday cake - a great big cookie!



Since I'm famous, I also made sure to let the adoring public know about my birthday. I was Instagrammed and Facebooked of course. Then I got all sorts of love from Corgi nation when I was posted on The Daily Corgi's Facebook page:




You should check out the comments - people are saying the nicest things, like

"Happy Barkday!"
"Corgi Rock Star - wishing a very pawsome 3rd birthday!"
and my personal favorite...
"You are a Corgi through and through with your mind on the cookies and the cookies on your mind!"

It's only natural that I would have a fan club, since I am a beautiful Corgi, right? I appreciate my friends at The Daily Corgi letting everyone know about my big day!

Do you follow The Daily Corgi? You probably should, especially if you don't have four-leggeds around to make your home more hilarious. The Daily Corgi posts stuff that's sure to make you smile, like for example Corgi Valentines, and very important news coverage on topics such as the Royal Corgis. And, of course, rescues. Who doesn't love a good rescue story, saving both puppies' and people's lives daily?!

Fluffy butts :)

Now, I must be going. The very last item on my birthday to-do list is to snuggle my fluffy butt up to my family and listen to them say how much they love me over and over and over again. Happy birthday to me!!!

Happy Halloween!

As you know, I love Halloween - in the past I've even won costume contests. But as far as I knew up until this year trick-or-treat was basically just a myth. We never had many people come to our house for candy. It probably didn't help that in the past two years we've had October snow and a hurricane.

But this year!

Oh, this year!!

This year on Halloween we learned something great about the street we now live on - everyone trick-or-treats here! It's like they come from all over town to knock on my door!

We had so many trick-or-treat-ers that we even ran out of candy. The street sounded like a block party and the cars just kept coming. It was easily my favorite night of the year, since meeting brand new people is one of my most favorite activities. Plus, most of them were just my size!

I sat outside with my family for a long time giving candy to all of the cutest kids in costume. Mostly they loved me, and even those who were afraid I was able to win over with a sweet look and a tail wag. I'm a very charming dog, you know!

I hope you had fun on Halloween, too!

New Rules

My little sister is here!!!!!!!!!!



She's almost two weeks old, and already my family has been enjoying our newest member so much.

Unfortunately, I can't post a picture of my little sister where you can see her face, because my parents are working hard to protect her privacy as someone so new in the world. But don't worry, I'll be posting a lot about our adventures together without breaking the new security rules.

I'm finding that with little siblings come a lot of new rules. I learned right away that I can give my little sister kisses, but not too many and not on her belly. I've learned to mind the stroller when we walk together. I also learned in our first crazy nights together that I can protect my little sister, but I don't actually have to fret over her every time she makes a noise. In fact, I'm so used to the new routine already that now I don't even wake up every time my little sister cries at night, because I know Momma and Dadda will take care of it. Besides, a girl like me needs her beauty rest...



I'm still working on our new strict rules about barking in the house. I've already improved greatly when it comes to having visitors here. It helped that my friend Kim brought me some gifts when she came to see the baby. Let's not forget that I still live here and am very special, too!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to playtime with Dad. I can't get playtime whenever I want it anymore - have to work it all around the baby's schedule - but it's worth it. My little sister and I are definitely going to be best friends!

Best Day Ever...Again.

I don't have a little sister, yet, but that's okay, because I've been making the most of every day I have left as the only baby girl in my family!

This weekend was an especially great one. Momma and Dadda were working around the house a lot of the weekend, getting ready for my little sister, since she is supposed to be born any day now... So, I got to spend a lot of time with them.

And even though they went to the botanical gardens on Sunday morning, I was okay with it, because I needed some nap times...and, we went to the dog park in the afternoon!

Even with our new camera, it is really hard to get a clear shot of me while I'm playing soccer...because I'm SO FAST!


But I did stop for a few moments so Momma could get a nice picture of my beautiful face...I definitely didn't stop because I was tired...


I'm also making use of the pool for as many days as I can. It's already getting a little cool outside, but I'm not ready to give up the pool quite yet!


Even though summer is coming to a close, I'm still making new friends, as well!


My favorite thing to do, though, is just to relax next to my Momma and Dadda. I know that our new adventure with my little sister will be full of all kinds of changes, but as long as I have my parents, I know it will be great.


Plus, I just know my little sister and I are going to be best friends.

Now We Wait...

So far, I'm not a big sister just yet. I've had to wait a long time for my baby sister to arrive, but it's getting much more exciting now that her "due" date is less than a month away.

(Secretly I hope that she'll come a little bit early, and Momma does too... shhhh)

Now, while I wait, I have a lot still to do. For one thing, I have to keep a tight watch over Momma. This is made easier by the fact that she moves more slowly these days and eats much more often. Next, I have to shop for deals on my favorite treats so that I am well-stocked with things to do during our big adjustment time as a family. I'm also fully participating in story time when Dadda reads to my baby sister at night, and, probably most importantly, I'm soaking up all of the attention I can get.



Just yesterday, in order to soak up extra attention and keep my guard post by Momma, I spent some really fun mother-daughter time at a park downtown, and the city has worked hard to revitalize what once was not nearly as nice as it is now. Yesterday was my first visit to the renovated park.



Momma brought our new camera - it's fancy and complicated, so she's going to be practicing on it a lot before the baby arrives. What better subject for her practice than a model like me, basically a professional in the industry?

I know I make it look easy, but I am sometimes a challenging subject, you know. That's why I'm the perfect partner for Momma's camera practice.

I didn't know until we arrived at the park that I would have the opportunity to take a dip in the water, but once I found that out, we really fell in love with the place.

We also met a nice photographer friend by the river, named Paul, who took some photos of me, too, with a camera even nicer than ours. Here's his best work with this most beautiful subject!



What have you been up to? I hope your summer has been as much fun as mine, spending time as a family, visiting with relatives and taking some adventures. Now it's nearly Fall, and I'm finally going to get to be a big sister!! Wish me luck...

Calendar Girl

I got some terrible news today: my most favorite treats - the kind I get as a reward for finishing all of my dinner every night - have been discontinued!


I can't imagine why anyone would want to stop making muttos. The outside and the inside are two different delicious flavors, and the size is perfect for my dessert every day. Now I'm going to have to settle for off-brand dog treats that aren't even sweet-potato-flavored. It's a tough life.

So, to keep my mind off of this bad news, I need your help:

I want to submit my photo to the 2014 Corgi Butts calendar contest, and I need to know which picture you think will give me the best chance of winning. I don't mean to brag or anything, but, as one of the prettiest dogs around, I think it would be fun to launch my modeling career by getting into this calendar.

Will you help me decide which of these photos to submit for the contest?

The first ones are from when I was just little, so that you remember how terribly cute I am. My more serious potential submissions are below. Keep in mind that this is for a calendar, so a seasonal photo may do best.





And now Spring...



Summer...



Fall...



And Winter!



Please let me know your top pick!! Remember you can find me, GoGo the Corgi, on Facebook. Have a great weekend, everyone!
