Molly, my first corgi, would retrieve as long as anyone would throw for her, and retrieving from water? The best of all. She’d swim out and fetch a stick (or a ball) all day long, long past the point of trembling fatigue.
Corgis really *can* swim and bark at the same time…..
Molly loved all “natural water,” but baths?????? Not a chance (remembering that Whiskey loves his bath). She would go into a wading pool to retrieve a ball, if she really couldn’t reeeeeach it from any part of the outside, but she’d be right back out, the minute she had the ball.
My second corgi, Sophie, didn’t like baths, either, but loved the wading pool. She’d go in and lie down…. Both she and Buzz loved chasing the spray from the hose…. 🙂
Oh my! I had no idea you had a chessie! I’ve owned two…Chester and Chloe. They are the most fun dogs ever! Mine were big talkers-looks like Whiskey is too? Seeing these photos brings back some wonderful memories. I especially love the last few head shots of Whiskey…he has that deep intense look that is so typical of chessies.
Leland’s still up and around… we’re very thankful for that. He’s eating well (no grain!) and we’re doing everything we can to get him to drink more water. He’s still peeing in drops… some days better than other. We just got ammonium chloride and will begin treating him with that today, so please keep your fingers crossed for him. xoxo
I really like reading your blog and seeing what the boys are up too. a wonderful bunch of donkeys.
This has nothing to do with this posts but I just read where a military group that had been in Iraq kept a donkey for a pet. they have returned to the states and just this week were able to bring the donkey to the states. it is named smoke because of its color, you might like to goggle it and read the story. heart warming.
He’s looking like he feels a lot better, but still peeing in drops. At times though, the drops are more rapid, almost like a stream. That tells us he’s still got some stones in his bladder/urethra, but as long as he’s acting like he feels better, we’ll take it.
When we saw the vet on Friday, she told us that we should resume their pasture time because exercise would be good for Leland… so, they’re out in the pasture now as I type. Leland’s appetite is definitely back. 🙂 No more sweet feed, though!
Thank you so much for asking about him. Have a great Sunday. Hugs.
