Happy birthday sweet girl!
Today is Scout’s first birthday!
Oh, our little Jean Louise. I don’t even know where to begin. She’s our little firecracker. It’s funny because when I first got in contact with her breeder, we were told that she’s actually “very mellow”, and to be fair, Scout was really mellow when we met her. But the next day — literally, the very next day — upon bringing her home, she showed her true colors. So sassy, fearless, and adventurous. So much personality in that tiny little body. She is our resident goofball.
We couldn’t be any happier with her, and we are so so glad to have her. She’s the perfect complement to Gatsby, and Gatsby loves her very much. I have lost track of the number of times that she has caused trouble around the house, but I’d be lying if I said she didn’t make us laugh the same number of times, if not more.
Happy, happy birthday to you, Scout, my #1 girl and the queen of my heart! Mama loves you SO much (even if you’re unabashedly a daddy’s girl)!
[Thanks to Auntie Rae for the fabulous birthday crown, feather boa, and birthday goodies!]
"Get outta the mother fucking way!"
Feel better soon!
So, Miss Lili had to take an “emergency” trip to the vet yesterday. *IF YOU HAVE BARKBOX AND A CORGI, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY READ THIS. You can skip to the last paragraph to save some time* She had been unable to keep anything in (either end… ew) and it had been going on for about 18 hours. Given her medical history, (she ate a bottle of ibuprofen when she was little) I always err on the side of caution and get her checked out whenever anything happens. Her regular vet was full for the afternoon, so I ended up taking her to the vet my parent’s dogs go to.
We got to Petcare Hospital & Wellness center in Mill Creek, and it was super clean, the staff was very friendly, and they were able to get Lili in within 45 minutes of my call, even though it was almost closing time! When the Veterinarian, Dr. Kristi Batterman, came to see her, she was so friendly and was great dealing with Lili, who at this point had gotten extremely shy (which is SUPER weird for her) and nearly refused to come out from between my legs under the bench I was sitting on. I think we may have found Lili a new Vet!
Turns out, that the big long tendon treat from this month’s Barkbox may have been too much for Lili’s little belly to handle. She ate the whole thing in one go, so I’d highly recommend to any other corgi (or small dog) owners to divide the treat into several smaller segments before giving it to your dog! Lili was treated for slight pancreatitis and an upset tummy, which meant and anti nausea injection, anti-diarrheal medicine for 5 days, and a bland diet for a week. Thanks for those of you who wished us support on Facebook!

I used this tutorial as a reference and made a few changes for portability. It took about 20 minutes to prepare/cut the pipes and 20 minutes to assemble/tape.
- Pole height: 24”
- Distance between poles: 24”
- Supports: 12”
Materials (Length/Quantity for a two-pole section):
- 3/4” PVC Pipe (96”)
- 3/4” End Cap (4)
- 3/4” 90-Degree Elbow (2)
- Optional: PVC Cement, Tape
- PVC Cutter or Hacksaw
Lowe’s had everything I needed. I don’t think Home Depot had the elbow fittings.
The space between each pole meets AKC requirements but I’m not sure about everything else. It’s a nice height for corgis :D
