Tub-O-Puppy Mama

I talked to my breeder last week and she sent me this pic of my tubby-looking puppy mama. I'm no pregnant dog expert, but according to her, this is how a pregnant dog looks.

What do y'all think? I also don't know when this picture was taken. She's supposed to be due the middle of December. Why isn't it December yet?!

She's a cutie! Mid-December will come sooner than you think. I don't know how pregnant corgis look, I saw a photo of my corgi mama the day before she gave birth, and I thought she just looked cute! I'm sure when you know how big the corgi mama usually is, she looks tubby. Plus look how happy she looks!

Yeah, I figure she looks pregnant because she looks a bit overweight, and I'm confident that she's not an overweight dog un-pregnant.

Hehe. I got you to say "puppy mama". ;p

Ok, technically your said Corgi mama, but still...

Greetings! Unfortunately, some dog walkers discover a danger, only sadly, when victimized and so I wanted to inform you of StreetZaps.

Just so you know, I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units and contribute to Wet Nose Guide and New York Dog Chat. Happy safe year!

Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed, self-protect.

Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie., plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness. And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to it.
