New Blog

Hey all, I have a new blog! Teach, Cook, Run, Love Dogs and Carry on.

I made another blog because non-dog related stuff was making it's way here. If you only want to read about Bender and Bones keep checking here, I'll keep this blog updated with their antics. If you want to read about my life and my hobbies (teaching, cooking, and running) check out the new blog!

I'm Slacking...Again...

Hello everyone in corgi blog land! I know it's been a while. Here are a few quick updates.


Bender is doing well, although I think he has obsessive disorder. He spends HOURS sitting in the backyard staring at the fence. I think there's a cat on the other side. Sometimes he'll sit two feet away and stare. Other times his nose is smooshed against the fence. He even tried digging under the fence which resulted in a broken knuckle, gash on paw and $40 vet bill.

Here are some recent photos of Bender. (If you have Facebook, you've seen them.)

Green Paws! (You wouldn't like the corgi when he's angry!)

Enjoying the sunshine and freshly mowed lawn.

Corgi Burrito!

Bones is his goofy self. Enjoying the warmer weather and spending time collecting tennis balls in the backyard. He's up to 8. He's also become my running buddy while I train for my 5k's. I swear the only time he can move in a straight line is when he is running.

I've officially not renewed my contract and will be jobless as of June 2! (I still get paid over the summer though.) Looking for teaching jobs in Idaho, Arizona, Texas and Michigan. The husfriend has applied to University of Arizona, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Michigan. Not sure where we're going or what we'll be doing but I'm sure the universe will guide us.

I ran my second 5k yesterday. I didn't run the whole time. :( I slacked on my training. Although I finished my first 5K at 35:10 and my second at 39:51, so not bad. Training for another next month. I want to run the whole time and finish in under 30 minutes.

I'm running the school play. This accounts for the lack of posts. My usual day looks something like this: School 8-3:15, After School Program 3:15-4, Play Practice 4:15-8, home by 8:30-9, sleep. Repeat M-T sometimes Friday. Our play is on the 25th, 27th and 31st. I love my play kids, but I'll be glad when it's over with. I'd like my life back.

I promise I'll get better with the posting when school is out. These last 3 weeks will be crazy, hopefully I'll have time to post on a more regular basis after that.

Hope all is well with my fellow corgi bloggers!

My Calendar Boy (a month late)

Kelly over at CorgiButts makes these great corgi calendars each year. Bender was the April calendar boy for the More Corgis (with blogs) Mini Calendar. I didn't get around to posting it in April. I loved looking at his face on my calendar for 30 days! :)

We're Healthy Omega Gourmet Dog Food Giveaway Winners!

Kelly over at CorgiButts did a Giveaway for Healthy Omega Gourmet Dog Food. We left our comment and she notified us that we won!

I shot her an email saying I wanted any of them except salmon. (I have a life-threatening seafood allergy. Even the smell makes me horribly sick.)

To my surprise when the package arrived I received two bags! Lamb and Chicken. I thought we only got one! If I would have known I would have taken all three and donated the salmon to our local shelter.

We've only tried a little as treats but both Bender and Bones seem to approve so far!

Thanks Kelly and Gibson!
