What's New


Well, it hasn't seemed like anything too exciting has been going on here lately (I haven't even taken any photos!).. but I suppose some of you may be interested in what Gibson has been up to!

Let's see.. um, well last night he woke us up to poop 3 times.  Fun stuff!  I actually ended up sleeping on the couch so I was closer to the door if he needed to go out again.  Not sure what that was all about.  Here's hoping for a less poopy night!!

This past weekend we went to my parents house and Gibson had the time of his life.  We got to take the fun walk through the woods around the lake for the first time this year and guess what he did... He JUMPED in the lake!  I know, I couldn't believe it.  My mom always chucks the ball for Coal across the lake onto the other side..and she jumps into the lake, swims across, finds the ball and swims back.  It's impressive.  Usually, Gibson just stands and cries and barks until she gets back, but this time he jumped in!  With no hesitation. And got some air!  It was awesome.  Another moment where I wish I had my camera.. but basically,  he looked like this:

Get me outta here!

...only picture cold murky lake water instead of a nice warm pool.  He was so excited to jump in, but as soon as he did he swam out a tiny bit and then circled around with that look on his face like, "holy crud it is freezing!"  He still thought he was pretty cool though ;)

Spring is finally starting to pop up and Gibson is a happy dude.  Walks are way more fun now that it isn't freezing.  We now walk 2 miles almost every morning!  It is crazy, but it makes Gibby happy.  He gets so sad when I do not walk the way he wants to go (geez, I'm a pushover).. so we keep going.  I can't complain though.. it's good exercise and it lets me spend more time with the pup!

Spring also means it's chucking season!  Playing fetch outside is way more fun and gives Gibson a much better work out..  which means less whining to play and an earlier bedtime.  Score!

Well, I think that's it for now.  Hopefully there'll be more to talk about soon!

Today, on St. Patrick's Day, I feel very lucky for my little puppernutter, Gibson.  He is my good luck charm and can always put a smile on my face (even when I am exhausted 5 minutes after I wake up in the morning and just want to snuggle under some blankets for a little while longer, but he demands a 2 mi walk.. yes, even then.).  All he has to do is look up at me with a huge grin on his face as if he's saying, "I love you mommy, life is so awesome!"

I want my presents!

After that, he owns me.  I'll do whatever he wants.. and it's worth it :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

"Luna has never had an antler chew. Currently Luna loves chewing on plain rawhide the most. Yes, she has had her bully rings that she adores as well, but my brother/roommate thrills at letting people in on what it is made from."

Congratulations, Briese!!  Please email me at ksteck23(at) with your name, address and size of antler you'd like for Luna.

Antler Dog Bone Giveaway!

Surprise! Another giveaway! This is one of my favorite giveaways I've had to date because its for one of my favorite dog products out there: Antler Dog Bones!  Not only that, but my favorite company that makes antlers is sponsoring it: Peak Antler Company!


Antlers are the best chew toy or treat a dog can have.  Why?  They are safe, odorless, won't stain, won't splinter, won't get slimy and are completely digestible.  Plus, dogs love the marrow inside!  Oh and they last FOREVER.  The price seems steep at first, but considering that they last months and months while bully sticks and rawhides last minutes makes them a bargain!  Plus,  it's much less embarrassing explaining to guests what it is than explaining what a bully stick is...

Gibson has been chewing on Antlers from the Peak Antler Company for over 2 years.  I love them because shipping is always free and fast and the antlers are super high quality.  And since antlers are shed naturally, no animals are ever harmed.. they are just collected from the ground!

So would you be interested in an antler of your own?  Here's the giveaway!


Leave comment here telling me if your dog has ever had an antler chew before or if not, what their current favorite chew is.  Please leave your name and/or email address with your comment.  Anonymous entries will be thrown out.

1 Winner will receive one (1) antler and pick either the small (4-5"), medium (6-7") or large (8-9") size (Gibson prefers the medium size).

I will choose a winner using on Friday, March 11.

Good luck!!

If there is one thing Gibson takes very seriously besides eating, it's sleeping.  If he gets less than 18hrs of sleep a day he is not a happy camper.  He sleeps pretty much the entire time that Ben and I are at work, and then he starts winding down again around 7 or 8 at night.  He'll hop up on *HIS* chair, or if we are being too loud, he'll go into the other room where his dog bed is.  By 9 o'clock, neither of these options are comfy enough, so he starts letting us know that it is bed time.  How?  Well, by hopping up on the stairs and giving us this look...


It's his, "It's bedtime, ma!" look.  It is the most pathetic thing ever.  He usually will start at the bottom stairs, and inch his way up every few minutes.. hoping that we'll give in and carry him the rest of the way to the bed.    It is way too funny.   If we take too long, we'll eventually look over and he's not there and then we hear a thud from upstairs which means he jumped up on the bed.   He's a serious sleeper.

The first time he did this we about died.  He never went upstairs by himself and definitely never jumped up the bed.  We were watching tv and couldn't figure out where he was.. we looked everywhere and then finally checked our bedroom.  There he was fast asleep.  Such a little dork :)

Does your corgi have a night time routine?  Does he sleep in bed w/you or have his own private spot? :)
