I am glad to announce that our dear Penny is feeling mucho better! Apparently she had been out eating poop and roly polys in the backyard and they weren’t agreeing with her. The only reason I know this is because she started throwing up again later at night and I literally dug through her vomit and sure enough, there was poop and about 50 roly polys in it. So gross. I guess the rain brought out all the bugs and she thought it was buffet time! We just have to be more vigilant about the poop and roly poly scavenging. But she’s all better now, she lost about a pound in water weight because she was so dehydrated, but she’s well on her way to getting back to her old self. :)

  11. Give your pups a belly rub for Penny! She threw up 11 times today within a span of 30 minutes. I was freaking out, so we ended up bringing her in to the vet and they said that she probably ate something that didn’t agree with her. Poor baby is exhausted from being dehydrated. The vet said we should observe her and only give her water for tonight. Here’s to hoping she feels well by tomorrow! *crosses fingers*

  15. Hi there, I just got a corgi puppy and he's the cutest thing ever! Only thing is, his teeth is razor sharp and he loves biting my hands and nipping my feet when I walk. How do you teach them to stop biting you?

    When Penny was a puppy, she was a big biter! Whenever she felt bitey, I usually did 2 things. First when she would bite me, I would make a loud “yelp” noise that would demonstrate to her that what she did hurt me. Instinctively, puppies play bite with each other and when they hear that “yelp” noise, they immediately think that they are hurting the other puppy and will stop biting. Secondly, when she starts to bite or chew on my hand, I would quickly give her a chew toy. With this method, you’re trying to redirect her attention onto something that is appropriate to chew on.

    I hope that helps! Plus, here’s a helpful site that has a lot of info on puppies that bite and nip: http://www.dog-obedience-training-review.com/how-to-stop-a-puppy-from-biting.html
