HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! I hope you all had a wonderful, wonderful weekend. My mom and I had a really nice day together, and I made a very cool cake for the first time! I was SO excited it turned out okay, I haven't really made cake before, and I knew she would love it. Love you, Mama!!! Here she is:
On the theme of mothers, I want to ask you what your experiences are with your corgi having puppies. Or, corgi mamas! :) Don't get toooo excited! I am still just thinking about it. But, Finn is not fixed, mostly because we all were secretly wondering about her having pups. I have never loved a dog inside and out as much as I do her, and I would be so thrilled to meet her babies and see them grow up. She'd be a great mom. I feel like any little corg-lette of Finn's would be an amazing creature. I am wondering what your experiences are!! And about the parts I don't know about, like after the little corgs are grown, is there a big personality change in the mom? No more silly hyper puppy-like behavior? Would Finn still be Finn? Maybe this is ridiculous, but hormones do crazy things. Would she have saggy tummy skin and dangly nipples forever more? Sometimes I see mama dogs with really loose skin. How many corgis did your corgi have? I have read 4-6. Was labor difficult?
We met a very nice boy corgi at the pet store the other day and his owners were interested in discussing the potential for puppies. I haven't called them yet... I feel weird signing Finn up for sperm. But she has the option of not liking him, or not being interested, and maybe they have changed their minds. It's all very much still up in the air. I feel discussing it is a good first step.
I want to thank you all sooo much for your input on Finn's lumps. It has helped me so much. We are heading back to the vet and she is going to look at them again now that they are almost gone, which leads her to strongly believe that it is some form of allergy. I will let you know what comes next! We are returning Finn to her old food as of today, because I'm not sure what else has significantly changed over the last two or so months except that we did change brands. Maybe that'll do the trick! I am interested to learn more about why allergies can cause subcutaneous lumps in the mean time. Will keep you posted!
