Hello! Meet Gatsby and Scout. They are brother & sister Pembroke Welsh Corgis. They love playing fetch and tug, In N Out meat patties, squeaky tennis balls, and the occasional frozen yogurt. They are the best of friends.

Gatsby was born on December 10, 2011. He is AKC registered as "Fitzgerald's The Great Blue Jay." He's a happy-go-lucky ham and he loves sleeping in. He is named after "The Great Gatsby."

Scout was born March 4, 2013 and her AKC name is "Jean Louise's Lady Mockingbird." She is named after Jean Louise "Scout" Finch of "To Kill A Mockingbird." She is sassy, bossy, and every bit like her literary namesake.

My corgi Mingus wants to know how Gatsby keeps on his socks. Mingus uses a cart to get around outdoors and scoots inside. In the house the only was to keep socks on him is to tape them on. You can see Mingus and his brother Coltrane on The Daily Corgi blog, June 20, 2011.

I use Velcro One-Wrap. They come in rolls at your local craft store. I got mine at my local Joann’s for $9.99. I believe they’re also on Amazon. It’s my first time using this and I don’t know why I didn’t think to use it before. It keeps the socks on much better. The Velcro One-Wrap is great because literally no sewing is involved. You just cut a piece long enough to go around their little stumpy legs, wrap it around and secure. That’s it! Super easy. Hope that helps.

ps: bravo on the jazz-inspired names! love it!

Such a nice surprise from our agility trainers! I received this cute card in the mail today. Perfect timing since we have trial in one week.

This came in this month’s PetBox. It’s cheese flavored. I really don’t think they understand how it’s supposed to work as towards the end, they were just licking the entire bottle (and my hand) and Scout was licking Gatsby’s cheek.

True story.

Baby Gatsby hydrating.

Fun fact: on the day we arrived at the breeder’s to take him home, we were outside on her front porch going over some last minute puppy care stuff. Gatsby was out there with us, along with his corgi mama. There was a bowl of kibble there and he ate a whole meal, drank some water, and waddled over to a corner and promptly started napping. He must have gotten food coma.
