The potatoes decided they wanted to start wearing their mush versus eating it. Most prefer kibble (Diamond Naturals Puppy), and all are handling non grain-free foods just fine without any allergic reactions so far. Corgis don't normally have issues with grain, but some do have issues with dry skin. Usually switching them to a grain-free diet doesn't fix the dry skin issue, but if this happens to your pup later on, it's best to have a vet check them out as it 'might' be grain based or another allergy type.
Anyway! We bathed half of the pups today and will do the rest tomorrow. They had their nails done, were bathed with Burts Bee's pup shampoo (one of my favs) and then I sprayed them with a quality coat conditioner called Ice on Ice. Conditioning is very important and I suggest you buy a bottle of one. I have a few I use, if you want a list. Some are less expensive than Ice on Ice. With one Corgi, you won't go through a bottle fast, but you'll definitely see a difference in coat quality if you use a decent dog shampoo and conditioner. Helps with shedding too!
They got their pads massaged ( for adults, I do weekly baths, and then massage paw pads with Bag Balm so the skin remains hydrated and supple. You don't want cracking pads), they get their ears wiped out, and nails done. Then, they got stacked for evaluation because I like seeing if they could be show dogs. Some are actually looking real nice in the topline so far!
I'll post pics of the drowned rats tomorrow. LOL
Hope everyone is doing well and getting excited!
