When I made this website a few years ago I wanted something very simplistic and understandable to explain basic color genetics in Corgis. I tend to get complicated and to be honest, I found a page of info that I thought was well done. It was on a free site so I couldn't give credit and here's where I was bad: I didn't check it in advance of posting it up with my own little illustrations. I soon forgot about it and then in 2020 I found out that I had stolen someone's intellectual property. I swiftly removed it from my site. As an artist, I know the frustrations of people using my work.
But, I didn't remove all the links. I forgot one page that I thought I had as unclickable and the links were still active there. Once again, I messed up. So, I formally wish to apologize to Juliana du Pree for snatching her work and not giving her credit. It wasn't intentional and I fully accept that I'm 100% at fault here. I feel ashamed and embarrassed and ask her forgiveness for the frustration and anger I caused. She did not deserve this and I am so very sorry. I have no excuse other than my own laziness in not following up with checking in advance.
From now on, even when rushing or tired or any other excuse, I shall make very certain that if I utilize someone else's work, it will either be accredited, permitted and if I cannot find who wrote it, I simply will not use it.
I'm very sorry Juliana. I truly am.
I have been making roads to update my website and honestly with Covid, I got side-tracked with life. I will be updating this more often with fun things as well as puppy things! To make up for it, here are some fun pics of my currently available litter!
Demon had 5 adorable pups by Stibbons!
As of right now, all of these pups will be going to wait list folks.
Lilly has been bred, I'll keep you updated.
For those interested:
1. I am in Eastern Washington and thanks to Covid, I cannot ship at this time. So if you're not relatively local, I'm probably not going to have a puppy for you in 2020.
2. You can see my pricing on my planning page (look under the tabs, you'll find it).
3. No, you're not guaranteed a puppy. I come first, and I do not breed to meet supply. I'm not a puppy mill.
4. If you join my Facebook GROUP (not page), answer all the questions or you won't get in.
5. More later...
Well Goose had her final litter and this would be the first time I've pulled almost exclusively from my wait list, and have nearly all the buyers on the FB group, so most of the updates have been there. I'll be uploading the 'formal' pics from this point forward however, so you guys can peek and see them.
I will hopefully have a couple more litters this spring, and planning at least 1 this fall. The spring litters will be by Stibbons, so all pups will be either Sable or Red as he's homogyzous for it.
Until then... Hope to see you on FB!
I understand now seems like a brilliant time for getting a puppy. You have time off, you got your stimulus check, it's 'go time'!
I appreciate this... and will be talking to each of you that emails me with a filled out application. It may take me a few days or even a couple of weeks. So, I will give you the information you want here:
1. I do have a waiting list. I'm more than happy to add you on, but I cannot guarantee you'll be getting any pup from an up-coming litter if you are approved. There's always a chance, though.
2. The only dog pregnant right now has a reservation on all female pups at this time by me. This will be this dog's final litter and I will be wanting her replacement and will be choosing first.
3. If you're seriously wanting one of MY dogs and just not 'any' Corgi, then do join the FB page (see link up top). It shows me you're truly interested and committing to not only my pup but potentially the Outlands community.
Ok, I'll apologize! I forgot to update this page!
I currently have two litters and they're the final litters until around fall. The two litters are under the Available pups link! Go check out the current cuties!
Where: Shari's Restaurant (1820 Kittelson Rd, Moses Lake, WA 98837).
Time: 10am I'll stay until you arrive but have mercy, I do have pups at home to take care of and can't stay an entire day waiting on you to arrive. I do end up chatting a bit with you guys ( :) ) so 10 isn't a hard time, but yeah try for it.
What YOU bring:
* ID. If I don't recognize you, you're not getting the pupperoni.
* Consent form - if applies - I'll print it off on my end and have your pick up person sign it for me. I'll be taking a pic of them with the form. So please let your pick up person know this ahead of time. If I know your pick up person, clearly no pic is needed, but the form is.
* A blanket - it's cold, your pup is in a climate-controlled home. We hit the big electric bill numbers to have your pup in a 70-degree house for all but the last 2 weeks of its time here, which temps are then brought down to 67 degrees. Your pup is going to get frosty nips going from my home to your car. A fluffy towel works too and probably is better to wash. Your pup WILL pee on it.
* A bowl for water. Your pup won't need food for a drive back to the west side. You'll have a bag of treats and some food for it to entice it to nibble if needed for the ride home. Food isn't a big deal, water is. Pups that age can dehydrate very swiftly. Stopping to give your pup a drink is something you want to do. If it won't drink, make it by wetting fingers and putting them in and around your pup's mouth to stimulate the response to drink. I provide the water.
* A collar/harness/lead. I bought a bunch of pup harnesses and leads a while ago but not all pups fit into them anymore, so if your pup doesn't fit it, I won't send it in the puppy pack. You don't 'need' these items but if you're going to put your pup on a pad outside on a rest stop... because you know better than to put your pup elsewhere right? Right... the pup is surprisingly agile and can escape you. Having control of it is a smart idea.
* A carrier or plan in advance how you want to haul this pup back home. Carrying it can be a messy process! Pups can get car sick and usually do. They pee too. You'll want to plan ahead. A carrier gives them a den they can relax in safely, or deck out a footwell with pads and a towel for them to relax in. It'll give you a rest from carrying this squirming bundle of fun too.
* $$ if you haven't already paid for my services. Cash, cashier's check, money order Walmart, or in advance via Popmoney or Paypal IF you're a past client. If you don't have the payment, you won't get your puptato and you'll have to go back empty-handed and reschedule a pickup. That will end up costing you my boarding fee and I might make you drive to Latah as punishment because I'm evil. Just ask Meghan! ;)
What I'll Bring:
Puppy, puppy pack, a gallon of my water, the entertainment of seeing me ramble on in confusion as I talk to you all about your pups. That's always fun.
The below image is my car. It's easy to find.
Since I didn't update here, I'll give you the low down. I got very sick, ended up breaking out in a big rash after feeling like having the flu, then a bladder infection... went to the doctor and found out I had scarlet fever. Yeah... seriously lol. So after shots in my rumpus of antibiotics and dexasomethingsteriod all that ever so sweet rash is almost entirely gone! Life has improved! So with the pup countdown, I'll go over a few things here today:
The pups are doing great. I didn't take them out yesterday, so they're a bit stir crazy today. I'll be letting them run around later but they're not happy about the 'later' part. It's actually a good lesson for them that they don't get what they want all the time. They're bursting with energy and being told to settle. Nezha is NOT liking that option. The rest are in various stages of 'okay' about it lol.
When they get barking, I tell them "You're fine, no barking" and since these are trigger words for them, they settle (Nezha and Atlas bark a bit then settle, Wisp whines then whines quieter when told to settle lol). They got a treat of wet food for their positive behavior in this. Corgis and their bellies!
I also did some 'silent' work for them, by turning their TV off at night. They were a bit confused but took it like champs. It doesn't bother them to lack the outside stimulation to keep quiet at night. They got praised and now get limited night stimulation to transition to their new homes.
Tomorrow, they get more harness training and I'll continue to work with positive pressure and release when asked to walk a short distance on a leash, to release off a leash tug and to stand or sit (because they're puppies) by me quietly on a leash. I don't expect a lot at this age, but they learn the concept of it. It's up to you to continue it.
Bite inhibition is now a thing. Most had it a week ago but there were a few hold outs (eyes Nezha and Atlas). They are strong in the concept of 'no' and release or retreat when told "Gentle". Saryn is a sneak though and likes to bite feet lol. She'll be worked with a bit more here since she's staying - so I'll expect more from her. ;)
All paws can be played with, all bellies can be touched, I ask them to stand (stacked) for examination and they do pretty well. They all adore the cat with a passion. The parrots are always present so they have learned not to fuss about the birds (My Greys love to peek in at the pups and talk to them), and if they do the crowding/barking/jumping nonsense, a stern 'no' corrects them (the pups, not the parrots, because they don't gaf lol).
They're all weaned off wet food, so I use it as a treat now. They're all happily on Purina Pro Plan Savors chicken formula without issue. You can feed what you wish, but you'll get a small baggie of my food to transition. You'll also get a gallon of my water to transition from water's bacterial load to yours.
Right now, you should be getting kitted up for your new pup. Food, toys, etc. I suggest you buy a bag of my food (Amazon) and a few cans (or case) of Purina Pro Plan Puppy as well. This is just to settle your pup in without messing with his stomach in this stress period.
Your pup WILL be stressed even if s/he doesn't show it. Everything new is a stressor and adds emotional and physical pressure on the pup's body (even good things), so the first week should be calm and relaxed. Let your pup settle in before whipping him out to show everyone. Try to resist it. The more you keep your not-completely vaccinated pup away from outside stressors right now is best. Less hands, more routine and structure mean better settling in. Plus, you lessen the risk of Parvo taking hold on a reduced immunity body.
I take Parvo very seriously... so no Petsmart 'new puppy grooming!' trips. No wandering about letting random people touch puppy. No putting puppy down on the ground outside your home. In fact, on the way home, I'll be providing you a couple of puppy pads to put down so you can put your pup ON the pad to potty. Be smart.
I'll be making one more post after this about pick up stuff, so if you aren't prepared by then, feel free to ask questions (my site has a great section on puppy stuff, go read it again). And lastly, the part I do dislike... final payments are required before pup leaves my grabby hands. Cash is fine, bank or Walmart issued money order is fine, no personal checks, no Paypal if you're not a previous client. Popmoney is fine but I think it'll take 2 deposits because they're being shits. Anyway, prepare.
If someone is picking your puptato up for you, let me know in advance. I have a consent form that both of you will have to sign. Okay that bit's over with. Whew.
It's almost that time again... Time is FLYING! So, here's my offiical post for the Moses Lake Meet Up! Those of you wanting to meet there to pick your puptatos up, I'm thinking of Dec 14th (Saturday). Thoughts?
Also, I know I've talked to all of you before about dates and such, but please give me a heads up if we've made arrangements for keeping pups longer, just to touch bases and stuff again.
More pics and videos soon (pics here, videos on the Outlands FB page! Remember we switched a group format so if you're a part of Outlands Corgis on FB and not Outlands Corgis Meet Up, you're in the wrong group and missing so much! Just click the Facebook button above to join the right one!
Puppydoo pics tomorrow once Meg comes home (she had to work through her normal days off thanks to the holiday). The battle loaves will be 6 weeks shortly and soon we'll be having the talk about the Moses Lake Meet Up!
The pups are all hitting their milestones and most are done nursing. Saryn is still the only hold out, really wanting momma and not entirely handling the dry solids as well as I would like to see. She'd rather nurse than crunch. Does great on wet food, but still prefers nursing. The rest couldn't care less if Goose is there or not. If weaning amounted to the ability to feed oneself, they'd be weaned. But, they have a while to go yet before they're ready.
Several aren't quite willing to give up their biting on siblings, so bite inhibition is something they're continuing to work on (with siblings lol). They're just having too much fun being bad (eyes Nezha and Oberon) to their sisters. Saryn will start fights and then shriek when they retaliate. She's the smallest outside of Ash but Ash is very on par with the group whereas Saryn is still a needy mommas girl lol. There's always one. She'll snap out of it all of a sudden and be little miss independent anytime now, Inaros gets miffed when his sleeping is disturbed, Atlas is the biggest and knows it. Nezha... well. He just knows he's too cute for words. Wisp and Ivara are besties, and joined at the hip and both are out to get Atlas, which is amusing. Atlas lets them pounce and attack him and just gives that happy Midas grin before he tramples them into dust. LOL Good times!
Shots on Wednesday! They've had 2 wormings so far, and will have their next tomorrow. No worms floating in fecals, and all poops are solid and look great. They did have a bout of loose stools after the last worming, so I expect to see it after this one too. Wormer is harsh on baby tummies at this age since I'm using Panacur versus the 'baby wormer' Nemex-2. There's ya update! :)
Remember my group page on Facebook has a lot more updates and videos that are problematic to post here. Including individual videos. Please do join the group and get included in the madness. :)
Check your folders!
Pups are doing fabulously! Meeting their milestones very nicely!
Puptatos are doing great this morning! They're eating wet food twice a day, they're eating dry food in between and are nursing about twice a day now. The suckers really prefer solids to milk. I swear, this litter!! Warriors! Playing happily and got wormed yesterday (first worming was 2 weeks old). Soft poops today because of it, but that's not uncommon, especially when they're now digesting solids and nursing. I'm letting them spend the day without bothering them too much. Both because I'm working with Stibbons and because their bodies need to be under less stress from the worming. Tomorrow it all starts up again for them!
One more week and they get the first of the Neopar shots. Mom's immunity lasts between 3 weeks to 10 weeks, with the majority of the immunity lasting to about the 5th week of age before it wears off. I like to slide in with Neopar at week 5. Neopar doesn't affect the mother's immunity, but if they're already covered by mom, giving it is meaningless.
Individual pics on Monday (when Meg's off).
They're getting very cute... and fighty! Pics are up in the albums! They've had their first foods, then turned into hobbits needing first breakfast, second breakfast...
No props, unfortunately. They are doing fantastic! A couple are a bit smaller than their litter mates so we're giving them some special one on one time with momma, assuring they're not being pushed off teats by their bigger, bossier sibs! Eyes are open, ears are open, and they're starting to bark, howl and play. They enjoy human touch and settle nicely for pets and snuggles. Very brave potatoes so far.
The 2 week pics are in their folders!
Just finished having her tater-tots! 8 lovely pups! All the reds are boys, and 3 of the tri's are girls. Two of the tris girls are spoken for. Not sure if they're BHT or RHT as of yet. Momma is doing great, and we're ALL bushed! So, I will be updating with pics and then if you've read my site (you read my site, right?), if you're chosen for THIS litter, I will contact you. I will have 2 more to go this fall/winter so if you're not ready this round, I have Goose's daughter and Lilly planned to breed.
But for the next few days, I'm dead to the world. LOL
Just a quick hello to everyone out there! It looks like Goose is indeed pregnant! She should be 38 days today! Wooo! So, cross your fingers and keep your eyes open for puppy posts!
After applying for and going through a screening process, we're happy to be a part of the responsible breeder's program at Gooddog.com! Yay!
