Winston’s Favorite Things

Hi, Sir Winston Churchill here!

Since I came to live with Mom and Dad at ten weeks of age, I have noticed that they are always busy working on their business.  That’s good because that means they can buy me more toys . . . LOL!

I decided that when they are busy doing their thing that I should now do mine.  So instead of wasting time chewing on my RV home, I have decided to start a business of my own.  I know when kids are young they start lemonade stands or have paper routes, but my legs are too short for those activities.

So, I decided to start an online business. That’s something I can do given my short stature and Corgi smarts.  With the extra money, I can buy my own toys.  Since I know you want me to be a happy Corgi, maybe you can help me out! Just visit the link on this video and see if my suggestions for great pet items might benefit your fur-kid.  These are things I use and love.  Mom has searched high and low for things that make me a happier and healthier Corgi. 

I would really appreciate you supporting my business efforts!! 

Thank you!

Mom and Dad learned about Marine Phytoplankton many years ago while studying ways to cure disease through proper nutrition.  They discovered that this superfood has many properties that allow the body to function at its best.  So, they figured if it’s good for them it would be good for fur-kids too.  So, not only do they take this supplement, but Mom puts it on Lindsey’s and my food too.

DOG TRAINING IDEAS

As a puppy Mom and Dad wanted to be sure I learn to walk on a leash.  I need to go out many times a day to get exercise and to do my business.  I learned I can’t potty in the RV but I need to go out.  So when I do have to go, Mom found this great harness for me.  It is easy to get on, it’s comfortable for me, and it’s escape proof so If I get scared I won’t run off.

dog harness

Gooby – Escape Free Easy Fit Harness
ESCAPE FREE – The harness reduces the space around the back making harder for your dog to escape the harness by backing away during a walk.
LIGHTWEIGHT – Lightweight neoprene body, as well as strong POM plastic D ring, adds functionality without being bulky.
EASY TO CLEAN – The harness is very easy to clean. Just machine wash cold and hang dry.
EASY TO ADJUST – Move the adjustment tab up and down for easy sizing adjustment.

________________________________________________________________________________

I am a pretty rambunctious puppy and Mom says I have some bad habits.  The worst one is my barking.  I just can’t help myself!  I hear something and I just have to respond back the only way I know how.  But Mom and Dad don’t seem to be pleased with me when I bark at every new noise I hear.  I have learned that talking when I have to go out is oaky, but barking at every little noise is not.

I learned that with the help of a training collar they got me.  There is a remote control that they use to sound a beeping tone when I get out of control.  If that does not work then the collar vibrates.  I don’t like that very much.  One time I was really making a lot of noise and Mom must have hit the remote because I felt something I had never felt before.  It scared me and I stopped all the barking.  Lesson learned!

DOG TOYS

I love to play soccer!  I bat a ball back to Mom or Dad, whoever wants to play with me.  Here’s a new toy that I have really been having fun with!  I really like the flashing ball.  I can find it under the bad when I miss catching the soccer pass.best dog toys

I love to play!  Being a Corgi, I need to expend all my puppy energy.  Mom got me this toy because it makes a cool noise, I can play soccer with it, and even get food out of it.  This is my favorite toy!

Corgis also love squeaky dog toys!  A Hedgehogz is one of my favorites.  I love to throw him up in the air and chase him around.  He also makes cute grunting sounds!  This is definitely a “Winston-approved” toy for any dog.  He is great to cuddle with too!

Being a puppy I can get scared very easily.  Also, since I am an RVing dog, I come across a lot more things than other dogs that live in one location all the time.  I can be in one location one day, and the next day I am five hundred miles from there.  There is always something new for me to get used to.  During some travel days, Mom gives me these little tablets to help calm me down.  They have a natural relaxing effect on me.

Since I create a lot of waste, and Mom and Dad are responsible pet owners, they have little bags they use to help clean up my mess.  They are in a little container that attaches to my leash and it makes cleaning up little surprises easy.   Mom then takes my bagged bundles of love and throws them out.

Since I am a fluffy Corgi that has long and thin hair, it gets matted easily.  Dog grooming is an important part of fur-kid care and I need lots of that!  My breeder recommended a steel comb for grooming the longer haired areas of my cute little body.

Corgis love to have a place to sleep, a place of safety, and something to help with the den instincts that we are born with.  When I am not sleeping under the bed I like to hang out in my dog crate.  Because it has two doors it adjusts well to many situations.  It fits great in the truck and the side door makes it easy for me to get out.  I am not a big fan of the truck so I feel safer in my crate.  I also travel in the RV in my crate because it is much safer for me.

I don’t need these but I thought I would share this item because Lindsey wears them.  It has been a great thing to help keep Mom’s sanity.  Because Lindsey was born in 2004 she is now an old girl!  She can’t control her bladder anymore so diapers are a great way to help keep the RV from being ruined with dog urine.  Lindsey seems to not mind wearing them.  It kind of looks like she is wearing a Speedo . . . LOL!

Mom and Dad have been fur-kid parents their entire married life!  They know how to keep us healthy as stated earlier.  They believe that our teeth are very important and need to be brushed each night.  When I was a puppy Mom started sticking her fingers in my mouth and massaging my teeth and gums.  Now she uses a finger brush and toothpaste to clean my teeth.  The toothpaste tastes great and I really like it!  Without proper dental care, dogs can develop dental diseases that can affect organs like the liver.  This is what I like!
