Did the usual, much dreaded monthly nail trimming. I used a nail clipper instead of the dremel to shorten the agony of the session (it’s a lot of yelping and struggling… I’m a bad hooman, I still haven’t been able to get him on friendly terms with the Instruments of Death). I thought I did a good job but then realized I cut into the quick of one of the blackened nails. Now the rainbow socks have come out and Chubby’s just sitting on the couch like a crippled corg (he refuses to move with the socks on), looking all sad and pathetic. Meanwhile I’m sitting next to him, trying to comfort him like, Yes, I’m the worst hooman ever! I’m so sorry Chobley I still love you PLEASE TAKE ME BACK!!!!
Dreading our next nail trim.
Anonymous said: I've got a corgi who is one of those little tyrants of doom, but we've tried (and tried, and tried) to train him no little effect. He's so stubborn that not even food motivates him to give up his life of crime. He's about 16 months old now, and I worry it's too late for him to learn to be a law-abiding citizen. I know you're probably not an expert on all things corg-like, but do you have any advice?
I would go to someone who is an expert on all things dog-like: a dog trainer! A one-on-one session with a good trainer can help you get to the root of your dog’s behavioral issues and begin the journey to rehabilitate him from his “life of crime” through consistent training (you will probably more than one session though if your corg really is the little monster you describe!).

Aside from a brief dalliance with Acana Wild Prairie, Chubby’s been on Fromm since he was a pup. We rotate among all the Fromm Four-Star Nutritionals Grain Free recipes - Surf & Turf is his favorite. Chubby is a VERY picky dog and Fromm is one of the only foods he will eat (he tried Honest Kitchen, hated it). Fromm is great because they’re a privately held family company whose products are made in the USA. They also offer unconditional money back guarantees for all their foods - an awesome feature if you have a picky dog. I would probably feed Fromm to Chubby for the rest of his life if I could, but our vet says it’s bad to be on one brand of dog food for such a long time so we’re switching after this current bag is done.
