AKA apparently time to ignore me entirely, smell all the things, and enjoy our neighborhood fully.

Sorry about the hiatus with posting. Life has been crazy as of late. I hope it calms down soon, so I can share all the dori and Ralph pics. They’re both doing well, had a joint vet visit today which was all aces.

Another perfect summer evening with these two clowns

Splish splash!

Sunny summer Sunday with these two goofballs.

It’s impossible to get a picture of them standing still together…

Happiest of days!

Today is the one year birthday of Ralph and the Geology litter!!
Before Ralph came along I never thought I could live another pup as much as dori doodle. Now I question how I could have ever entertained that notion.

Ralph is the coolest. He’s such a relaxed little dude, and brings so much love to my life. I love him so!

Dori and Ralph just successfully obeyed a “here” command from 100 FEET on the first call.

I could not be more proud of my goobers!

CANINE FLU ALERT: 6 CONFIRMED CASES IN PROVIDENCE, RI

Just received this email from my vet.
Please signal boost if you know anyone in new England. Canine flu can spread like wildfire if untreates.


NEWS FROM THE 
RHODE ISLAND VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (RIVMA) 
Canine Influenza Virus Diagnosed in A Providence Boarding Kennel/Daycare Facility 

Canine Influenza Virus has been diagnosed in a Providence boarding kennel/daycare facility. RI State Veterinarian Scott Marshall has been working with the owner to manage what was originally thought of as a stubborn strain of kennel cough. 

Dr. Marshall will be working with the facility owner to control the infection. He suggests that RIVMA members consider CIV as a differential diagnosis in patients with respiratory illness. Dr. Marshall also suggests counseling clients who use facilities where dogs commingle as to the risk of CIV and the best ways to mitigate infection, including avoidance of those areas and vaccination. The decision to vaccinate against CIV should be made by a well informed animal owner and only their attending veterinarian will know the risk/benefit for each individual patient. Any dog that boards at a kennel or day care, uses dog parks, goes to shows, or otherwise commingles with other dogs of unsure health status is considered a risk of contracting CIV. 

This particular strain of virus that is currently circulating is thus far not causing severe signs. The veterinarians that Dr. Marshall has spoken with have not reported fever as being a consistent sign. The dogs have been, for the most part, showing signs of illness that are milder, including mild cough and nasal discharge. Thus far, all have responded favorably to supportive care, some with antibiotics and some with anti-tussives. One veterinarian felt that the clinical course of the disease was very similar to typical kennel cough, but that the dogs she was treating were well vaccinated against kennel cough (common causes). 

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Scott Marshall, RI State Veterinarian at 401-222-2781.

The corginsteins LOVE Frisbee.

Well… Dori loves to chase Frisbees. Ralph just wants to trot around with one in his mouth, and occasionally attempt to bury it.

(Note: I wasn’t letting him run; his Eunuch-ization wound is still too fresh! He was just sort of meandering around)
