DSCN7323Gwen wrote a letter to Santa Clawz this year. ūüôā

Letters to Santa 2013



Gwen even convinced her “fire-breathing dragon” brother, Owen (my horse), to write one too. ¬†Though his is definitely not quite as good as these ones! ¬†(read them, they are hilarious!)

Owen just wants to live a very easy life…bigger stall, more food, less work…he needs to win the lottery for me then!

2013 CorgiButts Secret Santa Gift Exchange!

We participated in the Corgi Butts Secret Santa gift exchange again this year! ¬†Of course this year Gwen was a little impatient to open her present…plus we kept seeing other Corgis that had already opened theirs…we wanted in on the fun too! ūüėČ

Gwen with present.

“After I opened my prezzie I had to pose for pictures. (Silly hoomins.)”

Hi everyone! Gwen here.  Da hoomin let me tell all about my presents!  I got some Greenies Joint Care nom noms to chew on to keep my little dwarf joints all healthy!  AND I also got a Corgi squeaker flopsie!  Da momma is happy it has no stuffings but da daddy hoomin thinks I a pest because I take my new squeaker toy and jumps on the couch and squeakes it on top of him.  I is such a good Corga, not sure what he is talking about!

Isn’t this so cool?!

And just in case you are wondering where Hermann and his humans got this gem from I will post the link HERE for you. ¬†They also have all sorts of other breeds! ūüôā

Thank you to Hermann and his hoomins!!!!! ¬†I lurves my prezzies!!! ¬†— Gwen

The Corgi name(s) that we drew were Luna and Twinkie. ¬†They have already opened their presents and know that we were their secret santa. ¬†They have a Facebook page too! ¬†These are Gwen’s new fur-iends with part of their present from us:

Twinkie & Luna

We got them some nom noms and a couple little greenies and their human told me they liked bandanas so I made some bandanas and we got them puzzle toy too!  (Black Friday dog & pony shopping is AWESOME!)

One last thing to share was this Corgi Nose Art sticker that we got for Luna & Twinkie’s owner. ¬†I just happened to also buy one for my new car too! ūüėČ

Christmas is right around the corner!!! Gwen is getting her letter ready for Santa. ¬†Though I feel sorry for Santa since Gwen wants to leave dog biscuits for him…we tried to tell her he like HUMAN cookies but her reply was only, “why would I want to leave cookies out of humans for him?!”¬†

Pictures with Santa Pawz!

This year Gwen and I went to see Santa Pawz at our local Petsmart.

Picture with Santa-1

Andrew had to work that day so we went with a friend and her Chocolate Lab, Hershey. ¬†Hershey’s mom got the picture where both dogs looked good. ¬†I got the picture where Gwen looked goofy. ūüôā

This past weekend Andrew had Saturday off so we were able to get a family picture with Santa!

Santa blinked, I know, but Gwen kept being naughty so we took what we could get… SHE will most likely be getting coal this year in her stocking….

I Saw Gwennie Killing Santa Claus…

Gwen got to go see Santa today!  They also had one of the adoption things going on at Petco when we were there.  It was difficult to walk past all the dogs outside and then when we left going past them was doubly hard since we stopped to look.  There was a pretty Sheltie that was on the end that caught our eye.  We definitely are not ready for another HERDING dog to say the least.  Not until we have a nice BIG yard for them!  There was also a Min Pin/Pug mix.  He looked like a miniature Rottweiler!  Oh he was cute!

Gwen was a good girl for Santa!! ¬†She even helped to get some other doggies to pay attention. ¬†She ended up being the prop that got them to stare straight at the camera…I held her up so they would look up for the picture. ¬†For being such a good girl for Santa, Gwen got a new Santa toy! ¬†I wondered how long it would take for her to destroy it. It took less than 10 minutes to figure out how to get Santa’s head off. ¬†She UNTIED it! ¬†It was tied on since the body was basically a doggie pom-pom. ¬†She thinks it’s great! ¬†It’s like having two toys in one! ¬†A squeaky head and a fluffy pom-pom thing with legs! ¬†(See her handy work in the second picture…) ¬†Hence the title: ¬†I Saw Gwennie Killing Santa Claus.

Just another Christmas song adapted to fit the needs of a Corgi!

We are going to see The Hobbit in a couple hours once puppy goes to bed.  I am excited!!!  We watched 21 Jump Street this afternoon and when we (the humans) laughed Gwen barked.  I am not sure if she just does not like laughing or if she just wanted to join in the fun.  

Dear Santa Clawz…


Dear Santa Clawz,

My hoomans told me about you. You are big and have a chubby belly. My hoomans say I have a chubby belly. But I am not fat. Just a short corgi puppy with no tail. ¬†My name is Gwen. ¬†I am almost 8 months old! ¬†My hoomas say that they are taking me to see you on Saturday. ¬†Please don’t use your claws on me!!!

The hoomans say that you bring presents if I am a nice corgi and that naughty corgis get yucky things for Christmas. ¬†I don’t quite understand Christmas yet. ¬†Alls I knows is that there is a giant intruder with sparkely lights and boxes under it in my house. ¬†I like to chew on the boxes but mommy and daddy don’t like that.

Here is my list of things I really, really wants!

  • Antlers! ¬†— I will eat magic ones from your reindeers please!
  • some squeaky tennis balls
  • treats, treats, treats!
  • A puzzle toy ¬†— mommy & daddy said this would be good for my brains!
  • Floppy frisbees since I chewed up my other ones. ūüė¶
  • Kong squeaky stick like we gave to our Corgi friend
  • Stuffed animal squeaker toy ¬†— I like to rip out its guts!
  • A new pretty collar. ¬†Maybe a blingy one? ¬†Pleeeease? ¬†I like to be a stylish corgi!

Please bring my mommy and daddy lots of prezzies too! ¬†They’ve been good! ¬†They walk me and feed me and give me lots of tweats ¬†and take me to the park and take me shopping give me water tortures only sometimes! ¬†They iz good hoomans!!! ¬†I promise!

Love,   Gwen

P.S. ¬†The hoomans said to say, ¬†“All I want for Christmas are some Orders, please!” ¬†They said it’s like that song “All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth!” ¬†And that you are supposed to sing it when you reads it. ¬†The silly hoomans want to know where we are going to move to and we are still waiting patiently! ¬†Or they are. ¬†I gave up. ¬†I think we will live in this little box forever.
