Cricket Corgi

A day to day photo/story blog of Cricket the 3 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

I am simply his master, but this is his wish.

He believes every picture should include him, every occasion is incomplete without his presence, and every story should portray him as the main character.

So this is for him.

Important Dates Regarding Cricket:
May 5 (2009) - His Birthday
July 18 (2009) - First Met
July 23 (2009) - The day he came home

Yesterday afternoon I had a couple friends over, and with one of them came this dog here named Bella.

See, my boys (That would be Cricket and Rosco, of course) don’t have any friends because they never leave the house to make friends.

So I bought the friends TO them.

Cricket was most pleased, and had a very nice time trying to chew Miss Bella’s face off, in the friendliest way possible.

Was a good day.

Cricket likes having friends.

This morning I brought the boys out to play some fetch and to get some pictures.

Their tennis balls seems to stay in my dad’s truck for when they go to the park, so we have to make do with whatever else we can find. This time, an M&M that came from I don’t even know where.

Here we see that Cricket can be a calm and cool dude but we have to remember that he IS still a corgi.

Which counts for the other 95% of the time we play fetch.

As shown here.

No corgis were harmed in the capture of these photos.

Happy anniversary, Cricket!

Today is the three-year anniversary of the day we brought Cricket home!

I can hardly believe it’s been that long…

We picked him up a cupcake to celebrate with (And Rosco got some too, of course!) and they gobbled it all up…Carrot cake with peanut butter frosting, carob chips, and a dog treat on top!

I got some video but, well, Tumblr just won’t let me upload them anymore. So you can’t have that.

Anyway, here’s the photos at least!

The other afternoon, a sister of mine bought some chalk and drew all over the front porch.
When Cricket went out there this morning to watch my dad do yard work, he thought to himself, “This is the perfect place for me to nap, yes.”
And he lied down.
So when I went out a little later to ask my dad a question…
He was covered in pink and blue, most of which came off, except for that one blue paw that just won’t get clean.
His chin actually looked like he had pink lipstick on, but for the sake of saving himself from embarrassment he licked it all off before I could get a picture.

This is his expression of concern.
He hasn’t lost any weight!
This morning my dad brought him in (and Rosco too!) to get up to date on their rabies shots, and Cricket still weighs his 35 pounds.
Hm.
We’ll keep on trying to get him down to a healthier weight - 35 is right at the tip of  the weight scale for a healthy male corgi!

Look who got a trim…And a bath!

Cricket has been battling fleas for practically two weeks now, and this morning we brought him in to change things and clean him up a bit.

The good news is that he’s super soft and sharp looking, the bad news…

It’s most definitely fat, not fluff.

Shame!

To try and make up for how lazy Cricket and I are with this blog, have a video.

Everyone knows corgis have these random bouts of energy (otherwise known as frapping. Y’know, Frantic Random Acts of Play) and Cricket is no exception.

So here he is, getting his main source of exercise besides his nightly walks.

So, you’ll never guess who turned 3 today.
Okay, well, maybe you will.
Rather than celebrating Cinco de Mayo, today is all about Cricket’s third birthday!
I brought him out this morning to the flowers, but he wanted nothing of it. This was honestly all I got where he didn’t look terribly unhappy.
We played a few rounds of fetch, are continuing to give him lots and lots of pats and scritches.
It’s been a quick 3 years, he’s grown into a very wonderful (and lazy) corgi.

awalkonthewritersblock asked: i love cricket's expressions. each one is a masterpiece in their own right.

(It’s sad because this was probably sent forever ago but we’re never around)

Yes! Yes! Very much so.

Cricket appreciates your kind words.

Holy smokes! It’s been a dangerously long time since we (That is, Cricket and I) have wandered onto this blog. We apologize for that.

It’s not like we’ve been busy, as I will admit that Cricket is just as lazy as I am.

It’s also a matter of pictures, and with this photoset I show you all how difficult it can be.

Cricket loves to dress up, to be photographed, to be in the spotlight.

I mean, that is, when he wants to.

95% of the time he does not want to love all those things, and so this is the best I can get out of a so-called ‘photoshoot.’

These aren’t terribly recent, but they aren’t prehistoric, so we’ll just say they’re…up to date.

Cricket’s weight loss plan is going alright. Whether he has or hasn’t lost weight is unknown to me because our scale isn’t corgi-friendly and it’s hardly even people-friendly. It is what it is.

So yes, we’re all still very much existent, and we, as usual, apologize for not making that very apparent.

Happy Spring from everyone here at the Cricket place.
