Kona the Corgi’s Many Quirks

Kona the Corgi at 10 weeks

Kona has been home for five days now, and in that short period of time we’ve discovered that she’s one quirky puppy. Here are the five kookiest things we’ve learned about her:

1. She loves NPR and George Winston. Whenever she’s stressed out and crying, we turn on Radiolab or This American Life and she chills out within a couple of minutes. The George Winston part I’m less excited about. And she hates the news.

2. At night, she’ll cry in her crate until we turn on a sleep hypnosis recording called Happy App. Then she’s out like a light for a full eight hours! (This totally amazes us.)

3. She’s not interested in her food unless it’s mixed with goat’s milk yogurt. (I know. I know.)

4. The sun is not her friend. When we go outside for walks during the day, she runs to the first shady spot she can find and will. Not. Budge.

5. But she loves the rain. We had a downpour on Friday and we got great walks in that day. She also loves being wrapped up in a towel to be dried off afterward. With her fur drenched, she shrinks down to half her width!

What weird things do your furry friends do?

Frock Files | Etsy Dog Finds

Hooray, we all survived the 4th of July! I missed you guys. It turns out that when I take an extended period of time away from Frock Files I get a little forlorn. While we had the best time last week while celebrating with our friends in Maine, by Saturday night I realized that I was itching to get back into the swing of things.

Last Wednesday I left you with a cliffhanger, suggesting that I’d reveal a secret today. Well, if you’ve been following me on Instagram and Pinterest, you may already know what that secret is: we’re getting a puppy! For the past year, we’ve been thinking about adding a furry member to our little family but we couldn’t decide on which kind. Finally, after a lot of research, a visit to a dog show, and an appointment with a breeder, we both fell in love with the Corgi breed.

Specifically, we fell in love with a little mellow fellow we met two weekends ago — a tri-color Corgi who nestled into the crook of my arm and stayed there until I reluctantly handed him back. While the breeder still hasn’t decided if he’s the one we’ll be taking home, we have our fingers crossed. In the meantime, we’re getting puppy prepared by hiding all our cords, installing child safety locks, covering our outlets, and, of course, shopping for all the things our pup will need to settle in. These Etsy dog finds are all on my list, and I’m just waiting until we get the final word before buying/spoiling this fur child rotten.

I’m in love with every single one of these items, but I’m just head over heels in love with Jacques, the French Baguette toy. The expression on his face is priceless. We imagine he’s saying, “Mon dieu! Please Monsieur Puppy, do not eat me!”

Do you have any furry family members or friends with pets you like to spoil? Or do you think animal lovers are a little bit crazy? I just read a study that said 73% of people confide in their pets. And why not? They’re the best secret keepers!

P.S. More wonderful pet accoutrements.
