Waffles the Corgisaur
Saturday Q&A
was waffles timid about bigger dogs at first? my new baby corgi is a little scared of big dogs
Nope, the bigger the better.  He loves any dog.
I just brought home my very own tri-colored pembroke welsh corgi yesterday. His name is Goron. (“Gore” for short) any advice for a new corgi parent?
We were big fans of crate training so we could sleep through the night.  Also, be patient for the biting/barking storm that the youngsters go through.  Buy a good vacuum and a deshedding brush.
what kind of camera do you guys use to photograph and take videos of waffles?
This kind.
Happy Belated Barkday Waffles - Love from Eva the Diva and Sir Winston Piccolo (And Mom Susan!)
pudgypaws asked you:
Oh, almost forgot….Happy Birthday! Since we all know that Corgi gotta Corg, we wish you many birthdays to Corgi On. Loki, LMPP
Happy birthday Waffles! <3 Hope you get lots of treats!
Thanks everyone.  He had a great birthday with his hat and balloon!
Hey Waffles! A Google search for ‘waffles the corgi’ lists ‘Otis the corgi’ as a related search. Are you and Otis cousins or something along this line? BTW, I am a huge fan. I even want to be a Corgisaur for Halloween! I fell in love with you when you were still floppy. Loki, aka Little Miss Pudgy Paws
Nope, not cousins.  But they are roughly the same age! 

At what age did you start taping Waffles’ ears and how long did you tape them for? We just got a corgi puppy who is 8 weeks old and I’m wondering at what point I should consider taping his ears up.

He was around 3-4 months I believe.  They would occasionally pop up for a few minutes, so the tape just helped them along!  You don’t HAVE to tape either.

Hey Waffles, First of all, I love the name man. Very clever. Second, I’m slightly envious of your hedgehog toy and am always looking for good places to get some new toys for my collection. Where do your corg-rents get all your toys? -Sherlock
We get most things from Amazon!  Just pay attention to the reviews.
Has Waffles flown yet? I see he’s attempted multiple times!
He tries, and with the ears and the floof he may just be able to reach the kitchen counters someday!
Monday Q&amp;A!

noahnate asked you:

It&#8217;s taking a little more effort with obedience and leash training for my rowdy Aussie puppy. I&#8217;ve also tried a few different harness styles. Did you have trouble with Waffles? What do you walk him with? Also, what is Waffles&#8217;s favorite waffles topping?

No, Waffles was weird and was totally fine with the leash and collar.  I think there were so many distractions outside he didn&#8217;t care anyway!


electric-sympathy asked you:

Waffles is the best possible name for a corgi

Yeah, our backup name of Fatty McPumpkinbelly wouldn&#8217;t fit on his tags.


thecorgi asked you:

Dear Waffles: You are awesome. Can you tell me about all the cool stuff on your window sill? Do the cacti have names? What is the nifty glass hangy thingy? I&#8217;m all ears.

This.  The glass thing is a barometer.  Tells the corgi when its going to rain.  Superpig is up there too.  The cacti don&#8217;t have names, but we&#8217;re up for suggestions!


Anonymous asked you:

Is Waffles ticklish? I propose a video giving him tummy rubs and making his leg do that cute thing that dogs do when you find their tummy spot! :3

There&#8217;s a special Halloween video coming that may feature some corgi tummytickles!


Anonymous asked you:

I am considering getting a Corgi. How much does Waffles shed?

A serious amount.  We furminate him outside weekly and its still not enough!

I heard Waffles was looking for a sister. I&#8217;ve got a female corgi&#8230; maybe we could work out a timeshare of waffleness?

For a small fee of 800 bully sticks, you can have a beautiful weekend with Waffles!


Anonymous asked you:

What party does Waffles most identify with. Has he picked a running mate yet? When will Waffles release his tax returns? What are his core values. Does he have a plan to save the world from evil doers, such as cats? These are the questions that the voters need to know.

Waffles belongs to the Shedding Party.  No running mates, Waffles doesn&#8217;t like running.  They don&#8217;t have tax returns for Waffles, the amount of money he makes doesn&#8217;t fit on any form.  His core values are: bones, shedding, being afraid of cats, eating, eating, and cuddling.  Most importantly, his poops are very consistent.

kg1030 asked you:

My fiance and I have an almost 4 month old Cardigan Welsh Corgi named Finnegan. His ears seem to want to come up and then flop back down. Do you have any tips for perky ears other than taping, or is patience the main thing right now? When did Waffles&#8217; come up? :)

There&#8217;s lots of rumors on the internet about how to help (calcium, yogurt, etc).  Who knows.  Taping worked for Waffles.  Patience!  One ear also came up about a week before the other woke up.  He was about 4-5 months old when they came up.  LOOK AT THIS.


pandamonium411 asked you:

Do you live in California? Specifically in the Sacramento area? Because I saw a corgi at the dogpark the other day and his name was WAFFLES! Either omg, I saw a dog celebrity, or your influence is MIGHTY, and people are naming their own corgis after yours!

Nope, Waffles is in MD.  I think Waffles is becoming the John Smith of the corgi world.


tawnyfrogmouth asked you:

About 28 pounds of BEEF.  or HAM.

brightsouls asked you:

How did you know that you wanted a Corgi in particular? How long did you think about getting Waffles before you actually got him? Ps Waffles is the reason I want a corgi so bad! :)

LOOK at them.  They are stumpy little sausages, how could you not want 7 of them?  I wanted a corgi for years before getting one (have to have a nice place and a job, corgis don&#8217;t like college dorm rooms).

meandmycorgi asked you:

ojlivers09 asked you:

Waffles,where are you? I miss looking at your cute little bunny butt!

Waffles was at summer camp (grandparents house) for the week while we were on vacation.  They have 2 dogs, so he had a blast!


adorabledori asked you:

So, I bumped into another dog owner who apparently knows waffles! Is waffles a rhode island corgi, and if so, can we have a puppy playdate at SKDP? Your pup is the coolest! - dori (and Jules &amp; Evan)

Nope, sorry! :(  Waffles is in Maryland.  Waffles is always open for play dates though!


Anonymous asked you:

can waffles do awesome balancing acts like hazel?

No, Waffles, being a young corgi, is still way too hyper in the diaper for that kind of patient trick.  Corgi ADD is a serious problem around here.

He&#8217;s better!  Back to his normal self!

Like all corgis, he can be a butthole sometimes.  But for the most part he&#8217;s pretty sweet.  He only barks when he wants to play and you&#8217;re ignoring him.  A lot has to do with how much time/effort you put into training.  And every dog is different!  He&#8217;s great with kids, goes into ears back cute mode and tries to lick their faces.

I was having a blah evening and then I looked at Waffles’ adorable, derptastic shenanigans and all the frustration and annoyance of the day went away! I can’t wait to get a corgum of my own one day. Give Luftwaffles an extra pet for me for being an awesome, cheery pup.

Waffles is at home while we both work during the day.  It&#8217;s a little harder when they are puppies, because their wittle bladders are too small, so you should try to come home for lunch.

We&#8217;ve thought about it.  I think 2 corgis in an apartment would be a circus.  Perhaps when we have a personal yard.  The potential name is Penelope.

No, but I&#8217;m pretty sure he&#8217;d be a Hufflepuff.

Watch out with that cone! My boy Pembroke has a grass allergy so he spends time in the cone during the spring to prevent paw-chewing, and he&#8217;s learned to use it as a tool/battering ram!

Thankfully he&#8217;s pretty much out of the cone now.  But he was pretty good at bumping in to EVERYTHING.

How are your guys&#8217;es carpet so clean? I have got to dogs and the floor is dirty and hairy xD

Woofles gets brushed (outside) about twice a week, and the carpets get vacuumed once a week!

We need a dog-sitter if you are interested&#8230; free cuddles!

Q&A Tuesday (the photo above…its not what it looks like…i swear…)

Does Waffles sploot or torpedo anymore?
Yep, check out his sploot in his latest video!

Do you have any children, or if you don’t, have you introduced Waffles to any children? How well is he around them?
Waffles is pawesome around kids.  He is very gentle, puts his ears back, and goes into face licking mode.  Kids love him.

This is so damn adorable :)
We live with his aderpableness everyday…

Does “Woof”les have an infant car seat that he sits in? If so, how do you attach him in so that he stays safe? I wouldn’t want a waffles sandwich if there was a problem!

No, but I’m pretty sure he’d be a Hufflepuff.

Friday Q&amp;A (with Waffles stalking his prey)
Anonymous asked you:
I love your little flopasaurus derptastic corgi. mine recently passed away so im now living vicariously through you. Just wondering if Waffles happens to like a little puppy bagel treat from einsteins bagels? they were my pups favorite!

He hasn&#8217;t tried those yet!  We&#8217;ll have to try one (or two).  He&#8217;s always up for snacks though.  He acts like we don&#8217;t feed him.

robertsrants asked you:
Im wanting to get a dog this summer, and corgis are on the table. The only problem is I want atleast a semi active dog who will be able to fetch and run with me. What do you think? Corgis like waffles are just so damn cute I cant NOT think about getting one myself.

I&#8217;ve heard they can overheat easily?  We&#8217;ve only had a corgi in winter so far, so we&#8217;re not sure.  Waffles runs pretty well in dog park though, although that&#8217;s short bursts followed by sploots.  They definitely are active, and always want to be part of your business.
Anonymous asked you:
how did waffles become famous?

Acting classes.  A good agent.  Lots of PR campaigns.  He had a lot of connections on the inside.  I&#8217;m not going to say theres a corgi mafia&#8230; because it doesn&#8217;t exist&#8230; :-|


Anonymous asked you:
Is Waffles derpy on purpose or does the camera just catch him derping off-guard? Also, I love his Easter get-up. It is currently my desktop background on my work computer (don&#8217;t tell my corgi, she&#8217;d be super jealous). He looks equal parts adorable and terrified. Does he hate clothing? My corgi abhors it.

I&#8217;m not sure why he&#8217;s so derpy,  I think he&#8217;s just a little derp nugget naturally.  Yes, he hates clothing.  I think he was just really tired in that photo. 


mamaofallmesses asked you:
Such a sweet Corgi!! We have two, and I was completely curious, from one owner to another, does Waffles ever try to herd you? Our dogs go CRAZY if we horse around or are in the pool, to the point where one will jump in to nip us.

There hasn&#8217;t been any human herding or nipping yet.  He does &#8220;herd&#8221; the other dogs at the dog park, but only because he can&#8217;t run as fast as them yet.


madkris asked you:
When waffles runs, does he have to adjust his ears for better aerodynamics?

You mean attack position?  Yes.  And angle the deflector shields.


terricottontail asked you:
your dog just made my day omg. hahahaha HE&#8217;S JUST THE DARLINGEST THING. I&#8217;ve always wanted a corgi.

Yes, he is very darling.  And pretty.


bowserrr asked you:
Waffles you should come to Canada so we can hang out!

We&#8217;re working on getting the passport.


noahnate asked you:
at what age did you start teaching waffles tricks? any resources (books, vids) you recommend?

ASAP! This book and this guy.  He&#8217;s more positive based training than someone like Cesar Millan, who is dominance based (which can make things worse if you don&#8217;t know what you&#8217;re doing).

Anonymous asked you:
I saw a marvelous Doggie Language poster (link) starring Boogie the Boston Terrier, and thought how wonderful it would be to have a waffles dictionary in similar manner. Could you ask the internet to help?

HALP!
