Hello Corgi Lovers!!

This Saturday, the 3rd of December, is the BIG DAY for the Corgi Corps!! Don’t forget to bring a sign with your Corgi’s name on it to hang around your neck – the bigger the better!! Corgi Christmas Costumes are encouraged, but totally optional.

We have been asked to line up around 1:15 pm (no later than 1:30 pm) at The National Sporting Library & Museum, which is located at 108 The Plains Road in Middleburg. That is on the west end of town, just south of the intersection of Route 50 and Route 626 (The Plains Road). For those of you who have been in the parade before, this is the same staging area as last year (refer to attachment for more info). This is the email I received this past week from the Parade Committee:

Thank you for participating in the 2011 Middleburg Christmas Parade, on Saturday, December 3rd. We hope this will be a joyful, celebratory, festival day for all.

· This year’s Christmas Parade steps off at 2:00PM

· We will organize from the staging areas into the parade lineup beginning at 1:45 pm

· All entry participants should be ready to go by 1:30pm

· Arrival at your staging area can begin after 11:30am

· The Middleburg Hunt Review goes through town from 11:00am to 11:30am. Washington Street will be closed during that time, so plan your staging arrival after 11:30am.

Your listing is: Corgi Corps

Your staging area is: NSLM The National Sporting Library and Museum, 102 The Plains Road, Middleburg, VA 20117

Please remember that all Corgis’ need to be on a leash, and bring pooper scooper bags just in case!

Whole Dog Journal Tip of the Week: Homemade Cooked Dog Food Diets

Most dogs have little problem switching to a home-cooked diet. If your dog is prone to digestive problems, you may want to make the change gradually. Add just one new ingredient at a time and wait a few days to see how your dog does before adding something else new, gradually increasing the amount of new food and decreasing the amount of the old.

If you add a lot of new ingredients at one time and your dog develops problems, it's harder to tell what the cause might be. If your dog vomits or has diarrhea, return to his prior diet and make the change more carefully once his digestive system is back to normal. That may include feeding the new food separately from the old (at least a few hours in between meals), and feeding only one new food at a time, to see if your dog reacts to any of the new ingredients.

For more information on Home-Prepared Diets for Dogs, purchase any of Whole Dog Journal's ebooks on the subject:

Whole Dog Journal Tip of the Week: Understanding Dog Growling

Growling is a valuable means of communication for a dog - something that dog owners should appreciate and respect rather than punish. Of course, we don't want our dog to growl at us, but neither do we want him to fail to growl if something makes him uncomfortable; that's very important information in a successful canine-human relationship.

It's very common for dog owners to punish their dogs for growling. Unfortunately, this often suppresses the growl - eliminating his ability to warn us that he's about to snap, literally and figuratively. On other occasions, punishing a growling, uncomfortable dog can induce him to escalate into full-on aggression.

So, if you're not supposed to punish your dog for growling, what are you supposed to do? The next time your dog growls at you, try this:

Stop. Whatever you're doing, stop. If your dog's growl threshold is near his bite threshold - that is, if there's not much time between his growl and his bite, get safe. If his growl doesn't mean a bite is imminent, stop what you're doing but stay where you are. Wait until he relaxes, then move away, so you're rewarding the relaxed behavior rather than the growl.

Analyze the situation. What elicited the growl? Were you touching or grooming him? Restraining him? Making direct eye contact? Taking something away from him? Making him do something?

If you need help to create and implement a behavior modification protocol, contact a qualified behavior professional who is experienced and successful in modifying aggressive behavior with positive, dog-friendly techniques.

For more details and advice on modifying dog aggression, purchase Whole Dog Journal's ebook, Approaches to Modifying Dog Aggression.

Hero Dogs of 9/11 - petcentric by Purina

With the anniversary of 9/11 approaching take the time to remember just how much dogs helped humans in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

We’d like to remember just how much dogs helped humans in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. If there was ever a time in history where dogs proved their distinction as Man’s Best Friend, it was during this unimaginable and overwhelming tragedy.
