Winnie's Birthday!

It's Winnie's second birthday today!  I've been feeling a little under the weather so we didn't celebrate as much as we may have liked to BUT we managed a fun trip to the pet store and gifts! 

First we decided to go to Pet Supplies Plus because they sent us a birthday present.

Thank you Pet Supplies Plus.
Winnie picked out some fantastic things...


We got some Zuke's, All Natural moist training treats (great for stuffing in treat toys and something she's never had before), a can of Venison Natural Balance Dog Food (for a special dinner tonight, who wants dry kibble on your birthday?), and a Extra-large Jolly Ball!

The Jolly ball was actually a recommendation from Taryn (A Tale of Two Cardis) in a comment she left in a September post titled Unlikely Toys.  In Unlikely Toys, Winnie loved herding a big kickball around our back yard but popped it in a few days and the fun was over.  THIS one looks extra sturdy.  They have Jolly Balls with a handle for easy carrying but I thought that handle-less might be easier to "herd."

Here's a pic of Winnie rounding the bend with her new present...

I'm going to get you!

And apparently trying to ride it like a circus elephant...

If this were just a little BIGGER!
I think this will be a winner.  :-)  Happy Birthday, Puppers!  I think 2 is going to be a good year!

Dexter loved to herd soccer balls when I still had a backyard. He can pick them up and they don't pop!

your Winnie looks a lot like our Ein. We just lost him to cancer yesterday, and will be looking for another dog some time in the future. my brother lives in Michigan, and i was wondering if you would share the name of the breeder that you got Winnie from. Today, when I saw her pictures on Daily Corgi, it took my breath away, how similar they are...

Not a stalker, honest, just hoping for some help.
Thanks
