How Much is Too Much? Kids and Dogs.

Blogs are fun.  They are timely, relevant, and help build a since of community.  What's not to love, right?  Well, they are also very public and most of the time that's what we want!  More readers!  :-)  However, I think it's also safe to say that there are certain things we don't want published for the world to see. 

So here's my issue... family.  How many pictures of people do you post?  Do you use their names?  Will they like what they read?  Naturally, Herding the Corgi is not a controversial blog but nevertheless I think these questions are worth asking. 

Why the sudden boundary of personal space you ask?  Well, much like Corgi Butts, Herding the Corgi will be getting a new addition!  My husband and I are expecting our first child in September.  We're pretty excited and we know that Winnie will love having something wiggly down at her level. (I think a "Get Low" onesy from the Corgi Butts store is definitely in order.)  And you KNOW that babies and dogs make for great entertainment. 

So here's what I need from you guys:
  1. Your thoughts on blog privacy
  2. Your thoughts on living with kids and dogs
Fire away!

As a side note, we've already instituted a "baby gate" to keep Winnie away from construction we're doing to get ready for Baby.  She doesn't love it.  Poor pup.  :-)

Seriously?  But how will I be sure you're doing it right?

Antler Chew Update

As many of you remember form my March 12 post, The Antler Chew Bandit, Winnie recently got a new deer antler to chew on.  We like this for sever reasons outlined in my previous post but the real test on chew toys is of course... How long to they last???  Well, just to give you an update Winnie started chomping away on March 12 when the antler looked like this:

March 12, 2011:  New
Today on April 6 it looks like this:

April 6, 2011:  Nice rounded tips
23 days and the antler chew lives to fight on!  :-)  The tips have been worn away but the bulk of the chew is still there and I can honestly say no funny smell, no staining on the carpet, no gooey ends.  Yup... the antler chew delivers.
