My adorable dogs!

Ok, this isn't a great picture, because the light in the hallway isn't too great, but here are my two corgi girls! The red one is currently named Daisy, and the black one is currently named Maggie, but I think we'll change both names. They're very hard to photograph because they don't like to hold still! I had the perfect image lined up, they were both sitting at my feet next to each other, looking up at me, but when I depressed the shutter button, they both moved their heads. I have lots and lots of bizarre ghost dog pictures, with blurry half-there heads.

The photography gods really weren't with me today, actually. I made these earrings, called Underworld, and I only managed to get one so-so image. I'll have to try to take more tomorrow or over the weekend.

It was fun to make something Gothy today. I haven't been doing a lot of Goth jewelry anymore, mostly faerie and steampunk stuff. It's nice to go back to my roots every now and then!


  1. Finally! Puppy pics! Oh my, they're adorable. I'm surprised they sat long enough for you to take the pic :) I'm not surprised that you have plenty of 'ghost dog' photos to sift through. Congrats on adding two beauties to the family - oh yeah, how are the cats?

  2. I had a Corgi about 25 years ago that looked very similar to your Daisy but with a bit less white. Her name was Wobbles. I hope that your girls are as good as mine was. I surely miss my little dog.


  3. They are adorable!!!! Have fun with them. I know how much you were looking forward to having dogs!
    Do yourself a favour, AJ, take the time to really train them. It will make your dog owning years so much more enjoyable. Just because they are small, doesn't mean they shouldn't be trained.
    I look forward to more pictures!
    cheers, Denise

  4. Your "girls" are darling. You will have a lot of fun with them.


  5. Yep, they're very cute! Whose toes are in the upper right? And the Underworld earrings are very cool!

  6. Thanks everyone! I'm going to make a really long reply here.

    Charlene, it was very hard to get them to sit still! The cats are iffy. Lira actually seems to have mostly accepted them, whereas Topher is mightily offended by them.

    Karen, Wobbles is such a cute name for a corgi! It fits their walk very well :)

    Denise, we're already working on a few commands at home, and in November the girls will be going to obedience class. I agree, it is so important to train your dogs, no matter what size! It makes for a happier home and a safer dog.

    Marilee, those are my toes ;) The dogs kept licking them :P In fact, they like to walk up to Chris and I and lick our feet while we're at the computers, which is quite a shock for Chris if he doesn't see them coming.
