Literary Litter

Our newest litter of little corgi nuggets are all claimed and awaiting their forever homes.

Puppies will be ready for their homes October 21-Nov 2 (we let the puppies tell us when they’re ready and will keep you posted. We’ve had litters ready as early as 6-6.5 weeks and as late as 8-9 weeks depending on their independence) Remaining balance is due Oct. 1

If you’re curious about our litter, want to learn about dog training and corgis ahead of getting your puppy (highly recommended as corgis are energetic, fun, and slightly crazy pups when they’re not in loaf mode.) Check out more about our litters here.

Oct 17: The current schedule is pretty predictable. Wake up, eat breakfast, and play outside and from about 7:30-9 (we scoop them up as they start to run out of steam and put them back in their indoor pen) this often results in a little frustration because they “aren’t tired”. 2 minutes later, they’re asleep for their first long nap of the day. Then, repeat around lunch for an hour or two of intense playtime (they have a live-in big sister that has been their biggest fan), then again around 5pm, then around 8pm… then they’re in bed for the night. This little schedule works well for the moment. They’re getting more used to the routine (this is their first step towards potty training and acclimating to a schedule) and get lots of playtime with their siblings as well as their mom and the other “big dogs”. They are getting more coordinated every day and enjoy trampling through the grass and chasing the big dogs. They’re moving fast so it’s sometimes tough to get super clear and good photos of them, but they’re doing great 🙂

Oct 5: The pups have been munching on puppy food for the past week but still prefer milk snacks. They are getting more playful and are excited when they get to spend time with people.

Sept 26: We graduated into our playpen today! (thanks to Haruki navigating out of the nursery pen) Our sensory training really begins now. We’ll get to see big dogs and even cats during the day! Mom isn’t sure about the exposure but she’ll get used to it. We’re learning to use our vocals – we play, growl, and fuss when we’re hungry. We can see and hear and get excited when it’s time for snuggles from our human friends. The new space is pretty exciting and we’re learning our way around our extra space (it’s a whole 9 square feet!!) I think we’ll get used to it pretty quickly but the world is a big place – who knew!?!
Sept 22 Update: We’re starting to see the pups play and get more vocal! They chew on each others paws and faces, snuggle, and are getting a tiny bit more coordinated every day. They love to be picked up and snuggled and all of them enjoy sleeping on their backs 🙂 If you’re following along for your pup – scroll down to their section and feel free to save or download the videos as they get posted for your own memories. We’re looking forward to sharing specific updates for each pup as they grow.
Sept 12 Update: The babies are gaining weight as expected and getting bigger every day. Fun fact: the 1 week old puppies cannot hear or see yet. They’re all so sweet and cuddly, spending most of their time climbing over each other to get to mom the fastest and getting in a ton of sleeping. Mama Aloe spends most of the day nearby watching over them while they sleep, feeding them, and snuggling up with them. We can’t wait to keep sharing more as these babies grow! Watching them all sleep on their backs and halfway toppled over their siblings, it’s pretty obvious they feel safe and snug.
Sept 6 Update: Babies arrived mid-day yesterday and are warm, cozy, and healthy! There are 5 puppies – 4 tri-color and 1 red & white. 3 girls and 2 boys. Mama Aloe is doing great and tending to them 99% of the time – she goes outside to potty and quickly returns to snuggle with her pups. We’ll record their weight and markings – note that markings can/do change as they age a bit.

Haruki (CLAIMED)

Physical Description: Male, Tri-Color: Red & black face, he’s a chunky, teddy bear looking corgi, white belly, 4 white socks, white tip on his tail. birth weight .34lbs

Oct 14: Haruki is a chunky and silly little pup. He is 100% comfortable being toted around like a baby but also enjoys his play time outside with the others. He is a happy and playful little guy.

Sept 22: Haruki is a big bear of a pup. He is a calm guy and loves to be snuggled. He gives sweet nuzzles and kisses to us and his siblings. I expect he will have a pretty red face as he gets older (usually shows up more prominately around 8 weeks) and his black fur has a little lighter / brown undertones. This guy reminds me of his dad.

Sept 26: Haruki caused the litter to be graduated into their playpen instead of their little baby pen. This big (little) guy wanted to escape to find his mom and human play toys.

Marlowe (CLAIMED)

Physical Description: Female, Tri-color with 3/4 collar with arrow pattern pointing towards head, white belly, 2 front knee-high white socks and 2 back white toes – birth weight .33lbs

Oct 14: Marlowe is our tiniest girl. She is such a silly and sweet girl. She loves to be snuggled and loved on, enjoys playing with her siblings and was the first to almost escape from the play pen. Marlowe is happy exploring on her own, but loves to snuggle and play with her littermates.

Sept 22: Marlowe is such a sweet girl – she is calm when petted or picked up. She loves to snuggle with her siblings and has opposite nose markings from her brother Holden. Her arrow shaped collar is super cute and she is a huge fan of naptime.

Sept 26: Marlowe is pretty chill today. She loves being picked up and snuggled and smooched. She’ll happily stay on her back and melt in your arms.


Physical Description: Female, Tri-color with 3/4 collar, white belly, 2 front knee-high white socks and 2 back white toes – birth weight .33lbs

Oct 14: Arya is the most adventurous pup of the group. She enjoys chasing her human friends around the backyard and is a fast, spunky little lady. She has figured out the doggie door, thinks all the “big dogs” are her best friend, and is an independent little babe.

Sept 22: Arya is often caught napping on her back and never misses a snacktime. She enjoys being held by her human caregivers as well as snuggling up with her mom and siblings. She falls asleep wherever she lands and seems to always find a cuddle buddy.

Sept 26: Arya is chatting and showing a little bit of sass to her siblings. She’s got the sweet corgi play growl and it’s been fun to watch her use it 🥰

Holden (CLAIMED)

Physical Description: Male, Tri-color brown eyebrows, white spot on nose, white half collar with wishbone pattern, white socks and tip of tail – birth weight .29lbs

Oct 14: Holden is a chunky boy like his brother. He loves nap time, outside time, and is content in between. He enjoys chasing his siblings around outside, wrestling, and snuggling up during naptime.

Sept 22: Holden is comfortable at the bottom of the dog pile. He often passes out mid-snack and gives sweet kisses when snuggled. We’ve caught him monching on his siblings feet and faces as he learns to play and navigate.

Sept 26: Holden continues to be an easy going playful pup. He’s excited to be in the playpen and watch the big dogs – he’s always ready to play in between naps.

Wilder (CLAIMED)

Physical Description: Female, Red & White with thin full white collar, small white spot on forehead, white socks and tip of tail – birth weight .27lbs

Oct 14: Wilder is independent and content while she explores outside – she enjoys finding little hiding holes and rummaging around in the grass. She sleeps on her back most of the time.

Sept 22: Wilder is always cozy. She seems unphased when picked up and often melts in our hands as we scoop her up for some pets. She absolutely loves belly rubs and enjoys smothering and being smothered by her mom and siblings – she’s a snuggler.

Sept 26: Wilder loves to watch the world around her. She’s chill with a little spunk. She’s usually the first to pass out after snack-time.
