I knew I wanted a corgi since I was a little girl. How can you resist those big ears and those short little legs? After debating between a Pembroke and a Cardigan for quite some time, I decided the Cardigan was for me and I fell in love with blue merles. Five and a half years later, after much searching, I got my very own little blue boy.
As for me, I'm a quiet, calm, reserved individual (quite the opposite of Finn) but I'm always up for a good adventure. I love reading more than most things and thrive on imagination and creativity. I enjoy writing, watching movies, arts and crafts, music (and this is where I plug my brother's band Rook, check them out on facebook at Rook Rock in Phoenix, AZ) and a number of other things. I've been an avid knife collector since I was a little girl and got my first girl scout knife and would like to learn bladesmithing one day. Aside from that, my life is in the process of undergoing many changes and my current motto is "this too shall pass" but I'm optimistic about the future. Perhaps there will even be another Cardi pup in it :)
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Finnigan is a blue merle Cardigan Welsh Corgi. He was born September 15, 2008. From the moment the litter was born, he was my favorite. He had everything I wanted in a blue merle. As I watched him develop more, I knew he was the one for us. Tragically, the rest of the litter was lost due to a virus leaving Finn the only survivor. The couple ahead of us decided to wait for the next litter which meant Finnigan would be ours. It must have been fate and I couldn't be more happy to have him.
Yea, that kind of bugged me to but from the outside they seemed very respectable and trustable. Her and her husband also showed horses, and you could find many records of champion show dogs from them as well, they also only worked with Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Like I said, they also had many good reviews and references and I had not seen one bad thing about them. The other people that got the puppies from the same little seem to also be satisfied with the process and the puppy so I don't know. I just wouldn't suggest them to anyone from the information I found. I really would of gone with anyone within 500 miles but after 4 months of searching I couldn't find anyone.
I work Tuesday-Saturday from 11pm to 7am. I normally sleep from 10am-6pm so any time between that is good. Only thing I can think we would have to worry about is the temperature outside.
I feel it was a grave mistake on my part and I would do it all differently over if I had the chance. My main goal when getting her is that I wanted a good dog coming from a good environment. I wanted someone passionate about the breed and was breeding them for the right reasons.
She also has social problems. When I got her she was extremely fearful. I understand coming from a farm to a city is a lot for a young dog. But I have had her for well over a month and I am still working on it. She barks at anything that movies, freaks out or start screaming bloody murder like someone steped on her tail if it gets too close.
None the less I still love her very much,
We should get together sometime at one of the doggy parks, I would love to see another Cardigan. She is the first for me, I had a friend growing up who had a Pembroke that I adored. After doing my research I liked the cardigan much better for attitude, size and of coarse cuteness.
I decided on them because I couldn't find anyone near here that was having puppies in the next year or would even talk to me. I tried Sunspark here in Phoenix, one in flagstaff and one in New Mexico. Pynewoode is in Minnesota so she came from quite a ways. She had puppies right when I was looking to add a doggy to my life. I wouldn't recommend them.
She was super responsive had lots of questions, and so did I, and she responded to all of them. She also had good references and reviews. As soon as she got my first deposit(1/2 of the price of the dog, and not refundable) she wouldn't give me the time of day. Weeks would go buy before she would respond. I thought for a long while she had ran away with my money leaving me heartbroken. She also lied about how being a small time breeder/shower. She deals with breeding well over 100 puppies a year. After the long period of time that went by I did a background check on her and found some very startling things. In the early 90's she got charged for not having a permit for breeding a large amount of puppies, from the paperwork she sold well over 120 puppies to pet stores over the coarse of the year.
