About Me:
Have known that I wanted a blue merle cardigan for going on 15 years, but wanted to make sure I had a secure home before I got one. Have wanted to show cardi's in the ring since I first saw Kingsbury's Harry P take the title some years ago. Alas, it was not to be, as the show pup I was going to purchase did not meet breed standards. I decided to own a non show corgi first, and get some practice with AKC competition before getting my show puppy. My ultimate doggy wish is to find a male show pup descendant of Ch Kingsbury's I'm Harry P to take to Westminster (which probably won't happen until after I win the Powerball lottery)... UPDATE = I have my Harry P great-grandson, now to make it all the way to Westminster!!
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Blue Merle Altered Male - Tartanwyn Frost From Angels Breath "Frosty" born 12/15/2008. According to our breeder, Frosty was an only pup litter. When x-rayed before birth, he stretched from mommy's neck to tail. A c-section had been planned for 2 days after his birth. Unfortunately for mommy, she went into labor with Frosty during a major snow/ice storm, so they were unable to get her to a vet. Our breeder spent a terrible 20 minutes assisting his delivery and they were all relieved when he came out healthy. The breeder said that an angel must have been breathing for him during the long difficult delivery, and that's where he got his name. At birth, Frosty was the size of a 3 week old puppy. And being the only pup, he got all the milk and exploded in size. He is definitely the biggest corgi I have ever seen. Not fat big, just big big. He has the hugest feet ever!! We brought home Frosty on 02/06/2010. He is awesome! Frosty was set to be a show dog, but grew way too fast and ended up at a huge 40 pounds, so we got him as a pet puppy. It was a challege bringing home a 1 yr old instead of a puppy, but he has turned out to be the most awesome dog EVER!!

Brindle Intact Male - Kingsbury's Dragon In Flight "Drake" born 3/29/2013. My little show prospect that we brought home on July 20th. So far he is a sharkface monster lol, but hopefully he will shape up into a beautiful conformation boy!

Had a great time at the Iowa Corgi Frap Party at Foggy Bottom on Saturday.  Drake and Frosty very much enjoyed having some friends to play with.  I have posted pictures on Facebook if anyone is interested in seeing them :)

Drake is home!

Brought home our new little show boy today!  Such a cutie!…


FINALLY - Announcing Drake, the newest addition!!

Posted on June 25, 2013 at 4:27pm 2 Comments

After years and years and YEARS of waiting, I am proud to be picking up my first show puppy in less than a month!!  Am Can CH Kingsbury Tail Ridge Road (Jake) x Am Aus CH Cambrian My Way (Casey) born March 29, 2013.

I am already planning to take him to a specialty 4-6 mo puppy class on Labor Day weekend, and then our first show in Rockford-Freeport the day he turns 6 months on Sept 29.

So excited I can't hardly stand…

Congratulations on the arrival of Drake, he is a future champion for sure! Bogart would love to play with him, too bad we are not in the same state. Keep posting pictures! How does Frosty like him??

Hi Chris,

I just noticed you are from Ottumwa IA. 4-5 years ago I picked up my 4 Corgi rescues from the Humane Society there. The USDA made the woman turn in 3 sets of 10 pembrokes. Do you ever hear of any puppy mills close to Ottumwa? I figure if she had to turn in 30 I can't imagine how many she actually had. I did see the papers on this at the time...just wondering.

Happy Birthday! Have a great day:)

Guess you and I are polar opposites. I pay no attention to detail. I stick my key in any black car. I actually reported some scratches and dents on my trunk. My husband looks at me like Ricky Ricardo looked at Lucy and says, "that's a rental car!' This Xmas I walked into what I thought was my best friend's house, even tho' my husband said I was wrong. I said, "helllooo, I think I'd know my best friend's house." Well, it was the same model as her house. I walked up the steps, the front door wasn't locked so I walked in. The house had the same floor plan. I wave hello to everyone in the living room, do the same as I pass the dining room. Once I'm in the kitchen the owner of the house looks at me and says, "Do I know you?" I look around and realized I didn't know anyone... I gulped and said, "No, I thought it was my friends house. He was nice enough to ask if I wanted something to eat!!!

Hey Chris, Sounds like Tim posted the Corgis that will be on the 365-day calendar. If so, do you know where the list is posted? Hope to see Frosty!

At 2:33am on January 21, 2012, Lucy & Ricky (Wendy/Jack ) said…

I'm glad we're friends. You seem as detail oriented as me, haha.

I think it's hilarious that you posted the criteria for the 365-day calendar and were as confused as me re. sam wanting photos more than 5 MG or less.

We should be BFF.

At 2:07am on January 21, 2012, Lucy & Ricky (Wendy/Jack ) said…

LOL. Just curious, Chris, if you didn't know if Sam meant  > 5 MB  or  < 5 MB, how did you make sure that your photo was the right size?

At 1:52am on January 20, 2012, Lucy &amp; Ricky (Wendy/Jack ) said…

Thanks for being mine!

Delighted to be friends! Thanks for working so hard helping Sam get the 365-day calendar completed. I'm still confused (my normal state). Did Sam want photos bigger or smaller than 5 MB for the 365-day calendar?

HI Chris,


I just noticed you are from Ottumwa IA. It will be 4 years this April that I rescued 4 Corgis from the Humane society there. The woman had to give up 30 Corgis(have NO clue how many she must have had) Did you ever hear of this there? I picked them up at the Ottumwa Humane Society as she had 3 groups of 10 that she turned in. There were so many to pick from that day it was a hard choice especially after telling my hubby I'd get 1-2...ooops!

Al & Gwynnie may have the best mountains in the world, but y'know, a big farmyard with cornfields may be a lot better from a dog's-eye view.  Most of the time, ours are stuck inside a small fenced yard, or walking around on a leash, or asleep on the couch.

Just read your profile information, hillarious. You and Frosty must have lots of fun together! :)
