"Oooh, happy to see so many Central IL corgis! We're not too fond of play dates but Sully and I are up for a central IL corgis obedience practice/rally practice or tracking session! We'll even provide the cones/signs/flags!"
Sully was adopted in 2005 through the Lakeshore Pembroke Welsh Corgi rescue! He is gentle and laid-back but learning to be bossy at home with Mommy and Daddy. In the past couple of years we have worked on his shyness, fear, dog-aggression and other issues and he has really gained confidence but he is still not a typical corgi. We compete in Obedience (AKC) And Rally (AKC and APDT) Sully (Sullivan's Travelin Pants RN RL2 CGC) and I love to take long walks in our neighborhood, watch tv and play squeaky toy fetch in the back yard. Sully's favorite trick is spinning in circles (both clockwise and counterclockwise) and sometimes I use that as his reward for doing more boring exercises in traditional obedience. Most recently, we attended a Freestyle Workshop in Chicago! He loves popcorn, dried cranberry cookies, Natural Balance rolls, his rubber chicken and naps in his crate.
We totally have to hook up sometime! We're in Atlanta...but my husband and I work for Gameday Spirit in Champaign!!!! I have a friend in Rantoul who has a corgi too. We need to start some get togethers in this area. Are there any dog parks in Champaign/Urbana? Can't wait to meet you and your furr baby!
Thanks for your response to my comment on Julo's Corgi Tails blog. I've learned that corgi breeders are protective of their breed, and absolutely love that fact. When Julo let me know that she was added to the list without a number, it was a relief that I wasn't the only one, nothing more. Every time I rationalize as to why there is no number on the waiting list and I don't know the number of puppies, I realize that it's probably because this is a good responsible breeder who wants to match the puppy to the people. Thank you so much for putting it into words, it's always nice when people confirm what you are speculating. :)
And Sully is a doll! Love the tie you made him!
(I hope it's ok that I responded to your comment here, it seemed the most appropriate!)
