About Me:
I've been working in vet med since 1997. First as a veterinary technician which was a career I absolutely loved. Unfortunately for me I was diagnosed with Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis which lead to me becoming legally disabled. Unable to continue the physical work as a technician I became the Practice Manager of the vet clinic.

I am married to a wonderful man named John and our "kids" include an Orange Tabby named Harrison, a three-legged Black/Tan Tabby named Jet, a PWC named Ashton, a PWC named Alphonse and the newest addition a PWC named Pinoko.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
No
About My Corgi(s):
PitaPata Dog tickers
Born November 17, 2008, Ashton is my red and white male Pembroke.

Ashton loves ice cubes, playing fetch, agility, herding, obedience, coursing and swimming. He loves meeting new people and dogs, everyone is a friend.



Currently Ashton has received his RN (Rally Novice), RA (Rally Advanced), RE (Rally Excellent), NA (Novice Agility), OA (Open Agility), NAJ (Novice Agility Jumpers), BN (Beginning Novice Obedience), CD (Novice Obedience), CA (Coursing Ability), PT (Pre-Trial Herding), CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and PHC (Pembroke Herding Instinct Certified) Titles and Certificates. Ashton is involved in lessons in Rally, Agility, Herding, Coursing and Obedience and is the example dog in our kennel club's companion obedience class. He is still Mr. Popularity at the vet clinic and finds no shortage of love from my co-workers and clients.

He loves a good road trip and has traveled throughout Washington, Idaho, Oregon, California and ventured north of the border to British Columbia. He lives such a jet set lifestyle.

Ashton is a big brother again! His new little sister came from the same breeder and was born October 20, 2012, Her name is Pinoko. She is so cute! She is a Red-headed Tri and she'll join her big brothers in performance events when she gets a bit bigger. Our little family is growing by leaps and bounds!

Happy Agility Corgi!

A couple of weekends ago Ashton and John competed in the EMLKC agility trial which was their first agility trial in over a year. Had to take last year off when John started a new job and they had him working 12 hr shifts at nights on weekends. That kind of cut into corgi competition time. They qualified twice in Open Jumpers and once in Open Standard which earned them a new title! They moved up to…

Hi Gail! So I was looking into getting Zoey(our littlest corgi) into some training for better obedience. She is fast and has a ton of energy so I decided to meet with someone from the Wenatchee Kennel Club to see what activities we could get her into. Turns out Jeff (the guy we met) knows you and your husband from competitions and a few moses lake agility practices. He sent me a bunch of awesome videos of ashton. I must say im very impressed and after yesterdays session, both max and zoey show a lot of potential. We are definitely looking forward to training them up and maybe we will see you in some competitions down the road! Hope all is well!

Hi Gail--I watched Ashton's agility video and he looks wonderful! What a great accomplishment for his first trial.  Do you do herding too with Ashton? Beezie just got her PT title last weekend. She loves herding more than agility  :-) I will look forward to seeing more of Ashton in agility!
