About My Corgi(s):
Sidney is our first purebred corgi and we are thrilled to have him. He was born 7/11/07. We planned to start him in agility training, but there was a long waiting list. So while waiting for an opening, we took classes for therapy dog training. As it turns out, he's a pretty good therapy dog, so we stuck with that and never got around to agility. Now he is training as a Rally dog. We love it! He's one smart little character! Oh, and he's undocked, so his beautiful tail attracts a lot of attention - good attention.

On August 30th, Sidney suddenly came up lame in his hind left leg. The next day we got xrays for him and found out he has severe hip dysplasia. On Sept 7th he had a Femoral Head Ostectomy to relieve the pain. His right hip is not in great shape either but we're hoping that with glucosamine supplements and exercise we can keep it healthy. *Update* You would never know Sid has surgery now. He moves beautifully. The water therapy and supplements have worked wonders.

Bruce is our corgi/elkhound (?) mix. We rescued him from the brink of euthanasia when he was approximately 10-11 years old (he had a day or two left to go). He's about 16 now and his only sign of his advanced age are bad teeth and slow mornings. I adore Brucie and he worships me. He's my funny short angel with a puffball tail (thanks to the elkhound side). He's about 18 now and going strong.

Chester is our "tall dog". He's a black dane/lab mix that we got from a "free to good home" ad in the local newspaper. He's also old, about 15 years old. We know his age because we've had him 14 years, and he was an adult when we brought him home! He's a very serious dog and not very affectionate compared to the corgis, but he has been a very good dog, just aloof. We can't take Chester as many places as the shorties because he does not travel well. He's almost 17 now and has definitely slowed down. *UPDATE* Chester had a sudden decline and was sent to the bridge on April 15th 2013 at the age of 17.

In February 2013 we added Connie to our family. She's a little tri corgi who was picked up as a stray and put up for adoption at our local Humane Society. She's a real sweet girl and loves to play ball. She's learning a lot from Sidney about life here. We can't believe that her family never came to claim her.She's got good manners and she gets along well with the other dogs and the cats, and everyone she meets is her best friend.

And the pack grows! In November we took in a black-headed tri who we named Copper. He and Connie were both born in 2009 and they are great buddies and a ball-chasing tag team. Copper is sweet and cuddly and eager to please.

Team Low RIder rides again!

Posted on March 4, 2014 at 3:30am 4 Comments

Long time members here know about Team Low Rider! This is our fifth year competing in Paws in the Park for the title of top fundraising team. Paws in the Park is an annual event to raise funds for the Escondido Humane Society. For years, the ladies who tend to the cats at the shelter had year after year run away with first place with no real competition. In 2009 I thought "why should the cat people have all the fun?" so I formed Team Low Rider. Finally some real competition! We actually…

Hi Gary and Shirley! I did contact the moderator of that facebook page. Thy gave me a referral to a breeder in Ft Lauderdale. I contacted the breeder and they replied, however, I got a message from them a month later that they are relocating to Indianapolis and no longer going to breed.

I found a breeder in Kansas City Missouri who said she would agree not to dock the tail, so long as I pay for the total cost of he dog upfront at the time of birth rather than merely placing a deposit. Since I live in California, it would be nice to find a breeder willing to work with me on this that is closer. I'm still wavering on whether or not the tail is important to me (I want it undocked just because I love a wagging tail, not for humane reasons). If I choose a breeder who agrees to not dock the tail of one dog in its litter- I will not Get to choose the dog based on temperament. The most ideal situation would be to find a breeder who doesn't dock, but that's difficult.

I'm still reaching out to breeders who are more local (such as Bay Area) but I am finding better luck in getting responses when I do not lea with questions about not docking the tail of a pup or me. I'm not a PETA looney, I swear! I just have a heart that melts for a happy wagging tail!

Hi Geri & Sidney, there are quite a few Corgies down here, its rare to encounter another in the city and thats fine because Shepard looks exotic, being a fluffy corgi and all :D

Down here the most common dogs are schnauzers, labradors, maltese, poodle & chihuahua (of course) and pitbulls
