I'm Jeri and I live in Kentucky with Dani, my Pembroke Welsh Corgi, my boyfreind and his corgi-pom; Jaina. I adopted Dani when she was re-homed to me the age of 1 and a half. She still has a lot of puppy in her, and we still have a lot of training to do. But that's okay, because Dani is willing and ready to learn.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
I have a female Pembroke Welsh named Dani, short for Daenerys Targurrryen, Queen of Westeruff.
Jeri, My problem was that Randy was an alpha and I have had a time convincing him that he isn't in charge. I thought we mostly had that settled but the other day when the yard guy was here, I went out front to talk to him and told him I would be back with his money. This guy was the second this year and I hadn't introduced him to dogs, so when he mows the back yard, the dogs are locked in the house and they don't like having someone back there. Randy was determined that I wasn't going out front with that potentially dangerous man and he tried to stop me and in the end, he nipped my ankle. But I didn't correct him for it because he was trying to take care of me!!! Bless his little heart.
No, I am a scientist and just happy to get my first job out of grad school in CA. I loved it but the place I worked closed and I couldn't find another job. The best thing I could get was in TX but that reached the point where it wasn't good anymore so I came to work in Birmingham. Then it ended going sower after 10 years and I just ended up staying. Randy is the result of an accidental brother sister mating and I think that is part of his hyperness. He has a full sister that the breeder has't been able to show because she is wild as a buck but he also has a half sister who is a little older that the breeder is also holding till she grows up some more. Taking Randy to PetSmart classes helped but I am hoping he will get calmer. He is adorable and cute but has been wild and wooly but I love him dearly.
Hi Jeri, and thank you for your compliment about Sidney's tail. Here in the US, nobody really gets a say. The breeders have to dock by the time the pups are about 4 days old! We got lucky in that Sid's breeder had to go in for emergency dental work and could not get the docking done within the window of time. I love that he has his tail! I've heard some breeders will "hold" a pup and not dock if you pay up front. I'm pretty sure I'll do this when the time comes to add another corgi to the family.
I remember natural bridge. I went to school in 2 states, KY & MI, then off to CA, TX and AL for work. I had a lot of friends in TX and thought of moving back there but it is too darn hot. I like the AL climate and it was closer to KY and OH which I have relatives. The last 2 years it has been as hot as Hell here but maybe that won't continue. This summer hasn't been as bad as last but we have 2 potentially hot months to go so who knows. I still like it here. Last year I flew to Louisville and a friend picked me up and we went to Floyd co. for a hometown reunion. I didn't get to see as many people as I wanted to and want to go back when I can. In the past, I have had friends to feed my dogs when I am away but Randy is such a big rambunctious boy than almost no one can handle him. He and I have been to beginning training twice and he is 21 mo. old so is finally settling down. If I weren't spending a lot of time getting dental work done, I would take him to intermediate. He is extremely smart and learns anything quickly but tends to bounce all over the place a good deal of the time. He is getting better but he is my baby and I would do almost anything to provide good care. I fixed them a new tennis type ball in 2 socks and they are tugging and fighting over it. I have some sort of a corgi mix also. she is a little older but plays some with him.
