I am a watercolor artist although i do a lot of other stuff also such as graphic work for my church. My husband and i have been married for 28 years and have 2 grown boys. So it was time to get a new baby to keep me company so we got a puppy=)
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Quin was born on Nov 5 2009. She is a red and white, sable fluff with a white blaze on her head. I waited a year for a puppy. Her name is for one of my fav watercolor colors Quinacridone gold. She is becoming a wonderful companion.
Quin up dates
I can't believe Quin is two. She has been wonderful for me, I started walking when I got her and am now up to 3 miles a day and have lost 35lbs :)
Quin, is a fluffy! Oh, how adorable! I got my pup from eastern Texas from a breeder named Nancy Kretschmer. South of Tuscon aye, well I live right near Sierra Vista about 45 minutes south of Tuscon. I have actually been to Coronado for an emergency with my Aussie. I just moved here this year so I don't know many people, but I am looking for kindred dog lovers! My only friend so far has Cavaliers and we are looking to get into the dog community. It is so nice to meet fellow corgi lovers. In my opinion, there is no other dog like the Corgi. =)

On the basis of this summer's experience, I am endorsing the Chillybuddy (TM) dog cooling vest. I got ours from Clean Run. It's important to keep it wet for evaporative cooling -- keep it in a plastic bag, add the dog's leftover drinking water.
The medium size works. I might order a custom size -- medium long. Al wore his quite a bit in challenging terrain over Labor Day, including steep, thick bushwhacking.
I actually think it helped. Since Quin's a light fawn color, the effect might not be as great. Al & Gwynnie are black-backed tris; their backs get HOT in the sun!
hi there , yes i use to watercolor , i took 5yrs of lessons and then my daughter had a baby 8 yrs ago and needed me to help her with child care , so i put my painting on hold... needless to say i have not had much time to paint with my two corgis ..so maybe one day ill get back into it.. i still have all my supplies..
Aww thank you. Your darling puppy photos of Quin were definitely an inspiration to go fluffy. She was impossibly adorable as a puppy and grew up to become a mind blowingly beautiful corgi! Her coat is sooooo pretty.
Kari, I didn't have any problem clipping Sandy down to the skin as she did stay
in the shade most of the time and it grew terribly quickly. Due to her inability to
control her temp., I had to do that for her along. She loved to lay outside all night
to watch for Rodents. When she was young, she worked quite hard at it but I don't
think she ever caught anything. If Randy is a fluff, which it looks like he is, it will
not be necessary to clip him and we have a doggie door so he can be in when ever he wants. He is so young that I don't think he has realized there are such things as rodents. It isn't always humid here but often it and that is a big factor.
