I have always loved dogs and horses and have owned several of both....I rode and competed in Dressage, jumping, and western events.... riding and training thoroughbreds, quarter horses, a Dutch Warmblood mare, and a male offspring of the great stallion Pregelstrand.....Don't dogs and horses just go together....I have shown Miniature Schnauzers, and was asked to home and care for a full blooded wolf that was found by animal control....it had been shot through the hip. Now I am the proud parent of two delightful corgis...They go with me everywhere and have made many friends on our travels.
My corgis are both sable and white...one female and one male...they are 8 years old.. and no they are not related in any way....Both are rescue dogs....Sammy came to me weighing around 56 pounds...he now weighs 30 pounds and is very handsome....Merry was shown in California, had a litter of puppies, and then her owner decided to switch breeds and asked if I would take her....She is beautiful....Needless to say I love them dearly.....not the shedding part....but who could not love the Corgi"s fun-loving disposition. Sammy is my caretaker...very in tune to my moods....Merry is a bit of a monkey....always on the go and always happy. Well, time for me to start picking up Corgi hair and give my home a new lease on life. We are all glad to be on board Corgi.com.
Oh Marion, I feel your pain! A wild child. I understand all to well. Ricky-Rafa was the worst puppy in America. It wasn't just Lucy wanting her quiet, steady life back. It was my husband, and I have to admit, many times it was me! He was just so craaazy. There are no words. But, I figured if we couldn't work this out, who could. We've been raising Corgis for 40 yrs. I couldn't imagine him having to go from home to home. He is now the love of our life and Lucy's too. She now eggs HIM on to play. He has kept her so young and fit. He sleeps at my side, sometimes with his head on my pillow next to mine. He's a Romeo. How old is your wild child? When did you get him? Hang in there. I know you will. Write me anytime you need to vent. xox wendy
We had a great Christmas here in the new house and the New Year was celebrated here at home as well. We never go out for New Years. It was a good holiday season! My 3 new pups from the Sian Marker litter are doing great. Really coming along. Meagan had her pups that are all DM clear Dec. 28th and they are up and about now. The fun has begun and its driving me nuts to see who will mature to my liking to keep for my program. You have a great time at that show. I think you should get back in the ring again but who am I to tell you that since I should get in the ring as well but it causes me so much anxiety just thinking about it makes me nauseous. Prefer someone else take the dog in for me. LOL Who do you go with?
haha. i think we'll stick with lucy and ricky for now!!! but i remember that conveyor belt and the 2 of them stuffing candies in their mouth, apron and down their shirts, i think. that and vita veta vegimen was another favorite. do you poop out at parties? are you unpoopular? LOL. she was such a comedic genius.
Thanks, Marion. Hope you and your family had a nice white Christmas. :) We have certainly enjoyed ours (but, I'm now ready for the snow to melt). Yes, coffee sounds like a good plan; let's try for something in January. Happy New Year!
Hi, Marion. The dogs and I went to visit the kennel on Rt. 5 this morning and I was so pleased with it. We've got a reservation for the Thanksgiving holiday. Thank you, thank you for sending me the information! The boys played in a fenced field while I toured the place and were completely worn out and soaked with dew by the time we left. :) They're gonna love staying there.
The owner said she might get back into herding lessons if she can get the right kind of sheep (who won't run into the fence from fear of the dogs), and has a friend who might loan her some. It would be nice to have something so close by.
Hope all is well.
Hi, Marion. We enjoyed meeting you all and walking, too; would love to meetup again sometime. Thank you so much for the link to the kennel! I peeked at the website and will be calling her soon; I need to board the two boys over Thanksgiving and knew of only one suitable place in Chester (off Ironbridge Rd.), but love the idea of the boys being in the country with opportunities to get out and run/play. I'll let you know if we decide to make a reservation.
Thanks also for asking around about herding. Jon Farleigh's breeder and also his sire's owner have both also told me not to give up on him with sheep. He has two littermates (girls) who have instinct. Everyone has advised that Jon is still too young and immature to take interest in sheep yet, so we'll definitely try again down the road.
Hope you hear back from someone about herding opportunities; seems the Richmond area Corgi group isn't too active on this site. :-(
