I am a third year law student. My husband and I have a precious corgi named Bailey. She was born 5/31/09. Bailey brings so much energy and fun into our lives. What did we do before we had her? We also added a little corgi mix named Cali to the family. Cali was born 7/30/10
Bailey is a tricolored Pembroke. She is full of energy and always chasing something (our other dogs, flys, air...) Bailey is quite vocal and loves to run around the yard,
Bailey has been herding sheep since November 2009. She absolutely loves it, and she is finally learning to slow down and listen to what we want from her.
We recently started agility with Bailey as well, and she as well as us is loving it so much.
And we have added Flyball to Bailey's activities...I feel like a soccer mom driving Bailey around to all her various practices. But I wouldn't want it any other way.
Our new little one, Cali, joined us Halloween 2010. She is a corgi mix. We are not quite sure what she is mixed with. I guess we will have to wait and see what she looks like when she grows up...So, little update on this. In my opinion, Cali is a Corgi Australian Shepherd mix. We did have her DNA tested, and the results were actually quite funny: Dalmation/German Shpeherd...Yeah, I don't see it at all :-)
Cali is the complete opposite of Bailey. She is mellow, affectionate and loves to eat.
We are going to instinct test Cali for herding soon. She loves to herd her big sis around the house :-)
yup, we definitely want to try it out! several people have said he seems like he'd be a natural at it b/c he herds dogs at the park, my 5 young nieces and if there is a group of us walking with him lol
Maybe we will try it out as a barkday-birthday event :) if you could pass on the info to contact the herding locations, that would be very helpful!
Ollie is 10 months now, and will be 1.5 when I start law school & his new little sister Prie will only be 6 months old... I am so nervous about it! --both law school and the pups! I think having the 2 will be better so that Ollie won't be lonely all day and I'm hoping that I'm not just setting myself up for double trouble!
Hi Miri, Wanted to let you know that I joined the LBC (Long Beach Corgi group; not the Crips, LOL). It appealed to me because I love Dr. Dre and all that LBC gangsta stuff. My "baby" who's 23 and in the Peace Corps in W. Africa put an Eminem poster on top of a lithograph in my bedroom yrs ago, and it's still there. I actually think Eminem is brilliant and hilarious. I also think that Bailey is AMAZING. I feel so badly for Lucy because we are not challenging her. Anyhow, just wanted to post an update to my illustrious and only member of The OC Corgis to check out the Long Beach Corgi group--esp. bec. I think you go to herding classes in LB and might meet some great Corgi people.
Thanks for the info on the harness...it was the pink one I saw. I didn't see the wacky walker, I will take another look. I'm going to Google those items. Riley pulls too, we are hoping he will grow out of the pulling. Riley is still a puppy at 9 months and is into and trying to eat everything. Love these tris :)
