"My husband lived in the UK for 35 years and never remembers seeing any corgis except the royal ones. Our boys were named after Welsh towns. The town of Chepstow has a lovely castle, and Tenby is a beautiful seaside village."
"Thank you for the welcome. We are already enjoying a great response on a question on the debate pages :-)I thought they were more common in the UK; after all, it is the country where the breed has gone royal ;-) We live in the second biggest city in…"
"One of our corgis (Chepstow) is a perfect angel at the vet..then there is the other one (Tenby). Our vet comes into the room says hi and then sits on the floor. He gives Tenby a treat and then talks to him and exams him, even shots were given…"
"Both of our boys basically stopped eating around 9 months. Getting any food down them was a chore. Then around a year they remembered they were corgi's and started eating everything they could find. They are 10 months apart in age so…"
"This is from our last trip. Watson trying to befriend Izzy. She is warming up to him a little. Next trip is this weekend and for a change here in Michigan we should have nice weather! Happy Memorial Day everyone!"
"Hi RV Gang :)!We spent a week up in the Sierras near Graeagle.Land of a lot of small gorgeous lakes.Corgis swam,too cold for Us humans,hiked and slept hard every night :).

"I am with you Laurie! No longer interested in roughing it! We took our motor home to Holland, Michigan for the Tulip Festival. It has been very slow to warm up here this year so the tulips hadn't bloomed yet. It was cold and windy but at least…"
"We have been home from Florida for about 5 weeks and still feeling like we are playing catch up. Took my 2 sisters to VA last week so they could start on their cross country bicycle ride to Oregon. They will ride 4230 miles in 90-100 days, carrying…"
"One of our 'sweet darling' boys ate a couch, loveseat and coffee table plus anything else he could get his teeth on before he was one. We put 2 or 3 nylabones in every room and like Bev suggested kept him close. He learned…"
"We have 2 corgis, Chepstow gets his nails trimmed every 2 weeks. They grow so fast, if only my nails were like that. Our other boy Tenby needs a trim every 4-5 weeks. They are rarely on concrete and live on grass and hardwood floors.…"
We live in beautiful Seven Lakes which is a few miles west of Pinehurst, NC. (yes, there are 7 lakes) Roger is retired Air Force. He lived in England and Wales for 35 years. Laurie is a retired health care administrator. We have 3 children and 2 grandkids. Of course now that the children are all gone our "boys" are our babies. We love our Corgi's
and are the perfect example of......you just can't have one potato chip or corgi!"
We spend the winter in Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
We have 2 Corgi's, Chepstow (RW) and Tenby (RHT). Both of the boys love to ride in the golf cart and swim in the lake and ocean. Chasing the seagulls at the beach is almost as fun as eating. Chepstow is the "perfect" child and gets very frustrated with his brothers antics. Tenby is a free spirted wild child, that loves life.
Thank you for the welcome. We are already enjoying a great response on a question on the debate pages :-) I thought they were more common in the UK; after all, it is the country where the breed has gone royal ;-) We live in the second biggest city in DK with lots of dogs in the parks, but we have only seen 1 corgi (cardigan) besides our own so far.
Hi Laurie.. you've probably seen this toy,but I'll post just in case. I bought one of these for my kids this past Xmas.. it's almost like a custom stuffed animal for our Tenby's! Even has a bit of black mixed in the red head.
Our "bratty sweetheart" is almost 3. We got him from a breeder in Eden NC. (We live in Fairfax VA). He looks amazingly like your Tenby! His head was almost all black when we got him at 11 weeks old....reddened over time. He's very smart...always knows when it's time to go to the bus stop or when the dishwasher is being loaded. He' s lovable (wants to cuddle on the couch when it's Netflix movie time) but also very stubborn and definately has some bad habits. He's very social with other dogs (has lots of neighborhood buddies and likes to get together with them) but I'm not sure he's mastered the social graces when he meets new dogs... barks at them loudly to try to say hello...they don't always want to say hello back! Some of his bad habits...sigh... making a mess of his water and throwing his food bowl when he's hungry, stealing food off the edge of the table from unsuspecting kids, stealing things to initiate a fun chase, lightly nipping at our thighs when he really wants something (yeah, this is a bad one we have to work on!). He's definately better behaved when he gets the attention/stimulation he needs. I'm trying to take him with me more when I go out. He's definately all Corgi... highly highly motivated by food, won't come when he's called unless there's something in it for him, pushes limits! At the same time, he wants to be part of everything social in the household...my husband will wrestle with my 10yo son and Tenby comes running to get in on the action. When kids play basketball, he's the ref.
He's also very big! I have him on a diet (he's 48 lbs), aiming to get to low 40s...he's just big. (Luckily he's very fond of carrots).
He has definately mellowed with age some and I'm hoping for more mellowing, but I know some of his bad habits, we just need to work on ourselves. He has just trouble controlling his "enthusiam" for life. :) Has your Tenby mellowed with age? I love the name Chepstow!
