So proud of my fluffy boy, Jon Farleigh! After nine months of training and hard work, he tested yesterday for AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and was certified. Now we have the foundation to move on to therapy certification. YAY!
BTW - His merle brother, Dewi, is still working on his manners and if all goes as planned, will take the CGC test in May.
After a few minutes of searching for him the other day, we discovered Dewi stuck on the stairs.
Not a big deal really, except that he had been stuck for about 10 minutes like this:

Oh, the humiliation.…Continue
1/8 - UPDATE: The licking has begun. :( Cone of shame is not going to cut it; headed to Petsmart to find a donut (because Petco doesn't have any).

Oh, to be a well-fed Corgi with his best bud in a blanket of fluffy new snow.…
Spent a good two hours this morning trying to get a nice, respectable holiday photo of Jon and Dewi in front of the fireplace. [silence] With my point and shoot camera. [silence] Took about 70 photos. Not one decent photo in the bunch. Nope. In fact, it was like a two-hour obedience lesson gone horribly awry. (sit, stay, down, stay, sit, down, STAY!) I quit after this picture. …Continue
Just wanted to share these photos from last Saturday's parade in Middleburg, VA. Dewi's breeder took Dewi's mother (blue merle) and sister (black) (pictured below). (I'm hoping to make it in 2011!) There were 60+ corgis (Corgi Corps) all together!
Click below to see the photo gallery (go to pages 3-4, starts with photo #25).…Continue
What my husband is getting for Christmas from Jon and Dewi...
The following scenes were reinacted:

Dewi to Me:…Continue
