My boyfriend and I will be bringing home our male PWC puppy next Saturday, and we cannot contain our excitement! He'll be 11 weeks old, and we've decided to name him Casey after my boyfriend's beloved old family dog. I feel like we've been waiting forever for him since we've been seriously talking about getting one for over a year now. However, acquiring Casey came into fruition fairly quickly as we only found out last week that we were bringing him home.
We initially contacted Carrie Harris from Dalarno in late spring/early summer, however she didn't have any available at the time. She recommended that we visit a local Corgi event, and we were fortunate to meet Carol Lord Openhym from Evensong and her puppies there. She did have 1 or 2 available, but the timing wasn't right for us since my boyfriend and I began the process of buying our 1st home together. At first I figured we wouldn't be ready for a puppy for while as we were going to be busy settling into our new home, but we had previously lived with a couple and their dog, and we quickly learned that we were missing that companionship.
Carol and I had been in touch since the event, and she has been instrumental in helping us! We reached out to her at the end of September inquiring about her next litter, but she wasn't sure when that would be. She then referred us to Gigi Fitzgerald of Foxtale who happened to have a 7 week old litter of 6 males! After some emails, filling out an application and meeting Gigi at a local Corgi herding event, we're now bringing home a puppy! His first week home with us will be a busy one too. He's going to the vet, his first puppy class, meeting human and canine friends, and he'll also be traveling with us for a long weekend trip!
I've gained so much knowledge and insight about owning a Corgi from this site and was able to impress Gigi with what I've learned, so I'd really like to thank the MyCorgi community for playing a part in this as well!
One of these 3 adorable boys will be ours! They are 9 weeks old in these pictures, and we're already in love!
