Mauser Marksman aka Little Marker Boy from my Aug 9, 2010 litter by Sian and Marker crossed the bridge Dec. 28, 2010 from Renal complications. This picture was taken during a visit with Mauser and his owner, Bree Babin, the beginning of December. The visit almost got canceled because of snow in my area and I am so thankful Bree was willing to still make the drive, for this is the last time I saw my Little Marker Boy. He has touched the hearts of many on FB and brought many Corgi Lovers together. He will be sadly missed but Never Forgotten!


Though there was a loss yesterday morning and it set a grey cloud over our heads for many, by the end of the day brought hope. Meagan delivered 6 beautiful, healthy, vibrant puppies and we do believe Mauser was there to help. 2 male puppies of sable coloring with white on their necks and a stripe down their faces like Mauser. Meagan and Crushers litter was the litter Bree originally wanted a pup from but fell in love with Mauser from all of my posts on FB how I was helping him fight for his life for the first few weeks. Now he leaves us and in return 6 healthy DM Clear puppies later that day.

Keep Bree in your prayers so her heart heals and these pups have a long, healthy, happy life.

The puppies are doing great!!! Their eyes are open and they are starting to get up and sit up. On FB I've posted pictures of them. Usually 3 week pictures I will post on my website. Next week will be so much fun with them.

Sorry about Mauser, great to see the arrival of new puppies.  How are they doing now?

Just wanted to let you all know that the autopsy report came in last Friday on Mauser and it states his death was not from development or congenital but more a toxin and/or trauma. No there was not abuse..trauma meaning injury to organs because of a toxin.

I am so sorry about Mauser... I am glad you were able to have a final visit from him.


It is also nice that you have such a beautiful litter now to keep you busy!  They are adorable!

I'm so sorry to hear about Mauser, how sad :(  Mauser is now an angel boy watching over your new litter.


You did a great job with Mauser, he couldn't have asked for a better, caring breeder.    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as well as Mausers family. 


Congratulations on your newest litter!!!

So sad to lose one so young! He was a beauty and I hope Bree can enjoy the time she had and her next pup is as healthy as can be. You gave him a short but much loved life Wendy!

Lossing a pup is so hard, but how wonderful you had 6 new healthly ones delivered to you the same day.  We will keep you in our prayers and hope for a long, happy, healthly and full life for the pups!

John...yes, I am breeding DM Clear Pems and plan on keeping a couple of these pups for myself. Many breeders have tested and are not utilizing the test or revealing the results publicly and I can understand that in some ways when there are very few clears out there to breed or that are of quality. It will be a slow process to gain more clears of ideal standard and that fact that all at risk dogs never come down with symptoms. It would be a tragedy to lose some of those lines on the assumption it could be. Then there is the bottle necking of certain lines and possibilities of far worse issues destroying our breed. I don't know why I am saying all of this specially since you are far more aware of all this then I am John. And NO, you can't have all the white paws...only 4 of them. HA


Priscilla and Carly~Beth is absolutely correct in her observation. Mauser was only 4 oz at birth and though he was latching on and showing all signs of a healthy pup he wasn't strong enough to get anything out of the nipple and fight the much bigger siblings and became weak. I had to tube feed him to get him to gain weight since he was only maintaining his birth weight and that is not good enough. Tails and dewclaws need to be done no later then 4 days post whelping because of the development of nerves and blood supply and rather then risk his delicate life for an ideal standard I chose his life. I only tube fed him for 2 days and then monitored and warded off siblings while he nursed every hr to 2 hrs for the next 3 weeks. I wasn't feeling comfortable leaving him be til he was about 4 weeks old and seeing consistent weight gain on his own and strong enough to withstand his goliath siblings. He was a fighter for life. Would I do this all over again today...ABSOLUTELY!!!
