Thanks for sending me the note you got about Tommie. I can't wait to show it to my husband. Will did NOT get the love of water from his daddy. We took him to a pond with our friend and her water loving dogs. Will's best friend, Chipper, jumped in the water and Will followed him. When he realized where he was, he promptly turned around swam to shore and never went in again!
I had a dream that your little Sparkle was living with us. My dogs loved playing with her. I was worried that I didn't have her potty trained yet and that I had not signed her up for an obedience class. Also, I was trying to puppy proof the house.
Dreams are so weird. I guess I just had her on my mind.
We got Will when his owner died of cancer. He was almost 2 years old. He was a show dog, so we took him to a Pem Show in the Chcago area 3 weeks after we got him. We were there just to see what the shows were like, not to compete. We already had him neutered by the time the show happened. Anyway, this older man walked by and said "He's got The Phantom in him." I was lost. The man owned The Phantom (AKA Tommie, already deceased) and he explained that he could see "his Tommie" in Will's face. I knew only his Dame side of the family. I told this man that I had no idea who Will's father was. Then I bumped into Will's old handler who told me that the guy was right. I could not figure out who he knew that Will had The Phantom in him until I looked up pictures of The Phantom on the internet. Will does look like his daddy.
Later, I saw a picture on MyCorgi of another dog, Caden. He looked so much like Will that I wrote the family and found out that these boys are littermates. We met that family at the Illinois Corgi Picnic last September. The brothers were reunited. My 2 Corgis seemed to have a special bond with Caden. It was amazing!
If you want to see Caden's pictures look up members "Mike and Lisa" from Pearl City, Illinois. When I first found Caden's pictures I copied one and showed it to my husband. I asked him what he thought of the photo and he thought it was a good picture of Will. He was very surprised to learn it was not our boy.
I have noticed that Gromit likes the Windows computer...I can't get Dino off the computer either but he prefers DOS 5.0. I can't get over how happy Gromit is in all the pictures. I can tell that you take really good care of each other.
i wanted to say thank you for leaving such a cute comment on my photo :) for his birthday this year i wanted to get him something better than just toys or food. blue and orange look so good on him and when i seen the collar i knew it was for him. his birthday isnt for another week but hey a an early gift never hurt haha :)
