Thanks for the email, and congrats on getting a new pup!!! How exciting to have a frisky corgi fellow again in your life!! Is that his picture on your profile? Is it a Cardi? I will be adopting a rescued cardi in about a month and I am really looking forward to him, but I have never had a cardi before, only pemmies. Have fun with that new pupster!
How wonderful! I was in contact with that breeder when we were looking for Willow. My brother's neighbor got a beautiful tri- from her a few years ago. Good luck, and congratulations! You'll have to keep me posted.
I think Jack is really cute. You'll get my husband's vote. My dgt's friend just named her baby Jack. Also Milo, Cody, Barnaby (barney), Jeremy, Vegas, Wilson (willy)...I think I'm losing it. LOL. Of course all these names will go out the window once you meet your baby. Take lots of photos. Where are you getting him from?
I am literally laughing out loud about Ben. Over the past few months my dgt, Lindsay, went out with a few different guys and all of them were named Ben––and they were all super annoying. She told me yesterday that she will never go out with anyone named Ben again. This is sort of weird, isn't it. But fun weird! I'm going to think some more. We didn't name Lucy right away.
My sister-in-law was in love with the name Molly. She wanted me to name my first daughter Molly. I didn't, but she, in turn, named her standard poodle Molly. Years later when she became a grandmother, she insisted that her daughter name her Molly. My husband & I thought that was pretty weird!
PS My husband likes Max. He also likes Harold (you can call him Harry) or Edward (Ed) because they're very English names. also Mason, and jack still loves dylan (for dylan thomas, tho my 3 girls named him after a character on beverly hills 90210. walter. ok, enough. these names are all courtesy of my husband Jack. I have nothing to do with any of them except Max and Dylan. LOL.
Crazy, I had a rescue dog that I named Winston (after my cigarette of choice–but having kids made me abandon that habit). I also had to return Winston because he was aggressive and bit everyone in my family, including me in my cheek. scary! Except for Dylan, all of our corgis had names ending in the ie or y sound: gorki (known as the gork), annie, rookie, maggie, emily, lucy. I do lack originality. I did like the name Rookie. I will continue to think of names, as long as i'm on the right track. you can also google baby names & get some ideas. You'll probably just have to wait and get your little guy and see what name fits.
I heard some good boy's names recently. But, of course I quickly forgot them. I'll pay attention. How much time do we have? My husband likes Barkley. If we get a boy we'll name him Desi. Easy...Lucy & Desi. I'll think of names & pay attention! I like Max, Jake, Cody, Baily, Sam. I actually love simple names like Bob. It makes me laugh, for some reason. But, I'll send along any creative names that I hear. Just remember that I named my first dog, Lucky.
Hi Michelle. Welcome to the Corgis Remembered group. I feel your sadness and identify with your ode to Riley. He sounds like a wonderful fellow and friend. I'm so excited for to be getting a new Corgi baby in one week! I thought nothing could help our sorrow when Dylan, 14, died. Then we got our puppy (now 4) Lucy! And the fun began. Keep us posted on your new baby & continue writing about Riley anytime.
They have a list of breeders, and many links.
You might want to check out Teresa Blakstad in Sandpoint; I know nothing about her except that our neighbors' wonderful Pem came from her, and I noticed her name cropping up often in the 2009 Specialty Results page on the CPWCC website.
