Happy New Year! Enjoyed reading your "Notice to Pet Owners"...so true!
We have two children with 2 dogs and 3 cats! Our son just graduated from college and our daughter is in her second year at the University of South Carolina! So we sure can relate to the money for college....uuuugh!
Dear Susan and Beezie: I hope that you will come back to visit Williamsburg and we would then have the pleasure of meeting you and sitting down with a Pimms Cup! (from the description, you may have been at The Trellis or perhaps in one of the garden taverns in Colonial Williamsburg?) My mother was a master gardener here so I have also inherited the desire to pull weeds! Mom was nearing the rainbow bridge when I got Tasha from a kennel in Smithfield and I remember the smile on her face when she met my pup. Beezie's pictures brings back those bittersweet memories. Now, that was six years ago and Tasha is my alpha girl with Bear the curmudgeon and Linus my fluffy fool. Tasha has earned her therapy title and is in novice agility running on top of the tunnel instead of through it! She's always the rebel racing straight to the A-frame when we are to do the tire....
My paternal family was based in Rockford and there are times that I dearly miss the Forest City and my grandfather's ranch in Winnebago County (I could have raised a gazillion corgis out there!).
So, in your travels, come to Virginia and have dinner at my house (I'm a Certified Executive Chef by profession) and we can walk our beautiful corgis proudly down Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg where people, usually at a loss for words when seeing my oncoming triple corgi wedge say, "Aren't those the dogs the Queen has?".
Corgi hugs from Bear, Tasha and wee Linus (and, of course, the outnumbered human, Nan). P.S. We are attending the NC Corgi picnic this coming weekend and all three corgis have their Virginia Tech football jerseys for the parade! Now, this might be a foolish thing being in the heart of Tarheel country. (My daughter Kate is a senior at VT and is driving from Blacksburg to join me!)
Hi ya back...hope everyone gets to feeling better down there. Did you get any of the rain fallout from TX? We actually had a rainy weekend in northeastern Indiana...but not sure if it was from the hurricanes! hehee. Anyway, hope you don't get the virus in your household. I gave my girl Addie a bath tonight in the kitchen sink, and she looks like a fuzzy bear! Very cute, but, the biscuit jar is considerably lower now! sigh.
Hi everyone - thank you for the nice welcome from you all. I belonged to MyCorgi once before but was being bothered by someone who seems to no longer be a member so I have come back and am very glad to be here. I missed this forum very much and look forward to making new friends.
I'll respond to you all personally as soon as I can. There is a virus in this house and I've got a couple sick people I'm running after but it shouldn't be too long.
Dear Beezie and family: Welcome to our family! We are a three-corgi home: Bear, Tasha and Linus. Bear is almost nine, Tasha is nearly seven and fluffy Linus will be two in January. It's busy, busy, go, go, go! Seems like we are always doing obedience, agility, herding and, heaven help me, corgi nails! Remember, if you have any questions about living with Beezie, please post. There really is a wealth of information in this great group. Corgi hugs and kisses from Williamsburg, VA: Nancy, Bear, Tasha (agility queen) and Linus (a fluffy reincarnation of Dudley Moore).
