yup, we definitely want to try it out! several people have said he seems like he'd be a natural at it b/c he herds dogs at the park, my 5 young nieces and if there is a group of us walking with him lol
Maybe we will try it out as a barkday-birthday event :) if you could pass on the info to contact the herding locations, that would be very helpful!
Ollie is 10 months now, and will be 1.5 when I start law school & his new little sister Prie will only be 6 months old... I am so nervous about it! --both law school and the pups! I think having the 2 will be better so that Ollie won't be lonely all day and I'm hoping that I'm not just setting myself up for double trouble!
Hi Miri, Wanted to let you know that I joined the LBC (Long Beach Corgi group; not the Crips, LOL). It appealed to me because I love Dr. Dre and all that LBC gangsta stuff. My "baby" who's 23 and in the Peace Corps in W. Africa put an Eminem poster on top of a lithograph in my bedroom yrs ago, and it's still there. I actually think Eminem is brilliant and hilarious. I also think that Bailey is AMAZING. I feel so badly for Lucy because we are not challenging her. Anyhow, just wanted to post an update to my illustrious and only member of The OC Corgis to check out the Long Beach Corgi group--esp. bec. I think you go to herding classes in LB and might meet some great Corgi people.
Thanks for the info on the harness...it was the pink one I saw. I didn't see the wacky walker, I will take another look. I'm going to Google those items. Riley pulls too, we are hoping he will grow out of the pulling. Riley is still a puppy at 9 months and is into and trying to eat everything. Love these tris :)
I just found your info. re. herding classes by accident. Thanks so much! Maybe we can meet up at a herding class in LB. I will check out the website. Does it matter that Lucy's 4yo & has zero experience herding? Maybe it's best for our divas to meet in a neutral zone. ; )
Hi Miri and Bailey,
It appears that we're the only 2 members of the popular Orange County, CA Corgi group. Maybe we should consider merging our large (and growing membership, haha...still at 2) with the So. CA Corgi group. I love Bailey. We live in Fullerton and not too far from Downey, but Lucy tends to only like male Corgis!@#$%. We could try a play date and I'd love to get her involved in herding, since she shows big herding instincts. How would I go about it? Is Bailey friendly with all dogs? I'm so ashamed that Lucy is so picky about playmates. BTW, Bailey is adorable. She gets cuter in every picture! Even if Lucy doesn't like her, I LOVE BAILEY.
Bailey is quite the beauty. I love watching her herd and sleep on the seat belt. I'm happy to see that she is also an avid reader, LOL. Welcome to the OC Corgi group. So far it's a group of two, Bailey and Lucy!
What a cutie Bailey is, esp. with the seat belt strap to hold up a corgi-head.
Loved your herding photos here. I think Angus would make a great herder but I'm in northern NJ and haven't been able to find a farm with herdees (sheep, ducks, whatever) within a not horribly inconvenient distance.
You're lucky: seat belts and sheep. A corgi couldn't ask for anything more.
I got the puppy yesterday! She is the cutest, and so tiny. She is a Poso Creek puppy from Gilby and Danabug. I will post pictures soon. Her name is Darla - for My Darling Valentine. I have two Corgis - Yeah! Happy Valentines Day.
Sorry for the delay, haven't been on in a while. Conan's parents are Fanny and Angus. That's great you are doing sheep herding! We were going to Sara Goodman in Vista, but have had to take a break due to some coughing Conan's had. We're getting in figured out though. I'd love to hear how Bailey does!
