Hi Ginny, I think we met before at one of the Corgi picnic at Burbank...plus a year or so ago I donated several cates. I got Dolores' email and doubtful that we can make it again this year but will send a check...the dogs are in agility training on the weekends. Will you post the new picnic information on the site?
Thank you Ginny. . .I had a wonderful time at the Picnic. . .I was coming down with a summer cold, but it didn't keep me away. . .my pupsters had so much fun with all the other Corgis. . . .and I too hope to attend next year's event. . .by the way, that red dress was too cute. . . .
The Corgi picnic for Corgiaid was a great experience yesterday. It was great meeting you, Phoebe, other Corgis and their human companions. Thanks for sharing info on the event; I wouldn't have otherwise known about it. With all the activities, I forgot to ask people more questions about agility. But that's ok, I have contacted local trainers and agility clubs for their advice. If I decide to enroll Mac, I still have to decide whether a recreational or competitive class is best.
Anyway, I posted online pictures I took at the picnic. Links can be found on the event page and my latest blog entry on my Corgi page.
Good deal & agility is all about fun! That's what we as humans have to remember! Beginning classes are on leash and you get to use treats or toys as rewards, so it is pretty easy to motivate a Corgi...LOL. Phoebe told us that she wanted to do agility by what she did in our home. Things like walking along the BACK of the couch & climbing anything she could find to climb. One of her nicknames is Fearless! She loves the A-Frame and the tunnels too. She was 2nd fastest in her class for the timed jumps...but the 1st place doggie cheated! His legs are about as long as mine!
Mac already has a head start over others since he likes his doggie pool! That was one of the things we used in beginning classes to have the dog get used to a different & unstead surface. Phoebe's biggest challenge was the teeter. But after a little bit of work & a teeter at home, she is a champ with that and will take it on her own if it is left out!
Hi Ginny, looking forward to seeing you, Phoebe, and all the Corgis at the picnic. I'm going to see if I can reserve a spot in the beginning agility class that dogservicesunlimited.com has to offer since it might fill up. I hope Mac can handle it if he gets in. I'm sure you and others at the picnic will have some good tips on how and where to go to get started in agility so that should be helpful too.
I do have a weakness for the tricolored pups! Our Chapin came from California. It was a bit of a challenge to find a smaller than normal corgi to go with our Cagney. But we managed to pull it off and the girls are really happy together. Cagney was a rescue.
Hope you get a chance to load more pics. Sounds like you have 3 pupkids at home.
Welcome to MyCorgi Ginny. I was just getting ready to send you a message on Dogster regarding being Dog of the Week, and here I see you joined. Congratulations. I'll bet Phoebe is getting lots of kudos from all her pals.
Hope to talk to you soon. I hardly go on dogster any more except to check the forums for good stuff. If you hear of any cardi boys that need rescue, let me know. I'm in the hunt for a cardigan boy.
