I'm a full-time mom, with a toddler at home and an amazing husband. I grew up on a ranch in Southern California/Arizona, but I'm loving living near the Sierra Nevadas now. We finally have a house with more than enough space for our little Corgi family member, and we're so excited!.
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you in regard to where we got SPUD. The Breeders name is Jacqueline Bousquet her # is 961-7806. We are so charmed by SPUD. And I found it amazing when she asked what type CORGI we wanted and we said MELLOW and that is what we got. He is a DOLL.
We had a 2 1/2 year-old neutered male Pem when we welcomed our first son home in January 1985. Churchill quickly took responsibility for the baby and stayed constantly by his side, watching over him, growling at strangers, and generally standing "guard." When Christopher started toddling, he began to ease his constant guard somewhat - which was a good thing, as our second son arrived in April, 1986. Churchill then began to "nanny" Anthony, while still keeping a watchful eye out on big brother. For a while, he was a very busy dog! But again, when Anthony was able to walk, Churchill relaxed his guard a bit.
After a few years "off duty," our youngest son arrived in November 1989. I remember the look of surprise on Churchill's face when we brought the baby home......."ANOTHER one? Well, give him to me, I'll take care of him!" And so he did, for a year or so, until Nicholas was on his feet. :-)
Churchill passed over the "rainbow bridge" at the age of fourteen in 1997. He was, and always will be, a special and honored member of the family.
Corgis are fantastic dogs and they are wonderful companions. I hope that you find your special girl soon!

I've spent many summers in Auburn. My grandparents lived there - so made our summer trip for visits. In fact my brother -in-law and sister-in-law live in Nevada City - I don't think that is far from you.
I always thought I would end up living there - but I'm still in Washington.
