I have two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Dixie (6/14/95) and Tenby (11/25/04). They're my constant companions and roomies since my sons have grown up and moved on. (The dogs are way easier to live with than the boys!) I lost another Corgi, Dylan (1/8/97 -6/17/08) to hemangiosarcoma. He lived a great quality life for 19 months after his diagnosis. I miss him terribly.
I'm an attorney currently working for the government. I'm looking forward to the day I can retire and spend all day at home with the Corgis! I'm a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a BA in Political Science and the University of Louisville with a Juris Doctor.
I'm a fan of CorgiAid which helps pay medical expenses for rescued Corgis and Corgi mixes so that they may find their forever homes.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Dixie is an adorable 14 year old girl.
Tenby, a beautiful rascal who came to live with us in the summer of 2008.
We didn't get any points but we did win our Am. Bred class on Sunday over the dog who went reserve on Saturday. I still think we did quite well, she is really maturing and looking so nice. I think she has matured even more since the show. Watch out show season Spring 2010.
We are going to Fayetteville, Arkansas. She has been putting on quite a show when we practice and go to town all the time to see how well she holds in distraction and she is doing good. The shows as a puppy were to get her used to being in the show ring so when she matured, she would be more prepared. Hope it all pays off this weekend.
Spike has been shown as a puppy, she is only nearly a year old. Didn't do alot then, she was just too immature at the time which is understandable. But we are going back out this weekend to a show for the first time in a few months and she has matured quite a bit. Spike isn't nearly as dark as Tenby so I don't know how much it will affect her in the ring. The handler I sometimes use did make mention of it when I had her look at Spike when she was 6 months old, but her smutty face has lightened up some. She did say at the time it can maybe cause them to be overlooked. It's hard to say unless the judge actually tells you that though and really that isn't a breed fault. But I have heard the same thing though.
They are related then. Tenby is Spike's uncle. Both of Tenby's parents are on Spikes pedigree but they are actually split. Spikes grandsire is a half brother to Tenby by dam and his name is his name was CH Jeager St. Pats Lil Houligan ,,,,and Spikes grandmother is a half sister by sire and her name is CH Jeager Goodie Two Shoe's. Those two were bred and created Spikes mom. I thought I seen a resemblence. Cool.
Who did you get Tenby from? Just wondering because one of my girls Spike, has the same smutty face like he does. It isn't the most common traits among Pembrokes so just wondering if they are related. Spike was bred by Marla Blumm of Buckeye but I actually got her from Sue Griffin of Birdwing. Her dad is CH Coralie Ryde The Fyre and mom is Jeager Roller Blades.
So funny, we were just up in that area for the first time yesterday because we had a coupon for Dynasty buffet, where we ate so much we felt sick, but yes, we drove right by Ballard high school. It's a very nice area where that is, very serene. We live no more than 10 minutes from there, probably 5. We have been to Herr lane a couple times to get to Westport for errands. Hopefully we could meet up sometime!
Thanks for the advice about the ear thing...we hope it will just come up on it's own but they are just so daggone big. The problem too is that he always lies down on his side where the ear that is already up gets the airtime.
I love the pic with santa...you'll have to let me know where Dante could get that done too!
We moved from Zanesville, OH, which is about 5 hours from here. We got Dante from a breeder there whose website is buckeyecorgi.com. We'll have to stay in touch, and maybe we could meet sometime at a park near where you live (if there is one) so Dante and your gang could meet!
Hi Marty, I just joined this website and my husband and I just moved to Louisville to teach at J-town high. We have a 5-month old "son" named Dante who is a bundle of joy. What part of Louisville do you live? We live near the Owmoor mall and Lyndon dr. Maybe we could meet up sometime! Your pics are adorable.
Perhaps we could meet up the Wednesday or Thursday after next? As far as I know, I'm not covering any shifts. Weekends aren't really good for me, as I have to work Saturday 5 - 9, and Sunday 9:30 to 6. Also, I want to give Miso a few days to recoup from getting her last set of shots, as I'm sure she won't feel too well afterwards!
