We purchased our 1st corgi male named Dingo 5 years ago. Our second corgi was the female puppy of a freinds Corgi. Her name is Miabell and we call her Mimi for short. She is 3 years old now. They are the loves of our lives.
Koufax does look like yours. maybe they are distant cousins. lol. Koufax and Scully come from different parents but are four days apart and the best of friends. They do enjoy playing with different dogs but they only rough house with each other.
by the way.... I love the dirty face picture.. Do they do that very often?
Thank you for the pic comment and I love your pics too...especially the one that got "dirty"...as mine come back looking like that....isn't it amazing how fast they their white turns white again...although then my floor needs sweeping! I love puppy pics also...I could look at them for hours...doesn't matter who's they are!
Most people around here have never seen a Corgi so they are quite the conversation when we're out and about! We've had people take their pix, ask tons of questions, etc. They defintely cause a stir. They make people laugh! =)
Hello! Blizzard and Sooner are my first Corgis of any flavor really, Cardi or Pem. They are also the first dogs I ever paid for...the first purebreds...and the absolute best money ever spent! I would have glady spent 10 times what I did for the joy they bring! =)
Patton is my first corgi, but I will always have one from now on! He is my heart and soul...watching him become debilitated from the DM is absolutely heartbreaking, But he's a resilient little guy - takes it all in stride.
Your guys cannot get DM from an injury. This is a genetic disease. I am hoping that more breeders will start testing for it (they developed a test about a year ago), This way we can eradicate the disease over the next few generations of corgis. Here's hoping!
I should have more pictures of Patton over the next few weeks!
Thanks for the welcome! Love the pictures around the pool, and the muddy corgi is a classic :-).
DM is degenerative myelopathy. It is a disease that is prevalent in the corgi breed. It is equivalent to ALS or Lou Gehrigs disease in humans. It causes a progressive paralysis of corgis. It's a disease well worth learning about, there is lots of information about it on the internet, or I am happy to tell you more about it if you want more information!
