We lucked out, being in Maine it wasn't too hot yet (though it did rain the entire first week we had him)! It is so cute too see how much they all look alike but with minor differences in color. Chezza is a cutey! :)
He's awesome, he gets bored because my other dog is super old and doesn't want to play with him so he chews on everything. What's weird is he hardly ever barks, he just makes little pig noises, it's adorable.
We are going to start seriously looking into breeders in about a year. It will be my boo's corgi, so he gets to pick out which color he wants. Even though he knows my vote is go blue. :)
My breeder is Molly of Keepsake Corgis in Grand Rapids, MI. She's insanely busy too. If I didn't live within driving distance, I'd be living off of a photo every 2-3 weeks. It is definitely a little frustrating, even more so for you when you live so far away! But I lucked out in that she's very responsive to email. I asked her like 3 billion questions and she answered them all, always, within a day. She texts me short status reports or pictures, I think that's really cute. My breeder and I text each other. So strange! I totally consider her as a friend now, so that's cool.
But yeah, if I couldn't meet the breeder and they weren't responsive, I'd have a big problem with that. You didn't have to fill out an application or anything? I had a 55 question application! AND I have to sign a contract!
And for food -- I have NO idea. I didn't get that far, but it's a damn good question. Vallhunds are cool dogs, but finding a breeder I imagine is even harder than finding a cardigan breeder! So rare!
Hahaha, I love your poopster crate! I see a lobster toy! And aww, thanks! I am totally jelly of your amazingly beautiful blue merle. She's stunning. And you only have 2 more weeks to go! How exciting! Clearly Chezza needs more toys. ;) Can't wait to see more Chezza pictures. I never get enough cardigan submissions!
Who is your breeder? A cardigan is next for us! Pudge is coming home on the 23rd. I'm in the process of moving. We are picking up Pudge on our way out of the state!
