This is it! I have finally decided to join everyone else in the 21st century! For those who do not know me, I am a child of the fifties, 1950s and 50's. I have had dogs in my life since Spotty, a "Great Pyrenees" who rather resembled a small white mutt with black spots over his eyes, one at his tail, and curved dwarfish legs. He was a real buddy and would have defended me against all comers. Spotty was purchased from a man on a street corner with a basket of puppies in Caracas ,Venezuela. We brought him home with us and that was the beginning of dogs for me.
In the sixties I began my experience with purebred dogs, starting with Basset hounds in 4-H. Gus and Katie were my two drooling companions. At that time I was given an AKC Complete Dog Book and that was my introduction to the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. What a humble purebred dog! I thought they looked like the perfect dog for me but at that time they were few and far between. Time passed and many different dogs came into my life, then one day, about 12 years ago, we found ourselves dogless through mischance. I started my search for a Cardigan, found my now good friend and sister from another family, Carolyn, who sold me my first Cardigan, Ch. C-myste There and Back Again, Bilbo. Now there are three Cardigans at my house and two shared with daughter. We occasionally breed a litter of puppies and have had some nice successes. I have enjoyed meeting many new friends through the dog show world and value those friendships highly.
