In my first shows as a Veteran (I just turned seven years old) I had a great time!
At the Cascade Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club’s annual specialty show I was chosen Best Veteran in Sweepstakes by judge Mrs. Janet Summer (Kinion Corgis) of Oregon City, Oregon.
In the breed judging, I was Select Dog, Best Veteran and Dad & I got Best Owner-Handled Dog. Our judge was Mr. Kim Visgo Nielsen of Denmark. Dad had to carry a big handful of ribbons home.

Here are Dad’s pictures from our entry in the Port Townsend Rhody Grand Parade.
Marching and Waving…
“Working the Crowd”…
We marched in Port Townsend’s Rhody Grand Parade this weekend. What a blast! We had fourteen Corgis with us and we had a great time. Mom and Dad really liked hearing, “Oh look! Corgis!” all along the parade route. We even had Her Majesty leading us:
Bring your Corgi (with or without a tail)
and spend the day in beautiful Port Townsend

All well-behaved Corgis are welcome, no flexi-leads please.
Last week at the Chintimini Kennel Club shows in Albany, Oregon, Arrow did great! On the first day he won Select Dog, and because his Mom Michelle was handling him he got to go to the National Owner Handler Series Group where he took first place. Because of that, he got to go to the NOHS Best in Show competition where he won Reserve Best in Show. The next day he won Best of Breed and then won a Third Place in Groups.
On his first day as an AKC Champion, Arrow won Best of Breed at the Peninsula Dog Fanciers’ shows in Bremerton, Washington. His Mom Michelle showed him and he did great! I’m so proud of both of them.
My boy Arrow, now “CH” Mischief Afoot Arrow’s Solid Alibi won his AKC Championship Saturday, at the Peninsula Dog Fanciers’ shows in Bremerton, Washington. Mom, Dad and Arrow’s Mom, Michelle, celebrated with champagne… Arrow and I got some too.
My boy Odin (from my litter with Fergie) won Winner’s Dog Friday at the Arrowhead Kennel Club shows in Scottsdale, Arizona. Odin’s Dad Brandon handled him for the first time and did great! Odin’s Mom Kerrie got him all groomed and ready to show. What a team! Thank you breeder Robin Jones (Desprado Corgis in Sierra Vista, AZ) for mentoring Brandon, Kerrie and Odin.
