Arrow Wins in Orlando!

My boy Arrow, (GCH Mischief Afoot Arrow's Solid Alibi) won Best of Breed in the AKC's National Owner Handler Series. His mom Michelle sent us their picture. I'm proud of them, what a great Christmas present!

 

The Quimper Corgi Clan on Parade

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:

It’s National Dog Day

“Every dog has his day.” Well, this is our day. Chloe Anne, Darby Jean and I went for a run on the beach.

They Grow Up Fast!

These are my kids from a litter with Briar Rose: Arrow and Bravey. Their Mom Michelle is shown here with them as puppies and today as one-year olds! They live with Michelle, her husband Rob, and their daughters Heather & Hiedi. They also live with Lady, a Corgi who keeps everyone in line.

The “Corgi Walk in the Pearl”

Every year, the Oregon Humane Society and the Columbia River Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club benefit from the “Corgi Walk in the Pearl“.

This year, over 400 (yes, four hundred!) Corgis strutted their stuff in Portland's Pearl District, we had a ball. The entry fees help to support the Oregon Humane Society, one of the nation's finest facilities of its type and Corgi Rescue run by the Columbia River Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club.

Sponsors for this year's Corgi Walk.

I was there with my kids Chloe Anne, Darby Jean, Arrow and Brave. We also had Lady with us who helps run the Wilson's house where Arrow and Brave live. I got selfies with a whole bunch of people. Here are some pictures that Dad took:

 

This is Me at the PWCCA National

My last show in the US… Mom and Dad took me to the Annual Specialty of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America. The Bluegrass Bow-Wow was held in Wilmington, Ohio, (wherever that is). The judge was Mr. Thomas “Tim” Mathiesen (Nebriowa Corgis) of Cotati, CA. He gave me the First Award of Merit… Mom and Dad were really excited… and I got a lamb chop for dinner.
