Playful Bogart was born in Panorama City, California. He started out as a show puppy, but as his coat kept getting longer, the shows came to a stop by the time he was about a year old. Bogart found his forever home with some help from a special somebody at the CWC National Rescue Trust. Bogart is a sweet boy who adores Pembroke his “sister” Stormy, though she pretends not to notice him.
“She prefers not to discuss her age, but we’re guessing she’s ‘over 39’ in dog years. Definitely a senior gal”.
A lady never reveals her age. Or her weight.
Changing homes was a difficult adjustment for this Pem girl, and it took about six months or so before the true Corgi spirit began to emerge. Stormy’s now the resident ‘royal majesty’, unafraid to let her subjects (everybody else) know when they are slow to their appointed rounds.
Five year-old Cardigan Cindy is the latest addition to the household. She was returned to her Florida breeder after four and-a-half years in her first home, when her family found themselves facing some difficult personal circumstances.

Cindy spent about four months adjusting to her “new” life there, while her breeder explored re-homing possibilities. In January, she made her way to her current New Mexico digs. During the short time she’s been with Lola and the family, she’s had some health issues and quickly grown familiar with her new vet.
A case of high fever and other symptoms of kennel cough have plagued Cindy, and a sensitivity to antiobiotics hasn’t helped any. ” Have you ever tried to get a measured liquid down a little dog’s throat? Cindy, the floor and I have shared two doses of the Pepto so far.”
A wee Cindy, all innocent and “who, me?”
“She’s as cute as the ‘bug in a rug’ but demanding and bossy, vocal about her desires. When she’s healthy once more and the weather warms up, I’ll be showing her a thing or two. Obedience classes are available just a few miles down the road. That, in addition to resuming our daily one-hour-long walks, should help to mold her into a nice, quiet, GOOD dog. That’s my plan anyway. We’ll see how that works out.”
I’m not ill-behaved. I just know what’s good for me — AND you.
“Bogart and Stormy are easy to live with and quite lovable. I must have done something right with them.”
Good luck with that, Lola. Maybe Stormy can help lay down the paw, er… the law!
