Ed and Janice M.’s three Corgis go just everywhere they go, including on vacation.
Virginia is for lovers — and Corgi lovers!
“Our vacation to Virginia Beach was for the dogs, really” laughs Janice. “We’re retired empty nesters, and just like we did for our two sons, vacation was all about the Corgis.”
“Everyone stopped us. Some knew the breed, others didn’t, but I gave them a little history lesson. This was our Corgis’ ever visit to the coast.”
“Ed is so excited about their post. He’s a real pushover when it comes to his Corgis. I think we’re tied for who loves them the most.”
“Seven year-old Darcy Jeanne was our first Corgi. She was an older dog who came from a breeder looking to place her in a permanent home. The first time I saw her I fell in love. When we brought her home it was like she had always been here.”
“Darcy is a Mama’s Girl.”
“When I her Darcy laying in her Daddy’s chair, I call her my overgrown hamster!”
“Not knowing how much Corgis like to eat, I would feed Darcy all the time. After she’d gained a couple of dozen pounds, my vet told me I was loving her to death and had us cut back on her food, and no treats except green beans.”
“In two months she lost about 30 pounds.” (Yay!)
“One Corgi wasn’t enough, so I went looking and found a six month-old tri puppy.”
“My husband fell in love with him, and we named him after J.E.B. Stuart.”
Silly wabbit — and still handsome!
“With two Corgis in our home, we went for a third. Muriel Penny, half-sister to Stuart, came to live with us at eight weeks old.”
“This completed our family of bunny butts.”
“She was named after my best friend Muriel, who passed away from knee surgery. Her middle name Penny came from our habit of looking to the heavens whenever we were out walking and found a penny. We would always say it was from our mothers who had passed away, to remind us they were always looking down on us.”
“Now every time I call for Muriel, I have great memories of my best friend and the 25 years we had together.”
“Our Corgis bring Ed and I so much happiness!”
“There are many stories I could tell about how they make our lives so full.”
“Between our three Corgis and the male (Henry) I got my neighbor to adopt, we call our place Corgi Circle.”
“My son’s Lab Forrest is ten years old, and I’ve been babysitting him since his puppy days. My Corgis love him so much, they wash his ears and teeth and wait every morning for him to come over.”
“He lives right behind us and our yards connect, so they have a big place to play all day.”
“Darcy, Stuart and Muriel are our babies and enjoy the run of the house. I love them so much. They bring joy to our home, and I don’t know how I ever lived without them. We always had dogs in our life but my dream was having a Corgi … I ended up with three!”
“They are truly the heartbeat at my feet.”
