From the moment her folks Anitra and Bryan set eyes on her at seven weeks old, Ingrid has been very sure of herself!
Ingrid (a.k.a. Binga Jones) has been in agility training since she was six months old.
Her favorite trick is rollover, “so much so that sometimes I cannot get her to simply lie down. It would be embarrassing if she wasn’t so cute about it.”
“My favorite thing about Ingrid is her butt. It’s out of control. Every morning when we wake up, it — the butt — gets soooo excited for another day.”
“A common phrase we use around her is “Wag that Butt”. If you’ve seen the episode on Seinfeld where Elaine dances, that’s Ingrid. We should have named her Elaine ;-).”
Even though she’s the youngest of the four dogs in her family, this two and-a-half year-old is firmly the head of the pack!
“Calvin is our foster failure. That’s what it’s called when, as a foster, you never let the dog move out. He’s a three year-old Corgi mix from the Wichita, Kansas animal shelter; we fell in love with him at first sight.”
“We now call him our Foster Ambassador. Cal has a great temperment; he dog sits all of our fosters, and shows them the ropes.”
“Four year-old Baxter was our first-born Corgi, somehow a compromise between a Great Dane and a Cairn Terrier. Bax is our teddy bear. We call him un-athletic. His goal in life is to get his belly rubbed by as many people as possible.”
“Alvin is our special Corgi. He has really short legs. His favorite activity is to swim … in the snow, the grass, the playground sand … anywhere but water! Alvin especially enjoys when his Dad sings to him.”
“This is Esther, a nine year-old Australian Cattle Dog. She’s not a Corgi and doesn’t even try to be. Esther has never quite understood the logic of the short legged creatures who surround her.”
Check out you-know-who leading the charge!

I'm in Minneapolis too! Corgi playdate??
What a wonderful looking family! If I attempted to foster, I would be just like you and end up with a foster failure. Enjoy your group!

We are in The Twin Cities too, and would love to go to a Corgi playdate. We have two Corgis named Fritz and Teddy. We call Fritz, "Little Fritz", and we call Teddy, "Ted E. Bear".
