I’ve got a nice lot of photos to share — and updates — of some of the Corgis who recently got rescued from a puppy mill in Iowa.
Tune in tomorrow!
They will be Sunday’s special Dogs of the Day.
Sit. Stay. Smile!
If a hunky Welsh Corgi on a windswept beach is your idea of a celebrity snapshot, welcome home! My name is Laurie Eno and I invite you to the tribe.
Our first corgi, Connie, originated in a puppy mill in the mid-west. She somehow ended up in a NYC pet store where she was purchased by a family that lived in an apartment. I believe she was somewhat abused and ended up with one of their relatives in VA. He couldn't take care of her either, so I offered to find her a good home. Well, we ended up keeping her (this was in the early 70s) and had her until she passed from cancer at the ripe old age of 14. Since then, we've had four more of these preciouss fairy dogs; right now we have one adopted black-headed tri (Tate) and a rescued red-headed tri (Koda). When we decided to keep Connie, we went to a local dog show to find out more about the breed. I ended up joining the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of the Potomac and started Connie in obedience. She HATED it and it took her 13 tries to het her CD. Our next puppy (Bronco) loved working and got his in three shows. The corgis that followed were a mixture of "doing whatever you want, Mom" to "no way in Heck!". All it takes is patience and love to succeed whether your corgi is a new puppy or a rescue. Find out about and cherish the breed!
