The Story of the Somermeyer Corgis
Telly was very vocal, loved fetching, watching out the window, patrolling the yard and garden and riding in the truck to our lake house.
In 1997 we added Gwenhwfwar (Gwenny) to our Corgi family. She was an independent soul who loved nothing more than napping between meals. She not only patrolled the garden, she learned the art of snacking in the garden — especially asparagus and cherry tomatoes.
We had to learn to watch closely or she would pick the night’s harvest!
Telly and Gwenny had a grand life together, especially at the holidays when Santa was sure to bring more toys and treats.
Our Corgi family again expanded in 2008 when we were blessed to add a Cardigan, Ellylor (Miss Elly).
Despite our initial apprehension at adding a youngster to the elderly Pembrokes, they adapted quickly. Her youthful energy began rubbing off on them!
Miss Elly truly loves the boat rides! (Nice doggles, kiddo).
Time marches on, and sadly Telly went to the Rainbow Bridge in November of 2009.
Because we were used to a Corgi trio, we considered adding another one to our family. Then in October of 2010, Gwenny passed unexpectedly to the Rainbow Bridge.
Steve is a commercial winemaker, and “tannat” is not only a grape varietal but also a river in Wales.
The Cardigans helped Kimberly raise money for a walk to cure breast cancer when her co-worker was diagnosed with the condition.
The Pemrokes had previously participated in fundraising for Type 1 diabetes, which Kimberly has dealt with personally.
Thanks for reading our story!”

Elly looks JUST like my Mason! I'd love to know where they got her, since Mason is a mysterious shelter rescue.
