Today’s post represents a bit of a departure on The Daily Corgi.
I don’t normally profile breeders, but Tracy T.’s story is really about the kinds of qualities we’d do well to look for in a breeder. At heart, Tracy’s story is about a person whose genuine love of Corgis defines her as both a human being and a breeder.
Although I have only corresponded with Tracy, she has impressed me with the sincerity of her words and her many marvelous photos.
Hers is a story worth sharing.

The first time Tracy T. ever saw a Corgi, she was visiting a friend’s farm in Illinois. “Little did I know the sight of that impressively wiggly little body would impress me so deeply. He imprinted on my heart, and in the years following that fateful meeting, I kept alive the dream that one day — after finishing college and marrying — I would have my own Corgi.”
“Fast forward eleven years: I finished up Bible college, married a fellow student, and set out to find my furry friend. We purchased our first Corgi, and the rest is of the story is familiar.”
“They’re like potato chips …
… you can’t have just one!”
“Corgis are a particular “personality”.
“They are capable of conveying genuine love.”
“When a Corgi regards you with those piercing brown eyes, there is incredible dedication, loyalty, and devotion.”
“They have hearts willing to withstand much to prove just how much they adore you.”
“After we’d researched the breed and studied the genetics involved, my husband and I decided to step into the realm of the Corgi World.”
“Here we are more than five years later …
… sharing our love, passion and excitement for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi.”
“We believe our work is a part of our Ministry in giving a “Messenger of God” to warm the hearts of others.”
“We reach those who are lonely, those who are saddened, those who need a great companion, exercise partner, buddy, best friend, and families who are looking for that perfect pet.”
“One of my favorite things to do is capture photos of these lovely little characters as they strut their stuff across our yard.”
“A Corgi warms your home with lots of love, laughter, and joy!”
very cool! what a neat family, and great photos! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful dogs all. No link to the breeder? 🙁 I'd love to see more of their photos and learn more about their operation. (Tracy: You're welcome to contact me through my blog.)

We got a puppy from Tracy at Royal Ridge Farms in April of this year and have developed a friendship with her through the experience. She is a delightful person- and we LOVE our 10 month old Corgi puppy, Kinsley!
So charming !! Lovely family, thanks much for this
I could not imagine having another type of dog. I love my diamond who passed away a few years ago. Now I have morgan who is the heartbeat at my feet.
