“Riley and I went to a puppy class, and more classes, and then we began learning agility from a wonderful instructor” writes Barb. “Over the months, Riley proved he was fast, smart and agile. Together we walked and exercised 80 pounds off Barb, and at just over two years, Riley brought home his first two blue ribbons and became Rocket Man Riley!”
“Around Thanksgiving 2009, I heard that a local rescue group had taken in a young Corgi female. We made the contact and a few days later drove across town to meet the 8 month-old sable and white girl who had been found wandering by animal control. She was little but determined, had one brown and one blue eye, and soon she added her own Tegwen spiciness to our blend.”
“Teg loves people and is always ready to cuddle. She is serious about vermin control and also makes sure our kitty Henrietta gets play time. At the dog park, she goes from person to person, getting pets and adoration. She owns all the toys but loves nothing better than a game of tug or frapping with Riley. Tegwen may be a Pem/Cardi mix, but her personality is pure Pem.”
“She also takes agility lessons and did one competition run last summer, where she stopped mid-run to stare at the judge and had to be picked up, redirected, and put back down to finish. Teg is still challenged by fears and anxieties. She tells her stories with her eyes. Luckily, she smiles a little more each month. Teg is heading toward becoming a therapy dog as she nears her third birthday.”
Love the story, love the pics !
how great to meet such a "fit" family
The pic w/ the corgis on their mom's lap in the chair makes me think of that portrait with Queen Elizabeth and her corgi!
More Oregon corgis, yeah! They are both absolutely adorable. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Love the article and pictures of Barb and her Corgis! Corgi on!
