From the time I was a wee pup, I dreamed of becoming the “Corgi in Charge.” It was an especially daunting challenge since I had to overcome what I considered the “Curse of the Fluffy,” a genetic hair flaw that set me apart from the average Corgi.
Over the years, however, I discovered to my delight that my thick, fluffy coat was actually a blessing with immeasurable rewards. My mistress has proven time and time again that she could never be put off by a little surplus hair grown beyond the Corgi norm. In fact, she seems to celebrate all that fluff!
Not one to be long deterred by an overabundance of hair, I set about striking my claim as “Corgi in Charge” of the working horse farm that was to be my forever home. There is no end to the things that require my oversight, from horses to herd, Labradors to oversee, humans to control, treats to be wrangled and games to be played. Each morning I begin the day at my official post, waiting to greet the first visitors to the farm.
Once the farm was running smoothly with me at the helm, I decided it was time to share my experiences and insights about what it takes to be a “Corgi in Charge” with other Corgis and their humans. I quickly realized that being an author was a really big job. When I sat down at the computer to write my story, I discovered my paws were too big for the keys. Not to be foiled by a little technical difficulty, I solicited the aid of my mistress.
Every day when she was done riding the hay burners and teaching her students, we would adjourn to her office to work on my manuscript for Musings of a Horse Farm Corgi. I’m proud to say that for a human, my mistress did a great job relating my story exactly as I told it to her.
The next thing I knew, my story was in print and I was off on a whirlwind book signing tour, shaking paws with fans and adding my pawtograph to every copy sold.
My book has made it possible for me to connect with great Corgis and their owners across the country and even in Europe and Australia! As a way to thank all my Corgi pals who buy Musings of a Horse Farm Corgi from my website at Down The Aisle Stories, I’ll send them a “Dog in Charge” certificate imprinted with their name. All they have to do is include their Corgi name on the instruction section of the order form. The certificate is suitable for framing so that everyone who visits their home will know exactly who is in charge, just like they do at my farm.
Maybe it’s time for all Corgis to put pen to paper to record their special journey. I’ll be first in line to read their stories.

Way to go Beamer. And what a generous sort you are to bestow certificates on other corgis. I love your book and this is a beatiful entry.
I LOVE this dog!!!!!
