Vintage Corgi Road Show continues our hunt for hidden treasures. This time in Central Kansas!
Today on The Daily Corgi’s Vintage Corgi Road Show, we’re joined by Jeanette DeMars of Corgi Connection of Kansas to discuss her latest find – Monroe!
Yes, Kansas is full of hidden treasures. The scenic Flint Hills; stories of the many who passed through on their way to the West; stories of those who stayed, and literal buried treasures hidden by Spanish expeditions, Indians and outlaws. But arguably, the greatest hidden treasure is Corgi Connection of Kansas.
Jeanette and her intrepid band of Corgi-prospectors are constantly on the lookout for under-appreciated treasures like today’s feature, Monroe.
Monroe is an 11 year old male Corgi, but don’t tell him that. Watch as he trains Jeanette on the proper application of a squeaky toy:
Jeanette has an instinct for quality Corgi companions. All she knew when she picked up Monroe was that he had been in the care of a single family for 11 years.
After getting him up to date on his shots, she quickly determined that the only negative thing about this gentleman was his heartworm test!
For his age, Monroe is still in excellent condition. Like many vintage Corgis, however, Monroe does have a few dings and bumps. When you turn him to his side, you will notice a growth which has been identified as likely a fatty lump. Jeanette has consulted with experts, who believe this lump is currently best left as is.
Frankly, Monroe is happy to skip on the surgery and focus on more pressing interests, such as squeaky toy retrieval and looking for a new family.
Thanks to correspondent Gretchen Anderson for another excellent field report!
