Hope you can see the details in this photo. It’s an effect called “focus” from a friend’s iPad. Junie B and me on the green carpet. I love how we’re in focus while the judge and crowd are blurred, which is pretty much how I feel when we show – all that matters is us working together as a team – the rest is a blur. What a wonderful photo of a wonderful memory!
Cheery-O is home again. After giving us two beautiful and healthy litters, Cheery had been as enjoying retired life as a companion to an older couple not far away from us. Health reasons (the wife has MS) are precipitating a move; they tearfully decided it would be best to return Cheery. Of course, Cheery is welcome here for as long as she needs to be, but I would like to find her a new perfect forever home. Cheery-O is a healthy, happy, just turned 6-year-old sable Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and house-broken. She can perform some tricks, is leash and crate trained, and knows basic obedience commands. Cheery gets along with other dogs one-on-one (had shared her home and people with a bull mastiff girl), but can be bossy in a pack situation, so a home with no more than one other even-tempered dog is best. Cheery is AKC and UKC registered and has a Canine Good Citizen title.
If you’re interested in learning more about Cheery, please contact me.
June and I will soon be headed to the Big Apple for the Super Bowl of dog shows, the Greatest (to us) Show on Earth – June and I are going to WESTMINSTER!
Although I’m a New Yorker by birth and lived there until Bob and I were married, I have never been to Westminster. I saw my first corgi when watching the Westminster Kennel Club shows on TV (the year Bill Shelton’s beautiful Ch Coventry Queue won the Herding Group, if I remember correctly) and the rest is history. I hadn’t really planned to go to Westminster this year, but the timing just worked out, so why not? Junie’s daddy Pilot won the breed last year, and while I have no expectations for us to start a family tradition, it’ll be fun to strut our stuff on the famous green carpet!
Because Junie finished her AKC Grand Championship this year, she qualified for the prestigeous AKC/Eukanuba National Championship show. (I’ve been excited to get invitations to associated human parties as well.) Though we won’t be there in person (for reasons I hope will make themselves known by showtime) we’ll be excitedly watching through cyber-space and on television, rooting for the friends that are there!
Pretty Annie is a very sweet five year old dark blue merle Cardigan Welsh Corgi. She was found as a stray in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. She offers a lot of eye contact and is eager to please. She loves to crawl in your lap and be petted. She gets along with other dogs as long as they don’t get in her face and she’d rather not play with them. She is a bit timid about new things and sudden noises can be startling, so she would do better in a home without small children. She does bark for a few minutes when she hears human activity and she wants to be a part of it. She is reserved and self-confident, seldom jumps and usually walks at the ”heel” position. She is spayed, current on shots, negative for heartworms, microchipped, and will be a wonderful companion in a calm household. She is currently being fostered in NW Atlanta and her contact is Jody Allgood at (404) 291-3321 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Get in touch with Jody if you’d like to meet Annie!
