Even at 11+ years old, Phoebe continued to enjoy the show ring in the AKC veterans and the UKC altered classes. Her movement was still effortless and the applause from her audience only her due, in our princess’ mind!
We feel strongly that breeding of Pembroke Welsh Corgis (or of any animal) is a serious undertaking for only the extremely knowledgeable and conscientious. Phoebe was bred by and co-owned with Marian Johnson Your of Tri-umph. Marian has been training, showing, and breeding Pembroke Welsh Corgis for more than twenty years. Her dogs have conformation, obedience, and agility titles, and include a Best of Breed winner at the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America National Specialty in 1989. We are honored and proud that she entrusted us with our first show dog and filled our lives with “trainability, true movement, and type”
Phoebe, a light sable bitch, had a dead-level topline, perfect movement, and an outstanding temperament. She was a CH Arbor Sand Pieper daughter, out of CH Tri-umph Tenderly.

Phoebe earned her TDIA and has received multiple awards from the American Red Cross, the Military Officers Association of America, the El Paso Chapter of the MOAA, the National Association for Uniformed Services (NAUS), and Chapter 30 of the Society of Military Widows (SMW) for her therapy dog work at William Beaumont Army Medical Center and on behalf of the and Fort Bliss’ active duty military personnel and their family members.
Before we moved from Fort Bliss we had begun seeing several patients who were recovering from wounds sustained in Iraq. Their sometimes horrific and frightening appearance does not discourage her from cuddling up in their laps.
Phoebe seemed to have a special understanding for the soldiers on the mental health ward, but also enjoyed her last stop of visiting day – pediatrics – where belly rubs abound. I attribute Phoebe’s empathetic and just amazing temperament to her breeder and co-owner, Marian Johnson Your.
