SNOW!!!!!!



Well the next post was going to tell a little about Higgins, but we got snow today and I thought that would be more exciting. :) Higgins and Fannie have both seen major snow, so this is nothing to them. Higgins' transport to us from rescue was held up for a month because of snowstorms in Indiana. The poor guy would only pee on white mounds of snow for the first week, because he wasn't sure what that brown/green stuff was!

Ella really hasn't experienced snow and this is Jetson's first winter. He loves being cold, so we knew he would not have a problem with the white stuff.

I made a snowball for him to chase and he proceeded to carry it in his mouth like a squeaky toy. Then Ella and Jetson decided they were going to fight for the snowball. At one point it was like they were having their own little snowball fight, complete with frapping around the yard. Here are a couple of pics and a video. More videos on PartiCardis Youtube.


GO PLAY IN THE SNOW!!!!!!!

Fannie


To get this started I thought I would do a post about each dog. Fannie is the dog that got this whole corgi thing started. I decided that I wanted a corgi and didn't know a thing about (PLEASE RESEARCH BEFORE DECIDING ON A BREED!!!!) them, just that they had big ears, no tail, and a goofy smile. She has been a challenge from week 1, but we wouldn't trade it for the world. Anyone who knows corgis, knows not to teach them to bark, especially for food. You guessed it, that was the first thing I taught her and she still does it reliably come breakfast and dinner. And she has taught Jetson to do it also! :)

About a week after she came home with us, she was diagnosed with Parvo. Nasty stuff and at the time the survival rate was not good. Thanks to Dr. Blackburn at All Creatures Pet Hospital she came thru and never looked back. Although, she did chew the feet off of a squeaky toy that was supposed to be a vet!

She has only been to one obedience class and that was when she was about 11yrs. old. So she isn't a performance dog, but she is Queen of the house. She is always around where you are and we made sure to socialize her well. She is well mannered when out in public and loves attention from strangers. She probably would have made a good therapy dog, but we just didn't know about stuff like that back then.

She has helped raise the Cardis in the house now and has her bluff in on them. She can be grumpy, but mostly she just sleeps and watches everything now.

I could go on and on about her, but I will stop here. It's hard to believe this corgi thing started with her and that she will be 15yrs. soon. She has slowed down a lot, but the spark and spunk that make her Fanniegirl are still there.

Hi



Well, here is the Corgis 4 blog. We are just getting the hang of this blog thing, so you will have to bear with us for awhile. Here is a pic, so you will know what we look like! :)

We have four corgis. Fannie, a sable Pembroke, who will be 15 in April. Then there are the three Cardigans. Higgins, a blue merle who is 5 yrs and came from CWCCA( Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America) Rescue. Ella, a brindle and white mismark who is 4.5 yrs and Jetson, a blue merle who is 9 months old. Ella and Jetson are both from Cardiridge.

This blog is about them, so we hope we don't bore you too much. They are pretty fun to watch and it should be interesting with a puppy in the mix.

Stay tuned for more from us. :)
