Arrival Story:
After my beloved Tess died from insulinoma just a week before her 11 th barkday I knew I needed to become serious in my search for a corgi puppy. I went online to the national Pembroke website to look for breeders. I wrote to several I found listed there and one referred me to a breeder she co-owns corgis with who had 2 litters of puppies. My friend, Lorraine, and I drove 4 1/2 hours one way into Ohio to get Tegan. It was very hard to choose from the available pups. I finally decided on Tegan because she responded to the name I'd already chosen for her and because she had such great eye contact w/ me.

Tegan has gone to puppy class, obedience I and II as well as agility. She flew to Washington DC to meet my brother's family where she got to go to her first Petco, to the National Cathedral grounds and 3 different dog parks. Tegan was lucky enough to stay w/ friends when I had to have surgery, and adjusted very well both times. Tegan LOVES children and she sits down beside them and lets them pet her. Tegan enjoys showing off and running w/ her friends in the dog park. She's not sure about horses ever since one tried to eat her.

Forums Motto:
Tegan - All treats are MINE!

On February 5th, 2015 I had my vet help Tegan to the bridge. She had been battling the effects of DM for about a year and a half and it had compromised her quality of life so I chose to let her go. I miss her terribly and wish I could get another dog. I feel it would be best to wait until I retire as I am away a lot during the day which is not fair to a puppy. The time is approaching, though.

Thanks, Tegan, for being my dog and companion. You will always be missed.


It's my barkday, and I am pawtying hard!

Today my friends and I from corgitales are going to start our four day weekend of pawtying. Connor is picking everyone up with his transportikal and we are going to Culver's for cheese curds and whatever we can beg from unsuspecting humans. Especially the little ones who have a tendency to drop lots and lots of crumbs (yum!).

Then we are off to our buddy's house for a nice mouse hunt through the tall grass. I'm sure there will be Easter eggs and pseudo chocolate for all of us.

Hope you all have a great, happy Easter break!


I'm having a barkday!

Today is my barkday and I'm celebrating w/ my friends from corgitales and all you dogster buddies. Corgitales has two transportikals. Mine is one w/ classic design inside and out. Connor's is very contemporary. We have all kinds of outings to celebrate barkdays, gotcha days, dates between couples, raids on places w/ good food, and our last big outing was the Mardi Paws. We started it in Connecticut because one of our beloved NACs (not a corgi) was going to be put to sleep and he was such a big contributor to the Mardi Paws float I didn't want him to miss it. So we all trundle inside the transportikals (the float took up a lot of space, no surprise) and went there first. We had a lovely send of for our dear friend that made his mom cry.

We send faeries to friends in need and our moms started a private book club. Really fun for them. We, on the other paw, periodically send gifts to our buddies or fax treats to them. We don't mind cleaning the fax machine because cleaning it means "more treats!".

It is so nice to have friends. Thanks for being there for me!
