Arrival Story: Raja Babu, my one-year-old Lhasa-Apso/Shih-Tzu mix really needed a doggy friend. So, in 2004 I began to look for another dog. I had always wanted a pure-bred Pembroke Welsh Corgi. At a local fair, I ran into a lady with a beautiful sable Corgi, and she gave me the breeder's name. I called, and her dog had a new litter. So, Raja and I went to Cresswell, Oregon to look at the pups. I wanted a female and the runt of the litter. And there she was looking as cute as only a Corgi puppy can. Her face said, "Love me, love me." Raja really liked playing with her. So, we brought little Cassandra home. Raja had to make quite an adjustment though. He was not as thrilled with her once I put her in the car. But over the two years they have been together, they have become great buddies. Raja still remains top dog, and Cassandra is his little helper.
She goes by PC and her AKC registered name is Cassandra Queen of Tikopia.
Bio: Cassandra's story. My mommy thinks Raja is Top Dog. Actually, I just let the little furball think he is top dog! My mommy gives me bigger treats because she thinks I am the underdog. Woof, I am so clever.
There is a cat in the house, Poka. The cat is very naughtly. She tries to scare me. I just avoid her, sometimes I walk a Corgi mile to avoid her.
My favorite game is to play Doggie CNN with Raja. We sit by the window and bark as all the dogs walk by. If you want an update on Eugene Dog News tune into 1275 Woof Eugene! We have lots of fun. Lots of doggy jokes. We introduce dogs to the neighborhood, and tell them who is the boss!
The cats in the neighborhood really bother me. They sit right outside our window and lick their whiskers! Doggies, can you believe it?
I am a happy Corgi. I love my Mom and Raja. I also love Poka the cat.

For four months I stayed with Michelle and John and ate good food. None of this freeze-dried raw crap that mom feeds me. Well, she found the unopened box of Honest Kitchen, and she gave it to me again today. Phew! I didn't eat it. I ate the pellets around the yucky raw food, BOL! Then I heard her say to someone that it doesn't matter whether I like it or not. It is good for me, and that's what I will get. Humph! I think I have to cart this bag of yucky food out to the garbage. Can someone help me?
My friend Demon writes about an old Egyptian dog called Gahiji. When I first heard the name Gahiji, I thought he was a cartoon character. BOL! But it is a great story. I love the way he writes. He has bunches of humor!!!
It is raining again, blah! Mom promised to take me to the coast if the weather was nice. I hear that next weekend will be nice but can you believe the weather folks? I wonder why these guys never lose their jobs. They are never right. BOL! I go without my rain gear, and blah, it is raining! No snow here though, and I cannot play in it like my East coast pals!
Mom was away for four months and I was with Michelle and John. They took me hiking and camping. Lots of fun. I was a happy corgi! Check out my pictures on the Oregon buttes. Mom will again travel, but I hope not for such a long time. She needs to retire and take care of me!
