In 1973 my parents gifted me with a beautiful blue merle Cardigan Welsh Corgi whose name was Kady. It was 7th birthday and Kady became my partner in crime. Kady was a descendant of Winsdown Brymore Carbon Blue. I was forever hooked on one breed. Kady and I frolicked and played. Thus began the first story of a girl and her dog. Kady went on to her championship, and had two litters. Life interfered and Kady went to live with my dad on a cattle ranch, where she worked cattle successfully.
In 2006 after the husband retired from the Navy, our Young Boy wanted to show and train. We looked at several breeds but like his mother, Cardis were in his blood. King Thorin came home and the story of a boy and his dog part 2 began. Thorin and the Young Boy have hiked, and shown, and cuddled to watch movies. Thorin has also been a nanny to the Young Boy’s kids and is an amazing old dog. Today King Thorin is the epitome of everything an old man should be, he sits on the lanai and barks at the cars to slow down and for people to get off his grass.
This year, 2021 has seen the start of part 3 of a boy and his dog. Our oldest grandson started his showing career at our 2021 Cardgian Welsh Corgi Club of America National’s week. This 7 year old rocked the ring in his sequined jacket with Ziggi. A Cardi he brought into the world one weekend with me, cleaned, fed and has trained. Although they didn’t place it was an amazing experience for him and he has the showing bug.
