• It’s not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

  • Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

    It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..." _Hermann Hesse

Corgi Line Up for Rally!

This weekend Denali was entered in two Rally trials, one on Saturday afternoon and the other on Sunday morning. The first thing we saw when we arrived on Saturday was this great license plate – on an Element, naturally!

The next thing we saw was that this Rally trial was to be seriously dominated by the corgi lineup! We’ve never had more than two other corgis in a trial with us and typically they’re not cardigans. (Denali does have a crush on Charlie, Barbara Miller’s sweet fellow however!) Check out the scoresheet. All weekend the two cardigans ended up within one point of each other. Yesterday Denali had the edge, today it was flipped. And perhaps with good reason – they’re both C-Myste dogs!

To my surprise the handsome brindle fellow with the big smile was Sage’s Uncle Galen (CH-C-MysteBaledwr G’Day Terratote RE HT CDX). He made the trip all the way from Lodi, CA to get his RE title this weekend and it was a treat to see him!

Here’s Galen with his mom.

Denali captured legs #7 and #8 in her quest toward the RAE2, scoring in the 90’s in all classes, but just missing out on placements. Overall, I was very pleased with her, particularly after having had her tooth pulled on Tuesday. She recovered quickly and hasn’t seemed bothered by it.

In true Denali fashion, she did cause a bit of a stir when she got out of her crate (I’d neglected to zip it all the way up after giving her a drink.), scampered around the edge of the ring, through the cafe area, and right up to me where she promptly brushed my leg to let me know of her arrival.

I was on the other side of the ring talking to another one of the corgi folks. From her crate so she covered a lot of ground very quickly, with two of my rally friends in hot pursuit, as well as one of the ring stewards. But I didn’t see any of that. When I looked down to see what had just brushed my leg, I saw this black blur, then her happy face announcing just how pleased she was to have found me.

Just as I realized that it was my dog, the stressed out ring steward caught up to us. Panting a bit she said, “Do you know whose dog this is?” Uhh, yes… it’s mine! Just then my friend showed up with Denali’s leash and she was escorted back to her crate. I popped her back in and she immediately turned around and plopped down with her back to the me, clearly displeased to have lost her freedom. That’s Denali for you – I just love that dog!

  1. Sounds like an exciting weekend! Good girl Denali for going straight to your mom. Not sure my dogs would have done that. In fact, I know Summer would have gone visiting to see how many belly rubs she could collect before being found out…

    🙂

  2. We have an element also…its the perfect dog car…especially for corgis. I love your car tag also..wish I had thought of that one!
