• 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

Herding Trials for some of the CastAway Boyz!!


Accompanied by their Pembroke Pal, Miss Ghillie, and their foster mom, K.D., CastAways, Nolan, Wilson and Charlie all had a taste of what it is to do the job for which you were bred – herding! 

Time to meet the sheep, kindly made available by their owner, JoAnna, and Steve, their trainer, who graciously provided herding instinct testing for our Rescues. – Thanks Joanna and Steve!

What’s your guess? Who had the herding genes in the group? Check out the photos below and see!

Getting one-on-one attention is never a bad thing for a Corgi.  Steve shares some herding advice before the sheep enter the scene. Dog and shepherd must be in synch for this to work well!


Foster mom, K.D. shows Nolan and Wilson how it’s done.

Whoa…Nolan is a natural!

Perfect Nolan, round ’em up!

Hey, wait a minute!

Nolan takes a moment to inspect the perimeter 
and savor the beautiful day.

Meanwhile, Wilson has work to do, with the help of Steve’s corgi, Sammo.

OK Wilson…these are the sheep, it’s up to you now!

You’ve got it Wilson, that’s the way to get those sheep in line.

Thanks Sammo…and you’re a great teacher!

Good job Wilson!

Run Wilson, run!

Watch carefully Wilson!

Go get ’em Sammo!

Someone looks like a tired Corgi.  Showing your new buddy what it takes to be a real herding dog takes its own kind of energy!
Oh, and for the record…no photos of Charlie wasn’t a coincidence. He and Ghillie are like-minded on this one, showing no real interest in the sheep. Much more fun to play with the humans! 
And thanks again to Steve for giving us an absolutely gorgeous November morning, complete with show dusting in the air, and the opportunity to see which of the Boys possesses natural herding talent!

CastAway Update – Wilson and the Fall Colors!


Time to assess the progress 
our CastAway Rescues have made! 
1. Kelly – This nice fellow has gone to his new home in New Mexico and prospers there with his new human mom and canine sister.
2. Charlie – Our Wild and Crazy guy is calming nicely. Still the most enthusiastic and adventuresome, this guy will need an owner who has had experience with a busy, strong-minded corgi. Make no mistake, Charlie is a real sweetheart, but is like a teen needing “tough love” at this stage in his development.
3. Nolan – Proving to be the shyest or the four, Nolan continues to make great progress in his socialization efforts. And there is a Big Surprise in Nolan’s future! Stay tuned to learn more about it in the next few days!
4. Wilson – Our handsome little tri-colored boy has also proven to be a bit on the shy side. Getting used to all of the new people, places and things in the world outside of a puppy mill environment is more of a challenge for him. He will take a little longer than Charlie or Kelly to acclimate to the Big World. Wilson will need a home with someone who has had a history of working with a shy dog.  He’s a very sweet fellow and is slowly blossoming in his foster home.
Below: Wilson gets a chance to explore the gorgeous acreage of his foster home (with his German Shepherd companion for moral support). These photos were taken early in October.

What’s this? A bucket…what does it do?

Heading out for a big adventure!

Hmmm…sure smells good here!

Can you say Corgi in Heaven?

And more Heaven!!!

This is my favorite: Looks more like a painting and makes me want to be there!

Thanks for hanging out with me!

Wow!  This is really cool.  Can we go around again?

Wilson makes the Social Scene

Wilson proved a bit more hesitant when it came to meeting new people and new dog pals. At first he didn’t want to walk on a leash, but with a bit of encouragement he managed. All the new sounds in the Outside World were overwhelming. 


Strangers were initially too intimidating, but after ten minutes or so that Corgi Curiousity just got the better of him and he chose to approach cautiously. He seemed to especially like Amy and the feeling was mutual, as you’ll see from the photos.


When it came to meeting new dogs, Wilson walked right up to Eko (Anatolian Shepherd) and they were fine together.


Though he wasn’t quite as gregarious as Charlie and Kelly, Wilson’s social confidence was still much better than anticipated for a first outing. This is a really sweet little guy and his Foster Mom reports that his confidence is growing noticeably each day. Wilson learns very quickly and we’re starting to see that he’s got quite the sense of humor! Wilson, you’re a Winner!


Wilson took a real liking to Amy!

For those who say dogs don’t smile…think again!

Not only is Amy friendly, but she has the Ear Scratch down to a science. Ahhhh!


And, as an added bonus, a picnic table! Any self-respecting Corgi is always alert for a Food Opportunity! I’ll just take a little look-see up here!

These new folks are really nice, but you’re still my favorite Foster Mom!

Eko is really TALL! Good thing he’s a nice guy.

Hi Teresa! So nice of you to come down to my level! 
It’s so much nicer when people don’t tower over me. 
Charlie spoke so highly of you! Thanks for making me feel at home here.
