So proud to be spear heading this project. Please join GTA Corgis in helping raise money for CorgiAid, and get some great swag at the same time! Shirts will be on sale until Monday August 4th.
Look at this! Is this not one of the cutest designs on a shirt, and gosh, for a GREAT cause! I totally bought one as a work shirt and I’m doing a rare reblogging to get the word out there to all Simon’s followers! Signal boost for Corgi Aid, which is a fantastic organization who does a lot for our stubby little best pals!
Also, it has a Cardi on it too, woot! ;) Come on, you Cardi folks, you know how hard it is to find our breed sometimes - let’s boost some sales for the tails! ;)
Love you, your dogs and blog! Always eager to see what new photos you have to share, I am in love with your rainbow of Corgis! You're such a nice person too, so positive and friendly. And your dogs are clearly extremely well cared for, so very much loved and incredibly happy as made very obvious by your amazing photos. Your blog is just a "breath of fresh air" to me, if that makes any sense!
Aw… thank you!
I love my dogs and I love sharing them. It sure has taught me to be a better photographer over the years, and I’ve got great subjects. They keep me in line… <3
They’re the best dogs - and I’m glad I get to share my life with them. Sometimes they take a bit too much of the pillow, but… XD
To me, Caleb's eyes look a little smaller than average. Is that really the case, or is that just an illusion created by the white on his face/his dark eye color? While I think all of your dogs are gorgeous, I'd say my soft spot is for Caleb. What a handsome fella. <3
It’s an illusion created by the wide white and the bright red against that super dark eye rim color, yep!
The eye should have distinct corners and therefore is not round. Neither is the eye truly oval; rather, the upper curve is more arched than the lower curve. Incorrect eye shape and size spoil the dog’s expression. Dark eyes are preferred. Light eyes are undesirable. Small or sunken eyes
give a “piggy look” and are faulty, as are round, bulgy eyes. The entire pigmented portion of the eye (iris) should be checked for blue spots or specks. Dogs other than blue merle that have a blue spot or speck in the iris must be disqualified. (CWCCA Illustrated Standard)
Him and Tess have the best eye set and shape. Simon’s aren’t bad, but he could use a bit more upper curve.
Tess’s seem a bit bigger because of how little white she has on the face, but… yep, same size and shape!
(He’s my soft spot too, and super snuggly. Everyone loves him.)
I admit, I’m not fond of the heat during July in Vegas when I go to SuperZoo… but I do get some lovely photographs. :) Red Rock is one of the prettiest places I’ve even been. Just amazing, the colors and the stones and the backgrounds.
(I really like that public art series of the metal animals all over the sides of the roads.)
Also, that orange car is a McLaren, and we were following them and a Ferrari through Red Rock Canyon. Let me tell you, a bit of a shocker when you see about 600,000 dollars worth of car cruising ahead of you. ;)
I promised Simon a reward for getting bathed, fluffed, combed, and then having to go play show dog today for a friend… instead of going to the beach.
… and he did it quite well after not being in the ring for a year. Good boy, Simon. <3 Thanks for humoring me, buddy.
Tess, still looking scraggy and out of coat, but… you can sure see her structure under it. Gorgeous girl. <3
Hey! What kind of travel beds do you use for your crew? Sam and I are moving to Tacoma in a couple of months and I need something that he won't be able to eat while he's on the plane. Our flight will be about 5 hours, but he'll be in the crate for closer to 7. I hate that it'll be that long, but I want him to be comfy. I just don't want him eating the bed, you know? I'm looking at Kong.
The Kong beds are pretty nice! I use pads from West Paw, though —those things hold up like iron. Considering one fell out of the car and I ran over it in the gravel driveway for three days and didn’t realize it was in a mud puddle… washed it, it looked brand new. There’s also a new one coming out from Dog Gone Smart (who does AMAZING floor/mud rugs) that should be available at mid Sept- they were awesome at the trade show. XD
