Here are my two corgis Raze & Ouzo with their buddy Reba the frenchie. Raze considers Reba his girlfriend - who could resist that face!

I have long ago lost count of the number of dog hairs in my car. It is as much a fixture as the seats themselves.

The Three Musketeers and the Three Amigos. Great pics, Missy and Kiwi!

I get dog hair in my contacts. My Gidget's a Samoyed.

Glad to know someone else gets dog hair in their contacts!!

Missy, love your Cardis. Who is their breeder???

Higgins, the blue merle, came from Cardigan National Rescue. Ella, 1/2 brindle and white face, came from Cardiridge in St. Louis. Do you subscribe to the corgi lists??

Hiker Chick....where's the pic??? BTW, saw the dog hair on the seats in a different thread!

I love Gidget. She is a beautiful dog. I understand about the dog hair in the contacts. I have found dog hair on me 5 days into a vacation in Maui, and the dogs were at home!

My cardi's come from 2 different breeders. The girl is from Larchmont in Sonoma, CA and the boy is from Llynhill in Chula Vista, CA. Both places are about a 5 hour drive north or south from me. I do get the showcardi list right now, but mostly just lurk and read.

I just love those cardigans. They make me laugh every day.

Gidget is GORGEOUS! So clean and white! And what a coat! Is she a show dog or just a hiking buddy?! The corgis like to play rough around the neck, so they usually turn a little yellow!

Missy, I have heard of both the breeders that you have gotten your Cardis from. I lurk on the 2 corgi lists also. Once in a while I will post, but only when I have a "generic" question. Corgi L seems to get a little heated at times and I got caught in the crossfire. Do you show?

Cardis are SO different from Pems. I love my Pem girl, but man she has a mouth on her that is loud and often compared to the Cardis. When we went to pick up Ella, brindle and white, Fannie (Pem) was in the house and the breeder, Marla, asked "WHO is barking like a Pem?!" Well, guess who it was! Marla just laughed when she figured out it was Fannie.

Thanks for the kind comments, Kiss, Miss and Kiwi. :) She also has a terrific disposition -- incredibly sweet and loving, which has made her a great therapy dog. Her parents are champions but Gidget's chest was deemed too narrow to show. And I had no interest in showing at that time, so was fine with me.

Gidget's my buddy for everything. Hiking, camping, scootering... we even shop together at the dog-friendly stores (such as REI and Barnes & Noble).

Corgi's are one of those breeds that make me smile just to see them. A friend of mine is a Corgi devotee. Great dogs.

We lost our Corgi a year ago August. Wonderful dogs... I'd like another.

My parents got the two cutest Pembrokes a few months ago. King Arthur and Guenevere (sp?).

Awww, they are really cute. Sorry about your corgi, it's never easy to let any of them go.

Finally got an E!!! 06 EX-P AWD AT Atomic Blue Pearl! I will get pics of the pups in it soon, maybe this weekend.

They love that they can see out the big windows! We fixed the crate on top of the seats folded flat and it worked great!

And we just opened the doors and the hair blew right out in the wind!!

Here's our Female Akita:

:D She's a cutie.:D

Corgi's and the like.... too cool. They are so animated looking. I feel the same way about my Bullies.

I would like you to meet Bronson - Ch. Action Heat Em Up (1994-2002)

Taken from this world by a lunatic neighbor... He will be bred this February to the daughter of my girl Cleo. She is the one in the background on my avatar image. Modern veterinary science is to cool.

Just had to share.

HUTMO - Best of luck with your upcoming 'Heritage' litter! Is your E your dog show vehicle? Any loading tips? I'm wondering if my Wagon Walker will travel best stowed inside or if I'll end up with it on top.
Oh - this is what I'm talking about:
Katrina - could you say how you secured your crates on top of the flat seats? Are the Corgis in 200-size VariKennels or the like?

Can you tell I haven't picked up my new E yet?:grin: :shock: :grin:

Thanks -

02-05-2006, 09:29 AM
awww...bullies. I have never met one in person, but would love to. May have to look them up at the next dog show. Isn't science amazing? That is great.

Sponge, your Akita looks like a big cuddlebug! Just like a teddy bear that you could hug for hours.

Ha Ha, dog show!! Nope, unfortunately not a dog show vehicle. Maybe someday when it's paid off! I think showing might be fun and there are about 3 people trying really hard to get a show puppy (cardigan) in this home (eek one's a breeder!). We feel very honored that we are "wanted" (lol), but don't want to commit to something like that just yet. And I don't feel as if I know enough!

BUT, the crate that we used was a metal 36x24x20 (maybe, that's close to a 300 varikennel) that we just sat on top of the seats and then ran rachet ties thru the openings and attached them on the floor of the E. We sat the crate longways on the driver's side then the other side was enough room for other stuff (i.e. dog who isn't crate trained and at 12.5 I am not making her!) We have only done it once so far, but it was fairly easy to figure out. Then we had room to slide stuff underneath the seats. I don't know if your wagonwalker would work or not. If the wheels folded in, I am almost positive it would. We also loaded the dogs from the back of the vehicle.

BUT, on one of the lists I am on, I know one breeder who can fit 8, yes 8 200 size crates in her E, plus all her stuff. Granted she doesn't have any passengers, except the dogs. And she takes the seats out.

Maybe someone here can give you more info! We are still trying to figure it out. If we figure out anymore tips, I will be sure to post them.
Pugs are office manager doesn't really like dogs, but she LOVES pugs!

Alright I was never really in that much of a hurry to get my camera working and my pictures rolling but after finding this thread I will have to work faster. We got a Pembroke back last June and love him. We thought he might get lonely during the day(my wife and I both work) so we just got another one last Saturday(he's the one in my little picture next to my screen name). They are the craziest dogs I have ever encountered. Wonderfuls pets.

here are my corgi pics!

OMG --
You have a fabulous Corgi! What a sweetie! What a beauty! What a great potential Fly-ball competitor! :D

BoxyBluChik - Thanks for the info on securing the crate - sounds like a plan! Thanks also for the info on the woman who manages eight 200-size. I won't need that many, but it's sure good to know! And, hey - do NOT say you don't know enough for a show-potential pup. If there are three people who think you are a good show home, I'll bet chances are durn good you are. I was looking for a pet when I was smitten w/ my boy Dex and had to have him. He was only available to a show home. What did I know about showing? diddly-squat, that's what! I finished him in nine (9) show weekends, owner-handled. Don't know showing, but I know a good dog. So do you, I'd bet.

There are some cute corgis in the Element Owners Club it looks like!! Qbert, I thought that was a corgi in your pic, but hadn't had a chance to take a good look.

Tessa, maybe someday a show dog, after the E is paid off!!! LOL LOL Let me know if you can slide your cart/tote underneath, you have me curious.

Still haven't take pics of the dogs in the E yet! Can't this weekend either, it's supposed to be brutal here! Finally cold weather!!!

Funny... One thing you can count upon... Corgis are fools for balls!

Nice Corgi!

We've always thought our Corky was part Corgi. The more pics I see the more I'm convinced. You make the call.

Hey all,
Wow that is a whole heap o' corgwyn being toted around in Elements. One thing we adore about the E is how our dog can hop right in. That is her pic in my avatar--her travel crate sits right behind one rear seat and fits perfectly.

I'm smitten with the Cardigan Welsh Corgis and was delighted to find this year-old thread. All of the Corgi owners, let's have an update!

We've never owned a dog so we're discussing the possibility of getting one someday. The Cardi is my first choice, and with the help of the adorable antics of Cardis featured in various YouTube videos, my kids are on board, too. I have contacted our local Cardi Rescue for info. Now we just have to meet some in person.

Anyone in Orange County, California have Cardis we could meet???

Edited to add: We did bring home a Cardigan Welsh Corgi puppy on February 24. He's the best dog, we love him! You can read my blog to see ongoing photos of my cutie pie as he grows, just follow the link in my sig.

What in god's name have you people done with the legs of these dogs?
Poor bastard's can hardly make it over a curb! If you guys want, we can start a charity or a foundation for the little guys and hope there is some type of veterinary surgeon who could make the appropriate repairs and stretch those stumps to more normal lengths. You Corgi people have my utmost sympathy in your times of need for more leg....

If you guys would have gone the route of the Jack Russell, this problem could have been avoided completely.

Here are some examples (also known as Kaytee and Peety) of what i'm talking about:

And last but not least....

Kaytee's 3months and Peety's 2yrs
Sorry guys. Atleast I'm not proud of my canine kids ;)

02-05-2007, 10:48 PM
LOL :) That's what makes the world go round. In these parts, with all the snow this winter, we are measuring our snow depth in Corgis! Yesterday we were in a place where it was 3 corgis deep. I guess that would be one and a half Jack Russells, LOL!!:)
Best to all,
Zinger and KM

I don't have a corgi now...but the more I read and see about them -- the more I think I want one as my next dog. What cuties :) :) :)

I had a Shih Tzu, but he was too high strung to put up with my toddler, so he's found a loving home with friends in the north bay (older, quieter couple...much better match for his temperment)

I think Farther is bringing his "pack" of Corgi's to the Humboldt camp out this I'll get a chance to check some out!
