Dewi's Kin Folk - Photos!

So on Sunday at the CCWCC herding fun day, not only did we get to see both Jon Farleigh and Dewi demonstrate their ancient Cardigan Welsh Corgi herding instinct, but we got to meet and hang out with some wonderful people and dogs, including Dewi's dad Jack (whom we'd never met before in person) and as a surprise, Dewi's sister (littermate) Anwen (who, BTW, also has a strong herding instinct), and Wilson and Jimmy (who belong to Taryn of A Tail of Two Cardis).

Although my hands were generally occupied with leashes, the two Girl Children and Taryn managed to get a few photos of the family. (Thank you, Taryn!)

From L to R: Dewi, Anwen (sister), and Jack (daddy)

FYI: Dewi's mother, Elowyn (who lives with Anwen and the wonderful Proia family at Arian Farm kennel), has the blue merle coat like Dewi's. Herding phenom Jack is owned by Rebecca Winkler (who we got to meet, too).

Jack is a H-A-M. :)  Really, he's such a happy Cardigan boy. I could see so much of Dewi in him, including his VOICE (as you can see he's using in this photo). He and Dewi are both talkers and have the exact same unique bark (whine, yodel, howl...). :)

This is eight-month-old Winston, and his own Mini-People. Winston likes to herd, too.

Where was JF all this time? Sitting nicely beside his Girl's chair...or herding, or in the kiddie pool, or getting a snack.

We hear the next time the club gets together in August, there might be some Lure Coursing fun. We're penciling it in on the calendar. :)


Happy Wednesday, Dog (and Cat) People!


  1. Great family pictures! We enjoyed them very much! Those are some good lookin' corgis. I think you said that Dewi had Coedwig's Carbon Blue in his ancestry? That might make Buddy and Bear some kin too?! Well, fun to think about anyway!

  2. How cool you got to meet your family! Dewi, you're bigger than your sister & dad. OOOH lure coursing is a fun sport! You're gonna enjoy that one as much as herding.

  3. Hi Y'all,

    Love the pics of everybody!

    Y'all come by now,

  4. Loved seeing the photos of Dewi's biological family :-)

  5. Awesome fam photos!

  6. The word verification to post my previous comment was "corgi." Do I win a prize?!

  7. That's really neat you got to hang out with the rest of the Corgi family. Great photos.

  8. Thanks for the nice comments, all. :)

    @Becky/Buddy - Yes, Dewi's mother's father is from a Carbon line. So, yes, Dewi, Bear and Buddy have blood relation. :)

    @Amber - Actually, the photo is deceiving; Dewi's father is probably a good 10 pounds larger than Dewi (not fat, but larger frame). We're excited to try the lure coursing. :)

    @Chandra - REALLY?! You had to type in "corgi"? I don't have a prize to give you, but maybe I could think of something to do in honor of this VERY unusual and extraordinary occurence. :)


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
