Why call it Corgi Tales? What about corgi tales? Pembroke Corgis don’t usually have tails (if their tails are traditionally docked). It’s an intentional play on wording (tails vs. tales). . . because I’m also sharing stories about life with my fur kids. Years ago, I was in a display/fixture store. The store was decorated in October for the upcoming holiday seasons. A well-dressed woman walks into the store. She was elegant in her stylish hat and beautiful knit red suit (she wore a St. John!) . . . walking with her was a short mysterious dog. The dog had a beautiful face, amazing demeanor and an air of confidence.
I approached the woman and inquired about her well-behaved companion. Her eyes lit up and she was more than happy to elaborate about her Pembroke Welsh Corgi and how over the years she’d had many dogs, but her Corgi was by far the most intelligent and had the most amazing qualities. Up to that point, I had never seen or heard of a Corgi. I quickly jotted the name of the breed down and had Corgi on my mind for the years following.
A couple of years later a beautiful tri-color corgi puppy adopted and stole our hearts. Dockers is our ambassador to the Corgi-kind — and what an ambassador he is! I’ll share more about my noble corgi and the two more (which makes three) corgis that have since adopted us. So this is Corgi Tales from the past, present and new stories of our furkids.
I’m just a regular gal married to my ultra-supportive and loving high school sweetheart – the love of my life. For over a decade I worked for Fortune 500 companies as a programmer, Web applications developer/designer. Today, I’m also a photographer incorporating my images and creative work on Corgi Tales®. I attempt to capture the corgi kids and their personalities through my lens from my perspective of them.
When I read back on posts I wrote even a year ago, the stories are new all over again. Little details are forgotten quickly. What better way to journal some of our experiences and silly this-and-that’s about our kids than a blog.
I’ve received outside interests for creation of calendars and perhaps a book of the corgi tales images and artwork shared here on the journal and from my private collection – stay tuned!
52 Weeks of Corgis is a personal photography project I started this year. It’s never too late to start a personal project like this. Please join me if you think this is something you’d enjoy doing and sharing on the blogosphere. Read more about the 52 Weeks of Corgis Photography Project.
I’m calling this “Flashback Fridays“. On some Fridays, I’m digging through my collection of archived photos I’ve taken over the years and sharing images of our furkids from years past. These images may be of our Corgi Boys, our first furkids who were not Corgis, or images taken recently that didn’t get posted but were memorable too. Many of these photos will be from my pre-digital photography days. Read more about the Corgi Tales Flashbacks Moments and Photography.
