Dori’s idea of heaven is an endless game of catch
Ladies night with dori, Isabella & her mum Beth
theobesegeek asked: I read in a comment you got dori at 4 months old but I thought you had gotten her from a breeder. Is there any reason why you didn't get her from the breeder sooner? Just curious
you read correctly, i did get Dori when she was 4 months old. her breeder had originally intended on keeping her as a show dog, so she was the only one in her litter not sold. however, her husband fell ill, and she made the tough decision to not keep Dori, as she wasn’t going to have any time to devote to training a young puppy to be a show dog. she reluctantly placed Dori up for sale, 4 hours later i was bombarding her phone and email for the chance to have her. 5 days later, we had a new fluffy terror at home.
part of me is still sad about that, because we didn’t have the months of anticipation, news of the litter being born, puppy pictures and updates being sent… However, sacrificing that anticipation meant getting a puppy that came crate trained, house trained, leash trained, up to date on vaccinations, and already familiar with basic commands. i think it was a fair trade-off.
hope that answered your question!

twosillycorgis asked: Where did Dori come from?
hi ed and jiggles!! *paw waves*
Dori is a southern girl. she came from Legacy Corgis in Greer, SC. here’s their website! http://www.legacycorgi.com/
Her breeder, Sharon Wilson, is an AKC breeder of merit, and (random fun fact) her best dog Cain is actually the cardi they featured on the Dogs 101 episode for cardigans!
thanks for writing, we love you two!
there’s a fantastic blossoming cherry tree on our walk. i plunked Dori onto the stone wall for an impromptu photo shoot. she was thankful for the reprieve, but completely disregarded the camera. what a diva.
Dori and i (and my manfriend) are VERY seriously considering a cross-country road trip to the next Corgi meet-up in san diego (i’ve trained my beau well.. he knows how much i lovelovelove san diego, and that corgis make me immensely happy, so he’s actually the one who suggested it)
Please keep me in the loop!!
if we dont make it out for the next one, we’re thinking about the one after, which we’re hoping will be in january, so it coincides with our winter breaks from school.
