I have been practicing my stitches but don't have pics to show you yet, so I think this is a good time to introduce you to my furrbaby. This is Bronwyn, aka Bronny the Bonnie lil Lass, Beazie, Puppy Face and apparently 'Blue' as well because I just said the word 'blue' to the DH and she came running. Bronny is a red-headed tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi and she'll be 3 years old in May. She was born at T-bar Kennels in Prague, OK and is our 4th Corgi. My first corgi was a rescue named Bingo but I changed her name to Angharad (Annie) and she liked that much better. After all, a Welsh dog needs a Welsh name! She, too, was a red-headed tri. Our second corgi was Andrew, aka Drewie the Magnificent Corgi (a lovely sable), and our 3rd corgi was a foster Cardigan when we lived in Australia. She was a beautiful Blue Merle named Lara. When we moved back to the US life was no good without the thumpity-thump of a fat little corgi feet, so we got Bronny when she was 9 weeks old.

See the shawl like pattern coming around her shoulders toward her chest? Welsh folklore has it that those are the reins by which the fairies hold on when they ride the backs of the corgis. The black saddle on the backs of the tris and sables are the reason why I love the bold colored corgis best. The reds are pretty, but I adore the bold colors! Oh - please don't think badly of me for having her chained up - it was only to take her photo. She's a little escape artist so I had to secure her or these photos would have been of her bunny bum heading into the wide blue yonder.
