Is it prideful to boast about a lovely Corgi you've bred? Oh well, here I am, guilty then. Anne Bowes just sent me this photo of "Leah," Heronsway Showboat. She is from the Darby x Bridget litter that we (myself, Mary Elizabeth and Anne) bred; and we all couldn't be happier about how she is growing up. Here she is under judge Mr. Houston Clark winning Best of Breed at the Southern Adirondack show in Ballston Spa, NY. Readers of this blog may remember her from her puppy pictures (you can see them all in if you scroll down through the 2007 archives, links to the left!) She is such a pretty, happy, give-you-lots-of-Corgi-kisses girl. Actually, the little pup in the middle of the banner at the top of this blog is Leah. I know that Leah and Anne will continue to be a great team in the show ring and beyond. Bridget and Darby are so proud! -CS ^..^
p.s. Do click here to read Anne's interview when she was honored as Herding Breeder Of The Year. When she talks about being a 'walking encyclopedia' of pedigrees, I can personally tell you that she is most assuredly that! We are thrilled to have had Anne share not only the best of her line when she entrusted Bridget to us, but also the knowledge that she so generously shares. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi has a wonderful friend in Anne Bowes.
