06.07.2021 - Limitation on "hereditary clear" status
Following the announcement that The Kennel Club will limit the assignment of "hereditary clear" status of registered dogs to two generations, the organisation has announced that this change is now set to be implemented as of January 2023. The decision to restrict hereditary status was made by The Kennel Club Board in 2018 on the recommendation of the Dog Health Group, and followed a Kennel Club study, published in the journal of Canine Genetics and Epidemiology. This change was put forward to safeguard against the impact that dogs with an incorrect ‘hereditary clear’ status could have on health issues within a breed.

19.05.2021 - Corgi among the 23 Easiest Dog Breeds to Take Care Of
Some dog breeds are easier to take care of than others and with the sheer variety out there, it could be puzzling to know where to start. Using information from the American Kennel Club, here is a round up of some that are generally easiest to look after.
Bichon Frisé, Bulldog, Collie, French Bulldog, Golden Retriever, Irish Setter, Labrador Retriever, Beagle, Border Terrier, Corgi, Dachshund, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Whippet, Maltese, Papillon, Miniature Schnauzer, Greyhound, Poodle, Pomeranian, Irish Wolfhound, Boxer, Tibetan Spaniel, Chihuahua.
If you would like a dog with a touch of class, you could do worse than a Corgi. A favorite of Queen Elizabeth II, the Corgi is a "bright, sensitive dog who enjoys playing with his human family and responds well to training". Despite their gorgeous looks and playful nature, the Corgi is a vigilant watchdog that comes equipped with a bark that could be easily mistaken for that of a "big dog." Corgis also make for excellent family companions.

Kitsch, the Bed Bug Sniffer Dog
According to the American Kennel Club's ranking of the most popular dog breeds of 2019, the Labrador retriever has for the 29th year in a row kept its title as America's top dog, but the Pembroke Welsh corgi, with its stubby legs, adorable smile and even cuter butt (in the US tail docking is still allowed!), has jumped into the top 10 of America's most popular purebreds for the first time.
Brandi Hunter, the AKC's vice president of public relations and communications, said she wasn't surprised that Labs once again came in at No. 1. Corgis taking 10th place was surprising. But their increased popularity on social media and even TV appearances could have had an effect on that, she said. "I think they got a lot of exposure from pop culture, especially on social media. There are lots of accounts dedicated to corgis. You get to see them in 'The Crown,' (British TV series), but they're also really great dogs. They are a lot of dog in a little package. They're very adaptable, very smart and people tend to really fall in love with them."

In 2015, Ryzhiy became Russian obedience champion.
His owner Olga is a police woman and had originally bought him for her daughter, not planning to specially train Ryzhiy at all. But fate called when Olga needed a "special task dog"! She says Ryzhiy loves eating and playing which helps to train him to take the signal position if he finds drugs.
For 6 years he has been working at train stations and bus stops. Most police dogs "retire" at 8, but Ryzhiy is just getting started!

Ever since mom left to work overseas, my grandpa took care of me.
He stood as both my father and my mother.
It's a good thing my grandpa is cool.
When we take a bath it's always like a party.
Everyday we play at the park.
We also enjoy movie marathons.
My favorites are superhero movies.
It's really a good thing I grew up with him because he loves me so much.
I wish I could tell him how much I love him...
(The camera reveals why the narrator is off-stage)
Love makes family (mp4)
A German Shepherd, a Poodle and a Corgi died. All three stood before God on his throne, who asked them what they believed.
The Shepherd said "I believe in discipline, training and loyalty to my master." God said "Come and sit by my right side."
The Poodle said: "I believe in the love, care of my master and world peace!" God said "Come and sit at my left side."
The Lord then looked at the Corgi who said "I believe you're sitting in my place!"

Willow (top left), the Queen's last corgi who was almost 15, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday. He had a cancer-related illness and the Queen did not want him to suffer further. The other Corgi, Holly, died 18 months ago. Willow's death brings to an end a remarkable history between the Queen and corgis dating back more than eight decades. Willow was the last direct descendant from Susan, a birthday present for her 18th birthday. It's truly the end of an era. No wonder the Queen is left heartbroken. The only ones left are now the two Dorgis Vulcan and Candy.

Corgis will be released throughout Vermont in the hopes that they will establish a thriving wild population. They were once a top predator feared even by mountain lions, but their population was decimated in the early 20th Century due to a captive-breeding program for the British Monarchy.

When Netflix commissioned The Crown, the most expensive TV series ever made, the fortunes of an old Welsh dog breed were hardly at the forefront of their minds. But the popularity of the series, which broadcast its second season last year, has inadvertently led to a resurgence in searches for the endangered Welsh corgi. According to the Kennel Club, interest in the Queen's favourite dog breed shot up by 22 per cent last year, with registrations of corgis rising from 393 in 2016 to 456 last year. In 2014, when they were put on the club's endangered breeds list, just 274 were registered in the UK.

Waiting at the Door
Today you did the bravest thing
One of Ben Stassen's Brussels-based nWave most creatively ambitious projects to date is the upcoming 3D animated adventure tale "The Queen's Corgi" written by Rob Sprackling and Johnny Smith. Budgeted at more than $20 million, the film follows the adventure of Rex, the British monarch's most beloved dog, who loses track of his mistress and stumbles across a fight club with dogs of all kinds confronting each other. During his epic journey to find the queen again, Rex falls in love and discovers his true self.
The film will be in the spirit of Disney's canine classics such as "The Fox and the Hound" and "Lady and the Tramp" and is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2019.

24.07.2017 - Has the Queen Adopted a New Corgi?
It appears Queen Elizabeth isn't quite finished with her corgis after all. Despite saying that she did not want to take on any additional pets back in 2015, she has - reportedly - adopted a new dog: a nine-year-old corgi named Whisper.
Whisper belonged to the late Bill Fenwick, who served as Sandringham's gamekeeper, and the Queen took him (and a Bichon Frise) for walks when Bill passed away in January. The Queen was close with Bill and his wife who died several years ago. The Fenwicks often kept and trained the Queen's corgis. It's even said that they were given a two-story home so that the corgis could practice going up and down stairs in anticipation on getting on and off airplanes. After the Fenwicks did so much for her dogs, it seems natural that she might welcome Whisper into the fold which at present comprises Willow the corgi and the dorgis Vulcan and Candy.

02.01.2017 - First Dog of California Died at 13
Sutter Brown, the Pembroke corgi belonging to California's Governor Jerry Brown became ill in October and underwent emergency surgery. However, a particularly aggressive form of cancer could not be entirely removed.
Sutter returned home, and to the Governor's Office. He was outside the Governor's Mansion to greet trick-or-treaters on Halloween, and accompanied the governor to vote on Election Day.
But in recent days his health had deteriorated rapidly and it was decided to let him go. On 30 December, he passed away peacefully with the Governor and First Lady at his side and was laid to rest at the family ranch in Colusa County.
Sutter is survived by Colusa Lucy Brown, who joined the Browns as a puppy in 2015. The Governor's Office said she would assume Sutter's duties as first dog.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
