Many of you know that I am owned by a herd of Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs - all females - and one of each color! They can be wild as the day is long, and are the subject of the note cards that I sell in my etsy shop, Classy Chassy. I've gotten many questions on how I get them to "pose" for the photos, and let me tell you right now, that is no simple matter! My girls are very active, and their attention is easily sent off in the opposite direction when they sense an upcoming activity, or when movement elsewhere is perceived! I take many photos for one shot, and ALWAYS there are BLOOPERS! There are the great shots, however, and these are the photos I use for my cards. Corgis have a natural beauty, spark, and a haunting look in their beautiful eyes that hits you like magic!
Welsh Corgi Dog - the Faerie Steed
"Pembroke Welsh Corgis are indeed a magical breed of dog, and legend has it that they once served as the trusted steeds to the Faeries in the woodlands of Wales. If you look closely at a corgi's coat, you can still see the outline of the Faerie saddle on its back and shoulders."
