Five years later we ended up acquiring our very first dog, Bernie. We now have three corgis total, two Pembrokes and a Cardigan Welsh Corgi named Byron that appears in the quilt photos. Byron was a puppy when I began my quilting experience and has grown along with me in this fun journey! He loves inspecting all the packages that come into the house, finding scraps on the floor, stealing boxes and testing out quilts before they go to their homes.
Bernie is my very first PWC and she’s quite the spitfire. The first year was trial by fire as we had to catch up to her smart little brain. She was also trained up to competition level agility but had to be retired early due to a shoulder injury. She’s much happier being on Ottoman Guard as that is her favorite spot in the whole house. She’s five years old this month. We nearly lost her a few years ago due to a bladder stone removal that went badly so we are very thankful to still have her with us.
And of course – Mr. Byron! He is our goofy Cardigan and just loves life. He just turned a year old this month and still acts very much like a puppy.
I have to keep an eye on him because he loves stealing out of trash cans and really loves my test quilt sandwiches to chew on if he happens to find one that made its way to the floor. I call him the shark!
