The Puppy Reunion!

As you may recall, in April of 2019, our Pembroke corgis, Jackson and Miskey, had a litter. It began as a harrowing experience, but overall ended up great.

All of our puppies found terrific homes. Seriously, we lucked out in the extended family department. We hosted our first Corgi Crew Puppy Party that August. A great time was had by all! We had 7 of the eight puppy families attend and we discussed making it an annual event.

Then, we lost two years.

But now–
Our Puppy Reunion 2022 was this past Saturday at a great (private but rentable) location that one of our Puppy Moms discovered. Again, we had 7 of our eight original litter! Plus their mom & dad and a bonus 3 siblings. For those of you into details, that’s TWELVE dogs! And a couple of horses, which interestingly enough, the dogs were oblivious to.

It was very interesting to catch up and swap notes on treats, toys, and tricks. The runt of our litter, by a very noticeable amount, is no longer the little one. It was fun assessing who looks like mom or dad, who inherited which disposition, and a little bit o’ bragging on how smart they each are. So smart.

I will admit, I was having some anticipatory anxiety about the experience. The farmland was new to us, it’s been three years since our last gathering, and socializing is just different now. I kinda think everyone was afraid their dog would be the naughty dog, but you know what? We were all wrong. We have GREAT dogs! There was an inevitable scuffle or two, but overall the corgi crowd was amazing.

Thank you to all of our JaM Corgi Crew Families for making this reunion happen. We weren’t able to get a group shot this time, but I look forward to trying again next year.

And again and again. Even after we eventually, inevitably, get one.

Maybe after a couple of hours of fresh air and fun play, the dogs will reenact this photo, lol.

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

    Oh so cute! If I ever get another dog it will be a corgi. I love those down-to-the-ground dogs, having had three bassets.
