Since the late '80s, I have been involved with training, showing, and breeding Cardigan Welsh Corgis, the Corgi with a tail.

But the most important thing I do with my Cardis is LOVE them!

I began my journey to Cardigans with an Australian Shepherd and Australian Cattle Dog ( the latter were Blue Heelers, in those days), but they were not recognized by the AKC.  I wanted to show in obedience, so I ended up acquiring a Lab.  Bubba attained his CD in three trials at the age of 8 months, but I lost him a year later to cancer.  By then I had become close friends with a woman at obedience class who bred Cardigans.  We traveled together throughout the Southwest and I learned all about Cardis--and fell hard.  I took a blue boy from her in 1989.  I was only going to have the one . . . well, Cardis are like potato chips: You can't have just one! 

 

Pilot and I were a good match, and he went on to win his CD in obedience, his conformation championship, become a multiple Group placer, and won Best of Breed at the Southern California Specialty in 1993.  With him as my foundation, and his daughter as my first bitch, I went on to establish my own kennel and line, using the Cheysuli prefix because of my first fantasy series, the Chronicles of the Cheysuli.  

In the obedience, agility, and conformation rings, Cardigans of my breeding have excelled.  But they first and foremost excel as companions!  While showing and breeding is my priority, I chiefly live with my kids as pets first, and temperament and good health is paramount.  While sending off puppies to new homes is difficult, I know they will be outstanding family companions for the rest of their lives.  And Cardis, luckily, have a long lifespan; most live to the ages of 14-16 years, and a few as long as 18.

I have been a member of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America since 1989, and have served  as  a member-at-large of the Board of Directors, 1st Vice President, chair of Breeders' Education, editor for the Cardigan column in the AKC Gazette, and as a CWCCA Breed Mentor.  I have judged Sweepstakes at several regional specialties, and was selected to judge Sweeps at the 2015 National but had to cancel immediately before because of  an unexpected and  serious family matter.  I hope one day to be able to judge the puppies and the veterans at our breed's showcase.

On the following pages you will be able to learn about the breed, and in the Gallery you will  meet a fair

number of my Cardigans.  I am always available to "talk dogs" with interested people, even if I have no

pups available.  This section of the website is under construction, and I will continue to add photos over time.
