    Hi, I'm new here. From Michigan. I have a working-line German Shepherd Dog, imported from Belgium, almost 11 months old, named Kastle. I have a failed conformation prospect Cardigan Welsh Corgi, almost 2 years old, named Eden. I am getting a sport mix at the end of Summer/beginning of Fall. I haven't decided on his name yet (but have a whole list of possibilities). I compete/trial/train in IPO, agility, flyball, rally, obedience, dock jumping, lure coursing, and also train for trick dog titles.

    Kastle:

    I'm also an avid blogger and if you click on their names in my signature, you can see loads more photos and videos of the type of training that I do with my dogs. I'm excited to be here! :)

    Another crazy, drivey Cardi, omg! I'm so excited you're here! I have a crazy Cardigan bitch myself. I'm already in love with Eden - and she's so trim and muscular. What a gorgeous girl!

    Hi there! I spent time with Kastle's breeder in Belgium this past summer, what a great guy! I just sent someone in my club to him for their next puppy, can't wait to see.

    Kastle and Eden are both adorable, hope to see much more of them.

    Kastle is GORGEOUS! What a handsome guy. Eden is a stunning Cardi too! I'm just a bit biased towards GSDs though lol.

    Thanks for the welcomes!!

    Hi Faisal :)

    Eden is just a regular little Cardigan that comes from a show breeder. She was fat, lazy, shy and quiet when I got her. Now she's crazy LOL She runs the household (we have an additional Corgi (her half-sister), a GSD (Kastle's half-brother) and a Border Collie in addition to my own dogs). I used to frequent the Corgi forums but not many people do sports with theirs so I'm really excited to see other Cardi fans - I want to see pictures!!

    Rinus is awesome! I will forever be going to him for my GSDs. :)

    Yeah, Kastle is a long coat - to my distress when I saw his adult coat coming in! LOL He has his first SV conformation show this weekend to see how he stacks up. I think his missing teeth issue will be annoying but hopefully not too bad!

    Right? My girl is only 10 mo but she's crazy crazy, loves her toys and loves to work. We're prepping for OB, Rally, and agility. I'm so excited there's another sporty Cardigan on here now. :)

    Yeah he is. He went out of his way to help the USA MALINOIS team at the world championships. Seriously out of his way, took a whole day to escort us to a stadium he had access to to train. And it wasn't even his breed of choice. There is not much I would not do for him.

    What happened to his teeth? I saw the pics on FB, but I don't think I'm your friend so I could not actually find the story. Now I can ask! :)
