Wiley is on the left, and we got her through a free ad a few years ago. We got Rupert from the local pound when he was less than a year old. Someone had dropped him off, or rather pushed him under the fence and driven away. We have had 5 corgis so far, and he looks as pure bred as any of them, so it's hard to imagine someone paying that much for a dog and then abandoning him.
He gets upset when we have too many boxes around the house or when we pack to go somewhere, so I think his family was moving and/or in divorce. He's a great dog. They both are, but Rupert is my special buddha dog. I bring them to work with me most days, and they laze about while we work.
I am attempting to knit a corgi, through the inspiratation of seeing the Florian Fox pattern in Lucinda Guy's And So to Bed book and a new color of Peace Fleece. Here is the side section, for your viewing pleasure. I moved the color pattern around and added a head shape at the top. I'm hoping it will look seriously cute when it's all made up.
