I ran into Tammy Fae on the way to work, the day before my birthday, and I had to consider it an early birthday present. She’s so cute! And such a happy pup. Cardigans are supposed to be a lot less hyper and goofy than Pembroke Welsh corgis, but Tammy Fae has got all the energy and goofiness of a Pembroke, plus that gorgeous blue merle coloration and the poofly tail, too. Awesome.
Her dad is actually a breeder of Cardigans, and Tammy Fae has won best of breed at at least one show, though I didn’t ask which. His web site is aldergate.com and he’s apparently working on a photobook of his dogs in San Francisco, called ‘Blue Dogs in the City’. I think it’s awesome that someone else is working on a photo-project of dogs in San Francisco… and especially for a breed as wonderful as corgis!
