Crumpet
It is hard to start out with a dog like this one. Rarely do dog and human pick each other at the same moment, but we did. Always within four feet and ready to do anything I could come up with, Crumpet went on to outperform himself.

While he was being shown for his AKC Championship, we were attending our first Agility classes. His attitude caught Judges’ attention and he finished his Championship quickly and with a Herding Group 2 placement.

Once finished with the Breed ring, weekends were open to trial in Agility. It was obvious from the start Crumpet loved this sport and threw his heart into running. Over his career he qualified for USDAA Steeplechase and DAM Team, was AKC National Ranked, and qualified on International Courses at 16”.

Training sometimes intertwines other interests and I found myself working more obedience for control on courses. On a whim, Crumpet was trained up through Utility Dog, but we never trialed beyond Companion Dog (Novice Obedience). Swirled with Agility and Obedience was Herding classes and instinct testing, but we never entered any trials.

When Crumpet retired due to an injury, he had amassed a number of titles in different dog sports which included the PWCCA’s Versatile Corgi Award. I was very fortunate to have the first time experience with this dog, as his personality was game for learning something new and doing something different. A lot of my training experience comes from Crumpet’s honesty while transferring from one sport to another and that kind of relationship cannot be reproduced.

Unfortunately, time caught up with us and Crumpet left us at the age of Twelve years. It really is hard to lose a relationship like I had with him, but I like to think Little Dude is remembered every time I walk into another ring with a different dog.

Sprout
One of the prettiest fluffy Corgis you will ever have met, Sprout was remembered by anyone who stopped to pet her. She arrived when she was five years old, coming to stay for the weekend and never went home. Mike and I did not mind, as she really seemed to belong with us.

I did work her in Agility, but not with the same zest I did for Crumpet. For a girl Corgi, she threw her heart into running or performing and I am sorry we never seriously competed. With about five hours of Agility training, Sprout managed a NADAC Tunnlers leg and a few awesome runs hindered by being over time by milliseconds. I am still laughing all of these years later because those runs were some of the best I have had. For Obedience she was a willing partner, but as it always goes with time, I had other obligations and we never pursued trialing.

Sprout had her place in the house and performed her fuffy Corgi butt duty of being the welcoming committed to all of our guests. Sometimes this is the most important title to have, earned every day until her sixteenth year. None of my current dogs have proven to be as capable and Sprout is still the reigning champion.
