Today the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America awarded Chase his Register of Merit-Versatility-Gold. That means he has a least twenty progeny that have earned AKC titles in Conformation, Herding, and Companion events, and that they compiled at least 50 different titles among them. On October 17th, Chase will turn 10 years old — this is a pretty darned special birthday present for our boy. He is now GCH DC CAN CH C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness CD RN HXAsM OAP AJP MVCX ROM-V-G. 😀

We are expecting puppies from MHIT GCH DC CAN CH C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness CD RN HSAsM OAP AJP MVCX ROM-Versatility-Gold* and CH Elyan Bluefox Nothing But Flowers CGC. The pedigree is here. Chase is OFA Good, Elbows Normal, PRA, DM, Pink clear. Heart and Thyroid Normal. Tuli is PennHipped in the 85th percentile. She is DM, PRA, and Pink clear. Both Chase and Tuli carry fluff — so, yes, we should have a couple of fluffy puppies. The litter is due on November 5th. This pedigree is very similar to that of the breeding that produced “The Clutter.” Chase was the dad, and Tuli is a 3/4 sister to CH Flutter. I am very excited to have more cute, talented puppies. So, stay tuned.

* Pending AKC confirmation of the 20th progeny’s titles, and approval by CWCCA.

Yesterday we held the Clutter’s Puppy Party. Thank you to Ellen Gerwin who helped us evaluate the babies. Thanks also to the puppy holding club which got together one more time for this litter. Jean and Ella held a clear spoon of Cheez Whiz to keep attention.
Three of the kids went to their new homes yesterday. Gray Girl (may be Penny) went to Pennsylvania with Karen Yohe, Red Girl (Summer) also went to Pennsylvania with Pam Smith. Our Itty went to Santa Fe with Rich Arimoto. Black collar boy (Oisin) will be leaving Wednesday with Sheri O’Brien. Sheri will kindly deliver yellow collar girl (Poppy) to Melinda Hanlon who lives in Elizabeth. On July 11th, Ailene Chow will fly in from San Diego to carry the fluffy boy who will be known as Rain to his new home. Blue girl and I will hang out together until the right (active home) comes along for her.
Gray Collar Girl – Penny
Purple Collar Girl – Itty
Black Collar Boy – Oisin
Fluffy (green Collar) Boy – Rain
Blue Collar Girl
Yellow Collar Girl – Poppy
I hope these Chase/Flutter puppies bring as much happiness to their new owners as they have brought to us here at the home of the Baddogs.

The Clutter is now 6-1/2 weeks old. They are happy, healthy, roly-poly Cardi babies. Last week we took advantage of our friendship with Kevin Dooley (Kevin’s Photography) and did a photo shoot. The puppies are very photogenic. They’ve had many visitors — which they loved. This week they will be temperament tested, microchipped, and have their first puppy inoculations. On the afternoon of July 1st, we’ll hold the Puppy Party and evaluate them for show and performance and companion homes. I have available one fluffy brindle boy and 1 pretty brindle girl. If you have interest in either, please complete a Puppy Application (link at the top of the blog). Meanwhile, enjoy these wonderful photos of the cute babies.

It’s certainly taken me long enough! And I am still working on the puppy cam. It’s up and working, but I must contact potential viewers individually and let them know how to access the camera. We can no longer go through this blog to watch the puppies. The good news is that the new camera has excellent definition.
So, here is The Clutter Litter at 3-1/2 weeks. These are only head shots because I was holding them and taking the photos. We should get some stacked photos this weekend as well. The puppies are on their third set of collars — they’ve outgrown the first two. Everyone (except Itty) is hovering at 2 pounds; she is just over 1 pound. We have barking and puppy wrestling. They are happily eating two meals a day of goat milk and yoghurt and ground raw turkey. Mom Flutter takes care of the rest of the meals. Flutter is in great shape, keeps the Clutter clean. I get nothing done here because they need me to stare at them and hold them and play with them. I truly love puppies!
The theme for this litter is Joni Mitchell songs — I am a 60’s woman!
