I picked up my new Pembroke Welsh Corgi from Kathy Fortin in MO. My boyfriend and I were originally going to drive down there (would be close to 21 hours round trip) because I wanted to meet her in person as well as the puppy's parents and see the kennel, etc. but I decided to have her shipped to Omaha, NE instead which ended up being about 5 hours round trip instead. She was really anxious to get out of the crate when I picked her up, my mom drove home and she was cuddled up to my neck almost the whole trip and she ate a little on the drive as well. I wanted to wait but she was so hungry. Anyway, here is a picture. My phone usually takes good ones but it decided it didn't want to that night. I'll take some nice ones when the new battery charger comes for my camera (Shippo decided I didn't need the other one).
Pay no attention to the stuffing all over the floor, Shippo had just disemboweled a stuffy lol I am going to be showing her in conformation and hopefully other things as well. Shippo I'm still on the fence about but it's quite possible he's going to be neutered. Anyway, I'm having trouble coming up with a name. I wanted to stick with the Inuyasha theme (anime/manga where Shippo's name comes from) but none of the girl names really strike me, though for a long time I was planning on naming my female Sango. Not sure I want to now so I'm considering other options. I thought about a dragon name since it's the year of the dragon but I can't find any decent dragon names so maybe a Welsh name or even a faery name (there is a story that was made up as to the PWC's origins that they were used as faery steeds).
She is both a bit sassy but also sweet. She reminds me a little of Chansey, the Corgi I lost last year. Her name comes from Pokemon but I don't think there are anymore Pokemon names I can use, I think Evee is used far too often.
