Update: Got to see the little Boomer over Thanksgiving weekend. What a joy he is and handsome! He and fellow Corgi Connection brother, Hendrix are best play buddies.
Dodger, now Boomer went in to foster and after just 2 weeks is staying - furrever! Erin and Nick along with their first rescue Corgi, Hendrix are adopting Boomer as their own.
"He just fits," they said of the young Corgi.
The boys are doing great. Both are completely kennel trained, have their own fenced in backyard and they constantly fight like brothers. Also Boomer loves to irritate Sally (our cat).
We have also enjoyed watching Boomer grow up from a small puppy and become the great "talker" he has become. He is now quite the chatterbox and every chance he gets he is trying to talk to us or Hendrix. All and all we have been very happy with the transition from one to two dogs. Having two dogs has been a lot of fun. We look forward to getting together again with you this summer to show them off to everybody.
This little guy was picked up as a stray in Western Kansas and is now with Corgi Connection. His foster family just loves him and he does will with their corgi, Hendrix.
The top photo was taken at the shelter from where Boomer came and the bottom photo is Boomer at HOME - his furr-ever home! (Looks like he might be channel surfing!)
Thanks Nick and Erin for opening your home and hearts to this handsome boy!

Raider - Recovered and making himself at home
UPDATE: Raider went to his new home Nov. 5 but not before making a final impression on The Daily Corgi where he won the Halloween costume contest. Thank you Jim, Paula and Thumper for welcoming Raider into your home.
Here's Raider's first report from his new family: What a great dog. He is fitting in very well. We give Thumper dental treats and Raider has discovered the container they are kept in so now he comes up to the container and does his little sitting on his hind legs and begging routine to get one. He sleeps very well in bed and has been for a walk around the new neighborhood.
We have gone off and left both he and Thumper with the run of the house for several hours at a time and no problems. He is still getting use to the fenced back yard and the neighbor hood dogs barking but he does has a voice.
I will keep sending you updates and thanks again, he is what were looking for.
Raider had surgery Sept. 24 and the leg wrap was removed Oct. 1. All indications are the lump was a lipoma, which is a fatty tumor. It was rather involved with the structure of his leg, but the veterinarian believed he was able to remove the entire tumor. The mass was sent off for testing at Kansas State University and came back as a fatty tumor.
Corgi Connection was contacted by a couple a few months ago about their 8-year old Pembroke male corgi, Raider. Seems Raider has taken a disliking to their 3 year old son and they fear for the child's safety AND Raider's happiness.
Raider had a lump appear on his leg a while back and the couple had the lump removed. It has grown back and about this time I was contacted about trying to find a new home for the dog after the couple got the dog medically treated. She told me the vet said amputation would be the least expensive option and they were going to have it done when they had enough money saved up and then try to find him a new home. I asked the woman if she would put that off and consider sending me Raider's medical records so that I might get another opinion and see if we could avoid amputating Raider's right hind leg AND get his medical expenses paid for while trying to find him a new home.
