Corgi Afternoon 2002

May 16, 2002

The days leading up to it were rainy and cold ... but the weather cleared for a sunny, warm and beautiful afternoon! Over 30 dogs from near and as far away as Ferndale (100 miles). A good time was had by all!

Each new arrival received a progressively larger escort:

On the deck, on the ground, in the pens ... Corgis everywhere!

How many Corgwn do can you count?

Thanks to Sharon & Norm Olsen for some additional pictures.
