Rothrock Farm Gazette - Issue 6 is buzzing with news from Hurley, Ruxin, Buster, and K'i'a'i! New pictures from Nip in Dallas! Scroll down (past our wonderful corgis) to catch up with latest news!
Meet our Corgis
Our farm, located in the Piney Woods of East Texas, is home to cows, goats, rabbits, cats, bluebirds, hummingbirds, chickens, various woodland creatures, an aging Golden Retriever, AND a whole herd of the most amazing corgis!
We were first introduced to Pembroke Welsh Corgis several years ago by an East Texas friend and breeder. I fell in love with Wenna when she wiggled up into my hands at just three days old! Later, we added Murphy and Annie (now retired to California, living the good life with Alberta) and began the tentative plan to breed Prembrokes. What fun it has been to add Copper, Cocoa, Collin, Cerah, Cari, CJ, Callie, Caddy, and Kora over the years. Robert and Candace Turney joined our breeding program a few years ago, and each of our litters is eagerly anticipated, joyfully welcomed, and loved to pieces! The Rothrock's and Turney's co-own several dogs, and we are working to preserve and improve genetics--conformation, temperament, and health--in our "herd."

Amy writes from Dallas that Nip is the smartest dogs they've ever had and has found a sweet place in the family. Youngest, Hayes, seems to provide all the snacks Nip needs, and Amy reports that she takes her "high chair" cleanup duty VERY seriously. Note picture on the left is Nip at 8 weeks, center Nip at 8 months (in front of same bench), then Hayes looking surprised at Nip's interest in her morsels -- sure! That little girl has already figured out what to do with those carrots!
Lauren, is making preparations for Sully at home in Houston. She's made a blanket, painted a toy box and filled it with treats Sully will LOVE, and....drum roll....has a new shirt just waiting for him! Note the cool leash hook and treat station already hanging in Sully's corner of the house!!! Lauren's preparation in pictures is worth the thousand words on the "Bringing Puppy Home" page! Lauren says she's READY! See more pictures of Sully and his littermates whelped 10/8/14 on the "New Arrivals" page.
Jessica, our favorite vet in Louisiana, writes that Ruxin Fluffy Buns a/k/a Ruxin is "spoiled rotten." Ruxin loves her big brother Colton, but pesters step-sister Simone the Papillon! Jessica loves her coloring (like her sire Murphy). Colton, Simone, and Ruxin (and of course Mom and Dad) will soon welcome a new little brother into the family! Congratulations to the Duncan's! What a sweet holiday season they will have with their two human boys and their two four-legged girls!
Cole writes from College Station that Hurley has seen her through a rough few months, and now both are READY for the holidays. While Hurley is not too sure about the creative jack-o-lanterns on Cole's porch, he seem right a home with pumpkins and a dip in the lake! He has mastered basic obedience commands including "howdy" (paw-shake Aggie style, and "kiss" (he touches his nose to Cole's nose). He's still working on "come" and "wait" (definitely a corgi guy!!!). Cole says, "His absolute favorite thing...is his pheasant toy. I tied a toy pheasant to the end of a horse lunge whip and swing it around while he chases it all over the backyard. He tries to herd it!...hilarious!...He is such a blessing, and God definitely sent him to me at the perfect time!"
Cynthia and Tamara send news of Buster and K'i'a'i all the way from Washington state. These two are littermates from Copper and Murphy's litter in April, 2011. What gorgeous boys they are. You can see pup pictures in the banner at the top of each website page -- they are the ones with mud on their noses! Clean up "real good," huh? Buster is the handsome tri on the left, and K'i'a'i is the red dude on the right.

|Darlin Does Red River!|
Todd's have just returned from Red River, New Mexico,
where they vacationed with family, celebrated their 1st
wedding anniversary, and introduced Darlin to the
mountains and rocky mountain streams.
Emily writes, "I wanted to send out this picture of Gibbs with his new baby brother, Burt! We brought him home almost two weeks ago, and he and Gibbls love wrestling and playing tug of war. They get along so well and are precious together...I've seen pictures of recent litters [on website] and they're completely precious!
Lindsay writes, "....I wanted to send you some updated pictures of beautiful Thor! We have been told by tons and tons of friends to get him puppy glamor shots; he truly is a beautiful dog! For now he is my personal model. We just love him to pieces!..."

Zippy Kellirose, Super Corgi Saves the Day--AGAIN!
A few years ago Zippy saved her family in Houston from a fire in their backyard by raising a Texas-size ruckus at the backdoor--alerting Gilbert and Shay to the danger outside. Now, once again, Zippy moves into action to alert and protect way more than the backyard,this time her master, Gilbert!
Gil writes: "Well, our sweet corgi Zippy has saved the day again. I was home getting ready for an appointment with Zippy at my side. I thought I heard our neighbor's car door shut (I was in bedroom on their driveway side), and, within 5 to 7 seconds Zippy started barking and ran to our den. Noticing that she was barking strangely...and as she continued to bark for another minute or two, I left the bedroom to see what she was barking at. I discovered that she was barking at two strangers (one armed with a 12” combat knife and the other with a pry bar) in my back yard, trying to break into our home!! Needless to say, I drove them off; however, without Zippy our beloved Corgi, it could have been a different story if they had caught me off-guard in the bedroom! She is very brave and nothing short of a Super Corgi! God bless her!
The two juveniles were caught by the police, but, unfortunately, had discarded their weapons before they were caught. Only trespassing could be charged against them."
Kyle and Caitlin write, "Just wanted to let you know that Elsa went to the vet today! They said she looks great and is one special dog! She got her second round of shots! We have enjoyed every single moment with her since we picked her up! She loves to run and play then just plop down on the floor and pass out! We are furthering her training in sit and come.. It is coming along great! Sometimes we don't even have to ask her to sit and she will!...We will keep you updated and stay in touch! Thank you so much for everything!
Cole writes, "Oh
my goodness! Hurley is the absolute best dog in the world!
He is so sweet and gentle! Chandler loves him too! We keep
expecting him to be a puppy and do something wrong or bit
and cry and pee everywhere, but he has been absolutely
has been great on the leash...Chandler
told me I bought the Jesus dog because he knew no sin! (And
because he likes to play in his water bowl--so he walks on
water!) I am the absolute happiest person in the whole
world!!!! Thank you so much!!!! Also, here is a web link to
the Hurley updates! There are pictures and stories from the
past few days and I will keep updating this link as he gets

Christin writes, "Albus is doing great. He had his vet visit today. The vet said he is perfectly healthy. She [the Vet] also said that the puppy packet you sent was the most comprehensive info packet she's ever seen from a breeder. She was really impressed. Thanks so much! I'm attaching some pictures of Albus hanging out in the sunroom and backyard..."
Katheryn writes, "Hey Rothrock family! Just checking in at the four month mark! Ruby has been more than a blessing to us.. I love her sooo much! But about some funny adventures... Ruby has had her first dip in the pool that she wasn't too fond of but LOVED the cool water! ...She helped me pack my bag for my graduation trip to New York! :) and last but not least, she got to meet my cousins from Austin who just petted her until she fell asleep, held her for an hour, and dressed her up in a hula girl costume! We hope that you guys are having a WONDERFUL summer! We would love to come visit soon before I leave in August!
Wyatt is in Louisiana with firefighters and farmers Kim and Wade.
Megan writes that she and the rest of the Benanti's agree that Balthazzar is the most gorgeous corgi, very sweet, full of "puppy-ness" mischief, and smart as a whip! I hear the cute "heart" tush is all gone now that Balty is a big boy!
Howard and Betty write, "...Lulu...is doing great and finished her puppy obedience class a few weeks ago. Sorry, they didn't have a [graduation] cap for them...Lulu has a very outgoing personality and gets along very well with people...We introduced her to the pool and she is now quite the water dog. Fortunately it burns off some of energy. She has some funny dietary habits. She loves grass, flowers, rocks, and sticks outside. Inside, she likes lettuce, celery, radishes, and carrots. Her regular food she will only eat at night. She is a great companion for us and is getting along with Atticus (our grandson) better each visit.
Nip has settled in nicely and the Beale family in Dallas. She's well-loved by kiddos Meg, Hayes, and John!
Ruxin loves the Louisiana life with Mom, Jessica, Dad, and big brother Colton -- an aspiring vet--walkin in Jessica's footsteps!
