Rescue -- Mari
AKC registered; 5 years old, purebred Pembroke Welsh Corgi;
tri-color female corgi. Mari was bred on Rothrock Farm (Murphy
and Annie are her sire and dam), and she needs a new home.
Mari is looking for a family that has no other dogs and wants a
sweet, loyal, corgi companion in her prime of life. Contact
Carolyn (text 903 588 6261)
for more information on Mari.
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
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,
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."

|Darlin Does Red
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.
Kadee writes: "Darlin had a great
time in Red River! Garrett and I celebrated our 1
year wedding anniversary...We have enjoyed...her so
much! She loves to run and play in the
water...has...done a super job learning how to walk on a
leash. She is a pro now! She has been adored
and loved on by everyone we meet...made some friends
while in [Red River] including 130 lb Gracie [the dog]!
...When we went up to Goose Lake...she posed so
perfectly! Darlin has been such a good dog for us,
taking every new adventure in stride. She loves to
play but is content when we are busy, and she gets along
with all ages of people and dogs..."

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
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,
discarded their weapons before they were caught. Only trespassing
could be charged against them."
Way to go, Zippy!
Elsa has taken off for San Antonio with Kyle and Caitlin.
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!

Christin and Patrick
are settling in with Albus in Louisiana. Handsome boy!
|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..."
Miss Ruby Rose is livin la dolce vita with recent
grad Katheryn in Henderson. K's note says it all!
Don't miss the hula costume!!
| 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!

is quickly winning hearts in Big D!
Megan wrote 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
