It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

The Hardest Part - Farewell Carbon Blue

As we all know, the hardest part of having a dog is knowing that one day we'll have to say goodbye. Sadly, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi World has lost one of its most amazing creatures, the oh-so-famous Coedwig's Carbon Blue, age almost-15 years.

For many of us he lives on through his progeny who possess his sweet temperament. Denali is a Carbon granddaughter and Sage a grandson. How fortunate I feel to have them both.

See Traci's Tribute to Carbon

Great photo of Carbon with three of his sons, one being Sage's father, Wally!

Some beautiful photos of Carbon from Emily.

(For those not familiar, you'll be amazed at the contributions this dog has made.)

Thank you Carbon - peace be with you always.
You are sorely missed and deeply loved.

Sage is actually a Carbon grandson also - seeing as how Wallifer is Sage's daddy, and Wallifer is a Carbon son.... :) You have 2 Carbon grandkids!! :)

Those "greats" in our breed are starting to pass on - and while it's hard for those of us left behind - our breed is SO MUCH better for having had them... :) Such a shame they can't live as long as we do.
