Friends' Pet Gallery

This is a picture of our Corgi, Chloe.

Kathleen says "She is an absolute sweetheart. She is 12 years old and her birthday is February 12th! Chloe loves going for rides in the truck and swimming in the ocean! Chloe is loved by everyone who meets her! Here she is sitting in the yard while I am in the garden! The whole family fell in love with Corgis after reading Tasha's books and watching her very first video on a VHS!"

This is Grace,

a Dudley Labrador Retriever.  Fran says "She wandered into my life at our Duncan, OK ranch eight years ago.  Though we live part time in Oklahoma City, she is most happy running free in the wild woods.  In fact her favorite thing to do is run at top speed.  She is very bright and friendly…and beautiful as you can see.  We often ask her who does her makeup…taupe eyeliner, nose and lips; white lashes; velvet ears.  But Grace has yet to share her beauty secrets, choosing instead to remain a mysterious lady.   My now grown children’s favorite books were by Tasha.  As for me, I own many of her beautiful life style books.  Thank you for keeping her grace and style alive."

Giotto,

is a 17-year old African Grey who, according to his person Steve, is sick and tired of seeing only corgis and cats on the web site--he asked that I forward his latest picture along. He has a vocabulary of hundreds of words, phrases, songs and noises--not all of which would meet with Tasha’s approval, but she would love his loon imitation!  He would also love to see that red table cloth on his caretaker’s dining room table (that would be me)!  He sends holiday greetings to Hannah and Captain Pegler, who I understand have gone on to loving new homes.

Debbi says

"I wanted to share a photo of my sweet Henri with you...he is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi that I adopted from the pound 3 years ago!" 

Darby

lives with Shannon who says "I discovered Ms. Tudor this year looking up corgi stuff. I wish I had learned about her sooner! Her art is like comfort food for the eyes. I look forward to learning more about her.

Attached are a few pictures of my pembroke, Darby O'Gill.

He and I are inseparable. There are no words to the joy he brings me. His favorite things to do are to say "hi" to everyone and everything. It's a blessing to see the smiles he brings out of people. He is also a master of keep-a-way and loves diving under blankets to play hide and seek.  I get the magic Ms. Tudor felt for her corgis. It smiles at me everyday :)

Thank you for continuing to share Tasha Tudor to the world.

Hannah, Cooper and Monte,

live with Ben who says

"Hannah the female fur kid in the dress just passed away,

 

Cooper, 7 years old (still acts like a puppy)


Monte in the superdog outfit is 12 years old


Leo,

a 1 year old fluffy, lives with Lisa who says "We had 2 beautiful females who we had to put to sleep last spring. We waited  for the next "perfect" dog and we got Leo. People tell me us is the most beautiful dog they have ever seen. I tell them he is the devil! He is 100% pure Corgi Puppy and I love every challenging moment of his adolescence.  We would be honored to have you include his picture on your friends page.

Magnum,

lives with Dawn who says " There are currently 5 Cardigan Welsh Corgis in residence at my house.  Here are a couple of pictures of Magnum, who has never met a camera he wouldn't ham it up for. I love Corgis.  And fish.  Corgi hair in my fish tanks, not so much."

Koda and Tate,

live near Tampa, Florida with their humans Walt and Cookie who says "We've been privileged to have owned 5 corgis. Here are our latest two rescues...Koda, a redheaded tri and Tate, a black-headed tri"

Lulu and Flynn,

live with Claire who says "I grew up reading Tasha Tudor's children books with my mom. She also had the book "Drawn From New England" and I loved to look through it. It was my first introduction to Corgis and I fell in love. While I grew up with Labs and mutt dogs, I knew someday I would get a Corgi....well not only did I get one, but now we have 2. LuLu is a red Pembroke and is 10 months old and Flynn is a tricolor Pembroke and is 6 months. This photo was taken when we first got Flynn and these two have been loving sisters ever since.  Tasha and her family's love for Corgis truly introduced me to the best dogs I've ever owned."

Tasha's

name was preeminent in the choice of our cuddly and remarkable adopted greyhound's new name.   Natasha is also a charming fictional Russian princess in our favorite novel, War and Peace.   Natasha leaps over a backyard raised garden bed with such ease, and the gorgeous profile of the Greyhound bus logo!  :)   She is a former racing greyhound with no signs of retiring from running!  But she will be drawn and painted prolifically in her long beauty naps while draped on the couch! 

Scotty and Zuzu,

live with Wanda who says " I am sending pictures of my kitties Scotty and Zuzu. Scotty is posing on a white wicker chair in an area in my yard that people call the secret garden. We live in Clinton Iowa right near the Mississippi River. "

Dottie,

lived with Nancy who says "I was raised on Tasha Tudor books and have Dozer (7 years) and had dear Dottie (who passed away at 14 years, left). Dotts was a Cardigan Welsh Corgi and a retired AKC champ in the ring who enjoyed sunning herself on the deck, chewing on bones and watermelon and gentle snuggles as I would put my shoes on each morning. I still miss her gentle spirit. She was both blind and deaf when this image was taken but she still knew how to work the camera."

The Kuzma Family,

sends this photo and says "This is our Corgi Cassie. She runs our home in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. "

Timmy and Scooter,

live in Vermont with Tamar who says "as Tasha always said, there is nothing like a Corgi, and once you own one, you understand that the saying is so true!  Timmy turned 4 in March of this year 2011 and Scooter will be 3 in October. 

" Timmy and Scooter have another Corgi Brother named Jake who is six and he is in the other picture. All three boys love to spend time with their humans; and Jake especially takes his job very serious in regards to 'Barn Manager'; he loves to heard the animals we have on our small hobby farm, goats, mini horses, Alpaca’s and Big Horses. "

Caroline,

Chickadee,

lives with Heather who says "Here is a photo of my Chickadee. She is thirteen years old, but I have only had the pleasure of knowing her for the last two years. She is such a gentle and nature-loving little dog; calm and appreciative of all the changes of the seasons. She lives with me in St. Petersburg, Florida, where we enjoy the spray of the gulf as much as a ramble in the woods."

JPTucker, Atticus Finch and Beedle the Bard

live with Donna who says " Wanted you to see my furbies: Atticus Finch Pembroke, my rescued love.  He is about six the vet thinks.  He has been a marvelous addition to our family.  J. P.

Rudolf and Edward

live in Estonia with Epp Maria and Jaak who say "We live in old renovated farmhouse and the family is very happy about these two boys who this year will be two years age. Rudolf enjoys our winters with deep snow , but Edward has to put on his winter coat to go out for a walk on the Baltic seaside. They get along marvelously , but small Ruudi (Rudolf ) is the boss of course. I admire the works of Tasha Tudor and am happy to received recently the book about her garden, that is most inspiring."

Eloise and Becky

live in Jamestown, RI with Marjorie who says "I knew one day we would have a Corgi. I was brought up on all of Tasha Tudor's books and loved the animals she painted best of all. Becky was from a litter all named for Tasha Tudor characters. We also have a Bernese Mountain Dog, Eloise. I wish Tasha had painted some Berners, they go so well with the Corgis and look so good in the snow. "

Brady, Tabitha, Abby and Marmie

live in Norco, California with Nita and Bill who say "Here is our Brady (left) and Tabitha. Along with two other kitties we adopted this year, including Abby, a feral Siamese kitten and Marmie (Dearest), the Mom of the first two. We meant to adopt one kitty and ended up with four. Oh well, they all get along pretty well.  I loved Tasha Tudor, her drawing, sentiments and creativity."

These six very loving, rescued children,

live in southern Maine with Liz who says "Our human son is all grown up, so our furry kids now fill our daily lives. All of our dogs do agility and a few attend regular competitions. We feel our lives are improved by having so many loving pets around us. Yes, it takes great responsibility, but we never have a humorless day with so many varied doggy antics taking place."

Bridget MacDagtha

passed away last October two days after she turned nine.  She is the one looking up with snowflakes coming down.  As all dog owners would say, they are the most wonderful dogs in the whole wide world.

"Ana Bridie Rosa, Bridget’s little sweetie pie, a 8 month old girl puppy who was “sent” to me a week and a day after Bridget died.  She is named Bridie is another name for Bridget in Celtic tradition."

"The names come from Celtic mythology. The Macdagthas were the mythical gods of everything good.  Bridget was a triple goddess in Celtic mythology, later taken as a name in the Christian tradition. Bridget is the goddess of the hearth and warmth and many other things. This Bernese Mountain dog seems to love to sit, lean, cuddle, and generally be sure to be loving all the time they are not playing in the snow. Bridie has gone to work with me every day. I work as a psychologist and she has an uncanny way of being ever so thoughtful to people when they come to meet with me."

She lives in Topeka, Kansas with Carol who says "Improved Jupiter is named after an old mandolin we have displayed in our home. The mandolin label clearly states it is an 'Improved Jupiter' model. The cat is an improved model also. Thus, the name.   Mostly, we call her 'Kittie,' however." 

This is Poogy

an angora goat who lived with Singing Wind who says "I bottle raised her. She has passed on but is never forgotten."

Gus,
a Beagle/Pomeranian mix, lives in Burlington, Vermont with Valerie and George who say "Gus enjoys tagging along for bicycle rides (he even has his own cart  for when he tires of the run ),kayaking, boating  and hunting when the season allows. Gus takes very good care of his family of people and animals which  include cats, chickens as well as ducks. He has many friends in the neighborhood which he likes to visit for play dates as often as possible."

"He is the most attentive and sweet little dog and I thought he deserved to be showcased with other well deserving pets on your web site. I just know others will love to see his darling face. One cannot look at him without wanting to pet and give him a smile. I enjoy the emails I receive, the web site as well as the art work
and stories of Tasha Tudor. Thank you for sharing with the public and for allowing the public to share with you. Looking forward to the museum as we enjoyed the exhibit at Shelburne  Museum very much."
