Tribute to CH Coedwig's Carbon Blue ROMg

April 24, 1995 - April 17, 2010
A grand dog has passed among us and lives with us in so many of our Cardigans. My current litter has a lot of this great dog in them. I am so indebted to Kim Shira for his legacy of breed type and temperament in my beginnings as a breeder.

Almost 5 weeks old. I have had a crazy week on top of the puppies becoming much more active and learning games like "Where's the Potty" and "How Hard Can I Bite My Brother Before He Squeals Like a Pig." Also time to start introducing them to what happens on a table. It's too soon to tell which ones are destined for the show life so they all get a chance at this. As you can see they were less than thrilled.

Special thanks to my daughters, Chloë and Lexie, for helping!!

Karma* - she was the good puppy especially for the first time on the table!
