Northwest Cardigan Fanciers – CANCELLED

September 25

News from Richland Kennel Club:

Richland Kennel Club and the Walla Walla Kennel Club have worked hard to pull together the Tri Cities Cluster, but we have come to the decision that we must cancel our show for September 2020. With the current status of COVID restrictons in our county, we do not see how we can hold the show.

We are sorry for all of our exhibitors that planned to attend. We will be refunding any parking money already paid, less any fees that were charged.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2021.

Stacey Davis Show Chair

Bill Murray, President,

With the cancellation of the all-breed clubs, the Northwest Cardigan Fanciers members had a decision to make: whether or not to hold an independent specialty, and if so: where?

A meeting of the NWCF Board was held on Wednesday, July 29th, at which time the decision was made to cancel the specialty.

The CWCCA is the parent club for the Cardigan Welsh Corgi breed and is a member of the American Kennel Club.

 

The Cardigan Welsh Corgi is one of the oldest known breeds. They are believed to have been in existence in Wales for over 3,000 years, and were first imported to the United States in 1932. Cardigans make a delightful companion as well as a working farm, show, or performance dog. We hope that you enjoy this site as you learn about our breed.

BLUE MERLE: CARDIGAN YES, PEMBROKE NO…


While the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear similar, they are in fact two distinct breeds that developed separately centuries ago in geographically distinct areas of Wales. They are part of the cultural heritage of Wales and each breed deserves to be preserved and protected like any cultural treasure.

One of the many breed characteristics that distinguish Cardigans from Pembrokes is color. Cardigans come in more colors including blue merle and brindle which have never occurred in purebred Pembrokes. Since canine geneticists have proven that both of these traits are dominant, it is virtually impossible for either color to suddenly appear in a litter of Pembrokes. Blue merle or brindle Pembrokes are a result of crossbreeding which is not condoned by the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America or their members. These puppies are not purebred, are not eligible to be registered in the AKC Stud Book and cannot compete in AKC Conformation or Herding events.
