Club members lost in 2019.
Robert (Bob) Embrey passed away on Friday Nov. 1 after a short but very aggressive illness. Bob and Carolyn have had Cardigans and been club members for about 25+ years. Most people did not know Bob. While Carolyn was active in Cardigans and the CWCCA in limited ways (she did a lot of tracking in the early years. She now has Rhys and Claire, both grand champions, plus Claire's 9 week old litter), Bob was always on the sidelines encouraging Carolyn in all she pursued. Bob would drive to specialties and other shows and keep himself busy, when he wasn't tending to their dogs, by train watching. He was an avid train watcher and model railroad enthusiast.
Bob had a delightful sense of humor. He loved baseball, especially his Washington Nationals. He loved people and was one of the kindest men I knew. He was equally as caring to any visiting Cardigan as he was to his own. Rest in peace, Bob.

It with regret that we announce that long-time member Helen Turin has passed away at the age of 88. Helen was a true Cardigan person, and she won Best Puppy at the 1998 Specialty and an AOM at the 1999 Specialty, both of these were owner-handled wins. We send our condolences to her family.
The Board of the CWCCA sends its condolences to Barb Peterson and her family on the death of her Husband, Steve. Steve was a long time member of the Club who loved his Cardigans and the Breed. He was always fun to be around and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
The Cardigan Community mourns the passing of one of our long-time members, Robert Caldwell. Bob's passion in life was the Cardigan Welsh Corgi breed and Kennebec Kennels. Bob was the first recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award given by the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America. The Cardigan Welsh Corgi would not be what it is today had it not been for Bob’s commitment to the breed's continued improvement and recognition in the dog world.
