Club members lost in the last year.1

In Memorium


Robert Embrey


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.

Our deepest sympathies to Chris.



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 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.
