We contacted the breeder, Julene and enquired into the possiblity of purchasing one of her puppies, that had been born late 2006 and would be available for purchase early 2007. To our disappointment all of the pups had been spoken for. The sooner we got a Corgi pup the better, so we searched with other breeders, but none were willing to sell us a Show qaulity female, in particular a Blue Merle because the colour was one of much value and prized among breeders.
Mid 2009 my mother received a call from Julene at Mandene Corgi's, that a litter of 13 healthy puppies had been delivered earlier that week and we had first preference for a pup as we had been on the waiting list for nearly two years. Julene sent us photos of all the puppies, three blue merle girls, 3 blue merle boys, 3 black and white (One with brindle points) boys and 4 black and white girls.
We really were interested in buying a Blue Merle female, and there were three to choose from. Our little angel, 'Mab' was the pup we choose. One of the larger of the puppies, she was the palest and had the most grey in her coat. Her face was pure white and so small!
Here are some photos...
