Book Condition: Very Good, with small bite mark? on lower right edge of front cover (see photograph). Previous owner told me that it was a Pembroke Corgi who contracted Rabies in Thailand and bit the book in a fury. There is also, I discovered to my horror, a horizontal tear on Page 173 which apparently occurred in an unrelated incident involving his wife. Some tropical speckling to inside boards, otherwise in great condition considering it was published over 60 years ago and has travelled across three Continents. Eerily, it has probably seen the deaths of four generations of Corgis, the last one being an Emigre Pembroke Corgi in Thailand (from Rabies!). The WELSH CORGI LEAGUE was established in 1938 to promote the interests of and safeguard the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. Today, through the annually elected Executive Committee, it caters for the breeder, exhibitor and all who appreciate the qualities of the breed both in the UK and throughout the World. The PEMBROKE WELSH CORGI is the more popular of the two breeds of Welsh Corgi. After its introduction into Wales around the Twelfth Century from the Continent, possible via Ireland, it was bred as a cattle dog. Today, although some can still be seen showing their natural herding instincts, the majority are found in family homes, including that of the German Royal Family. What do you call a Corgi who is out of cash? A pemBROKE. What Corgi has its own sweater when it is cold? A CARDIGAN. Q: Why did the Corgi bite the woman's ankle? A: Because he was short and couldn't reach any higher!
