Lyra started her life here at WWC on Aug. 9th, 2010 sired By Ch Larklain Rogers Magic Marker.  At 8 weeks of age the whole litter was evaluated by Pat Hastings at a seminar doing the Puppy Puzzle she is well known for. Lyra was Pat Hastings #1 pick of being structurally sound.  And she was also our pick as well!!!

Giving Lyra time to grow and continuing to evaluate  her through her growth stages she really never ever fell apart…topline was always level and strong, naturally stood square on her legs and strongly, her gait was correct but the mind was young.

Starting in Jan. 2011 I was taking Lyra to conformation classes to see how her mind would focus on what she knew with others in a strange place doing their own thing.  She handled it quite well and really did stay focused on what she was suppose to be doing.

We continued to work with her lightly letting her mind mature and enjoying recess with all the other Low Riders Frapping in the back yard. Then I noticed a change in her mind…not that it was ever bad but more relaxed and ready for some serious work.  We began our training sessions again and noticed a huge change in expression and following my body ques and she was enjoying it staying completely focused on me even though we were doing our training in the middle of the WWC Pack Playing, weaving in and out of us! It was time to get in the show ring.

Lyra’s 1st time out the beginning of May under judge Marian Johnson Your won Reserve Winners Bitch!!! It didn’t take her long to earn her 1st AKC points by winning Winners Bitch and Best of Opposite at the end of May. By her 4th show the middle of June she won Winners Bitch and Best of Winners for a MAJOR!!!!

1st MAJOR WIN 10 months old

The beginning of August, Lyra won her 2nd MAJOR going Winners Bitch and Best of Winners the 1st day of a 4 day show!

WB BOS BOW MAJOR WIN

We were so exstatic we didn’t stop to make sure our calculations of points were correct with AKC and moved Lyra up as a SPECIAL the remaining 3 days. She had earned some pts. towards a Grand Championship that weekend winning Select. This is when you learn a lesson that you will never make again in your life because it costs your bank account and is a major let down but once this show was over still being on Cloud 9 you get a phone call from AKC stating we are 1 pt shy of a championship and our Select win for pts. towards a Grand Championship are no good.  I was so mad at myself I could of cut all of my hair off…all that money I wasted!!!!!

Once I was over my temper tantrum and some what  use to the feeling of wasting money and time,  we sent Lyra out one last time earning her final point for her well deserved CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! Lyra in 10 shows in 5 months earned a Championship!! My very 1st bred by along with 2 other siblings which is another story to be told at a later date.  😉

Lyra has passed her CERF, vWD clear, DM carrier, and prelim Hips GOOD…she is enjoying her time frapping and being a pet at the moment.  She is a very athletic girl who loves to cuddle and gives you the most pathetic look if you try to ignore her.  Her temperament is A1 being bold but gentle, assertive but not nasty and is game for just about anything if it entails FOOD!!!!!!

Misty Ridges Wendt Worth Honey Lark “Sian”: 1 Reserve Winners, 2 Winners and 2 BOS.  Her pedigree is exceptional including 10 ROMX, 5 ROM w/ #1 All Time Top Ten Sire, # 4 Time Top Ten Sire & #8 All Time Top Ten Dam

CH Larklain Rogers Magic Marker “Marker”: His pedigree is stunning, with Honeyfox, Cinonnie, Magnum of Vennwoods and of course, Larklain featured prominently. “Marker” is from one of the very last litters bred by Carol together with her mother Elaine Erganbright.

The Larklain kennel name is a chunk of PWC history, started many years ago by the noted breeder Elaine Erganbright, who bred over 200 champion Pembroke Welsh Corgis. She established a line that was noted for its superb temperament and willing disposition as well as conformation that won time and again. Even after her passing, Elaine is still today one of the top Corgi breeders in the USA. He finished his championship in 2003 with 18 points and 2 majors.

Wendt Worth Corgis has  personally called AKC Investigations and Inspections Dept. at 1-919-816-3629 and talked w/a gal that did verify that they received a call on this and that the individuals had a description and plate number to the vehicle and has been advised to talk to authorities. She also said anyone of their inspectors would be more then happy to wait for you to call AKC for verification and all AKC inspectors will have a photo ID on them and will patiently wait while you call AKC. Below is the forwarded message I have received.

Hi-I do know this is concerning Ohio-as I received an e-mail from Jack
Norton-of AKC-cautioning that another breeder in my area-North Central
Ohio-was visited by a person claiming to be the AKC compliance inspector.
Since she knew the inspector-she was concerned and called AKC to verify that
this was an AKC inspector. She was told that it was not-and did not permit
entry. No one knows for sure who this person was that is impersonating an
AKC inspector-but it is very suspicious-and may be an AR activist. We don’t
know-and AKC is issuing a warning for this area. They may try it again
elsewhere-so it is a good idea to verify anyone entering your facility. I
forwarded the original message to another Ohio breeder-and it has spread
from Ohio. Still- it could be tried anywhere-so be cautious.

The bill requires pet stores to put information about the animal on its cage in the store. That includes the animal’s medical history, the name of the breeder and any congenital disorders.

Customers could get other information, including the address and size of the breeding operation, upon request or when they buy an animal.

****WWC Note*****
My Experience with 2 Pet Shop Corgis

I wrote this back in July 2009 to try and make more people aware of pet shop puppies and why one should not buy a pet shop pup or at least be more aware of the breed your looking to purchase.

This started when on 2 occasions I had puppy buyers inquire on my pups because they fell in love with a Corgi pup at a pet store. The first pet store was at the corner of Lorain Rd. and Rocky River Dr. in Cleveland. The other was a franchise in North Olmsted. I was asked to look these puppies over and give my honest opinion. I warned these people that I do not condone the selling of pups in stores, specially when buyers are not screened and impulse buying is promoted.

In Cleveland, the pups were not on wire but well bedded clean large pens with other pups for socialization. Regularly the pups were allowed out to roam the store. The owner of the store was friendly and more then willing to answer my questions and show me paperwork. This Corgi pup on the other hand didn’t seem healthy. He was not very social for a 3-4 mo old puppy, pot bellied, and skinny. The quality of this pup was lacking. The price was more reasonable then most pet store pups with discounts on many additional needs the pup would need for $650.00. BUT….I was told the pup was AKC and came from a reputable breeder. After that being said I asked to see the paperwork to learn this pup wasn’t AKC and came from Missouri. I am in noway suggesting that Missouri only homes puppy mills but when a pup travels this far with no AKC paperwork to a pet store, well if it walks and quacks like a duck…then I see it as a duck.

The franchise pet store in North Olmsted earns a big fat F. They are misleading, deceiving, and in noway screen buyers anymore then the credit they hold by promoting puppy sales and monthly payment plans. Considering the price of this Corgi pup on sale for $1299.00, I would say they’d need to offer a payment plan for most impulsive pet buyers. The pups were kept on wire bottoms with smaller breeds having their paws slipping through. Even with being on wire bottoms to keep pups out of feces, the pups hair coat was grimmey and a lot of shedding which tells me they are not groomed or bathed regularly. His weight was good, nails short, good bite, eyes clean, but horrible docking job. Very happy pup that was out of control with biting anything his mouth could be laid on without any concern of retaliation that they learn from litter mates or their mother. He had no idea how to behave amongst humans and had been allowed this behavior and fear that someone who is a novice or has a young child is not going to be a good combination. When walking away he seemed cow hocked and weak in the back legs for a 12 week old pup but with the small limited space provided for viewing and the slippery service and overly excited pup it was hard to evaluate.

I asked if he was AKC registered and was told he was. Was also told he had Champions in his pedigree and when asked to see his pedigree was denied not once but several times. I asked where the pup came from and who was the reputable breeder and was denied over and over again as well. WHY??? This is my right!!!

If I’m going to buy this pup for $1299.00, I want to see the paperwork. I wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it, seeing the title, or having a carfax report. The blond who was trying to keep her cool with me went in the back to get me some of the information I was persistently requesting to only come back with vet records and to say she learned the pup had no AKC papers, only ACA and no Champions but still failed to tell me this reputable breeder. OH WAIT..that’s right, pet stores feel USDA approved kennels are reputable. We all know whats been found in some of these USDA approved kennels. If not, open your eyes and google for some links on these so called reputable approved USDA kennels. You be the judge.

She then tried to sell the pup by saying they guarantee the pup against diseases for 3 yrs. They will pay all vet bills. Such a guarantee when they know nothing on the pedigree and no testing on parents but for $1299.00, I guess they could afford some vet bills. The question is, what hoops do you need to jump through for them to approve the diagnosis and receive payment? Puppies have died just days after going to their forever homes to have the pet store turn their backs. Not a guarantee I’d trust. Needless to say, with them hiding information that I am rightfully to know and misleading some of the information, they are hiding something and this pup is not worth no where near $1299.00.

This is where you as the buyer need to learn more about the breed you are purchasing and be patient to wait for the right pet puppy from someone who has the sire and dam and can easily be reached for the life of that pup to answer your questions and guide you when something is troubling you or the pup. Talk to other breeders and compile the information but don’t buy pet store dogs. Your only helping the problem to persist in the long run. Your not saving all the other pups who will follow because you felt you needed to save this one.
