Welsh Cardigans

We specialize in breeding quality Black & White and Blue Merle Cardigan Corgis since 1999 . Have taken a fancy to Black & Whites and Blue Merles with tan points . We offer puppies for sale to qualified homes and generally have three litters per year. Our older Cardigan friends will sometimes be placed in special homes to enjoy their retirement .

Thanks to the enforcement of zoning restrictions from the Town of Glenville , we are no longer allowed to have chickens . Still enjoy vegetable gardening . Added raising Californian Rabbits too . Wife has two retired Greyhounds .

We welcome inquiries about Cardigans and am generally available by email , bigearsk@gmail.com . Am member of Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America & New England Yankee Cardigan Club . Breeder in good standing with AKC . Have AKC , Canadian champions & Grand Champions . Recently AKC notified us that based on our history , number of champions , showmanship , & number of litters successfully whelped , Big Ears Kennel can apply for Breeder of Merit status !

People have found my old website on angelfire . It has not been updated in decades & states " no puppies " . Not so , we have puppies & will have more in the future ! Follow my blog , bigearskennel.blogspot.com !

Over the years two things that bother me are ; those that ask only price & the term corgi . There are so many questions a interested party may ask about Cardigans , price should not be the first & only question ! One fellow's entire inquiry was " How much , might be interested in a female " ? My reply based on this limited inquiry was " $82,000 " . He did not appreciate my humor . Now corgi is my second bafflement . Few people realize there are two corgi breeds . I've answered " corgi " inquiries in great detail , in a series of emails , only to learn they were only interested in Pembrokes . So if you inquire about " corgis " , I will try to define which breed . If your only question is price , I may not reply !

Wish people will understand Mother Nature limits color & gender of pups available . We try to match the best pup to a good home . That can only be done by visiting & bonding . Shipping is not an option , too many horror stories . Many online sites promise Blue Merles & shipping . Before you send money to these sites , check them out . Many are fronts for puppy mills & scams . Some will never see their money or puppy . One site had over 144 complaints !

A common request we get for this uncommon breed is " A Blue Merle female " . Cardigans are not a common breed . There are only a few breeders east of the Mississippi . Only a few of these breed for Blue Merles . To get a quality Blue Merle , one must breed to a Black & White for crisp color & avoid genetic faults attached to recessive genes . Breeding for Blue Merles a litter may produce one or two Blue Merles . One might be a female . For every Blue Merle pup we get 10 inquiries . So don't be hurt if Mother Nature is cruel !

So Hot !

Lost track of how many days we've had humid weather in the 90s . Very rare for Upstate NY . Step outside into the sun & it's like getting hit with a hot wet towel ! Have the pups in front of fan . Have older Cardigans & rabbits under shade trees .

Kylo Practices Being A Couch Potato !

Dog Heaven !

Remember watching the old Twilight Zone where Arthur Hunnicutt & his coon hound try to get into Heaven . The Devil poses as St.Peter & won't let the old man in with his dog . So the old man decides to walk down the road , where he meets the real St.Peter . St.Peter welcomes the old man & his dog . That's the way it should be . The bond between Human & dog goes back thousands of years & will go on for thousands more . 

Dragon's Final Day .

Dragon's health has been failing for several months . He has a gastro-digestive condition , that steadily worsened , in spite of veterinarian care & medication . Today the vet will come to end Dragon's weakening hardship . He was rescued from the perils & stress of the race track . Kate has cared for her beloved pet in health & sickness . I'll miss him hanging out in the kitchen & stealing unguarded sandwiches . Kate will miss walking him to the park . We picked a spot for him , back by the garden . His easy nature & grace will be missed .
