The CWCCA Board approved a $1,000 donation to the AKC Reunite Challenge fund for assistance in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. By donating to the Challenge Fund our donation will be matched for a total of $2,000. We are pleased to be able to make a contribution to help all dog owners in the Houston area, but especially our members who are affected by the flooding.

ANNOUNCING THE CHEREE KIRKBRIDE MEMORIAL GRANT FOR IVDD RESEARCH
We are proud to announce that the CWCCA has donated $5000 to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine Department of Neurology to help fund a project that will be analyzing the DNA of Dachshunds looking for genetic markers that predict the risk of developing intervertebral disk disease and to identify genetic factors that might correlate with recovery of spinal cord function. This project is a collaboration between the veterinary schools at Texas A&M and North Carolina State.
BLUE MERLE COLOR: CARDIGAN YES, PEMBROKE NO…
While the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear similar, they are in fact two distinct breeds that developed separately centuries ago in geographically distinct areas of Wales. They are part of the cultural heritage of Wales and each breed deserves to be preserved and protected like any cultural treasure.
One of the many breed characteristics that distinguish Cardigans from Pembrokes is color. Cardigans come in more colors including blue merle and brindle which have never occurred in purebred Pembrokes. Since canine geneticists have proven that both of these traits are dominant, it is virtually impossible for either color to suddenly appear in a litter of Pembrokes. Blue merle or brindle Pembrokes are a result of crossbreeding which is not condoned by the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America or their members. These puppies are not purebred, are not eligible to be registered in the AKC Stud Book and cannot compete in AKC Conformation or Herding events.
