Good Day to you!
Welcome to our website! We are very excited to highlight the "short" members of our family. If any of you know us, we are often referred to the "Tall Family" but this website is mostly about the short legged members in our house, the Corgis! Please note: We are planning any litter until possible Fall of 2016. We hope you enjoy this site and the time you spend getting to know us a little better. It's interesting how loving a breed of dog can open up the world to so many new people who share a common bond--their fascination for the the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. An important thing to remember as you browse our site, all photos are the "property of Peri Lane Pembroke Welsh Corgis" and NOT to be duplicated or used without authorized written consent from the website owner.
HOW THIS ALL CAME TO BE!
I was born into a dog crazy home with German Shepherds which later transitioned over to showing Rottweilers as a family hobby with my parents. My first step into the AKC ring was in 1976 and I have been hooked ever since. We had owned and bred champion Rottweilers; several which were specialty winners and campaigned a female to the #5 spot in the top ten back in the early 80’s. After I married Tom and we had our son, Alex, I decided to scale back to a more manageable size breed but one that had the enthusiasm of a larger working breed. At a conformation class in the early 90’s I met a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and haven’t been without one since.
Our first champion was from the Vahaly’s, Ch Pennington Humphrey Bogart. “Hugo” was the perfect starter dog for me to learn how to groom and show a Pembroke on, together we won five Herding Group I placements as well as many other group wins in the all breed ring.
Our foundation bitch is our “Daphni”, Ch Pot O’ Gold’s Allure At Perilane, sired by Ch Renefield GQ At Peri Lane, who really stamped a look on our dogs. Every Corgi in our house, with the exception of our two Australian Imports, goes back to Daphni. Our pride and joy at Peri Lane is our “Dylan”, BISS Ch Peri Lane The Ghost Dancer; he is from our first home bred litter; I consider it to be an honor to be at the end of his lead.
Our kennel prefix was taken from our first champion Corgi bitch, Ch Renefield Periwinkle. I enjoy showing at specialties both young dogs and the treasured veterans we have today.
My husband, Tom, and I have a singleton of our own, our 27 year old son, Alex. Alex just graduated in May of 2012 as a Firefighter and in 2013 as a Paramedic. In September 2015 he married Jenn Stephens so our family has grown!
We are very proud of Alex and our Peri Lane Corgis.
In 2013, a new starlet entered our lives, her name is Patty and she is in partnership with my dearest friend, Yolanda Lininger of Linincorgi Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Patty is Ch Double G's Catamarans That Kind Of Girl. Patty is sired by MBISS GrCh Linincorgi's Liv' On a Prayer and her dam is Ch Double G's Lili's Catamaran, bred by Dr. Marthina Greer, DVM. She was Best in Sweepstakes at 10 months old at the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America in St. Louis under Judge, Joan Scott. From there on out, Patty went Winners Bitch or better at 4 big specialty shows to gain her title at 18 months old, winning several more sweepstakes and specialty awards along the way. We now look forward to her career in the show ring as a champion. With the passing of my heart dog Dylan, I now have Patty on the left side to fill a deep void, she loves to show!

This is my dear friend and partner with Patty, the day she became a champion! I am humbled and honored to share this dream girl with Yolanda Lininger!
Patty has also done well at the all breed shows getting a group 2 and group 3 in 2015 in very limited showing!
We look forward to the 2016 show season and the journey it takes on on, we feel we are headed in the right direction!
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Alex Bodin!
