A Tribute to Louis (1996-2014)
...in a blizzard. He is the second from the right, the runt of a litter of 5.
...and so it was for the rest of her life!
Louis would beg to play with the toy until he wore someone down...and then he would play until he wore himself out!
Baby Kiva joined the pack in 2002. Louis was not too impressed.
Louis was born with a "shark jaw"...his lower jaw was much shorter than the upper. So much so that when his lower canine teeth grew in, they were poking into the roof of his mouth (because they were misaligned). He had to have his lower canines cut down and capped when he was young...of course it never bothered him a bit!
On a hot day in North Carolina, this bucket of cool water was supposed to be for drinking...Louis figured he could cool off quicker this way!
Did somebody say "cookie"?
Pico was always submissive to Louis, who never quite got the hang of being the dominant male.
We have lots of photos like this. Louis never minded Pico coming over and snuggling with him.
Cally is starting to look older here. She and Louis were 11 months apart in age, and we always thought we might lose them around the same time. We lost Cally in 2008.

Louis' eyes always seemed to tell you what was on his mind. Dad Albers called them "human" eyes.
The older corgies enjoying a nice day while young Pico runs around and won't sit still for a "pack portrait".
Louis and his corgi pack represented Wales in the Highland Festival Celtic Dog parade for many years.

As Louis got older, he had trouble with traction on the kitchen floor. These booties gave him good traction and would keep his feet warm in the winter. A great idea...but not to Louis! He wouldn't wear them.
Louis never minded traveling...here he is in a motel in Lewisburg, PA.
Taken by our wonderful neighbor Tamya. This was the day before we let him go...he was 18 years and 9 months old! He was comfortably at home and in his own bed when we said our last goodbyes.
