I'm married to Brian, a lovely scotsman, and have a 23 year old daughter who is studying to be a science teacher. We have 4 corgis (3 Cardis, 1 Pem), 2 English Cocker Spanials, 6 cats and 2 rats!\

Looking forward to learning more here!

Welcome to BYC - nice to see another dog lover. I used to raise and show American Cocker Spaniels. Haven't seen any Cardigans outside of a show ring. I notice several Pems. around the area though mostly reds but one tri color. Very nice dogs.
Hello there and welcome to BYC!

So glad you could join our community!
Welcome to BYC, Marianne. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have a very good and thorough introduction. I had all three of your breeds at one time or another and you have some very friendly and docile breeds. I still have some Orpingtons in my flock, and my granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) has made lap pets of them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
