As soon as I found out Rose and Fergus were Corgi mixes, I knew it was going to be a fantastic session! (I have always found Corgis adorable, but since we added a Corgi mix to our own pack last year, now I’m definitely a sucker!) It was so fun to see some of Ellie’s quirks in Rose and Fergus – even the distinctive thump of their tail when you’re talking to them has a unique Corgi-ness.
Rose and Fergus were rescued together and their dad’s best guess is that Rose is Fergus’s mom since she seems a little older, but they were found together and there’s definitely some kind of family relationship there. Rose is about 11, Fergus is maybe 10, and their big brother Wales is a gorgeous 12-year-old cat with huge blue eyes who was a neighborhood stray, and chose to give David the privilege of feeding and housing him.
Rose is on the left, Fergus on the right:
I love how expressive Rose’s ears are! They have about a zillion different positions.
And of course you know how much I adore turned-out paws…
Wales is very outgoing with new people and will actually bat your hand and nibble on you when you stop petting him. Funnily enough, it’s usually the “new people” issue I have to work through when photographing cats, but instead it was the click of the shutter that gave Wales serious cause for concern.
Eventually, though, he did warm up to this crazy idea of being a model!
Fergus loves to burrow in David’s bed until all the pillows and blankets are just-so:
