"Vixen" our foundation bitch was one of the top winners in the breed on the west coast in the 1970's.  She was Best Brood Bitch and Best Veteran Bitch at the first specialty show of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of Southern California (CWCCSC).  This picture was used to illustrate the breed standard in "The Original Complete Dog Book" (TFH Publications).  Vixen was a lovely black brindle.
