She was independent, confident, funny, and SO special.

George got her to "do agility" and "do agility" she did. All of our dogs love agility but Morgan lived for agility. She would run with anyone just for the joy of getting to run the equipment. She taught many people in my classes and at trials to GET MOVING on an agility course.

Morgan started her agility career with my husband, George. She was his first corgis, and then became mine as well. He asked the breeder for a small female with attitude, and boy did he get it. The first thing you would notice about her was her petite size but within a minute or two her overwhelming attitude was evident. George decided to stop running Morgan due to his pursuit in other interests and uncooperative knees. So I took her over. I tell people he did all of the hard work and I got the glory runs. I was surprised when I first started traveling out of the area to trials. It could be a regional a national, whatever, when the "gate" would call Morgan's name I had someone turn around and say, "Oh this is Morgan. We have heard great things about her." This happened on more than one occasion. She loved everyone and considered those at agility trials "her people". Her "woo woo" brought a smile to all.

Morgan's agility accomplishments are many but here are a few of the highlights. She attended four AKC Nationals. In 2009 she was 14 1/2 weeks out of TPLO surgery. We didn't have the consistency to make the finals but she had a great time. In 2010 she made the Challengers round and in 2011(at the age of 12) she missed the finals by 0.5 seconds. She attended the USDAA Cynosport Games in 2010 and made the podium taking second in Performance Grand Prix.

One of my fondest memories of Morgan and one that defines her so well, is when she ran pairs with one of her Best Corgi Girl Friends, Saige. Saige ran first, and her handler Donna Sims told me, "make sure I have Saige before you leave with Morgan". I meant to, but as soon as I got the baton I left. Saige ran with us. Morgan ran the entire part of her course, with Saige paralleling her and barking madly in her face, and Morgan giving it right back. BUT she did everything completely and correctly and we Q'd. I would pay to have that on video. Morgan and I often had a battle of the wills and even though I had to say "Morgan BROWN" frequently, I loved every minute I ran with her.

The Brown house is very empty without her huge presence. But we will focus on the joy she brought to our lives.

AKC 2011 National Agility Championships, April 1 - 3, 2011
Morgan was awsome in Lexington, Virginia, at the AKC Nationals. She was clean in all 5 runs and just missed getting into the finals by 0.5 seconds...ending up in 10th place overall. Not bad for our little 12 year old warrior.

AKC 2009 National Agility Championships, March 27 - 29, 2009
Morgan had some great runs in North Carolina at the AKC Nationals.  Our bobbles were mostly attributed to our lack of practice due to her rehab from her  December TPLO surgery.  You have to admit she looked pretty feisty (and happy too!) for a 10 year old corgi, 14.5 weeks out of surgery.
