A Welsh Yard by definition is a unit of length equal to 40 inches (approximately 1 metre), used in Wales. A second definition known to Cardigan owners, is that a Welsh Yard is the distance from the tip of a Cardigan's nose to the tip of his tail.
I offer a third definition, as the distance kept between littermate brothers for the purpose of preventing a tussle during a photoshoot. Here is my pictorial definition:
On the left is Jimmy's littermate, the very handsome Bobby. Wilson, Jimmy and I got together with Bobby and Claire (who has yet to join all of us in blogland....hint, hint!) for a bit of R and R in the country. I'll be posting more photos later on when I've had a chance to wade through what I took.
