Meet Bella, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy! Thank you Rebecca for passing the pictures along, it looks like Bella is having a ton of fun!
“Look at me sprawl!”
Nice and relaxed
And since Bella is our only featured Corgi so far this year, let’s go ahead and consider her our Featured Corgi for this month, last month, the month before that and even the month before that! Way to go Bella!
At ilovecorgis.com HQ, we know another dog named Bella. Our friend Bella, as a French Bulldog, is just a tad bit larger than Rebecca’s Bella but both like to have fun.
Corgis make excellent surfers due to their low center of gravity, fearlessness and, at least in Bling’s case, love for the water. I think this surfer Corgi is a little nervous at first, but totally loves it by the end. Hang 10! (or 20?)
The other day, I remarked that I thought Bling was looking a bit, how shall we say, rotund. The last weight we could remember was a svelte 26 pounds but that was at least a year ago at her last Vet visit (after which we patted ourselves on the back that she hadn’t gained any weight in years). A Corgi diet of her regular meals plus all the treats she can beg for and all the dead wild animals (snakes!!) she can eat has taken its toll. My friends, the CEO of ilovecorgis.com needs to go on a diet and it is starting today. The days of a lean, mean, fighting Bling machine have come and gone. Come to think of it, Bling was never mean, and still has the fight. But the point is, her slender days have slipped away. That’s right, at the Vet today, Bling clocked in at 31.6 pounds! 31.6!!
Not coincidentally, other members of the ilovecorgis.com creative team are also getting a little long in the belt (as well as long in the tooth). Maybe we all could use a Corgi diet. The ilovecorgis.com HQ is abolishing sweets, treats, and fatty meats. No more donut snacks, second coffees, third coffees and donuts with coffee! Board meetings will be held on treadmills and only salads will be served!
In somewhat related Corgi news, it turns out we confused Bling’s birthday and cheated her out of a year. She’s not 9, she’s actually a more dignified 10 (and will be turning 11 in a few months). This bombshell has ramifications throughout ilovecorgis.com HQ. Will Bling be forced out of her CEO position now that she’s approaching social security age? Does the extra year excuse the extra pound (or two, or three)? What does the fact that Bling is approaching geriatric status mean for the Corgi movement?
Warning: This might be the best post I’ve ever made. Proceed with caution. Not too long ago I posted a picture of myself wearing the most hard core, hard corg t-shirt in the world. But then, a few days later, … Continue reading →
Remember that Corgi sign from the other day? If you don’t remember, check out the post, and the sign: Well, someone really cool and really funny posted an awesome review on amazon.com. I wonder who that could be? If you … Continue reading →
Listed as a business expense, I picked up a little gem of a Corgi book titled, “The Pembroke Welsh Corgi – Family Friend and Farmhand” by Susan Ewing, from the local bookshop known as amazon.com. A chapter into it and … Continue reading →
Is it me or is this Corgi advertisement for Stainmaster racist against Corgis? And if not racist, than at least breedist. Is Stainmaster implying that Corgis, along with cats, frequently make messes on the carpet? (I realize the print … Continue reading →
So I stumbled across this advertisement in a magazine the other day and I must say, the marketing gurus at Avoderm (some kind of dog food?) have targeted a key demographic with their ads: corgi lovers. I’ll admit, I’m sold. … Continue reading →
Top secret photos from wikileaks have confirmed what Heather and I have long suspected – Bling sneaks onto our red couch for a comfortable little nap when she thinks we’re not looking. She knows she’s not allowed on the couch … Continue reading →
Well, if you can’t beat them, and you can’t join them, then sometimes you just have to go it alone. That’s what Bling has always said. And now she’s put her money where her snout is. If she can’t make … Continue reading →
As Spring finally rounds the corner, new fashions appear. Not to be outdone by other Fortune 500 executives, and aware that custom suits are the status quo on Wall Street, Bling and fellow executives at ilovecorgis.com have decided it’s time … Continue reading →
Part 2 continues with: It’s a corgi carry-all! My main question is: how did they bribe the corgi with enough treats to get him or her to sit so comfortably in the cage? I ask because Bling HATES her little … Continue reading →
In her quest to become a global icon, Bling has decided she would like to be sponsor of Chuckit! brand ball throwers. Bling feels that an endorsement deal would be mutually beneficial. Chuckit! would receive fantastic Corgi pictures featuring the … Continue reading →
