I had to post this video because the one making the rounds on Facebook recently doesn’t seem to allow embedding onto non-Facebook websites. Anyway, I’ve posted a different Corgi competing here but the original and more current video is posted on the ilovecorgis.com facebook site. This Youtube video is simply a placeholder.
Now, watching these videos reminds me of when Bling was a younger pup and could run any other dog into the ground. She’s getting on in age now and while she still has the heart of a warrior, and gives 110% effort for a good 50 yard dash, her stamina has waned. The Facebook post (From KOLO 8 News in Reno) appears to imply that Corgis aren’t athletic and agile dogs! A ridiculous assumption and stereotype!
Ok, I know this video of why we love Corgis appeared on Buzzfeed, but this can’t not (yes, double negative!) be posted on ilovecorgis! A “Why We Love Corgis” video is the essence of this site. Consider this a mission statement! The video is great with the two highlights being:
1. The Corgi getting tossed into the lake in slow motion. Bling would never stand for that though I suspect deep down she would kind of enjoy it.
2. Learning there is a Corgi named Don Corg-leone. I thought Corgnelius was perhaps the best Corgi name…but now he’s got a run for his money.
If I love Corgis (.com) and You love Corgis (.com?) then can we all just agree that WE LOVE CORGIS (.com or no .com)
As we’ve come to expect from the Westminster Kennel Club, another Westminster Herding Group judge has laid to waste the undeniable superiority of Corgis and instead selected a non-Corgi to represent the Group for Best In Show (airing tonight!). In what has become an annual tradition at ilovecorgis.com, let’s try our best to recap the Westminster Herding Group 2015 travesty.
Representing the Herding Group tonight for Best In Show will be GCH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect, an almost 4 year old Old English Sheepdog:
GCH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect Old English Sheep Dog
Second through fourth place were won by a Bouvier Des Flandres (?!?), an Australian Shepherd, and a German Shepherd.
Bouvier Des Flandres: GCH Stonepillar’s Steel Blu
Australian Shepherd: GCH Copper Hills No Reservations CGC
German Shepherd: GCH Lockenhaus’ Rumor Has It V Kenlyn placed 4th in the Westminster 2015 Herding Group
Bling is in shock. While she loves running with a pair of German Shepherds at the dog park, and Lexxie’s best dog park friend is an Australian Shepherd, Bling can only feel the sting of another lost year for the Pembroke Corgi world. And for the record, there is a dog in that Bouvier Des Flandres photograph, it isn’t just a black spot.
Does the Sheepdog Bugaboo have undeniable fluffiness? Of course. Are Australian Shepherds agile and intelligent? Definitely. Do German Shepherds exhibit steadfast loyalty and a keen wit? For sure. But don’t fluffiness, agility, intelligence, loyalty and wittiness describe Corgis to a T (or C as it were).
So another year in the Westminster Herding Group has come and gone with Corgis left by the wayside. Bling is exploring legal action.
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 →
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 →
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 →
After Bling spent the last week mopping up the floor of baby food spilled by the Ginga’ Ninjas’ (Heather’s cousins), and her persistent begging for table scraps and leftovers from the night’s dinner left her with a bountiful feast, I’m … Continue reading →
Bling’s official diagnosis was a right-sided retrobulbar abscess. She’s been on antibiotics now for a week, and is completely back to normal. So what is a retrobulbar abscess? After much research and study, let me explain… A retrobulbar abscess is … Continue reading →
My only question would be, suppose you put one of these amazing stamps on an important envelope and dropped it in the mailbox. What are the chances the letter reaches its destination? I’m no postal worker, but if I’m lugging … Continue reading →
I’ll pretty much let the video speak (or bark as it were) for itself. Catchy tune? Check. Good production value? Check. Corgis? Double check mate! I will say this, seeing all these talented Corgis with their advanced tricks, song voices, … 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 →
