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.
Some people wear giant gold chains, or even clocks, around their necks. Bling’s got her own style (and needs). When Bling brings the bling, here’s what she’s got: 1. Proximity Collar. An absolutely must. Bling darts out our side door … 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 →
I will be honest, when Bling spent two nights in the animal hospital, I went through Corgi withdrawal. To get my Corgi fix, I went to amazon.com to look for Corgi products. Low and behold I discovered: (click on image … Continue reading →
In my never ending quest to assimilate more Corgi knowledge and then, in turn, disseminate it to the millions of readers of this website, I have gathered all the relevant/pertinent information from Susan Ewing’s masterpiece, “The Pembroke Welsh Corgi – … 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 →

If Bling were to like children’s literature, and suddenly take an appreciation for water color pastels of animals, then she would undoubtedly favor “Corgiville Fair” by Tasha Tudor. Featuring Bling’s secret heart-throb Caleb Corgi, the story is a tale … Continue reading →
