ilovecorgis.com is like any other multi-national conglomerate in its desire to recruit and train the next generation of hot shot young executives. This is the reason for it’s highly regarded, extremely competitive dog internship program offered to up and coming pups. Here at ilovecorgis.com HQ, we are pleased to announce our brand new intern for 2014 – Eli:
Eli definitely finagled his way into his internship, claiming on his resume to have short stubby legs like our CEO, and promising that he too is only 25 pounds. Bling is quite sure he isn’t a Corgi but ilovecorgis.com does not discriminate. Eli’s responsibilities will include exploration, house-training exercises, and dog socialization. Now let’s just hope the new intern doesn’t plan to sue ilovecorgis.com, we’re only paying him in bones and treats. To see more of his bio, visit our Board of Dogrectors page.
It’s been a tough week at ilovecorgis.com HQ. Despite the awesome injection of enthusiasm from Mellie, our Corgi of the month for February, and two yet-to-be-revealed Corgis that put “dynamic” in dynamic duo, here at headquarters we’ve been on high alert
First, Bling decided to almost take a slow train to Cuba. Or Mexico. Or somewhere. She decided she had had enough of this cold weather and snow drifts that are three times her height. She envisioned running with a pack of wild Chihuahuas some place warm. And so she took off, Corgi escape style.
Have You Seen Me?
She keenly waited for the one time Heather and I didn’t affix her dog proximity collar to her and decided to explore the town. She hopped in to an unmarked van and barked, “Take me to the border!” Thankfully, the minivan driver, realizing Bling’s fame, decided to call her “handlers” and return her safely into her electronically controlled yard. Thank you minivan driving neighbor. Bling, I don’t ever want to see your face on the side of a milk carton! Lesson learned: not only is Lexxie an escape artist, but apparently Bling is too.
In other news, if you tried to access the site on Sunday or Monday, you may have noticed some, how shall we say, “Technical issues.” These issues were entirely self-inflicted and the lesson learned is: stick to material. Forget fancy image galleries and animations. Forget bells and whistles (except dog whistles). This site is about content. Content is king. In a fool’s quest to spice up the site, I almost ruined it. Thankfully tech support at the hosting site came to the rescue are are hereby given full Corgi honors. Lesson learned. Stick to what I know – Corgis…or do I?
Stay tuned, we’ve got more fantastic Corgis of the month forthcoming.
Meet Mellie, ilovecorgis.com’s featured Corgi for February. Since February is such a small month, and Mellie is by no means small, and because we’re pretty much through February already, I also declare Mellie to be the featured Corgi for March. Mellie in March, that has a ring to it…even if it is still February. Anyway, if Mellie is anything like Bling she undoubtedly loves food. Thank you Angela for passing along a picture of Mellie!
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 →
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 →
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 →
Here’s some “footage” from the Herding Group at the 2013 Westminster Dog Show (Bling’s group!): Check out the Pembroke shot at the 14 second mark and the Cardigan shot at the 24 second mark. Note: the comment about the … Continue reading →
Who would have thought that a pet catalog would have so many pictures of corgis? I didn’t; that is until I picked up a Doctors Foster and Smith Pet Catalog. Like the ad geniuses at Avoderm, the photo department at … 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 →
First, a shout out to my friends Mike and Alison, whose amazing Corgi cinematography made these Corgi Youtube videos possible. This really should generate some Oscar buzz. Now, a little background. The now famous Corgi Flop on Youtube is perhaps … Continue reading →
Yep, I knew that learning how to get videos onto youtube, and subsequently embed them into this site, would be a gold mine. Here’s my second Bling video. Notice first, that she swims quite well without her lifejacket. In calm … Continue reading →
Though she is currently without an agent, Bling is actively pursuing endorsement deals with various Fortune 500 companies. She took time out of her busy schedule to model Crate and Barrel’s boxes and gift wrap. I think she looks great. … Continue reading →
Bling went for a vet visit the other day to have a routine check up. I’m afraid to report that she is now considered a “senior dog” and laboratory work and a urine were sent. I don’t even want to … Continue reading →
