Dora the #Corgi at the Jersey Shore: A Corgi-licious Vacation!



Dear Corgi Nation,

My name is Dora. This Summer I had a blast taking my humans to the Jersey Shore!







Sunrise. With Corgi. 






Have tennis ball, will travel!

A swimming dog beach. Of course I took them there. What's a Summer vacation without a dog beach?!





Swan Lake. With Corgi.

Instructing the ducks. Silly ducks.






I found BIG FOOT! (Whether I left my own mark is for me to know and you to guess at).






Making friends with the local cats. Nose to nose networking.






My posse. This is how we roll at the shore.





Rock Lobster. Get it? (Twenty points for retro hip!)






Perusing Le Crueset. Mais oui. These things amuse the humans. Don't ask me why.






I took them shopping for plenty of … uhh … milk. Yeah, that's it! Milk.

Mandatory cooling off, post-walkies.






Smelling the flowers. Smiling for the camera. No darlings, it's not as easy at it looks. 






I rolled in duck poop. Silly ducks.






Vacations are the BEST, don't you think?

Thursday #Corgi Adoptables: Boo of Kansas!



Meet the latest Corgi Connection of Kansas rescue: Boo!




Because young boy Boo was listed for free and not yet neutered, rescuers scooped him up, concerned he may not have been safely placed. Thanks to some long-distance networking among experienced Corgi rescuers, Boo was taken in and quickly made his way from Springfield, Missouri to Corgi Connection in Kansas.

This very sweet mix can't be older than two years old. Boo is extremely long, and right now quite thin. CCK will get him "fixed" up and teach him some manners, so he'll be ready for a new home in no time.

If you are interested in adopting Boo when he becomes available, keep an eye on the Corgi Connection of Kansas Facebook page and website, or e-mail Jeanette at jeanette@corgiconnection.com.

The First Ever Kentucky #Corgi Meet-Up Wrap Up!




On June 28, 2014, the Kentucky Corgi Meet-Up group convened for their inaugural get-together. 




Roughly twenty-two Corgis (four Cardigans, one Corgi mix, and seventeen Pembrokes) and their humans (with some non-Corgi siblings) met at Wellington Dog Park in Lexington for a few hours of frapping and Corgi camaraderie. While most of the low-riders came from Central Kentucky, one couple travelled from Nashville, Tennessee to join the fun!





The Kentucky Corgi group, originally formed on MyCorgi.com, recently
launched their own Facebook page, to plan future meet-ups and share event photos. Feel free to join!




Rain or shine, this spirited crew was prepared with pop-up tents and umbrellas. Everybody went home with a prize, from tennis balls to Corgi zipper pulls, leashes to frozen pup yogurt, thanks to donations from local companies All Leashed Up, Neogen Animal Safety and Porter Productions


Gotta love a cool doggy-themed prize!


The group is already chatting about a date for the next meet-up and invites anybody in Kentucky to join them! They want to make this an annual (at least) event. 
For more information, e-mail Megan at MLArszman@yahoo.com.

Saturday Smiler: Lila!



The Daily Corgi is committed to diversity. Yes, breeds other than Corgis do exist. And lots of "Heinz 57's" too.They're all pretty much a bone-zillion kinds of wonderful.

So every now and then, a great face, a non-Corgi face pops up here, because I CANNOT RESIST IT. 





Lila here has two Corgi siblings. And I do believe there's a bit of a resemblance. That is a Corg-ish smile, yes? So she's today's honorary smiler. Even if she didn't resemble her sibs, I'd still have to consider her, because as I said, I CANNOT RESIST HER.

Thanks to Donna W. for the submission. I asked for smiler photos and she sneakily sent this one in. I like that kind of moxie, lady. 

Happy Saturday all!
