I like being the only corgi in the world. Well, I like being the only corgi in my world. But as a well traveled corgi, I know that the world is big so I do occasionally see other corgis and I have to admit it's pretty fun. Over the weekend, Bethany took me on a Seattle corgi walk. Usually Bethany doesn't take me to corgi events because there might not be other cardigan corgis and hanging out with a bunch of pembroke corgis isn't my idea of fun. Can I be honest with you? I don't really like pembroke corgis. They're kind of weird with their small ears, short noses, little feet and don't even get me started about not having a tail! Please understand that I have met plenty of very nice pembroke corgis but I just don't get as excited about seeing them as I do getting to bark and wag tails with corgis from my own shire. Bethany knew for sure there was going to be at least one other cardigan corgi on this weekends walk so I let her take me. I'm glad I did because I had a great time. There were actually quite a few cardigan corgis to walk with including another blue merle and I even made the acquaintance of some very personable pembroke corgis.
Despite a stormy forecast, the weather was perfect for my parade of corgis. A torrential downpour started just as we finished our walk. Plus, this corgi walk was a Seattle Seahawks playoff rally and, judging by Bethany and Jason's cheers and excitement later, the Seahawks won. I suppose it was just my lucky day. Wait. All days are my lucky days. No matter what shire a corgi hails from, that's just the way corgis do it.
Do you ever go to group or social dog events? What about breed specific events? How do yours end up?

You know it is funny you mention that.....when Reilly was a puppy we use to take him to doggie playgroups but the only dog he would ever go near was another sheltie. I wonder what it is that makes them prefer their own kind? Looks like you had a totally pawsome weekend and we are glad you got to meet some new buddies

I know when I worked at a dog day care we noticed that the dogs definitely preferred to play by type- sporting dogs wrestled, herding dogs chased, etc. But they definitely recognize their own kind too!

Thanks so much for sharing that Taryn! The sight/memory of that one tail flying makes me smile constantly!

That looks like a fun time. A corgi meet up, I would love that.

Like most of my adventures also, my legs end up in the air by the end of the day!
