Corgi Friday!

Hello again, my name is Whitney and I'm also addicted to corgis!  So I thought that on Fridays, I should dedicate the blog post to my corgi, Annie, and other corgis around the world!

Corgi Friday was started by the bloggers at Warming Glow.  As near as I can tell, they blog and somewhat mock TV and media.  BUT they have dedicated their Friday's to corgis and posting pictures, videos, and stories about corgis

A little background on corgis, specifically Pembroke Welsh corgis.  According to the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club, legend has it that the Pembroke Welsh Corgi is an "enchanted" dog, and certainly this must be true! It was said that corgis were used by the fairies and elves of Wales to pull fairy coaches, work fairy cattle, and serve as a steed for the fairy warriors. Even today those people with keen eyes and understanding hearts may see the marks of the "fairy saddle" in the coat over the shoulders.  And I totally believe it!

I can see a fairy riding Annie! Can't you? :)
Now most corgis these days are your basic pet.  But there are a few who live up to their breed and are working dogs! 
Kathy & Scott Wiley raise cattle near Musselshell, MT and have FOUR hard working corgis!  They were featured on the Animal Planet on a segment called 'Small Dogs, Big Jobs'.  They definitely earn their keep on the ranch! 

You might also know that the Queen of England has a few corgis of her own...

Or is it this Queen that has all the corgis?

Either way, you can tell that corgis are lovable, full of personality, and Montana State University Bobcat fans!!

Annie also does a lot of work with us on the farm.

The good news about my addiction to corgis is that I'm not alone!  I found this website last year that was specifically for those who have OCD, commonly known as Obsessive Corgi Disorder

The funny thing is, my husband's friend just posted the link to this website on my husband's Facebook wall tonight!  Little did he know that I was already in the process of writing this blog post specifically about corgis!  He must have

Anyways, I sure hope you love corgis or will come to love corgis as a result of Corgi Fridays!  If you are a lover of corgis, I'd love to hear about it! 

Thanks for joining me on the dirt roads tonight.  As always, dream big and Carpe' Diem! 



  1. I can't wait to have another Corgi!

  2. Corgi's are so cute! My husband bought me one when we were first married.. sadly, we lost him. :(

    1. Ahhh! I'm sorry to hear that! I sure hope you get another corgi! They are just balls of energy and full of personality!
