1. I'm glad to hear it. I love corgis!

They are the smartest little creatures ever, and very loyal and loving, too.

10. I have been thinking about them. The Pembroke ones.


But I heard they can be yappy, and difficult to potty train. Any truth to that?

5. Wonderful dogs.

I grew up with the same two from the age of 6 to 19.

6. It's not necessarily a good thing when a breed becomes "popular."

Corgis are prone to a debilitating genetic disorder called DM. It is pretty widespread, unfortunately. Please investigate before you decide on a corgi.

7. When certain breeds become popular, backyard breeders get busy producing puppies. A lot of these

puppies turn up in pet shops, craigslist, online yard sale sites. When they turn up with health issues, they are often brought into animal shelters and those of us who work in animal rescue break our necks trying to place them with rescue groups. We saw it with dalmations many years ago after the movie, 1001 Dalmations. We saw it with chihuahuas after the Taco Bell commercials. When their breeder stock starts to age, they bring them into the county animal shelters where they are sometimes euthanized for lack of space. Do a google search for puppy mills, esp. Amish puppy mills.

8. Exactly.

God bless you good people who devote your time and lives to rescuing these poor creatures. It must be heart-breaking.

9. I've gotten addicted to a YouTube vlog by a really nice guy & his Corgi named Gatsby.

It's very entertaining, not an egofest, and it's Corgi-centric. The videos are very well done. If you're interested, his main channel is VlogAfterCollege; Gatsby has a channel with shorter videos, GreatGatsbyCorgi.
