Corgis, Paws + A Giveaway! (Closed) Happy Gotcha-Day to Our Corgi-Mix, Abby!

In celebration of these wonderfully joyful, festive and lively doggies, and our own rescue corgi-mix’s Gotcha-Day, here is a round-up of canine books, facts and more- starring corgis and all pups!

Well, this past Wednesday marked the fourth anniversary of when we adopted our little Abby Rose! She was picked up after a long journey from Mississippi (that’s right, she’s a southern belle originally!) on November 20th, 2015.

As a rescue, Abby and her six siblings were adopted near and far, as was her mama! We’re so glad we chose to adopt a rescue-there’s so many dogs in need of homes, and we were happy to give Abby a forever one!

Well, Abby is a corgi mix-more mix than corgi, but she’s still got a fair amount of corgi looks and personality in her small pooch self!

Anyways, this got me around to thinking why we don’t have a post starring Corgis on our blog!

Fun-loving, feisty Corgis are known for their long bodies, happy expressions, history as a herder breed, and life-of-the-party attitude!

Queen Elizabeth’s favorite dog breed is corgis, and she still has them to this day!

Abby and her siblings all had 'A' for their initial! Andy, Axel, Azalea, Annabelle, Ashleigh and Annmarie were her brothers and sisters!

These utterly adorable dogs are definitely popular-they even have their own ‘Corgi Beach Party ‘ in California every year, in which around six hundred corgis come from all over, convening for fun-filled festivities highlighting these cheery pups!

thanks for adopting and not shopping! We have 2 rescue dogs Koda and Sam and 4 bottle fed rescue kitties that are permanent residence in our home. I don't have a favorite - they are all so wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity to meet the newest member of your family!

Hi Lauren, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog; I'm sure your kitty is wonderful company! Someone once told me she thought cats were like marbles because each one was so beautiful and unique! It's funny the things that you remember! Thank you for entering our giveaway!

Hi Kristen! Oh my gosh, love Chihuahuas- they're so cute! We think our dog, Abby has some Chihuahua in her - she has a lot of personality for a petite pooch!😃💜
