This is more a curiousity question, as I have experienced this seeming 'phenomenom' where people will just have to run up to me and my dogs and ask what kind of dogs they are, or want to tell me all about their friend who had one, or how they love them, etc
Is it just me, or does the general public just have a huge curiousity and fascination about the Corgi?
I see hundreds of dogs, and never (ok, maybe once or twice) have the urge to run up to someone and ask about their dogs... as much as I love animals.
I think it is really neat personally, but just curious what others have experienced with their Corgis. Does this happen to ALL dog owners regardless of breed? I have only ever owned Corgi's personally, so maybe I am just naive?
Some of the things that have happened to me:
A motorcyle stopped in the middle of the road while I was walking Rowdy one day, the biker parked his bike, took off his helmet, and just HAD to say hello to Rowdy. He just couldnt help himself!
I have had cars yell to me and call me over (some have even parked and came over) and ask what type of dogs those are?! And then proceed to tell stories, or look in wonderment at my puppies.
People will slow down when I have Lilo in the front yard and just smile and wave and look at her... or yell out how cute she is.
When I bring Lilo to Petsmart people seem fascinated with her, "Oh look! It's a CORGI!" and all of the workers always want to play with her (granted I know it is their job to be friendly.)
I was walking my dogs past the cadillac dealership and a couple that was at the service center asked if they could come see my dogs for a moment...
I dont see any other breed specific social networking sites.... lol... although I havent really looked! ha ha
So I wanna hear others stories... of their 'famous' corgi's! :)
