So I always thought my sweet Penelope was a Pembroke until I went to bring her to get her shots and the vet said that she was a Cardigan because she had a tail. The woman that I got her from told me that she chose not to dock Penelope and her siblings' tails. She said something about it becoming more popular nowadays. Now I'm totally confused?
I know some Pembrokes are born without tails and most who do have tails get them docked. What do you guys think Penelope is? To me, it doesn't matter because she's still my adorable little corgi, but I just wanted to hear some insight.
You can see more pics of her on our website at www.penelopethepembroke.tumblr.com
I saw a "miniature German Shepherd" once -- it was a German Shepherd crossed with a corgi!
Yeah, we knew what it was. But it sure looked like a mini-GSD.
Looks like a tailed Pem to me. The breeder should know what she's got. :)
My vet pronounces it Cor-gee, so I just take the majority of non-medical breed-related stuff with a grain of salt.
Same here. XD Haha. That drives me crazy! I always tell them, "No... Corgi." And emphasize the fact that the word contains a G.
I've actually heard someone call it a "Gorkey" before... "Corkey" is understandable, but "Gorkey"? ...Seriously....
