"I also wonder about this for the coming winter and our fluff. Does anybody recommend booties/mittens to prevent snow build-up or do they just get in the way?"

Jane Christensen replied to Elisabeth Spector's discussion Question about fur type and snow
"Very seldom use coats...only when the wind chill is -10 or colder and wind. They'll be fine and much more fun rolling in the snow without a coat! We are having a blizzard tonight and it hasn't bothered mine axcept I limit the time outside."

Question about fur type and snow

Hi, all.  Our family is driving from Houston TX to the mountains in New Mexico later this month to go snowboarding and we're taking the corgis with us (they're excellent car/hotel travelers, having logged over 7000 miles in the last 2 years!).  For the first time, they'll be out in snowy conditions--probably not much more than for their daily walks near the hotel, but maybe some other excursions as well.  Betsy's coat is short, smooth and dense and repels water like crazy.  We can give her a…See More

About My Corgi(s):
We have two corgis, both rescues. Our corgi girl is Betsy, a red and white Pembroke we rescued from a local shelter in late 2009. She's smart, beautiful, well-trained (but with just enough of that female bossy streak, LOL) and a complete joy. We recently adopted Freddy from a shelter in Louisiana. He's a big, burly tri-colored pembroke, very easy-going and eager to please. He enjoys having Betsy show him the rules of the house and happily follows her on our walks. And Betsy greatly enjoys her role as big sister and "teacher". They have recently started frapping and playing together like true brother and sister. We're so happy to have them both!
I have:
Pembroke

I am new to mycorgi.com and just looking at your photos or your Sweet fur-kids.  What a couple of characters they are!! lol  They are so cute together!!  We have a beautiful Red and White PWC in California waiting for our return and just got a new baby Tri boy to take back to Cali with us and soon as my husband and I get thru with our cancer treatments here at MD Anderson.  Our fur-baby's name is Hogan Dahy (little lad, quick and agile). As soon as we get his puppy shots all in order we hope to take him to some meet-ups to get acquainted with other babies. He's now 12 weeks old. : ))

Hi! I am from Baytown and we hit up the Bay Area park every once in a while. Maybe we'll see you there sometime or we can plan to meet! My two love meeting other corgis.

Hello, again! My wife had a job fair in Pearland this morning, but Bronwyn and I came along for the ride and went to the dog park at Independence Park while waiting for my wife. The park was quiet, and the only other dogs there were two min-pins. We had a good experience and my wife seems more open to going to Bay Area Park with Bronwyn in the future. We're pretty busy the first part of next week, but I'm thinking maybe Thursday or Friday evening might be a good time.

Sounds like you had fun with the big group today...
