My husband had a phone call out of the blue yesterday from our local BBC Radio station. They'd found us from the Kennel Club register and I guess this means that we are possibly the only owners of a…Continue

Corgis in 'The King's Speech'

I'm naively hoping that the appeareance in The King's Speech of two, healthy looking, good tempered Corgis, will go some way to a revival in the UK of what is an endangered breed. I find there is…Continue

Can't believe docking is still legal in the US

I'm returning to My Corgi after a good few years and shocked and saddened to discover that docking is still legal in the US. Here in the UK it has been illegal since 2006. There is no good proven reason to cut off a pet's tail. This was originally done for working/herding Corgis. Docking for cosmetic reasons is totally unjustifiable. Is there not a body in the US regulating this practise, similar to The Kennel Club here in the UK.Apart from anything else , the Corgi tail is a thing of beauty!See More

A salute to a real Welsh Welsh corgi from the diaspora.

Perhaps envious of Fox's luxuriant tail, Al regenerated his own!  A biological curiosity (just in time for April 1).

Welcome Gillian and Fox! Little Fox looks like a handsome little guy and I love his tail! All mine have no tails but their puppies will now keep their tails, I can't wait!
I bet he'll love being able to go places with you!

Hi Gilly
Am so pleased you finally found your corgi, and to think it was Reggie that brought this together. He is well loved in his new home and I am sure that your Fox will be in yours.
Welcome to the Corgi Club!!!!

So happy to hear you found such a wonderful puppy. Next time we are in Bristol we will have to come visit. Just got back a few weeks ago. Our Chepstow would love to fly over with us. His goal is to become the official "corgi" at our son's Pub. Although it is an Irish pub "Seamus O'Donnells" Chepstow thinks he would make a wonderful pub dog.

Welcome! Love the name too. Pem's with their tails look so much like foxes! Cats are particularly frightened of my pup Potus, I think they think he's a fox. Glad to see a UK Corgi on here, I'll be in England next year and hope to see them about- although from what I've read there aren't that many in the UK. Hope you enjoy the site!
