Seattle Corgis In Beast Mode

In Seattle the 12th Man is all abuzz about the upcoming Super Bowl. The Corgis, however, are in beast mode and they are a force to be reckoned with. With the possibility of the Seattle Seahawks bringing the Supper Bowl back home soon, the corgis of Seattle hit the town in their team colors to show…

Corgi Costume Parade

It was time for our corgi costume parade around Green Lake in Seattle, on Saturday, October 26.  We had a record turnout.  Over 130 people and too many corgis to county.  This event grows in size every year and is highly anticipated.  We even have our own news reporter that comes out to cover our events.…

Accidental or Deliberate?

Terms of Endearment? Love and Affection? or has she subtly figured out how to deal with hanging with a corgi. After spending the last few years watching the bond grow between my dogs (a corgi and a non corgi) I am thinking more the latter. My non Corgi, Lexus, knows that mortals are attracted to the funny looking little beast that she lives with, Austin.  They want to pet him, photograph him, and feed him first, although he is an anti-social, grumpy little man.  She knows , however, that she…

Austin and Lexus Go Back to School

Spring break and spring blossoms at the University of Washington spurred a visit to this institute of higher learning. Although already highly intelligent we came away feeling better educated. 

The highlight of our visit was discovering the group of Japanese exchange students enjoying their dinner of Dick's Burgers and Fries in the Quad. They dropped everything and…

St Patrick - The most celebrated Welshman in America?

So you thought the day belonged to the Irish Wolfhounds and the Irish Terriers?  Did you know the St Patrick was born in Britain and some historians believe his actual birthplace was Wales?

The St. Patrick's Day custom arrived in America in 1737, that being the first year it was publicly celebrated in Boston. Most Americans, and other folk across the world, assume that Patrick was Irish: not so, many scholars believe he was Welshman!

Patrick (Patricius or Padrig) was born…

So Where Were all the Corgis in The Pacific NW Today?

I bet many in this Pacific Northwest corner of the country were wondering  why their neighborhoods were so quiet today.  There was no barking coming from yards or houses as the unsuspecting passed by.  Silence. What could be wrong?  This is not normal.  Who is around that will alert us to the presence of strangers or squirrels, or blowing wind if not for the always on guard corgis. Will our neighborhoods be safe again.

Never fear, on this one day a year, all the corgwyn gather in…

Stairway to Heaven

I know the way to heaven is not supposed to be easy.  Life throws many boulders in your path that you must climb over. But with a little corgi encouragement, it can be attained.  Frankly, I think Austin was thinking more about the studly young men that easily passed us on the trail and the possibility of them packing beefy sandwiches in their packs and that if we didn't hurry to the top they would eat those sandwiches before we arrived.

The climb up (can you see the corgi)…

Bird's Eye View of a Corgi

These poor dogs don't have a clue where I am calling them from.  They never once looked up.

I'm at the top and there is no way I was climbing all those…

Why do you climb 3000 feet in 4 miles?

Not for the exercise, not for the views.

There are picnics at the top.  And when one group finishes, the next group will arrive. With more food.

It's amazing what a corgi remembers from one year to the next.  We haven't don't this trail since last summer, but he knew about a half mile from the summitt what to expect.  With great anticipation, my little dog who is content to follow by my heels strained on his leash for the final push to the top.  I only see him…

The Million Corgi March (or about 50 or so)

To celebrate Valentines day and the love of corgis, we staged a walk through lovely Magnuson Park in Seattle.  I think there were about a million corgis there.  It was a beautiful (at least for February) day and corgis of all ages, size and shape attended.  Happy Valentines Day everybody.  Gotta Love a Corgi!

I think we formed a line around the park.  Took a panorama shot to try and get everybody in,…

We had to reach the Top today.

After our big winter storm, we had an unseasonable warm and sunny weekend in Seattle.  Spring fever hit and I felt the need to get out and climb to the top of something. A lowland hike along a river just wasn't going to cut it today.  I needed a view and I needed to work for it.  I didn't want to get all geared up for snow, however, so I found the perfect place. Mt Walker in the Olympic National Forest.  It was a grinding 2000 ft elevation gain in 2 miles, but the trail was in good…

Corgi Bowl 2012 -Pems beat the Cardis 8-6

It was New Years Day at Discovery Park.  Time for a little corgi hike to start the new year.  It looked like the cardis were going to take an early lead, but then 2 more pems appeared.  All in all it was a great day in Seattle for a fun corgi meet-up.  The cardigans almost outnumbered the Pembrokes today.  But there ended up being 8 pems and 6…

Last weekend of Deer Hunting Season, but Squirrel Hunting goes year round

Took a lovely walk through the woods today.  My dogs made friends with a local hunter and his son, out enjoying the last weekend of deer hunting season.  Apparently the pickings are pretty slim.  (Quickly tied my bright fluorescent poop bags to my dogs collar to keep them from being mistaken for wild game.)

Squirrels, however, were out in force.  They seemed to take great pleasure in teasing and taunting.  Sitting just out of reach and jeering at the intruders.…

We found Al!

After a summer of combing the trails and mountains of Western Washington for Al, The Great Mountain Corgi,  we donned disguises and attempted a lowland, urban search.  Accompanied by a posse of costumed corgis and armed with the international call of the corgi, we made contact with the elusive canine.

Where are we this week, John?

I think I will just add some pictures of our weekend adventures and see if John Wolff can figure out where we were.  Two separate day hikes, total mileage about 16 miles, total elevation gain about 4000'.   Can you, John?

Saturday (10/8):…
