Are other breed owners as devoted as Corgi owners?

I look at all the posts on this site, and all the Corgi events (the Florida picnic expects 200 corgis!), and I wonder if other breed owners are as devoted.

I'm sure there are sites devoted to other breeds, but have no idea how many and to what breeds.

Your thoughts?

I feel like other owners of breeds always try to one up each other. But with all my dealings with other Corgis and owners... we all just love the breed! Each Corgi is so unique....you can't help but love all Corgis, whether they are yours or your neighbors.
I do agree with jane, I think owners of Corgis are just as special as the breed b/c we love all there funny Corgi-isms!
No matter how bad of a day I'm having, my pembroke can always make me smile!

Every where me and Sinatra go EVERYONE has to touch him. When I go out with my doberman mix the reaction is quite the opposite. They shy away and even cross the street! I think it has to do with the adorible fluff, that little smile, the way they light up when they meet anyone, their tiny little legs and of cours THE NUB. No one can resist it and it doesn't help they ham it up and know when they are the center of attention.

My friend, who own a corgi mix, says you can't help but love the under dog, and as small as they are corgi's can go under almost any dog. I think she's right. You can't say no to a dog, who despite being small. Is not a small dog. They have more personality then their bodies can hold.

I never thought I would be THIS obsessed about a dog breed but they are AMAZING little rascals.

I think Corgis and their owners are (pun) a breed apart. As I left PetSmart with Rafa today, a couple in the parking lot yelled out, "we have a corgi, too!" I don't think Lab or GSD owners do that. Corgis are such a unique blend or smarts, work ethic and hilarity. Usually work-oriented means serious. Corgis are the opposite––they are born comedians, and everything about their looks, the way they play, lie down, sleep, and ah-roooo when waking is so funny and unique. And of course, their owners are special because they're smart enough to choose to own corgis. So let's hear it for Corgis and their owners! Both a breed apart!

They are just too cute that's why.

There are other dog breed web sites but I have not seen anything like Mycorgi. Great job, Silvia and Sam! Plus we have also noticed that our corgis draw so much really friendly attention. I think between their short stature and natural smiles they just cause people to smile. I love that part!

I agree with you Jane and Doug... and after our stroll down Duval Street last Sunday and experiencing the reaction of so many people to our two I believe there is a special attraction to the Corgis. I mean.... people RAN up to us asking us to stop so they could pet them, take their picture and ask all kinds of questions about them. I, by the way, promoted the Florida Corgi Picnic and Mycorgi.com to each and everyone who stopped us!

The PWC is the fourth breed of dog I've owned. There are web sites, blogs, and groups for every breed imaginable but there does seem to be something different about Corgi owners. I can't imagine now not owning a Corgi. I'm thoroughly addicted to the little guys after owning three of them...or being owned by them.

We own a mini-Dachshund that we love dearly along with Gromit, and while I've visited doxie forums they seem to have a different sort of whimsy and warmth than MyCorgi and other Corgi sites have. Doxie owners can be pretty crazy though, just google "Wiener Dog Nationals" to see!

I've long noticed that the public responds to Corgis differently when we're out walking. Something about the Corgi's stature and natural smile seems to draw people in. I always figured that if Santa Claus owned a dog it would be Corgi. I really can't properly explain it but yes, I think Corgi owners are a different breed themselves.

My thought is that there others devoted to other dog breeds are but I wonder if corgi owners are a special breed of people also? One's who love an independent, talkative and sometimes stubborn strange looking dog who has their own ideas....just my thought!
