Here in the US, it seems most people believe that they are born without tails. I know I did at first! Sidney is a wonderful ambassador and he educates people on the Natural Corgi. Almost everyone we talk to says they like the tail better...but the breeder's groups are so strong here, they keep any change to their "breed standard" from happening. I am glad to see that several other countries have taken the stance that tails should not be docked and I hope that some day it will happen here as well.
