International Corgi Day June 4.

International Corgi Day June 4.

Did you know that June 4 is International Corgi Day? It's a special occasion dedicated to celebrating the beloved Corgi breed. I have grown up with Corgi's pretty much my whole life and currently own a 7.5yr old female Welsh corgi called Lizzie.

Why do I love Corgis?

Corgis are known for their adorable appearance, with their fluffy coats, perky (big) ears, and short legs. But it's not just their looks that make them so popular. Corgis are also intelligent, affectionate, and full of personality. 

Fun facts about Corgis

Did you know that Corgis were originally bred to herd cattle and sheep? Their low stature allowed them to nip at the heels of livestock without getting kicked. Despite their small size, Corgis are incredibly agile and energetic, making them excellent working dogs. In fact, Queen Elizabeth II is a famous Corgi owner and has owned more than 30 Corgis during her reign.

Another interesting fact about Corgis is that they come in two distinct breeds: the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. While they may look similar, these two breeds have different characteristics and histories. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is more popular and has a shorter tail, while the Cardigan Welsh Corgi has a longer tail and a more reserved personality.
