Nap Time with ZuZu the #Corgi!





A mid-day siesta sounds perfect right about now, don't you think?





Catching Up With CorgiPals

Good morning Corgi Nation, and welcome to my weekly guest spot on The Daily Corgi! I am your host Paige K. Davis, founder of CorgiPals. As you know, every week I do a guest post to keep you up to snuff with the goings-on in the CorgiPals world.

First, I'd like to thanks everyone who has shown support for sweet Shaye. She now needs only $280 to reach her goal!!

Next, I'd like to share that Nia's campaign has also received a lot of wonderful support. She needs only $125 to reach her goal now!



That about wraps it up for this week! Oh, and don't forget ... CorgiPals has a new company goal that we are trying to reach. We are trying to get our Facebook page to 15,000 "likes" by the end of 2014. We currently need only 1,578 more fans! Please spread the word to help us reach our goal! Remember, every person who knows about CorgiPals is one more soldier in our army fighting for Corgis in need all over the globe! Keep on Corgi'n on!

The First Ever Kentucky #Corgi Meet-Up Wrap Up!




On June 28, 2014, the Kentucky Corgi Meet-Up group convened for their inaugural get-together. 




Roughly twenty-two Corgis (four Cardigans, one Corgi mix, and seventeen Pembrokes) and their humans (with some non-Corgi siblings) met at Wellington Dog Park in Lexington for a few hours of frapping and Corgi camaraderie. While most of the low-riders came from Central Kentucky, one couple travelled from Nashville, Tennessee to join the fun!





The Kentucky Corgi group, originally formed on MyCorgi.com, recently
launched their own Facebook page, to plan future meet-ups and share event photos. Feel free to join!




Rain or shine, this spirited crew was prepared with pop-up tents and umbrellas. Everybody went home with a prize, from tennis balls to Corgi zipper pulls, leashes to frozen pup yogurt, thanks to donations from local companies All Leashed Up, Neogen Animal Safety and Porter Productions


Gotta love a cool doggy-themed prize!


The group is already chatting about a date for the next meet-up and invites anybody in Kentucky to join them! They want to make this an annual (at least) event. 
For more information, e-mail Megan at MLArszman@yahoo.com.

Saturday Smiler: Lila!



The Daily Corgi is committed to diversity. Yes, breeds other than Corgis do exist. And lots of "Heinz 57's" too.They're all pretty much a bone-zillion kinds of wonderful.

So every now and then, a great face, a non-Corgi face pops up here, because I CANNOT RESIST IT. 





Lila here has two Corgi siblings. And I do believe there's a bit of a resemblance. That is a Corg-ish smile, yes? So she's today's honorary smiler. Even if she didn't resemble her sibs, I'd still have to consider her, because as I said, I CANNOT RESIST HER.

Thanks to Donna W. for the submission. I asked for smiler photos and she sneakily sent this one in. I like that kind of moxie, lady. 

Happy Saturday all!
