In November 2015 The Kennel Club has altered the breed standard for the Cardigan Welsh Corgi as follows:
Colour: Acceptable colours are blue merle, brindle, red, sable, tri colour with brindle points and tri colour with red points.
All of the above with or without the typical white markings on head, neck, chest, underparts, legs and feet, white tail tip. White should not predominate on body or head where it should never surround the eyes. Nose and eye rims must be black. Liver and dilute colours highly undesirable.

It will probably be a while before the FCI-standard is altered accordingly.

17.04.2015 - 500 corgis invade California beach

A California beach was invaded over the weekend of 11-12 April 2015 by a terrifyingly cute horde of waddling corgis.
Around 500 of the fluffy, stubby pooches scampered onto Huntington Beach for the annual So Cal Corgi Beach Day, immediately melting the hearts of all humans there. Fans could hardly contain their excitement, tweeting and Instagramming the corgi orgy.
According to organizers, only 12 corgis attended the first Beach Day in 2012. But this time, the corgis were spread over nearly a mile of the coastline. With corgis coming from all over the country.


This cartoon appeared in the Birmingham Evening Mail after an American astronaut called at Buckingham Palace and presented a moon rocket for Prince Andrew. Welsh cartoonist Lewis Williams said: "I know perfectly well that the Queen's corgis are Pembrokes, but personally I prefer the ones with tails. Cartoonists get familiar with so many jokes, and I can never get out of my mind the one about "Every dog has his day, but a dog without a tail has a weekend."
Found in The Cardigan News-Bulletin 1972.
