03.07.2019 - Ryzhiy, the Russian Police Dog
Ryzhiy is an 8 year old Pembroke Corgi working as sniffer dog for the Russian Police. He is the only Corgi in the Police K9 unit in the entire country. His main task is to search for illegal drugs and firearms.
In 2015, Ryzhiy became Russian obedience champion.
His owner Olga is a police woman and had originally bought him for her daughter, not planning to specially train Ryzhiy at all. But fate called when Olga needed a "special task dog"! She says Ryzhiy loves eating and playing which helps to train him to take the signal position if he finds drugs.
For 6 years he has been working at train stations and bus stops. Most police dogs "retire" at 8, but Ryzhiy is just getting started!

10.11.2018 Love makes a family
Ever since mom left to work overseas, my grandpa took care of me.
He stood as both my father and my mother.
It's a good thing my grandpa is cool.
When we take a bath it's always like a party.
Everyday we play at the park.
We also enjoy movie marathons.
My favorites are superhero movies.
It's really a good thing I grew up with him because he loves me so much.
I wish I could tell him how much I love him...
(The camera reveals why the narrator is off-stage)
Love makes family (mp4)
A German Shepherd, a Poodle and a Corgi died. All three stood before God on his throne, who asked them what they believed.
The Shepherd said "I believe in discipline, training and loyalty to my master." God said "Come and sit by my right side."
The Poodle said: "I believe in the love, care of my master and world peace!" God said "Come and sit at my left side."
The Lord then looked at the Corgi who said "I believe you're sitting in my place!"

The corgis (and their two-legged companions) marched from the Jefferson Memorial to the Washington Monument to mingle and play. It was probably the largest corgi meetup in the DMV area for the year.

Photo: Annie Leibovitz, 2016
Willow (top left), the Queen's last corgi who was almost 15, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday. He had a cancer-related illness and the Queen did not want him to suffer further. The other Corgi, Holly, died 18 months ago. Willow's death brings to an end a remarkable history between the Queen and corgis dating back more than eight decades. Willow was the last direct descendant from Susan, a birthday present for her 18th birthday. It's truly the end of an era. No wonder the Queen is left heartbroken. The only ones left are now the two Dorgis Vulcan and Candy.

Vermont Fish & Wildlife is excited to announce that we are reinstating the little-known "Corgi Reintroduction Program." Biologists previously attempted to reintroduce this native species in 1969, but the effort failed.
Corgis will be released throughout Vermont in the hopes that they will establish a thriving wild population. They were once a top predator feared even by mountain lions, but their population was decimated in the early 20th Century due to a captive-breeding program for the British Monarchy.

11.02.2018 - Has Netflix saved the Corgi?
When Netflix commissioned The Crown, the most expensive TV series ever made, the fortunes of an old Welsh dog breed were hardly at the forefront of their minds. But the popularity of the series, which broadcast its second season last year, has inadvertently led to a resurgence in searches for the endangered Welsh corgi. According to the Kennel Club, interest in the Queen's favourite dog breed shot up by 22 per cent last year, with registrations of corgis rising from 393 in 2016 to 456 last year. In 2014, when they were put on the club's endangered breeds list, just 274 were registered in the UK.

Waiting at the Door
Today you did the bravest thing
One of Ben Stassen's Brussels-based nWave most creatively ambitious projects to date is the upcoming 3D animated adventure tale "The Queen's Corgi" written by Rob Sprackling and Johnny Smith. Budgeted at more than $20 million, the film follows the adventure of Rex, the British monarch's most beloved dog, who loses track of his mistress and stumbles across a fight club with dogs of all kinds confronting each other. During his epic journey to find the queen again, Rex falls in love and discovers his true self.
The film will be in the spirit of Disney's canine classics such as "The Fox and the Hound" and "Lady and the Tramp" and is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2019.

24.07.2017 - Has the Queen Adopted a New Corgi?
It appears Queen Elizabeth isn't quite finished with her corgis after all. Despite saying that she did not want to take on any additional pets back in 2015, she has - reportedly - adopted a new dog: a nine-year-old corgi named Whisper.
Whisper belonged to the late Bill Fenwick, who served as Sandringham's gamekeeper, and the Queen took him (and a Bichon Frise) for walks when Bill passed away in January. The Queen was close with Bill and his wife who died several years ago. The Fenwicks often kept and trained the Queen's corgis. It's even said that they were given a two-story home so that the corgis could practice going up and down stairs in anticipation on getting on and off airplanes. After the Fenwicks did so much for her dogs, it seems natural that she might welcome Whisper into the fold which at present comprises Willow the corgi and the dorgis Vulcan and Candy.

02.01.2017 - First Dog of California Died at 13
Sutter Brown, the Pembroke corgi belonging to California's Governor Jerry Brown became ill in October and underwent emergency surgery. However, a particularly aggressive form of cancer could not be entirely removed.
Sutter returned home, and to the Governor's Office. He was outside the Governor's Mansion to greet trick-or-treaters on Halloween, and accompanied the governor to vote on Election Day.
But in recent days his health had deteriorated rapidly and it was decided to let him go. On 30 December, he passed away peacefully with the Governor and First Lady at his side and was laid to rest at the family ranch in Colusa County.
Sutter is survived by Colusa Lucy Brown, who joined the Browns as a puppy in 2015. The Governor's Office said she would assume Sutter's duties as first dog.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
All through December Madame Tussauds in London had dressed the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Princess Kate, and Prince Harry, as well as the Corgis in rather fancy Christmas sweaters.
The royal family had given permission for the exhibit as part of the Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day campaign on December 16, which provides everything from education to clean water for children around the world.
Needless to say that the waxen royal family was a great success among the public.

19.10.2016 - Concern about California's First Dog
Sutter Brown, the 13 year old Corgi of Jerry Brown, Governor of California, and his wife Anne Gust Brown, has fallen critically ill with cancer. Sutter has been a very important part of the Brown's family since 2010, as well as the governor's office family. He has since become one of the most popular figures in California politics.
Sutter's health began to quickly deteriorate on Friday, 14 October, and he underwent emergency surgery shortly thereafter. While Sutter pulled through surgery, the vets were not able to remove all of the cancer and his condition remains critical.
However, according to a tweet from Anne Gust Brown in the evening of 17 October, Sutter came home and "rolled in the grass, sniffed all his favorite places and then passed out (fell asleep)".

20.03.2016 - Pembroke Welsh Corgi no longer at risk in Great Britain
Official pedigree dog figures show that the Pembroke Welsh corgi experienced such a boom last year that the breed is no longer at risk.
The number of Pembroke Welsh corgis had dropped so low in recent years that the Kennel Club feared they were in danger of dying out in its country of origin. Two years ago there were only 274 Pembroke Welsh corgis registered with the Kennel Club but numbers increased by more than a third in 2015 so it is no longer classed as a vulnerable native breed. Instead, it will be on the club's Watch List, which monitors breeds with less than 450 new puppies.
The Cardigan Welsh corgi, on the other hand, with only 124 registrations is still at risk in its country of origin, whereas in the Scandinavian countries the breed is much more popular than the Pembroke.

A puppy should not be bought on an impulse but after careful consideration. To make the public aware of this, the Danish Kennel Club arranged a happening with TV coverage at Copenhagen Central Station on 14 October 2015. X-pens were set out on turf where the puppies of various breeds could play and rest. The event attracted wide interest among passers-by. Adults and children were allowed to pet or cuddle the puppies while the breeders and DKK representatives answered questions and gave advice. The two station policemen were so charmed by the Pembroke puppy that one day you might see a Corgi herd demonstrators and criminals!
