Local Celebrity

My dog stops traffic.  Literally.  It's usually just people rolling down their windows, yelling "I love your dog!" or "Cute Corgi!", but other times it gets a bit crazy.  The worst (or best depending how you look at it) was a few weeks ago when a woman in a HUGE van (think the size of a short bus) stopped diagonally across my street (while cars are trying to driving by) to tell me how much she loved my corgi and then went on to tell me all about her corgi at home..  Where she rescued him from (I think she said the Lakeshore Corgi Rescue), how old he was, how cute their personalities are, etc.   Pretty crazy, but I always enjoy talking to people about corgis and get excited when I find another owner in town (a lot of them tell me how much "smaller" he is than theirs).   I've found more of them than I thought I would too, considering I live in a pretty small town.  

Of course, I walk Gibson a lot and live in the downtown area of our town, so I run into a lot of people.  And Gibson has made a lot of friends because of it (and yes, my dog has way more friends than I do), most of which are kids and other dogs.  I've started hearing kids yell, "Hi Gibson!" whenever I walk by our park, and there are a few little girls a few doors down from me that always run out to pet him when we're by their house.  It's really cute and Gibson loves the attention (since you know he gets no love at home).  He loves saying hi to dogs most of all though.  If one of his dog buddies is in the near vicinity, he will lay down and wait for them to come greet him.  If they don't see him or don't come over, he will start pulling me in their direction and look at me as if to say, "Mommmm! I need to go say hi to my friendddds!"   

He's really ridiculous, but I guess I'm glad he's not antisocial... And who couldn't love this handsome little guy :)

Awww cute! I would stop you & want to talk too.

I never saw a Corgi before, until I saw Gibson, now I see alot of them!

Isn't it soooo cute when you hear kids from across the street yelling Hi to your doggy, I ♥ it!!!

he's so cute!! I love that he has such a following!! makes walks more interesting when people stop and say hi and then of course he has to say hi back to his friends.

most common question we get asked when we are walking is "is that a corgi??" I think people know about them but haven't seen too many in real life (at least here)

I was going to email you but I guess I don't have your email address; that's neat your mom works for a transcription company at home; it is a great career! The one I started with yesterday starts with an "S" and I worked for one that started with a "M" I don't want to give out too much personal info; she can always email me at Lv2Trnscrb@aol.com (and you can too) and I'll be happy to give out the whole names :)

betty

He is handsome, that's for sure! I get asked if my corgis are german shepherd crosses, go figure! Many folks are familiar with corgis, but many more are NOT! They laugh at the short little legs! But Corgis always bring a smile!

Aw! The same thing happens with our Yorkie lol. Corgi's are just so cute with a cute little personality and people love them!

All the best,

Gibson deserves lots of random Corgi love! Luna gets the same attention sometimes, but not to the extreme that Gibson does!

Thanks for following my blog :)

I also decided to follow yours because Gibson looks so adorable, and I think it's great that you have a blog dedicated to him. You also made me laugh a couple of times. I definitely want to hear more...

I am absolutely in love with your dog Gibson. I talk about him in conversatins with friends (they all look at me like I'm crazy). He is one of the cutest littl corgi's I've ever seen. I live in south FL and not many people own corgis here, so my neighbors are always asking about Whiskey, and our neighborhood kids love her too.
