(From last year's show.. I was too lazy to take photos this year!)
We live only a few blocks walk from where they have the car show, so I thought we might as well take Gibson and get him some excitement/exercise. Immediately when we got there we started hearing mumblings of, "Corgi! Corgi? Cor-Gee? Corgi! Cute Corgi. I like your corgi.." etc. as people were walking past us. We then ran into an older couple who had just had to put their 11 year old corgi to sleep and just HAD to say hi to Gibson. It was sweet, and they marveled at how thin he is (as did everyone else there, that made me feel good!)!
Next, I heard a woman saying, "Honey? Honey??", which I thought was directed towards a child..but was apparently meant for me. She told me she loved corgis and had never seen one before in person and asked if she could take a photo. I made Gibson pose and he took the cutest photo for her! She was completely giddy :)
Right after that, another man came up to us, and I thought he was going to ask us to not let Gibson so close to his car... but he was another corgi owner who had just had to put his corgi to sleep (and she was only a year old! :( ). He asked if he could please say hi to Gibson and then proceeded to get down on his knees and hug Gibson and play with him! It was really sweet, he was so excited :)
Soon again, after that, a couple came up to us while we were giving Gibson water and told us that they had 7 corgis at home. 7!! Could you imagine? She then asked me if Gibson was in agility and when I said no she seemed upset at me :)
We were only at the show 20-30 minutes and had all of these encounters. Isn't that crazy? There were a few others who had to say hi to him too. It definitely seemed like we were walking around w/a celebrity!
Do you have corgi encounters like this??
