(Photo: Mr. Sam Vimes showing off his sit pretty)
First on behalf of Nicole (Emma’s mom) and myself, I just wanted to congratulate everyone that has participated in ESBC so far. The first week was super successful and it was great to see everyone’s pups improve through-out the week. Great job, everyone!
Challenge Two: Sit Pretty
Expert Village - Sit Pretty
Zak George - Sit Pretty
Clicker Training Tutorials - Sit Pretty w/ clicker
If you run into trouble - post or ask a question on Tumblr! If we can’t help, someone out there will know!
Tips: Remember to keep training sessions short (no longer than 15 minutes) and fun! This is play for everyone.
How You Can Show Off on Sunday:
If you have Tumblr, and are going to upload to your blog. Please use the tag: ESBC . We have been liking and reblogging all the posts using that particular tag and will continue to do so through-out the challenge.
If you don’t have Tumblr, we will turn on Submit on Sunday so that you can post to Emma or us a link/pictures/video of your tricks. If you want you can also leave a comment on Disqus
You guys, I was really proud of how many corgis participated in the weekly challenge! It is fun teaching your corgi a new trick (and at times, really frustrating). But once they have it, you AND your poopster feel really great.
Sit pretty might be hard for the long ones out there. Pudge still doesn’t really have the muscle strength to “sit pretty” after months of trying (he’s really, really long). But he’s getting it! So don’t give up! Good luck!
Corgiaddict.com is experiencing some technical difficulties. You can still access corgiaddict via tumblr or corgiaddict.tumblr.com. I’ll keep you all updated once the domain is back up.
PS - Thanks to froggie for this much needed gif.

(technology fail, should work now!)
Dearest Darlingest Corgiest of Addicts,
You all have no idea how much I love being CA. Every single day you all amaze me with such wonderful submissions, amazing thoughtful emails, creative ideas and fantastic challenging questions. I LOVE hosting this tumblr and I LOVE interacting with all of you. I am so sorry life is crazy right now and I am behind on posting quite a few pictures and responding a few emails.
BUT! Without further delay I present to you … the dancing corgi lobster duo. When I saw it on my droid while out in the car with my family getting the turkey — I shrieked with such delight I almost caused an accident. I was so surprised, amazed and touched that this awesome totally ridiculous corgi dancing with lobster celebration landed in my inbox. In my eyes — it’s perfect. I didn’t know it was exactly what I wanted until I saw it. I hope you guys giggle just like I did.
PS - there are FOUR corgi + lobster dance moves, 2x2, scroll down to see the pair on the right.
MOAR about the dancing lobster corgi duo artist:
My name is Angela Kau-Forsberg. I was born in Milwaukee and seem to be migrating northeast the last 7 years. I graduated from University of Wisconsin Stevens Point with a BA Fine Arts. My husband and I married November 29, 2009 and we are about to celebrate our 26th birthdays together on January 9 — we are 7 hours apart in age! Recently, my husband was laid off and currently we are both unemployed. Although I do have my shop, Unlimited Glass Works, on etsy (with an awesome Corgi claws painting for sale!).
I draw, paint, sculpt corgis because of two reasons: growing up I fell in love with Ein from Cowboy Bebop, and my mother had a Dachshund/Corgi mix named Trudi that acted VERY corgi like.
Someday, when my life is stable, we will have a corgi of our very own. Until then, I will just keep making corgis (not that I would stop making them once I have my own corgi). The site where I display my general work is http://caresse-par-la-lumie.deviantart.com/. I mostly do what makes me happy.
for the corgi web artists in the house
Some of you may have noticed… I lost the lobster corgi back ground (literarily lost it in the gigabytes of corgis!). But I think it’s time for a change.
I’m thinking … lobsters and corgis. In exchange for a little homemade banner, your site will have a permanent link on my homepage. It’s not much, but that and corgi pictures is all I have to my name.
Send me an email + include a picture/graphic/link to what you designed/created. I know you guys are creative!
peace, love and corgum,

PSA: credit where corgis are due
you do realize without corgi pwners, we would have no pictures or evidence of how cute corgis are? there would be no corgi pictures if it were not for their fearless documenting pwners.
on st. laborious day, i thank you corgi pwners. for without you, i would not be able to spread the addiction.
i implore you, if a corgi is yours and you don’t want to share the love, i will delete the post if you email me at: corgiaddict at gmail. alternatively, if there’s a corgi up and you want me to link it to you as “Corgi pwned by Happy CorgiPwner” — I will be more than happy to do so as well. easiest to send me the link so I can correct the error or give me some key words to search my corgiaddict tumblrs. i usually respond within 72 hours (unless I post a temporary leave of absence for vacay or what have you).
i am an addict, i act on compulsion to share the corgis. i am also human and prone to error. i sincerely apologize if i offended anyone with my corgi addiction, i try to give credit where credit is due but there are so many corgis and i am a poor documentarian. i am attempting to implement a better system to give credit where credit is due.
i make no profit from this tumblr and i do not intend to ever make a profit from sharing corgis with the world. i just want the world to admire these wonderful stumptastic creatures. i want to share the love i get from corgis with all of you darling addicts.
indebted to all the lucky corgi pwners out there for capturing these amazing creatures,
in corgi we lust,
Goooood morning corgi addicts! Need your fix eh? Sad to say it, but Corgi Addict and bringing the joy of corgis to all the naminal lovers of the world has sadly fallen off the front page for the recommendations in the animals category. Fuckyeahsharks? Bitch please. Corgis are way more fierce. They can kill with cute via trans-ischemic cuteattacks. FACT.
Sooooo if you are addicted and you know it and you really wanna show it… click this link: http://www.tumblr.com/directory/recommend/animals/corgiaddict
Thank you kindly, dear addicts, I just want to share the healing power of the corgi with the world.
This pic totally reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes. Which totally would’ve been EVEN better if Hobbes were a stuffed corgi. Think about it.
