READY, SET, CORGI!
(A Corgi Addict Exclusive)

When Ema Gismarvik saw the promo video for the 1st Annual Bellingham Slam Corgi Race (https://vimeo.com/90162236) and realized that not only was this a stumpy reality, but that it going to happenin her own home town she actually teared up.  We should all be so lucky as to have this kind of magic in our own backyards.

Paul Burke is the man who made it all happen.  As the owner of a corgi himself, a seven-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Ray, he is well aware of their fuzzy appeal — corgis are everywhere on the Internet, loved by everyone, and who can blame them?  “Anytime I walk my dog, there are so many people gawking, coming up to us.”

As the vice president of sales and marketing for the Bellingham Slam, the local basketball team, Paul realized the irresistible appeal of corgis could be a benefit to the Slam.  Without a super huge marketing budget to get the word out and get more people to the games, corgis became the answer.  Not everyone might think “corgis” when thinking about basketball, but Paul realized the potential and the rest is history.

Partnered up with his roommate, Brian Haugh, they made corg-movie magic to promote the event.  The video itself got quite a bit of attention not only locally but all over the country with people reblogging, liking, and sharing with friends.

Make corgis?

abyssofnonsense:

I was in my English class and some guy in my class said they don’t like corgis. My teacher got mad and said “you shut up! They’re like chicken nuggets with little stubby legs! They’re sunshine wherever they run.” She paused and then she mumbled “…don’t like corgis. Those are fighting words.”

This teacher needs to win Teacher of the Year.

Puppies Confirm Construction Project Is On Schedule
Corgi builders Wolfgang, Hambone and Cupcake, of Three Corgis Developments, held a press conference this morning to dispel rumors that their CuddleDome construction project had fallen behind schedule and gone over budget.
“They assured the public that the project is moving forward as planned and will meet its May completion date,” said Thom Yasmuz, a reporter for the NY Daily News who has been covering the project since its inception.  The $310 million CuddleDome will be the world’s largest indoor cuddling arena when it opens later this year in Brooklyn, NY.
According to Yasmuz, the dogs did admit that reports of excessive napping on the job were accurate, but assured that they had built plenty of napping time into their initial project plans.  ”There’s a lot of napping going on over there,” said Yasmuz, “but they don’t see it as excessive.”
Indeed.  Wolfgang reportedly had trouble keeping his eyes open during the press conference.
