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.

The AKC decided that their March madness contest wasn’t fair up until the end when corgis went in strong to win it all. So, Corgi Nation, we have to win again. Best 2 of 3, hopefully they don’t change the rules again to best of 5, but it wouldn’t matter — because corgis would win every time.

The Corgi Nation is powerful. And loud. Just like corgis.

Kipper sits pretty and then gets distracted.

Looks like Stark made a new friend at the vet. Maybe I should let this relationship blossom in hopes that I’ll get my own Catdog out of it.

Look at that drool!

Pudge is a huge drooler. I’ve never seen another corgi drool so much until now. 

Fun fact: corgi drool adds some “shine” to hardwood floors. Step 1: have corgi drool. Step 2: clean up corgi drool. Step 3: buff to a nice new shine.
