It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Live...from Minnesota - Corgi Summer Olympics!!!

New World Records set by Competitors without Tails!!

Updated events have just been filed by the CPI (Corgi Press International) from Minnesota where the Corgi Summer Olympics are taking place this year. Senior Correspondent, K.D., reports on the action:

TRACK & FIELD COMPETITION
Charlie has been practicing running laps and I told him it paid off!  He won a SILVER Medal for his "SPEED" and ability to "LEAP" straight in the air and land on the other side of the finish line, without breaking stride.  He also is quite talented at kicking up a lot of dust to throw off the competition!

SPLISH SPLASH IN THE CORGI CUBE
Wilson has perfected the NEW swimming stroke that is done on land.  Have you all heard of this one?  It is an incredible new event called "Alligator Man"?  The dog is jumping up and down with his front legs and bowing at the same time while his mouth is snapping and he makes a little growling sound. Well, our own Mr Wilson seems to be quite a natural "alligator man".  You should see him in action!   The unbelievable movement landed him a SILVER MEDAL. We will see this guy again in 2012, and you better believe he's going for the Gold (Did somebody say Solid Gold...where's the food?)

NEW EVENT THIS YEAR - INTRODUCING,  "AND YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD DANCE - OLYMPIC STYLE!"
Kelly (Hey Gene Kelly look out! You aren't the only one that can dance!) Kelly won a SILVER Medal in FLOOR Exercises with his incredible "Foot work,"  complete with verbal expressions! The judge was quite impressed with this talented "Young" (in fact the youngest in the field) competitor. This one has a brilliant future ahead and we'll be looking for him again in 2012!

EMOTIONAL BEHIND-THE-SCENES STORIES, AN EXCLUSIVE AS TOLD TO CPI
Nolan competed in a very special class where most dogs could not enter.  It is a most special class and he excelled.   It was called the "HEART" contest.  No one else even came close.  This "Little Man" touched the judge's hearts and it was clearly visible by the tears in her eyes.   The amazing depth to this little guy is staggering.  Needless to say, he didn't have to stagger to the top of the platform, but hopped up with ease to accept his GOLD MEDAL! Nolan, you're our Hero!

I love this blog! The photos are great and the captions are so well-written! I've got a rescued Pem named Charlie- he's the best little guy ever!

Keep up the good work!
