Corgi Picnic 2001

Thanks to Sylvia Berni for allowing us all to descend on her home! We had upwards of 15 or more Corgis and their associated people-friends in attendance on this overcast, but dry, Saturday afternoon in Kirkland.

Corgis & People, People & Corgis.

Did someone say TREATS?


I'm sure there are TREATS around here somewhere!

We had our own little "agility" competition. Paddington & Rusty, came in #1 & #2, both showing "the power of The Fluff!". Pictured here is Betsy with Ladybug.

Part of the "agility" portion was to put on a couple of items of clothing while doing the course. This is Missy with socks & a hat, looking very undisturbed by it all.

We also enjoyed a "musical chairs" like game of musical Corgis.

There was also a "hotdog race", which involved tossing a hotdog, and having your dog retrieve it without eating it first. Here we see a demonstration of what really happened to all of the hotdogs. Every dog was happy to bring it back ... inside their stomach. These are Corgi's afterall.

After all that work, a good romp & ball chase was required.

Corgis (& kids) always stay where they're supposed to, right? Then what about the upper garden? (3,606,532 bytes)

Corgis are such nice, quiet dogs. Right? (1,851,396 bytes)

A Corgi Afternoon

The first!

A sunny afternoon, and an impromptu gathering of Corgi owners we've met on-line. (Thanks Kris for starting this!)

The deck was the place to be for most of the afternoon:

Why? 'cause that's where the goodies were!

'round and 'round they went:

Did someone say goodies?

Corgi's & legs, Corgi's & legs...

One of the afternoon's stars was Rusty:

Vera, on the other hand, wasn't too sure about all these strange invaders:


We moved out to the back on the lawn for a while and while there I got the following:

Your hosts, the Three Amigos (or more commonly, the Three Stooges) tended to hang out with each other. (1,929,220 bytes)

A quiet moment...until Siri zooms by, Rusty gets into the act, and all must follow! (5,257,220 bytes)

A Corgi-Level view of the group relaxing...until Betsy decides to bark at a "figment", and all must follow! (6,676,484 bytes)
