My First Corgi Mtg in Mt View

Last weekend Mummy and Daddy slept in late and we almost missed the corgi meet up at Shoreline Dog Park. Whew, fortunately they really moved fast and we got there in time to see to many doggies!!! New friends, pee, poo...sand...dirt... =P

Here's the sign at the parking lot... park park park.

Mummy and I stare at the huge fenced in area! This side is the small dog area...

Admittedly, i got too excited and let go before i even made it to the gate. But hey, i always got more! =)

We entered the large dog area first. There's so many different kinds! I never met many of these breeds before and they were all nice and friendly. Mummy even got a few kisses from some of them! (Mummy: its ALOT OF DROOL!!!! =P But they really are very friendly.)

Check this out! A watercooler for humans...and one for dogs! This was the pawsomest thing! You guys back home in Singapore should tell the NParks people to install this. =D

Oooo! Corgi alert! Everyone there thought i was a Cardigan Corgi cos of my tail. hee...mummy had to explain several times that i'm pure pembroke (ok, so i'm tall with a tail and extra large ears...but really. i am a pembroke) and i was born in Australia after they banned tail docking. So i got to keep my foxy tail. Like it? I love it!

See the little fella on the right of the pic? Isn't he brave? hee...

You smell my pee...I smell your pee...

Oh, meet Rondel (i think that's how to spell his name). He was "stalking" me for a while... exit stage left...

Exit stage right....

Run over to catch a quick drink! Slobber drool!

Time for some roughhousing with Rondel.

Whoopy! I miss this type of play. =P

I was having so much fun i had to do the rub-a-dub-dub!

Here's a close up of Rondel's head. He knew how to walk over to Mummy and ask for hugs. Cute fella. Hope to meet and play with him again soon!

Well, after all that excitement, i took a second poo (Mummy: fyi, he did a 3rd and 4th one too soon after). Erm, i seem to be feeling a strong piercing stare at my behind.... anyone else see it?

Oh, i peed at that fence too...not more than seconds later, these 3 fellas came by. The black lab took a wee over my wee. Bah.

Then he kicked up a nice sand storm...hee...funny!

Mummy said we gotta go to the small dog area soon so I checked out the picnic table first. Guess why? =P

Okok, time to go!

Oh look! More corgis! All Pembrokes with the cute short tail.

Look at these two...aren't they cute???? They are so small (like 75% my size) but they are also my age! And they are ball obsessed!


Daddy loves this pic. Flying corgi!

Hmm...why are they running towards me?

Happy corgis with long tongues.

Finally everyone got tired and these two are so smart they sat in the shade.

Well, it was a lot of fun. I ended it with a nice trip home and shower cos mummy said i rolled in the sand. Phooey.

what a fun day you had Benny! I didn't realize that about the pembrokes and Australia; I'm glad you got to keep your tail. you are a beautiful dog!

I'm glad you got to meet some new friends; hope you get to see them soon!

our corgi, Koda, is not very friendly with other dogs so unfortunately we have to avoid dog parks, though they always look fun to be at

Hi Benny and human friends, you are right that water points should be made availbale for the public here in Singapore, both for human and other animals, like canines and felines. just maybe the SPCA or the Canine Clubs may suggest this life-saving idea to the higher level.
I read how a big dog recovered from real sickness with just water and salt (
Thanks benny for sharing your adventures here and everywhere you may be, there is always a place for you and your human-family in our hearts. Move slowly and discover the fine details of wonder of wonders. WOOF! WOOF!

Glad you have some corgi friends over there, Benny. We kinda miss you too...

Hello Benny! Looks like you haven't wasted any time fitting in and making loads of new friends :) So happy to see Mummy enjoying herself too .....

A Linda told me that you're a "marker" dog .. hahaha ... from the photos I can see why ... four poos in one outing; you're too cute for words.

Tell Mummy we MISS HER!!! but not to worry as A Linda is doing a great job with her :)))

I loved the "flying corgi" too! What a great day... and ALL THOSE CORGIS. I think Mom and Robert would go into corgi overload. They are ALWAYS (like literally 20-50 times a day) telling us how "beautiful/cute/sweet/ etc." we are. Robert calls us "Smile Makers."

Do they have corgi days often? OC
