Cute Overload :D
Wait up, we’re coming with you…
No, seriously, give us two seconds…
Honest, we’ll catch up, just hold your horses…
Oh my, Corgi cuteness and the stubbular of legs first thing in the morning. I don’t know if I can handle the cute……………… *thunk*
Corgis on a treadmill? Now that’s what I call a running joke. Poor things have literally worked their tails off.
Thought for a second there would be a third and I was breathlessly waiting to see how that would work . . .
Exsqueeze me, Corgi-os, but since nobody’s left in the Owl Lounge at this hour, I weel post thees here :
How cute EES THEES ?
trot trot trot trot trot trot trot
Honestly, are corgis the happiest-looking dogs ever?
Hmmm…sounds like somebody needs a nail-clipping! (sing-song voice).
In other news, soooo stubbular….
Treadmilling the dogs is what that dog whisperer guy recommends for wearing out your overly hyper canine (“a tired dog is a good dog”). I have always felt like it looked a little hazardous — have you ever seen someone FLY off the end of a treadmill!? — but I have to say these little dudes look happy. I wonder how fast they are going? My son has been begging me to put one of our dogs on my treadmill because she’s a little tubby, but I am afraid of hurting her!
YAY corgis R sew sweet-lookin’ !!
Awww, they seem so happy :D
They are Corgalicious!
@Poohbear, holy carp!
3rd li’l Corgi is like me: looks at physical exertion and just says “why?” :mrgreen:
Two weeks later they recreated Ok Go’s Here We Go Again.
Poohbear-that is amazing! See, it’s owls and not lions that are kings of the animal world!
I sincerely hope those corgis were rewarded with biscuits after their workout. *points and jumps up and down* Look at teh leetle legs! I love the corgis!
Corgi Aerobics! Cute!!
I suspect even her majesty the queen would be amused.
I love the tap dancing sound of their claws, aclickitty klickitty klick.
Um. I wonder if my parents bought some corgis (and a treadmill) without telling me. That looks suspiciously like their red shag carpet and brown wood panelling from their early 70s house.

Drat! Awaiting moderation. I even tried to post my comment twice, with what-I-thought-was the offending word removed! Alas!
yes the legs are short but these little dogs were bred to herd cattle from Wales to London and other towns and cities in the middle of England, several hundreds of miles each way and months on the road at a time.
Where is this magical house full of mini corgios?! How many more do they have?!
One day, I expect my cat to do the same thing as these Corgs. Almost every night, he gets on the treadmill at some point or another and walks around on it. Any time we try to get near enough to turn it on, he jumps away, so we haven’t seen yet if he will walk on it. Some day…
“Your comment is awaiting moderation.”??!? When did this happen?
Hey there third little corgi, you can come and use MY treadmill anytime!
No fair! They have three corgis and I don’t even have one. Share!
We’ll have to change the name of this site to Moderation Overload soon :-(
Omg! Double corgi! Omg! It’s starting to look like a TRIPLE corgi!
My question is, does the third Corgi get to skip the daily workout? Or does he/she jump on next?
>>Honestly, are corgis the happiest-looking dogs ever?
CO is making me fall in luff with corgis more and more everyday. they are so jolly looking, aren’t they? and your first sentence makes me luff CO commenters more and more every day, too.
>>Drat! Awaiting moderation. I even tried to post my comment twice, with what-I-thought-was the offending word removed! Alas!
good try! “shag” would have been my guess, too!
perhaps the entire colour* scheme was offensive :)
>>these little dogs were bred to herd cattle from Wales to London
really?! what was the advantage of short legs? that seems crazy!
@Sharpy– better to duck kicking cow hooves.
yes,Theresa! dodge the hoofs and nip at the legs of the cows to keep them moving,the Queens Corgi’s have been known to do it too.
CORGIS! On a treadmill…! Cute! ‘Nuff said.
Hey! Is there room for the third Corgi?!
because of my position at the source of all the bs?
Need toenails trimmed.
Okay, I never look this happy on the treadmill. Evah.
Must be a Corgi thing.
Lol, I’m surprised no one has mentioned the adorable single flapping ear.. I was mesmerized =D
And padfoot, it’s not dangerous if you do it carefully.. Humans have a much higher center of gravity than dogs, plus we’re on two legs when they’ve got 4 (obviously), so its unlikely that they’d do a total wipe-out. Not to mention, when people go flying off a treadmill it’s usually from doing something stupid like going too fast. If you start off slowly, work your way up to a moderate pace for the dog, he should be fine. I don’t own dogs myself, but every situation of a dog on a treadmill I’ve seen involves them going at a steady walk or jog, not a flat out run. And don’t leave him unattended obviously, since they don’t have the capability to *stop* the treadmill to get off, which is where they might take a tumble.
oh. yeah. i remember now. the corgis… the cows… not all about me…
i’m tempted now to start referring to myself as a queenly corgi, keeping the herds moving along. would that be wrong?
@ sharpy – Just don’t nip me ankles, mum.
i will do my very best, but if i slip up, please give me a big disapproving look. i react very well to shame. :)
–sharpig (i’ve seen ‘babe’ 9 times, so feel free to cuff me with a ba-ram-ewe or any other hoggety silliness to set me straight.)
BTW, in many places treadmills specifically for dogs are illegal. Apparently they’re also used for training fighting dogs.
Coach is giving a pep talk as they jog back onto the football field.
OK, we need a second half comeback.
I want a bump and run, then a draw play to the end zone.
Tighten up on defense and go for the blitz.
Don’t look but there’s the commish.
OMG! Those lil legs! :D
also ‘sharpey’ I suspect that the short legs were not always as short as they are today! Mankind has created some very exagerated dogs especially over the last 50 years, look at old paintings and the ‘same’ breeds can be almost unrecognisable.
Haha, the pup on the left isn’t even breaking a sweat – walk in the park…
>>BTW, in many places treadmills specifically for dogs are illegal. Apparently they’re also used for training fighting dogs.
that’s very sad, but apparently, in san francisco, it’s true. my rat terrier, spike, relied on a water treadmill for post-op therapy. it was the first time i’d seen him walk in over 6 months.
Happy looking Corgis must be experiencing that “runner’s high” that I keep hearing about but have never, EVER felt for myself.
The one on the left looks like a fluffy – I know, because I have one.
OMG! The one flappy ear! The longer haired Corgi!
I didn’t even know there were long haired Corgis. I think I like them even better than the fantastically adorable reg’lar ones!
Oh. My. Goodness.
Play them both at once and you have a Busby Berkley number with Corgis in it!
Toooo cute!!! They are so happy.
Corgi: “hey, we keep trotting here, but that water dish is not getting any closer…what’s up with that?”
Heart! Heart! Heart! Heart! Heart eyes! Hearts in my eyes! Cute sweet corgis!!! Heart!
