Is it me or are Corgis getting EVEN STUBBIER!?

People, we’ve always known Corgis are basically a series of nubs, but the stubbiness is getting out of hand in recent submissions. I give you:

Exhibit A:
At first, things look relatively normal here—but let’s take a closer look.

Exhibit B:
As you can see this puppeh is mostly stubs, held together by a large mass called a "body".

Exhibit C: [Jury gasps]
See what I mean? He’s almost one large pup mass with six nubules (four ‘feet’ and two ‘ears’)

Exhibit D: [Jury dumbfounded at evidence]
This picture prolly explains it best. I imagine this guy can only slither across the floor at this point.

A Whirlwind Romance

This is a true story, about how love and kindness can carry us safely through adversity.  If this story has inspired you, please forward this message to ten of your friends and share your blessing.

(lonesome harmonica solo plays in background)

It’s the story of Rusty, a poor pooch whose home was flattened by a tornado.  Homeless and lost, Rusty was picked up by a kindly stranger with a car …

Sure, it's wreckage, but it's CUTE wreckage. It's PINK, see?

… where he met this little lady, another sad-eyed refugee with nowhere to go — and no one to love.

(forlorn oboe solo plays in background)

But Fate had other plans.  A tornado may have turned their lives upside-down, but the power of Love set things right again, and the pair became best friends.  And so they drove through the ravaged countryside …

(... and now we bring in the string section, maybe a harp glissando ...)

… and were soon joined by another dog, and … a cat.  Okay, now I’m not sure what to do here.  I mean, I was trying to work this whole romantic angle, but now … um … well, we can say that the other dog stopped by to borrow a cup of sugar, and …

... and the cat is, like, the wacky neighbor character ...

Oh, come on!!  Now I’ve got a cat and five dogs!  Sure, it’s nice that this guy is picking up all these homeless animals and all, but he’s totally screwing up my narrative!  All right, you know what?  Don’t send this to ten people, see if I care!  Man, this blows.

Oh, mellow out, Hemingway.  We got a seat right here; jump in.

Are we inspired yet, Rusty O.?

Oh Yah, You Betcha! (wink!)

"… and in my travels, it’s been such a genuine thrill and honor to meet so many of you hard-working, down-to-earth, honest-to-Betsy, meat-and-potatoes, tough-as-nails folks, what I like to call the ‘real dogs’ that form the best part of this great country of ours.

"Why, over there, I can see Carl the Car-Chaser, and there’s Fred the Frisbee-Catcher, and Bob the Barker, and Steve the Snorgler, and Larry the Leg-Lover, and Ned the Napper, and Ted the Toilet-Drinker-Outer-Ofer …"

And golly, I'm just gunna miss alla ya so darn much!

Just six more days, Melissa F. the Sender-Inner …

And Now, Here’s Every Episode of Lassie Ever Made

"Whoa there, Lassie!  Why the big hurry?"

(Insert 'screeching tires' sound effect here)

"What’s that you say, girl?  Timmy’s fallen down a well?  And he’s broken both legs?  And he’s surrounded by poisonous snakes?!  And he’s sinking into quicksand?!?  And he’s down to three percent power on his iPod?!?!"

(Insert 'whimpering collie' sound effect here)

"I’m coming, Timmy!! I shall accomplish a daring and heroic rescue in my own particular idiom!"

(Insert 'Hanna-Barbera running' sound effect here)

Let’s hope the idiom doesn’t require any heavy lifting, Kira G.

Pup saves kittens from fire!

Most peeps would push others out the way during a fire, but not this pup. He stayed behind to make sure the kittens trapped inside got out safely.
