Hi all,thought I'd share this with you. Last night we were on Ben's walk, we ran into a couple out for a stroll,the woman stopped and ask me "what kind of dog is that?",now Ben and I are used to these kind of questions and I am quite eager to explain about cardi's and corgis in general,so I started to tell her that he is a corgi,her hubby chimed in with"no no no , he's definitely not a corgi,maybe some kinda mix , but definitely not a corgi", so I tried to explain (very pleasantly), that Ben was a cardigan corgi, but this fellow wouldn't let me continue,then he chimed in with,"I've seen real corgi's, they are red and white, they are born without a tail,Haven't you ever seen the Queen's dogs?",by this time I was kind of stunned,I just said that Ben was a cardigan from a breeder, registered with the ckc to which he said " you got ripped off, you should get your money back,corgis don't have tails, they are red and white not black and white" , at this point I opted to bid adieu and exchanged parting pleasantries assuring that I would look into this obvious foul up, as we left I looked down at Ben, I swear he looked at me , shook his head and sighed. As a p.s.at the time I was wearing a jacket that has "Canadian cardigan corgi club" emblazoned on it!
