The better to hear you with, my dear!

June 6, 2012 | Filed Under Animals, Pet Photography 

If I were to do a mini-series featuring photos of  ”favorite dog ears”, the Corgi would definitely be included!  Are these not the best ears ever?  I think this little guy can pick up satellite radio with those big ears!  Oh and don’t try and whisper the word “w-a-l-k” when he’s around because he’s going to hear every syllable!  :-)   This is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which is the breed without a tail.  The other Corgi breed is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi and they DO have a tail.  Both are members of the Herding Group.  For a while I couldn’t remember which was which, but I came up with a goofy way to remember.  I always think about the Pembroke Welsh Corgi as being “broken” because they don’t have a tail.  Thus, the Pem”broke” Welsh Corgi is the tail-less breed!  Hey, it works for me and now I never forget!

    Thanks for the picture Betsy. Have to show you the picture of our Pembroke and Cardigan together – if you think the Pembrokes have big ears you should see the Cardigans! They are really good dogs – when we get another dog it will be a Corgi!

    I’d love to see pictures of your Corgi’s Lynn….they are one of my favorite breeds! I’ll have to look through my files for a Cardigan photo to post!
