Everything Corgi: Wit and Wisdom for Lovers of Cardis and Pems
I read this when it came out a few years ago, but just won another copy in a raffle, so was reminded of how much I enjoyed it. This “must have” book for all Corgi lovers was created to benefit CorgiAid, a nonprofit organization. Over fifty “Corgi people” contributed articles, stories, photos and artwork. Although the fictional short stories and some other articles are breed-specific, many of the sections in the book are applicable to all dog breeds and would be fun and useful reading for any dog lover and owner.
The first section of the book discusses finding a purebred dog from a reputable breeder, the differences between Cardigan Welsh Corgis and Pembroke Welsh Corgis, and the world of dog rescue. It is followed by a canine health and care section: talking to your vet, understanding dog foods, special diets, first aid, basic obedience training, raising a dog in the city. The “What Corgis Do” section covers activities such as dog showing, agility, herding, obedience, flyball, tracking, and Corgis as therapy and service dogs. There is a section on “Corgi Fun, Myth, and Magic”. Interwoven between the sections are short narratives from Corgi owners about the antics and activities of their pets. Oh, and adorable photos of the contributors with their Corgis.
Everything Corgi: Wit and Wisdom for Lovers of Cardis and Pems is a book created to celebrate two enchanting and thoroughly endearing dog breeds: the Cardigan Welsh Corgi and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and to benefit CorgiAid, a nonprofit organization that helps with extraordinary expenses and medical treatment for corgi and corgi-mix rescue. The 33 chapters tell you everything you need to know about Finding Your Corgi, Taking Care of Your Corgi, and What Corgis Do, plus entertaining and poignant personal stories, and a delightful collection of Corgi Fun, Myth, and Magic. This book belongs by your side whether you already share your life with a corgi or hope one day to find your special one.
