Daffodil has been on a little vacation visiting her Grandma Marilyn down in San Diego. Grandma has a corgi named Ginger. Ginger and Daffodil love each other. Daffy is coming home this Saturday.
When we got our first corgis (Winston and Hyacinth) back in the mid-90s, few Americans we met knew what a corgi was, or had ever even seen one.
They are, of course, the awesome coffee table of dogs: low to the ground, sturdy, and hardworking.
Corgis are herding dogs, who nip at the heels of sheep, cattle, and sometimes humans to get them to go where they want them to go. When we got Daffodil last March, Claire would run screaming down the hallway as Daffodil herded her into her bedroom. (We had to put a stop to that, but it was funny while it lasted.)
I guess the best way to describe Daffodil is to say that she does not suffer from a lack of personality.
Now corgis are all the rage, and to my delight it is much easier to find corgi-themed artwork here, there, and everywhere. My friend Pam even bought me a little leather corgi keychain. Look how cute.
Here is a small sampling of some of the wonderful corgi art currently over at etsy.
But my favorite corgi art is usually right here in my own house. :)
