These sweet dogs may be short in stature, but they certainly aren’t short in personality, intelligence, or cuteness😘.
Although Cardigan Welsh Corgis and Pembroke Corgis look alike, they've actually considered to be two totally different breeds from two different ancestors.
Some say—if you look very closely—you can still see the marks of a fairy's saddle around the shoulders in a Pembroke Corgi's coat.
There's some debate around the meaning of "Corgi," but there are two main theories out there:
- The Welsh word "cor" means "to gather," while "gi" translates to "dog." Makes a lot of sense for a breed that's known for its champion herding skills, right?
- Alternately, the word "cor" translates to "dwarf" in Welsh—and, again, "gi" translates to "dog."
