"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is. Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

There will be no living with them now...
Yes, the rumors are all true. Our Reinwood Corgis are officially movie stars! The film Hope Springs premiers in August. It stars Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell. The furry stars are Emma, Kaizey and Grant, three very beloved Pembroke Welsh Corgis. If people only saw the driveway 'auditions' at Mary Elizabeth's house. If I remember it was hot as blazes out and Stella and Halo were wicked imps that day. Luckily Grant stood in and in the film you will see Emma (the tri), Kaizey (small red & white) and Grant, the lighter red. We heard that Meryl Streep loved them up and they were very well behaved, thanks to Mary Elizabeth's expert dog training skills. Of course the Corgis have taken to wearing sunglasses and have begun practicing their pawtographs. There will be no living with them now. Can't wait to see the movie! Watch the trailer all the way to the end! Its where you will see the Corgis! ♥

There are many enchanted stone Corgoyles that stand watch over Corgilot Castle. Hang one in your own castle to ward off things too scary to think about (or to shoo away sinister Corgis that choose to use their powers for evil....) Do not be alarmed if your Corgoyle disappears from his pedestal. Methinks he shall return before sunrise....

The Christmas Corgi Employee Of The Month
Employee Of The Month
The Christmas Corgi has awarded Bailey Employee of the Month. Bailey has held many positions here at The Christmas Corgi throughout the years, modeling for artwork, posing for photographs to create listings for eBay and Etsy, and holding her paw on a ribbon to help tie the perfect bow on a package, to name a few. This month the voting was unanimous amongst her peers. Everyone decided that she should receive this month's honor. You see, Bailey is over 13 years old now and she has recently lost her hearing. Although she wonders why we have all become so silent, she has not let this break her stride or her Corgi spirit. She sleeps a little bit longer these days because sounds no longer disturb her sleep. She does report to work a bit late because she enjoys sleeping in and snuggling in Cathy's warm bed. However, when she decides to be on watchdog patrol, she lays vigilantly near the door to protect us all. She is a good girl and a loyal friend to all. For these reasons and many more, we are pleased to award Bailey Braveheart By The Sea, Christmas Corgi Employee Of The Month.
My dear friends sent me a box of these and they were so delicious that I had to share them with you. I called the company and they gave me this link for my Christmas Corgi Blog readers so we can get a 15% discount! You will not be disappointed, my little Corgettes. Fair warning: they will call to you from the fridge. But hey, strawberries and chocolate are good for you, right? The discount shows up after you have added them to your cart. xo xo ♥
