Hi, I'm Rhys the corgi! I was born on September 6, 2013. I love cuddling, kisses, playing, being a rascal, and looking for (mis)adventures. I'm a So Cal corgi and looking forward to meeting all my new corgi buddies at meet-ups! :)

Scoutsby had a lot of fun hanging out with their corgi buddies yesterday at the doggie water park. Here they are with kumathecorgi, bebopthecorgi, omelettethecorgi, rhysthecorgi, and Foxy (Omelette’s sister). 

I must have taken like, 25 of these photos on my phone hoping that I’d get at least ONE good group photo. It was quite the ordeal getting them all to pose nicely, and getting them all to stay in one place. (And I think Kuma’s dad volunteered to sacrifice his fingers and be the designated ‘treat giver’ for the photos.)

We didn’t do too badly considering how many there were haha. Thanks to Kuma’s dad, too, for being the sacrificial treat-giver! :)

Contrary to his expression, I’m sure he’s pretty excited that it’s USC game day. Beat the Bulldogs!

Pups at the Park at Dodgers stadium yesterday with some of our corgi friends: rhysthecorgi, bebopthecorgi, geordilacorgi, Winston, and Aqua

A fun and great night!

We had tons of fun with our friends at the Dodgers’ Pups at the Park night yesterday! (Thanks to my sister for the photo.)

[To no one’s surprise, Rhys took a big poop on the field during the pre-game pup parade. Nailed it.]

My family and I are thinking about getting another dog and a corgi was one of the suggestions. We've read that they're vocal dogs. We have a German Shepherd (who are vocal dogs), but ours isn't that vocal compared to what people might consider a "vocal breed." Based on your pictures, I've seen you've been around a lot of corgis. Would you say they're pretty vocal in general? Is Rhys very vocal?

Hmm, this is a great question!  Generally, I think it’s true, corgis are known for being very vocal, especially if you get a large group of corgis together, e.g., So Cal Corgi Beach Days, and it becomes a crazy frapping derpfest haha.  I think being vocal is the norm for corgis since they utilize it during herding, and they’re also super alert so they make great watchdogs.

But, I also think every corgi is unique in his/her own way that it’s hard to say whether yours will be vocal or not (just like how some corgis are more cuddly than others).  Overall, I’d say Rhys isn’t extremely vocal, at least not without a reason.  He’s mostly vocal when he wants attention, is being stubborn/demanding, or is trying to tell us he wants something, e.g., if he’s on the couch and he drops a toy he’s playing with, in the morning to wake me up to give him breakfast, etc.  He’ll bark, too, at dog parks when he’s ‘herding’ the other dogs, or when he gets too excited about playtime with corgdad.  But if he hears or sees something happening outside, he usually runs to investigate rather than bark at it (he :loves: sticking his nose into everything of course!).  He won’t usually bark randomly at nothing haha.  He does like to make funny noises, like boofing and snarfling, so sometimes it feels like we’re having a conversation.  He always cracks me up.

Hopefully that helps you a little bit, and you find an amazing dog (corgi or not) to join your family to share the love! :)

(Maybe other corgi owners can chime in with their experiences, too!)
