Tuesdays Tails

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
Charles Dickens


I must tell you that I really got my start from Corgis. I have been blogging for almost 7 years. The first couple of years I was a loner writing for myself. I didn't even know about followers. True. Then one day I got a follower. She had a Corgi. Then before I knew it I had five or six corgi friends. Then maybe ten. That is how my blog started. Now at the time Pugs were my favorite dogs. Corgi's second. I have come to put them on equal footing now. However they are still number two - because now our little mutt Disco is the love of our lives.

Now Monica is a long time Corgi friend and she doesn't blog too much anymore, but she sent me this.

It is 40 of THE CUTEST CORGI'S you will ever see. This is my personal favorite. They have all sorts of corgi's doing all sorts of cute things. And while you might think it is a waste of time - for me - laughing and enjoying pictures for a few minutes makes me stop and enjoy the moment. Do you have a favorite?



THANK YOU MONICA.



THOUGHT OF THE DAY ~




Okay, it isn't always true for me - but I am working at that being true for me more then not.

I agree with the getting older and happier philosophy.

I ain't, however, a Corgi kind o' guy. I like my dogs on the larger side with a little meat on their bones. I like to be able to get my arms around 'em and hug 'em good and proper.

Anna Smith said...

That is so true, I'm only 28, but I can't wait til I'm older - yes I'm looking forward to getting older lol :P

I am an English Bull Dog kind of person with Pug sharing my favorite spot.

Pugs are such devoted pets, it is hard to not love them the very best of all. But English Bull dogs have a mind of their own and you can't help but admire their tenacity. They both have fabulous personalities.

Rhonda said...

ROFL ... just the perfect way to start my day...loooooook at that tongue.....LOL

Sandra said...

I wish the last quote was how i feel, it is some better than when i was young, but still is there and keeps me from doing things i would like to do. my son has a female corgi, a chichihua and 6 chi-corgis. they kept the pups. his drive me nuts barking all the time, does disco bark a lot? that is the cutest tongue shot ever

Jeanie said...

Our dog Dodger's favorite is a Corgi...a pretty little girl who lives behind us, but lately he has also had his eye on a very pretty Labradoodle.

From the Kitchen said...

I love all dogs but my favorite is the dalmatian. Not too big, great with families, intelligent, few health problems, needs no special grooming to be strikingly beautiful. As long as you are careful of the breeder, they are great dogs. We've had three starting 25 years ago. Oliver is our five-year old.

Best,
Bonnie

Shug said...

How adorable...Not sure that I have ever seen one of these before...
Have yourself a super great day...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweetie...
That is just the cutest darn pic ever. I love little pugs. (My daughter Heidi has one named Ceasar and he is quite a character.) It is so much fun to see him interact with Bruiser our Boston Terrier. Love my critters.

That photo of the Corgi licking the p-butter jar just way cute, way cute. I can see that happening.

Love the thought for the day as well. When I lost most of my speaking voice, I learned not to care what others thought anymore. I am just happy to be me now. 55 and happy to be me.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. You always brighten my day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Amazing the things that lead us to the wonderful world that is blogging.

A great quote by the way, this is indeed one of the benefits of getting older.

Shelly said...

You always bring sunshine to the starts of our days- thank you!

Thisisme. said...

Hi. I also agree with the getting older and being happier quote. Love the corgi's - so cute. Another great post from you my friend. Keep them coming!

Wanda's Wings said...

I tend to like the smaller dogs too. Your blog is great. Wow seven years. I am impressed.

That corgi :) said...

LOVED THEM ALL! LOL. But then of course I would :) I couldn't even pick a favorite from the bunch because they were all so cute!! And creative too! Thanks for the morning smile!!! Have a great day!

Changes in the wind said...

Its sad but true that we don't really get with the program until we are older:) Not sure why that is and don't think that this is as true with men.

Jill said...

It was really fun for me to read how you got your start here! The Corgis sure are cute.

Michaele said...

Like you, I have grown much, much fonder of Corgis since I started blogging.

Remington said...

Seven years....cool! Love the thought of the day!

A Quiet Corner said...

That older life thought is one we all need to remember...even if we're NOT old!...:)JP

Beth said...

Corgis are certainly cute! Blogging for seven years is awesome! Oh that is true that we tend to enjoy things more when we don't let others opinion bother us....

andy said...

That's funny that first pic. Have a great day

TexWisGirl said...

i like angela's sweet corgi. :)

BelovedBomber said...

Trying hard to care about what God thinks about me and not so much about what others think about me...we have a border collie and a little shi-poo, a stray and a gift.

Lynn said...

I did the same thing with blogging - I blogged for the longest time - almost two years - with no readers. I always say thanks to my friend Jannie, who found my blog by clicking "next" on the blogger home page.

My nephew got a Corgi, who he named Tucker, but now Tucker lives with his grandparents, who adore him. They live in the Shenandoah Valley. My sister gets to walk him multiple times a day and her granddaughter (my great niece Mina, who I blog about a times) LOVES him. And he loves her. The two of them run around and around the house when she first walks in the door for a visit.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm working on that older and happier stuff also! I know your love for dogs is strong and that Disco is a sweetie! hugs, Linda

Ginny said...

I love the corgis and always have!

Retired English Teacher said...

I do like those corgies. Must be the connection to Wales. My favorite dog breed is golden retriever.

Karen said...

I have a soft spot for pugs so that pic of the two of them is a keeper!

Rose said...

My daughter at one time had a corgi for a neighbor and it was sure a sweet dog...

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Yep, I'm in agreement with the older I get, I happier I get. So true. Hope you have a really, really good day today! Susan

Eva Ason said...

Hi Sandie...lovely post...what a tongue lol! Must be something very yummy in that glass...hehe...Have a lovely day my friend!

barbara l. hale said...

There are good things about getting old! Well, I'm a pug person but I could be convinced about corgis. They sure are cute!

Paula said...

I'm more of a cat person but there is room for all of us in this old world. Nice to know how you got your start here. I started in AOL journals in october 2003 then transfered to blogger. So many have come and gone over the years but I'm still in contact with a few from those years. I think its a wonderful hobby.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I'm not sure I've ever seen a Corgi in real life before!

Bev said...

LOL...wow what a tongue!!

Sall's Country Life said...

OMG, this made me laugh out loud!! Those two hugging is the greatest (obviously they haven't seen each other in a very long time)! That one is going on my Pinterest Board, thank you Chatty and your friend, Monica! Have a Happy May Day!

Dee said...

They look like the perfect pet. They look so gentle and happy and smart....I could get use to having one. I had a lab and a poodle...loved them both.

Wendy said...

Love the hugging dog piccy - sooooooooooo cute!

Ann said...

Loved all the Corgi pictures. The one with the Corgi reading in bed with the glasses on made me laugh.
I like the quote too and I'm finally to a point where I really don't care what other people think of me any more. It's really a wonderful feeling :)

Debbie said...

So cute! My two favorites are the one with the stuffed animal and the one with the turtle float in the pool.

And I liked the reading in bed one, too, I almost forgot that.

As for your question about May Day, I think it's originally a celtic holiday. All I know is that that always celebrated it when I was little by making these little cones with the little girl down the street and hanging them on doorknobs. When I had little girls, they did the same with our neighbors. I tried to find a picture of them to scan for that post, but I couldn't find one. They must have been running too fast. LOL

Arkansas Patti said...

I love that I have reached that stage. Too bad it didn't come when I was young and full of pee and vinegar.
Corgis are adorable. Thanks for the link.I'll go check it out now.

Martha said...

Yorkies are my favorite, but love those corgis too (I'm a Koda fan :) Thanks for the link!

Dolores said...

I love your blog, it's always so positive and uplifting....
I also love all animals.... anything with fur... (not snakes)
Cute pictures!!!
Hugs,

SweetMarie said...

We save the peanut butter jars for our pups. When we have three saved we let them clean them out. Amazing how clean they get the jars. LOL
I Love all the pics! My favorites are the mailbox, all the seasons and the two pics with the labs. I've always liked Corgi's. I just may have one some day. :)
Like your quote and I'm getting to be a lot like that. :)
Thanks for the smiles Sandie. You're wonderful!
Love, Marie

Angela said...

You know I LOVE corgi's! They are the funniest dogs. Jazz keeps me entertained. When I need a good laugh all I have to do is see what Jazz is doing and it makes me smile when she smiles at me!

Congratulations on 7 years of blogging!

Hugs,
Angela

Blondee said...

I never realized how popular corgi's were until the last year or so...the girly is fascinated with them and when we drive to TKD there are 4 or 5 houses that have them. She loves it when they are out. Cute dogs!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I just love any and all dogs. They are so faithful to their owners. I love your dog photos.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I love those dogs,, but I agree your Disco is a little love!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That thought for the day is my life right now.... I'm happier than I've ever been, and I'm definitely getting older!!!!

Blogging is wonderful, isn't it??? We meet people with the same interests --and that is just awesome... Great doggie pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

jack69 said...

Funny, I had never heard the Corgi name. But then my now friend Betty made a comment. I love the little shepherds. We are late, after Sherry's accident. but finally gettinf around. I love coming here!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my gosh, those are the cutest photos. I love the Mailboxing one and Reading in Bed. Too cute!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

It's most definitely the long-tongued peanut butter snitcher I like best. Sweet.

I for one have never really cared what anyone thinks of me...if they don't like it...tough...I'm me and I'm not gonna change.

Your posts are always a treasure. I'm glad we 'found' each other through the years.


Sorry I'm so late in getting over to visit with you since you left your comment in my blog ...I've been feeling poorly with a bout of the flu. Hope your week has been treating you well, and I wanted to thank you for stopping by.

My newest post if you care to view: REDHEADS

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Amen to that, Sandie!! I love the Corgi story... I started for the love of a long distance child as a way to keep up with our lives... who knew??? I'm so glad you found the corgi peeps and then spread out to find the rest of us... love ya, t.
ps that cake sounds YUM!! thank you.

Nancy said...

I love all dogs -- can't ever pick a favorite. Each one offers something special for its owner. :)

I'm so much more laid back about things since I quit working a few years ago. Worrying about what other's think kinda goes with the job thingy. :)
