Valiente: They aren't common, that's for sure.Perhaps it's because they rival the Daschund for orneriness.
DjangoStonereaver: Valiente: They aren't common, that's for sure.Perhaps it's because they rival the Daschund for orneriness.Every corgi I've ever met has been the perfect little companion. Hell, when they're glad to see youtheir entire back half wags (mostly because they don't have tails), and they can leap about a meter high./If you're talking about inbred purebreeds, though, I might concede the point.
Dwight_Yeast: 2) I thought kennel clubs demanded show dogs be intact and complete in every way.

facisto: HeartBurnKid: [c3e308.medialib.glogster.com image 640x466]InconsolableI named my rescue corgi Ein because of that show. Loveable little scamp with a bark like a canon blast.
Millennium: Dwight_Yeast: 2) I thought kennel clubs demanded show dogs be intact and complete in every way.Tail docking apparently doesn't count for that, if the breed calls for it.Dog shows are essentially networking events for dog breeders. People get to see who is producing the best examples of the breed with the least health problems, and when they favor those breeders, the breeds get better.
GibbyTheMole: I don't get the ear-lopping, tail-docking thing... It's like if you have baby, and you say "Gee, you know this would be a much better kid if we lopped off a toe the end of its weenis."

Felgraf: I admit, I someday want to get a Corgi and call it The Doctor. I'm not even a huge whoovian, I just think it would be amusing./And I really, reaaallly want a corgi.//But right now wife and I are away from home too much of the day to give one the attention/stimulation it'd need, so no corgi for us right now.
ArkPanda: A boxer fan told me you almost have to dock their tails because they have become so fragile, they will break all the time or even get torn off. Is this true?
Psylence: ArkPanda: A boxer fan told me you almost have to dock their tails because they have become so fragile, they will break all the time or even get torn off. Is this true?Some dogs end up with such long thin tails that when they wag 'em, of they hit anything its easy for them to split.And then they end up flinging blood everywhere as they wag their tails obliviously...So yea, for some breeds it really does make sense.No such reason exists for ear cropping that I am aware of. And most dogs that people associate with cut ears look so much cuter with natural ears. Dobermans, lookin' at you in particular.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: "The cuteness shortage may be linked to the country's 2007 ban on tail-docking, which breeders say make corgis less desirable show dogs, London's Daily Telegraph reported. "That statement is wrong in so many ways. Dog shows need to end.
phillydrifter: Sh*t like this makes me question evolution; this type of dog actually evolved? What kind of strategic advantages does this form offer?
