Dear Daily Corgi Readers,
In the year and a half I’ve been doing The Daily Corgi, I’ve worked hard, had fun, and met more awesome Corgis (and Corgi people) on-line than I can possibly count. My readership ROCKS, and I intend to keep you coming back for years to come!
When I started The Daily Corgi, I didn’t know much about blogging, twitter or facebook, but these social media tools have allowed me to create the connected community I’m now blessed to be a part of. Everyday we laugh, some days we cry, but always we get good things done for the dogs, and for one another. I honestly love what I can do here, even if it doesn’t pay well.
(OK, it pays nothing :-).
Still, I want to learn to do it even better, and today that means asking for your help.
Right now I’ve got my sights set on the BlogPaws 2011 Pet Blogging and Social Media Conference, the biggest event of its kind specifically for the pet community. This three day event is dedicated to education in blogging and social media and run by BlogPaws, an organization created specifically for the online pet community. BlogPaws focuses on bringing pet bloggers, pet enthusiasts, shelters, rescues and brands together for education, networking and creating worldwide change for pets in need.
Take a peek at last year’s BlogPaws Conferences; this year’s promises to be bigger and better!
Right now I’m at 84% of goal — and I’m baroOoOooin’ for more! If you enjoy The Daily Corgi, a donation of any size towards the costs of travel, hotel and conference registration for my trip would mean SO much.

Thanks for reading, and for coming back to this Corgi-powered place day after day.
THANK YOU, I appreciate your support!

And we appreciate YOU, Laurie! Represent!
Thanks for all you do! It's the first thing I check on the web each day.
FYI, I went to the BlogPaws website & saw an interesting blog about selling animals on eBay in the classifieds. Didn't know you could do that. That's a terrible idea – you know they can't possibly be policing each seller.
Of course, I went and looked up corgis. Not only are there puppies for sale, but also listings from Petfinders and well known rescue groups. I wonder if they're aware that these listings are showing up on eBay.

I saw that too on the BlogPaws site. It seems unbelievable to me — I hope it isn't true, but I wouldn't put it past people without enough integrity to know and do better.
If you do any looking into it, I'd love to hear back from you. PetFinder has got to know by now, but whether they have the power to do anything about it is another question. I sure hope they do.
Once again, dogs getting the short end of the stick.
Thanks for pointing this out … and for caring enough to post about it.
