Good morning Corgi Nation, and welcome to my weekly guest spot on The Daily Corgi! I am your host Paige K. Davis, founder of CorgiPals. As you know, every week I do a guest post to keep you up to snuff with the goings-on in the CorgiPals world.
First, I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Patricia Cody and her family. Yesterday, just one week after losing their Corgi Gizmo, they lost sweet Millie, a former CorgiPals client of The Baxter Valentine Fund. Millie was such a brave girl. She lost her eyes, had a tumor behind her ear removed, and battled cancer for as long as she could. I don’t know many Corgis that have been through so much and with the same grace that Millie displayed. Frap on in peace, baby girl. It was an honor to help you and your family.
Next, some really exciting news! The Fiber Friends auction of the custom one-of-a-kind mini Jasper Islington has officially ended and the highest bid was $305!! Not only that, but one generous CorgiPal has offered to match the bid up to $300… which means the Jasper Islington Fiber Friend auction brought in $605 for CorgiPals!! THANK YOU to Jasper, Fiber Friends, and our generous donor!
Yesterday on our Facebook page we asked a very important question. “A group of lions is a pride. A group of crows is a murder. A group of ducks is a flock. So we want to know… what would YOU call a group of Corgis?” Leave your answer in the comments below, or in the comments on the Facebook post!
currently need only 1,960 more fans! Please spread the word to help us
reach our goal! Remember, every person who knows about CorgiPals is one
more soldier in our army fighting for Corgis in need all over the globe!
Keep on Corgi’n on!
A "Cuddle" of Corgi's!
I think a group of Corgis should be called a frappe.
aka Matilda's dad
Ann Weber says
Depends on size of Corgi collective, of course. If using the avoirdupois system: very small grouping (1-2 dogs) = a "hug" (in parts of Appalachia, a "fuzzbundle"). There are 2-3 hugs in a "cuddle" (I love that), also "couchpile." There are 4 cuddles in a "derp." Five to ten derps = a "polyderp (pd)." Ten pd or more = a "frappe" as Matilda's dad recalls correctly from elementary Corgiometry. (Note: colloq. sp. = "frap" south of Mason-Dixon Line). Multiple frappes = still not enough but a good start! If forced to use the metric system, we obtain the more precise if less satisfying decimal terminology: microcorgi (a paw or nub; 3 nubs = one cardi), millicorgi, centicorgi, CU (whole Corgi unit), decacorgi, kilocorgi, and so on. When housetraining puppies (Corgettes), you may also measure some accidents in terms of corgiliters. A Scottish geometrist has reported observing vertical assemblies of Corgis which are measurable as hexacorgis and even dodecacorgis — but these findings have yet to be replicated. P.S. When measuring not Corgi quantities but ineffable qualities such as pure Corgi adorableness, we recommend the term "Gracie" as most appropriate.
