Originally published in September of 2017, this newly spit and polished post (with a few new additions) is my gift to you on Day 10 of Twelve Big, Beautiful Days of Christmas Corgis!
When you get right down to it, everyday with Corgis is a little bit like Christmas anyway. Isn’t it?
With Brunhilde, the ball is never far. Now going on 9 years old, she was born in Southern California and now lives happily in Germany. ❤️

Franny’s favorite toy since she was a baby has been her “featherstick.” Even at age 11 with arthritis, she will still run and chase it until she is completely worn out.
Yes, it’s a cat toy. 🙂
— Erin Lawrimore
This is Beckley, our foster corgi. He’s got a few stuffed squeaky toys but the Avocado is his favorite! The pit squeaks and he paws at it trying to get it out. It’s adorable.
— Meredith Walsh
Joey Jackson Johnson
Joey loves all his toys, but his binkie is one of his favorites.
— Paula Welch
Pippa and her kitty. I drive three hours to Ikea a few times a year to buy replacement kitties. Yes, that’s my IKEA excuse. 😁
— Steph Ritchhart Garcia
Isabelle got her little shark toy for Christmas 2015 and even though it doesn’t squeak anymore she still carries it around.
— Mimi Morgan
SGT Buckley is never ever ever ever without his wwg ball.
It’s even included in his official military portrait.
— John Cy Buckley
This is Ladybug, aka Lovebug! She has a toy box full of toys and couldn’t decide which toy she wanted to nap with.
— Jennifer Graschel
Welly has always loved his Wubba collection. He has a pumpkin one, a Christmas one, a small blue one and his Mega one. He loves them all the same.
He throws them and catches them and chases them all by himself for sometimes up to an hour at a time, when he is healthy. One of the first signs that he was feeling a little better after his recent major surgery is that he grabbed a Wubba and carried it around. ❤
— Jessica Johnson
This is Raleigh She really loves all her toys. There are at least 5 gutted carcasses on my bed. Skunks, a chipmunk, a fox and more. My daughter removes the bones and toys every night and Raleigh takes them right back up there!
— Patti Walsh
Kai used to have a small caterpillar cat toy that he took everywhere. He even grabbed it before he left the house. NOW all the toys are his. This wasn’t staged, he does this!
Mine, ALL MINE.

Clover and her well-loved lion.

Leo loves soft, squishy squeaky toys in the house, but his all time favorite toy is his blue jolly ball that he plays fetch with outside. He’s had the same one for about 7 years. We put it in a safe spot each time we’re done so his blue heeler brofur won’t get it.
It’s starting to really show some wear and tear. He refuses to carry it by the handle and jams his mouth on it to pick it up. We have a back up, identical, blue jolly ball, but to Leo there is only one blue ball.
Leo is 9 years old and I don’t know what I’d do without him.

Here is Justice with his blue bunny. He also has a green one and a purple one.
— Nancy J. Jones
Lily loves the plush toys that honk or squeak. When it is walk time, she tosses a toy in the air and bites it to hear the sound, carries it a little ways and then finally leaves it for our walk back in our woods.
— Sherrill Adamcik
That’s me, Duffy, with the Orange Toy that Peanut’s Grandma, Ms. Clarisse gave me!

One of our two Corgis has an obsession with his “precious”, a pink Kong (aka The Pinky). He must know where it is at all times. What’s strange is that he will carry it from the family room upstairs to his bed, then 2 minutes later bring it back down to the family room. We watch him make this round trip 6-10 times an evening … crazy, like he’s just never comfortable it’s safe where it is.
This is a rare moment where he’s lying still with it. Our other Corgi knows NEVER to go near The Pinky!
— Jayme Gwin
Porter and monkey.
— Tanya Stone
This is Nugget with his dog toy. His mom gave this to him when we picked him up. He’s 3 months old and loves this squeaky dog.
— Maureen Madigan Gorcheck
Our Peanut (now at the Rainbow Bridge) used to love his Green Toy, Orange Ball and Teddy Family.

This is Laci and she’s the tennis ball queen! She loves fetch and hasn’t ever bothered with any of the other toys I’ve gotten for her over the years. At 13 1/2 and with arthritis, she’s still chasing her tennis ball!
— Lynda Eyberse
It’s all about the pig for Tegan. She starts every day with a game of chase. The human chases Tegan to get the pig away from her. 😂 It’s rubber, so we thought it wouldn’t last very long, but she’s had it for more than 6 months. Just carries it around honking it all. day. long.
It’s’s a good thing the humans love Tegan a lot!
— Chrisann Lowe
Ginger napping with Squeaky Sheep placed behind her for safekeeping.
— Paula Wilkison
We got this toy for him, except a smaller size, when he came home at 10 weeks. He grew too big for it so we had to buy him the identical one except larger — ha ha!
— Angie Pagendarm
Zoe with her frisbee. She was obsessed with it. She passed in 2010. I still have it. ❤️

Eli absolutely loves Snow Baby. He will carry her all over the house (outside too). He first became attached when we would take the boys to visit our mother, whose health was failing. We would drive 2 1/2 hours each way and Eli used Snow Baby as his pillow in the car.
Someone said that Eli associates Snow Baby with our mother. I am not sure that is true but would like to think it is. By the way, Snow Baby used to be white. Now she’s really grey.
— Patty Hoeler
Louie loved lambchop to death. He does love his red, white and blue chew toy too!
— Mary Reilley-Clark
Despite a large variety of other toys, Penny’s choice is always her chew bone! It takes her a couple of weeks to mangle one. Because she has a sisfur Laci, I buy a chew bone for each of them, but Laci always goes back to her tennis ball and Penny ends up with both chew bones!
— Lynda Eberse
Fifteen year-old Sullivan is not a formal guy, so we call him Sully. He loves toys!
— Sandra Park
Hi! I’m Honey Buns and I love my cow.

Archie napping with a few of his favorite toys.

Peyton and his lobster. Aside from one particular red ball (which always seems to travel to the far reaches under the furniture), Lobster is the one toy Peyton is attached to. All the way from Islamadora, Lobster has withstood the test of time for 6+ years. A few stitches here and there but Lobster still makes his glub, glub, glub noise.
— Patty Hoeler

An Honorary Corgi
My big boy has his teddy that we replace every November from Petsmart. He grabs it before he goes to bed, like a toddler.
