I can’t count the number of times I have seen this question posed to fellow tumblr corgi slaves. Every darn time I laugh my ass off. Firstly gotta say it again: EVERY DOG SHEDS!!! Even the ‘non-shedding’ breeds shed, it is just less obvious and much smaller amounts. Double coated dogs like corgis, huskies, and so on and so forth, shed, A LOT!!! Jimmy sheds, oh yes he does, all the time. Yet the tumbleweeds in my new house are like 99.9% corg fur. The fur on my clothes is easily 75% corg to 25% bagel despite the fact that Jimmy spends way more time on my lap. To make this even more clear to you, I brushed Fae and Jimmy today. Here is a photo of the fur I collected from the two of them.
Yes the tiny pile in the upper left of the photo is from Jimmy, the mini corg in the center is from Fae. So ahh yeah corgis shed, all dogs do. Don’t get a dog (or cat, rabbit, whatever) if you don’t want to go places with fur on your clothes, find fur in your food, etc.
Personally I would rather deal with the fur tumbleweeds and fuzzy clothes then not have these two goobers in my life!!!

I really do wish tumblr had a better way to respond to peoples replies to your posts. I promise I do read every reply I get, and truly love and appreciate every comment.

OMG I love that piggy too! Jimmy actually picked it out at the store, he started sniffing it like mad then grabbed it and would not let go, so we decided it needed to come home with us. It frequently gets used by me to go ‘fishing’ for dogs, and also for games of tug between the two critters!!

Yeah, they pretty much run the house, we pay the rent and supply the food and such, but really we are the squatters, it all belongs to them!!
krwebb said: This is surprising … for some reason I assumed Jimmy was bigger than Fae. This picture tells a different story …?
Jimmy is a tiny little show beagle, he is of the lesser seen small size of beagle (yes there are two size classes) he is of the 12 inches and under size and rather petite at that, he is a decently muscled 23lbs at last weigh in (he was only 21.5lbs when we got him, slightly underweight). Fae is a whopping well muscled 37lbs, and your typical uber long corg body on top of that.

Yeah, I think it is common in a lot of hound dogs, but good dog Jimmy is crazy for his food. He doesn’t really chew at all, just kinda hoovers it all in then looks at Fae’s bowl (we have him using a slow feeder bowl to at least slow the hoovering)!! He also goes nuts for treats, he can get so food focused that it is hard training him. He stops listening and just stares at the food in your hand.
Thanks for your replies guys! Keep them coming, I love reading them!
