Mistaken Identity

Bess and Rocky, who for the record are Pembroke Welsh Corgis, are spending this lovely day locked up because we have workmen in the house and in the backyard. I took them for a late morning trot by the playground to work off a bit of their energy. Some kids were playing on the swings, in uniform, waiting for their football game to start.

One cute little guy, who was wearing his helmet, told a teammate, "Look at those Bulldogs."

"Those aren't Bulldogs. They don't have round heads," responded player #2.

Player #1 said solemnly, "I'm afraid of Bulldogs."

"Really? I'm not. They can't breathe good so I know I can outrun them," player #2 declared.

It was all I could do not to laugh out loud at this exchange as we passed them.

Last year, a little boy at the playground called them Rotweillers. And now they are mistaken for Bulldogs. (Check out Tyson, the skateboarding Bulldog.)

The only thing ferocious about these two is their appetite. They might drown you from all the licking, though. :-P

Oh God, people have guessed all sorts of things about our Corgis. Few of them are even close to being right.

Little kids crack me up with their guesses. I would've guessed they were Dachshunds when I was a kid because that's what my Gram had.

That's hilarious. I think if anything they look like maybe a really mini-collie or something, but a bulldog? Oh so vicious I am sure they are :)

In a few minutes they'll be viciously tearing into some rawhide chews after a few more minutes of ferociously chasing each other around the house.
