Pawdi Gras Corgi Fest: A Day of Stubbiness

Yesterday we loaded up the car with lawn chairs, ice chests, and snacks and headed to Selma, Texas for the First Annual Pawdi Gras Corgi Fest at Bluebonnet Bunkn’ Biscuit.

I wanted to give Luna the opportunity to meet other Corgis since there aren’t many of them in San Antonio. It was a great day filled with short legs, heart-shaped butts, and massive ears. Can’t get better than that.

The weather was perfect: clear skies and 75 degrees. The company was great: my mom, sister, BF all came to support Luna. We met a lot of great people, too. It was nice to get advice on how to handle Corgis from seasoned veterans.

Luna was the cutest one there by far, however. And the skinniest, at that! Some of those dogs were seriously massive. I would relate them to mini hippos, but in a cute way. I really think she enjoyed meeting older Corgis and learning from them! It was so cute to watch her interact.

The event was Mardi Gras themed so some of the owners donned their pets in vibrant costumes.

I tried to dress Luna up, however, I looked and looked but never found anything that resembled Mardi Gras. Luckily, they were passing out beads at the entrance that I used as a necklace for her. I think she liked it because not once did she attempt to chew it off! She’s learning!!!

I would definitely bring Luna to another Corgi gathering. We now belong to a community of dedicated, sometimes obsessed, Corgi lovers, and that’s fine with me!
