Tuesdays With Tag - 2011 Florida Corgi Picnic...

Last Saturday, Tag and I got in the Explorer and drove three and a half hours over to Palm Bay, FL on the east coast for the 2011 Florida Corgi Picnic to benefit CorgiAid.
Tag and I are right there in the center of this picture (camera in my hands) as we take in all the dogs running and playing. Don't worry. I let Tag run around loose for a little while, too, but I shadowed him all around the grounds to make sure he didn't get into any trouble.
Man! There were a lot of Corgis! Cardigans, Pembrokes, long tails, short tails, fluffy coats - heck, one dog was shaved! Doesn't this one have a great face? These little dogs always look so happy (and intelligent)!
This is the one and only, Facebook-famous Spark Plug and his owner, Bob. They live just north of us in Nokomis, FL. We said we'd get together back on this coast for a little Corgi bonding closer to home.

Everywhere I turned there were short-legged dogs. There were raffles and auctions, and on more than one occasion, groups of Corgis would just lapse into Frantic Random Acts of Play (called "frapping") and they'd get pretty vocal, too. It was quite amusing. At one point, Tag couldn't stand it anymore and had to join in the barking. Hilarious!
I kept Taggart close to me for most of the day, but he still got to meet some of the other dogs who trotted over to say "hello". Look at the cute little spot on this little girl's forehead. So sweet!
 This little girl spent part of her afternoon fetching this red rubber ball. She was pretty persistent, too!
The weather was beautiful and a grand time was had by all.
Everyone had a comfy seat for the auction...
 or at least a nice shady spot to dog-watch.
I thought this Corgi was adorable in her costume with the 
dog bone collar. I think she has a great face, too!
 A Florida Gators football fan!

I took lots of pictures of so many great dogs. It was hard to limit my post to these few favorites. We're already looking forward to next year's picnic and hope that Handsome will join us for the festivities. It was really a lot of fun.

See you next week! 'til then...

How FUN!! I loved seeing all the Tag look-alikes & was totally unaware of the FB "Spark Plug". I like the idea of "frapping" & could use some myself these days. LOL

Did you find a sweetheart there?

Great fun day. I think we should all enjoy "frapping" from time to time. Our world might be a little more relaxed and nicer. Happy resting after all that fun...
