What's better than 90 pictures of Corgis? 90 pictures of Corgis in costume.

Scrolling through them, I thought: "OK... OK... yeah, kind of... hmmm... god thing these are so cute or I'd be bored now... OK... what?... OH MY GOD STITCH IS PERFECT!"

tl;dr - cute dogs are cute.

My personal faves are numbers 26 and 56.

However, I am perhaps even more charmed by the utter half-assedness of these sort of click-bait. They don't bother to give names to 10% of the photos, and some of the names are clearly inaccurate (such as this photo entitled "Batman & Robin").

I recently got linked this list of Corgi Hybrids (the labels are not lined up nicely, but are in the right order) and just about lost it in squee. They corgi/husky? The corgi/dalmation? The corgi/poodle? It's ridiculous!

#41 - Chinese food seems a little distasteful.

The "Corgi herding sheep" Corgi turned my mind upside down, placed its paws on its chest, and licked its nose.

You don't know what you're talking about. Sweet And Sour Corgi is delicious.

I liked #2, since the dog seemed to be asking "why are you doing this to me?" which I feel more dogs should ask on a regular pasis. Fortunately, Corgis have no dignity.

I was going to say 91 pictures of corgis but it turns out that quality trumps quantity (who knew?).

I am an honest man of morals and good intentions. I will be arriving home from work in midtown around 7pm.

YOU: are a person living in midtown that has a CORGI.

PLAN: Let me come hug your dog. We can do it outside in the open for safety reasons. I just want to stop by and hug your corgi for a period not to exceed 8 minutes. Let's do this.

Working together we can make a brighter tomorrow.

PM me with details.

There's a kind of a silver fox type of guy who recently moved into my neighborhood somewhere, who walks his corgi by my house multiple times a day, and I can't figure out whether he is really as attractive as I find him or if it's the dog.

I am definitely a fan of the 'water' corgis- lobster and sleeping shark for the win(s).

Thank you for bringing my attention to the fact that at least one of our three dogs needs a fez and a TARDIS. None of them are corgis, but then again, I can just claim they've "regenerated" and no one will be the wiser.

A few years ago, my partner and I took temporary custody of his mother's Corgi/Chihuahua mix. He was the cutest thing anyone had ever seen, but his looks were unfortunately deceiving. He was the meanest, most ill-tempered, and relentlessly "alpha" dog I've ever shared a space with. Until we took him in, I wouldn't have believed it possible to be dominated in my own home by a 15-pound ball of cuteness.

Still, we loved him, and we miss him to this day. Here's a picture.

I used to think that there is no way animals could be anything but humiliated and uncomfortable in clothes, but I grew up in a place where it wasn't really cold enough for animals to need them, and when I moved to cooler climes I realized some dogs were pretty glad to have little coats and whatnot.

Now I am of the belief that some animals are really into wearing clothes whether or not it's cold, and I think the facial expressions on some of these corgis bear me out on this one, while the expressions of others support the idea that it is embarrassing to be a dog wearing clothes. There is room for all of us here.

I don't think there is any single, physical addition to my life I could make that'd lead to more happiness than a Corgi. I want one so much. It's getting ridiculous. Next place me and AoK live: pets allowed, runs in the park, ridiculous giant ears, a selection of stylish hats, being BFFs.

Yall wanna know how comfortable I am with my masculinity and sexuality?
Cuz Ill show ya.
My girlfriend and I live together and she/we have a Yorkie/Maltese mix.
Now me being a lad of the sort that spends time in the gym and likes to wear v-neck tees, the sight of me walking a tiny Yorkie alone would be enough. But when it gets really cold and rain out, as it tends to do here in winter, we bundle Sophie (the pup) up in this when I take her out for her morning walk.

And I don't even trip.

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!

I have two corgis, one Pembroke and the other a Cardigan. Their names should be Chaos and Mayhem! Know this... corgis are killer cute, yet they're stubborn little bastards. They don't care how short their legs are, they still think they're German Shepards. They will never quit trying to catch the squirrel on the fence, even though they're too short to ever have a chance.

ANYTHING can be herded - including you.

They train YOU, not the other way around. They run the show, they eat when they tell you it's time, and they go out for their walks on THEIR schedule, not yours.

Your only weapon in the corgi/master war is any Oscar Meyer product. Gotta love 'em.

Fortunately, Corgis have no dignity.

This is why I love them, though. Other dogs, faced with bodies that silly, would feel shame, or frustration - look at the misery of the Basset Hound, or the peevishness of the dachsundt. But the Corgi says, hey dude! Check this out! I look absurd! Ain't it great? These legs are pretty much a joke! And I love jokes. Hey, you gonna eat that? 'Cause I could eat that.

This is my new-to-me little dog, suspected of being a corgi mix. Only her momma knows for sure, and she didn't leave a note.

Pictures of dogs in costumes are fun but I haven't felt much compulsion to outfit my dogs for Halloween. I have been thinking of getting them matching vampire bat-patterned collars, though.

I tend to be against dogs in costumes (except for pugs -- I think if you have a pug, it should be in a costume ALL THE TIME, because why not?) but this was more entertaining than I expected. I kept thinking "OK, that's the most ridiculous one!" and then I'd scroll down and realize there was more ridiculousness to come.

I call false advertising. #3 isn't a costume, it's just what happens when the guys start drinking in the garage; and #4 is just the result of some kind of paintball gun mishap that the husband didn't want to take the fall for.

Oh man. I want a corgi so bad now. I wanted one before, but now... whoa. People walking their corgis out in public should probably be careful for a while, I wouldn't steal someone's dog but I would shamelessly stalk one for a couple of days. In my old neighborhood someone got a corgi puppy, and if you haven't ever seen a corgi puppy in a really awkward puppy phase gamboling around in a pile of leaves, wearing a neck cone... well, you just haven't lived.

(ShutterBun, I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing an animal friend really sucks.)

Condolences, ShutterBun. These are wonderful and pretty much underscore what it is that makes Corgis so cool. Saying goodbye to one you've hung with for so long must have been tough.

Now it's time to go hug my pets.

Corgis are special. They are also unstoppable energy machines, as you'd expect from a dog that small that was bred to herd cattle. People who want corgis, beware: they are not dogs that you can skimp on exercise.

Pugs and Corgis are the two breeds that break the "no costumes" rule.
