I heard you're tired of cute cats so here are some cute dogs instead

What's cuter than a corgi in motion? A corgi lying completely inert. What's cuter than that? A corgi lying still so his owner can vacuum him.

I'm pretty sure these aren't doubles but I might be wrong.

I will not be held responsible for the noises I make after watching these.

Dear God, no. Put the cut animal posts to bed for the evening.

Needs more Flying Frog pose (a corgi favorite) as well as the Wall-hugger and the Legs-Up pose.

(get yourself a Corgi, and you will see all of these, A LOT)

Is it a perspective issue or is the vacuum corgi like, weirdly huge? Or is that a little kid vacuuming it with a tiny vacuum?

That's definitely a beefier-than-normal Corgi, but not super uncommon. One of mine was close to 40 pounds, and it wasn't all fat, he was just plain "roomier."

Also tolerated the vacuum a lot better than the feistier Basil.

that corgi vacuuming vid is definitely a classic.

Googling ARVBGLBGRBRGLBGRGHBG does indeed get you to that video. WTF? A Colbert joke or something?

This from youtube's related session kinda blew me away. Music aside and all.

That first one is basically me, every morning. Except replace the adorbs-ness with GRAR and bad hair.

I used to Dustbuster my rabbits during shedding season. They normally didn't like the sound of a vacuum, but when it came to shedding, I think they just kinda understood and cooperated.

Ah, memories.

And now for your moment of zen....

Also, "pooped out corgi puppy" read a different way has a totally different, baffling, and grosser meaning.

That was cute. One favorite for you.

Flying Frog Pose....I finally have a descriptor for Herbert's favorite position :D

D'awwwwwwwwwwwwww. Flying frog = <3<3<3<3<3, my bunny does it too. The PTFO behavior I would totally interpret from my brother's dog (best corgi mutt) as TROLLING FOR ALL OF THE BELLY RUBS, IDGAF, YOU RUB MY BELLY FOREVS.

You see placid puppies... I see DEAD DRUNK DOGS.

These dogs need to hit rock-bottom before they get the help they need.

That's a pretty fat corgi. They tend to get fat if they don't get quite a bit of exercise, which is why they aren't ideal apartment dogs, despite their compact size. That one could definitely use a little less kibble. :)

It's also a small vacuum cleaner, though. It's an overweight dog, not a gigantic one.

Not a double but definitely related.

We used to do this with our Abyssinian cat.

Needs more upholstery brush. The crevice tool is only really appropriate for shar pei breed dogs.

Speaking of sleeping positions, there is also The Dead Gopher Position which is a close relative of the legs up pose. (Named from a transmetropolitan comics where Spider sees his cat sleeping like that and says that it reminds him of a dead gopher.) Basically, animal asleep, on back, legs tucked in.

Don't forget the corgi flop (courtesy of my Chorgi)

That is not a corgi flop. This is the corgi flop: Corgi Flop

I was parking my car a few days ago and saw a woman and her corgi about 10 feet away. I yelled "Corgi!" (what else are you supposed to do?) The dog looked my way (must have heard me from inside the car) and came over to say hello with her owner after I got out. It made my day.

You have to admit that Corgi has excellent form. It looks like it should fly twenty feet but instead only goes about a foot before gravity kicks in. But with excellent form.

I love that the vacuum Corgi is named "Corbin Dallas Multipass," although I think there's definitely a missed opportunity for using "Corgin" instead.

Damnit. Why are all of the Corgi threads filled with links that my browser highlights as 'Already Visited'?

Because corgis are flipping awesome, that's why. Weird little joker dogs who just want to be taken seriously.

Before my Cookie went paralyzed last year from IVDD (she can walk again after spinal surgery), she wanted nothing more than to be able to fly like the wind. She would have totally done that off the dock corgi flop. (I have to admit, that everytime I see the corgi go off the dock, I feel a little sad for the boy.)

Nowadays the little princess gets carried down the stairs and picked up whenever she wants couch / bed time for fear of rupturing another disk. She's grudgingly come to accept that I will freak out whenever she does something strenuous like standing on two legs.

If you tried that vacuum thing with the corgi we had as a kid you'd lose a hand. That was the smartest dog I've ever known (he literally had a sense of humor) but man was he bitter about not being born a person.

I think I've posted this link before because it is the greatest thing ever, but in case you missed it: Corgis playing tetherball.

Though I am a fox terrier person through and through...man, I could pet these Corgis till the cows come home.
