Utterly cute, but can the Corgi write code?

I think that's less Corgi-eye-view and more gnome-riding-the-Corgi-eye-view.

ON, SPRINKLES! TO VICTORY OVER THE GOBLINS!

maudlin - yes, but their estimates are off by a factor of 2-3

Aww - makes me want to hit the trail. My standard poodle loves nothing so much as a hike -- and there's nothing more humbling than watching a dog with a puff tail lope easily up a steep grade, then look back at you with a smile as you labor upwards. :)

Coincidentally, that's how you say "Corgi" in Welsh! ;D

I'm glad they let me know the brand of camera they strapped to their dog, that helped a lot.

fartron, it's one of the first questions you get asked after showing a vid like this.

Good boy. No, pay no attention to the body in the rolled-up canvas -- let's go exploring! Whee!

Don't suffer motion sickness myself, but this dog seriously needs a steadicam.

That is not a dog. It is a Corgi ™ .

Mentioning that your camera is a GoPro is something of shorthand to imply that you made a "POV adventure" video.

Not shilling for the product, but they're small, durable, fairly cheap, and stupid-easy to operate. Alternatives are not ranked well against GoPro. I'm actually surprised there aren't more competitors, given how popular adventure videos seem to be.

But if you want to pay less and you're more willing to take a chance on what you get, or you want to hack your camera, 808 Car Keys Micro Cameras sound awesome.

Yeah, I'm not usually troubled by handheld camera work in movies and that sort of thing but I couldn't watch more than a few seconds of that without feeling sick.

Actually, that's how you spell "Corgi" in Welsh. It's still pronounced the same.

I am happy for this video because it let me know there were a bunch of Ugly Casanova songs I did not know about on an interesting documentary I did not know about, and these are both things I enjoy. Thanks!

I thought that was charming and I loved when he crested the ridge for the view.

Also the first question your sponsor will expect you to volunteer the answer for.

So far I've found it to be shorthand to imply you made a "viral advertisement" with 100% accuracy.

Corgies just gotta corg.

Thank you for the two and a half minutes of indulging my completely justified obsession with soft fuzzy floppy adorable corgi ears.

It occurs to me that a full-time Corgi-Cam would give the Penguin-cam a serious run for its money, in terms of "things I will watch for hours on end." Those ears make for a great heads-up display reticle.

I miss my Corgi :-/

For better or worse, Corgis are in fact Faerie steeds. (they even have saddle marks to prove it!)

Why in the world are there no First-Person-Corgi video games?

They should have added an Ein level to the Cowboy Bebop video game.
