Corgi Distance

There is a term that we have coined: Corgi Distance . The definition for this is: The appropriate amount of personal space that must be maintained between one corgi and another, or one human and a corgi. That distance is the exact length of one corgi leg. If someone invades the corgi's personal space, a leg is thrown out to enforce proper distancing.This space requirement is usually applied when being over-cuddled by a human. The leg is applied to the human's chest. It is also applied to a companion corgi at nap time to prevent overheating. While I don't have photographic illustration of the human/corgi push-off....here's what Corgi Distance looks like between two canine friends.......

  1. Ha ha well funny. I do the random kick, the butt budge and power paw push. Space is at a premium and therefore the best space is MINE! Rock on guys. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. LOL... my Emma gives me a mighty powerful push with her hind legs when I invade her space, on the bed, during the night. Message received loud and clear Emma.

  5. That is a great photo! Wrigs's idea of appropriate personal space is basically the maximum distance he can stretch out in all directions. Humans get whatever is left.

  6. You know, my next dogs might have to be Corgis. Personal space is a big deal around here.

  8. Oh my gosh that is the sweetest picture. Pugs sure have no personal distance, which is fine by us. I generally have two or three pugs (and one cat) on top of me and on top of each other. Bob the bulldog on the other hand likes some personal space, he doesnt mind cuddling with us but he likes to be in charge and he wants space from the dogs
