20+ Hilariously Adorable Reasons Why The Queen Chose Corgis

Comical, cuddly and capricious, Corgis have continued to rule the internet with their various hijinks. While they might seem ridiculous at times, did you know that Corgis were originally the pets of warriors? Yes that’s right, the first breed of these snuggly dogs were brought over to Cardiganshire, Wales by a warrior tribe of Celts around 1200 BCE. Now, over 3000 years later, Corgis seem less like warriors and more like comedians. Pretending to drive cars, sledding in the snow and dressing in ridiculous outfits, these rotund pups have brought many of us countless moments of internet joy. Beyond the web some Corgi enthusiasts love these animals so much they organized a Southern California annual Corgi meet-up. Here at Bored Panda we like to spread the cheer, so we have put together a list of some of our favorite Corgi moments. Don’t forget to up-vote your favorite photos!

English teacher comes to work every day armed with a corgi

The world has been a tense place as of late, especially for teachers caught up in gun debates. 

But one good teacher in Austin, Texas, is bringing us some goodness that we so desperately need.

 On Twitter, user Sophie Vershbow shared an image of her friend’s boyfriend, an AP English teacher.

This proud teacher apparently brings his corgi, Banjo, to school every day. He proudly holds the noble doggo for picture day in this particular photo.

“Less teachers with guns,” says Vershbow in her Tweet. “More teachers with corgis.”

Twitter users were quick to rally their support behind this unlikely hero.

Some even shared pictures of their own scholarly dogs.

We hope that Banjo and Banjo’s owner are having a good, education day and that they continue to brighten the lives of their students (and Twitter followers).

This video of a corgi riding a one-eyed pony was made for the internet

The internet loves corgis—especially videos of corgis doing silly things. Usually, these videos don’t depict the jolly, short-legged dogs as particularly agile. But maybe we underestimated them.

A video captured by a 22-year-old woman in Missouri shows a corgi riding on the back of a pony. Excuse me, a one-eyed pony named Cricket. Callie Schenker says the corgi belongs to her neighbors, and the dog apparently snuck onto her property and befriended Cricket while all the humans weren’t watching.

News anchor Katy Andersen tweeted a link to the video on Wednesday, and it quickly spread across the internet. Over the last couple of days, the video was retweeted by more than 50,000 people on Twitter. If you watched the video, you probably have a few questions. How the hell did this corgi climb onto the pony’s back? Did the pony bow down? Did the corgi bounce from the fence to the pony’s back? Can the pony and the corgi communicate with each other?

It’s probably best not to think too much about the logistics of this video. Just enjoy it as a break from the daily soul-crushing news cycle. The internet is certainly enjoying it:

One person made a request: Set the video to Ginuwine’s 1996 hit song “Pony.”

Ask, and the internet delivers. Here’s the video with “Pony” playing in the background.

Target made this Corgi so happy and honestly, same

One dog just gave the exact expression we all have when shopping at Target. 

Zira the Corgi didn’t hold back her excitement when strolling down the aisles. Her owner Jesse (@virgoprincxss) captured the moment in two candid photos. 

You simply can’t go wrong with posting an image of a dog and one of the happiest place on earth. 

It looks like a furry mirror. 

The Corgi/Aussie mix also shows a small resemblance to Target’s mascot Bullseyes, because Zira is an overachiever. The uncanny similarities didn’t go unnoticed by the Internet.

Watch out Bullseye, you may have some competition on your paws (sorry).

The viral tweet inspired others to post their own pets’ experiences at Target. Despite the happy images, people in the comments had mixed feelings on it. 

Some kept asking if Zira was a service animal, while others believed it was unsanitary for her to be in the cart. But, negative comments aside, can we all agree and appreciate how happy some of these animals are?

Despite the mix reactions, the tweet still has over 57,000 retweets and 217,000 likes. We’re sure Target is very grateful for the free advertisement.
