As you bake your trays of holiday cookies this year, make some homemade dog treats too! Don’t forget about your favorite furry friend at Christmas! In my house our dogs always had their own little stockings hung over the mantle filled with little treats. These little treats only require three ingredients and your pups will go crazy for them!
Speaking of pups, I have to share this event that Ben and I went to last month….Corgi Con. Every year San Francisco hosts an event called Corgi Con. It is literally an entire day dedicated to corgis, their owners, and lookie loos who can’t resist (us).
I’ve never seen anything like this, but I totally loved every minute of these cute little guys!
How happy is this guy!?! The event takes place at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, right at the end of Golden Gate Park. The iconic windmills seemed to watch over the event with a smile! Parking is impossible, but luckily the long walk to the car is along the gorgeous beach. I’m not complaining!
The day consists of long walks on the beach, lots of digging, chasing balls, and some beauty rest. These pups are so long that they would dig and dig and dig, but only their front legs would be down in the hole!
Fluffiest pilot ever!
The day wouldn’t be complete without a costume contest! Everyone lined up to watch and compete.
Royalty doesn’t walk…they are too important for that!
A corgi pinata!
Even the owners get into the spirit! Here’s a whole pirate family.
Dino Corgi stops to say hi to Sheriff Corgi!
These guys rode in on their sailboat! That won them runner up in the costume contest…
But no one could beat Steve Irwin and his Crocorgi (get it, a crocodile corgi?)
This feels very San Francisco. Do you have anything like it in your hometown?
The day wrapped up with corgi races. Some got it, some got distracted along the way, all had fun running around!
They worked up a thirst!
