Westminster: Cardigan Welsh Corgi
What’s the Difference Between Cardigan and Pembroke Corgis?

I have to confess I didn’t really know the differences between Cardigan and Pembroke Corgis until this year at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Cardigans are the ones with tails and more variety in color… Pembrokes are the ones that are generally orange and with no tails (sometimes… except when they have them!)
They’re definitely adorable! Just look at the face on the cutie below!
The Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club says:
One of the many breed characteristics that distinguish Cardigans from Pembrokes is color. Cardigans come in more colors including blue merle and brindle which have never occurred in purebred Pembrokes.
The American Kennel Club says:
Low set with moderately heavy bone and deep chest. Overall silhouette long in proportion to height, culminating in a low tail set and fox-like brush. General Impression–A handsome, powerful, small dog, capable of both speed and endurance, intelligent, sturdily built but not coarse.
Best of Breed was GCHP CH Aubrey’s Tails Of Mystery.
Best of Opposite was Sex GCH CH Mariel’s Harvest Moon.
