I thought it might be fun to reserve a page on this site for some non-book-related things.
Like Corgis. Meet my Darcy:

I adore Corgis. They're such odd little dogs: long bodies like Dachshunds, triangle ears like Chihuahuas, facial features like Huskies. They have long torsos and short, stumpy legs (the name “Corgi” means “dwarf dog” in Welsh).
They’re hard to find in The States, but thanks to the internet, they’re becoming more popular than ever. In fact, entire blogs and Tumblr sites are devoted to this goofy, unique breed, and they've gained quite a following. So, I thought I'd devote at least a bit of time to them here:
Some facts about Corgis (all are clickable links):
They’re the Queen’s dogs.
They herd cows fearlessly.
They have soulful eyes.
They look like stuffed animals.
Since most don't have tails, their ears can often signal their emotions: Loving and submissive. Or inquisitive.
They’re super goofy. Goofy. Goofy.
They can imitate Chewbacca.
They sleep in awkward positions. See?
They can do tricks.
They even play Scrabble.
They like to drive.
And chew on cats’ ears.
And wear costumes.
But best of all? They smile. Constantly. Even in their sleep.
No wonder so many people love them.
