Here come the corgis!

The Gallatin Valley Corgi Club got started when a woman named Barbara Van’t Hul decided it would be fun to organize a corgi march in the Bozeman Sweet Pea Parade. She called a few people, who called a few people, and before she knew it, nearly 20 corgis arrived to strut their short-legged stuff down Main Street.

Through that initial contact, lots of new corgi friends were made and soon corgis and their owners were coming out of the woodwork and asking how they could get involved. With help from Steve Hample and his corgi, Buddy, a loose-knit yet very enthusiastic club was formed. Plans are now underway to organize one or two fun charitable events and parade appearances annually.

  1. This new web site should work well for people like me who do not use Facebook, although it’s still possible to see local photos and read comments and tips on that site:

  2. Huzzah! Huzzah! I’ve attended several events of the Yellowstone All Corgi Club (notably picnics and costume parties in Laurel) and am delighted that a new club is now in Bozeman. I want to get involved! BTW, the Yellowstone club is hosting it’s annual Halloween party:
    OCTOBER 27 is the YACC HALLOWE’EN CORGI COSTUME CARNIVAL from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Happy Tails Park, AnimaLodge at exit 437 off I-90 near Laurel, MT. There’ll be a costume parade at 12:00 sharp. Dress up with your Corgi for the best chance of a prize for any of these categories:
    SCARIEST COSTUME
    CUTEST COSTUME
    BEST ORIGINAL COSTUME
    BEST GROUP ENTRY (handler and 3 or more dogs)
    BEST YOUTH ENTRY
