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.
