Corgi dog race raises thousands

Thanks to hundreds of corgi lovers, thousands of dollars was recently raised for the Saskatoon SPCA.

On June 5th a unique event took place at the Martensville Curling Club which saw more than 35 corgis participating in different races, according to an article from Global News.

“We just love corgis. We think they’re a really unique breed, and they’re actually becoming more and more trendy these days, so we just wanted people to come out and enjoy a laugh,” said the event’s media liaison Kate Kading, adding that corgis have been getting plenty of attention since the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The event took place to raise funds for the SPCA but organizers did not expect the turnout to be as large as it was with more than 600 people attending.

“I was expecting around 50-100 people. It was actually overwhelming how many people showed up today to support this,” said Kate, adding that approximately $3,000 was raised.

The competition saw plenty of different types of corgis including pembroke welsh corgis, cardigan corgis, cowboy corgis and a lab-corgi mix.

“Stevie dominated the competition at her first Sask dog race, and it was very exhilarating and clearly the strict training regimen we put her through paid off this year. It was a tough camp, but clearly she made it worth it,” said Stevie’s owner Kade.

And in second place came a corgi named Hamilton.

“I’ve been wanting Corgi get-togethers in Saskatoon or the area for quite a long time, I’ve had these guys for 4-5 years, and you always see the meetups in other places, so the videos are great, and the people are always really good,” said Hamilton’s owner Megan.
