"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats." - James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times
The article describes how corgis (the dogs, not the die-cast company) are taking over the world. All I can add to this is, "Well, of course. Haven't you been paying attention?"
The biggest sign of this is that, when I bought my first Corgi, Mikey, and Googled the word "corgi." The first few hits were for the Corgi USA Classic Die-cast Company and their products. The dogs weren't usually found until the second page. Now, the dogs are at the top of the page.
As for me, we're on our second Corgi, and they couldn't be more different. Mikey would charm you out of the world. Duffy just takes it.
