Corgi Snow-Surfing Part 1: The Pursuit

The best part about snow for me is watching the corgis run through it. As a neighbor once commented, they look kind of like dolphins jumping waves as they navigate snow drifts that are deeper than they are tall (you can view a video at To send winter off with a fond farewell (and yes, I mean farewell–we’re ready for spring!), I thought I’d share some pictures of… corgis running through snow.

This first series I took during our last snow storm in which Leia chased Yoda through the drifts. Leia loves to chase him around even though his favorite thing to do is sit calmly under a tree.

Yoda: She’s coming after me, isn’t she?


Yes, Yoda. I’m afraid she is. Brace yourself.

"Oh no!"

“Oh no!”


“Why can’t I just sit out and enjoy the storm like any other dog?”



Like a shark, Leia sets her jaws for the attack.



But the attack costs her time, and Yoda manages to pull away.


I call this shot the “double-corgi.” You know: like a double rainbow.



Run, Yoda, run!


“Is she still behind me?”


Yes, Yoda. Just keep running!

Eventually, Leia got distracted, and Yoda was able to do what he loves best: sit in the snow and watch the storm.
