An Upcoming Corgi Beach Meetup Is Causing a Lot of Drama on Facebook

Sep 09, 2015

Every so often, hundreds of corgis will gather on a beach for a day full of surf, sun, stumpy legs and fluffy butts. Basically, it's one of the best things that could ever happen.

But these corgi beach meetups, which are becoming more popular around the country, also create some drama. Take, for instance, the 2015 Corgi Beach Meet, planned for this Sunday in Chicago. As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 2,200 people had RSVP'd "yes" on the Facebook event. That is, obviously, way too many people — and Chicago corgi owners are not happy about it, as Jezebel pointed out.

To be fair, though, this the very first rule listed on the page: "Keeping this event public, but please control the level of invites by only sharing/inviting to people you know have a Corgi or valid interest in attending." This raises an important question:

One corgi owner said "the idea of even hundreds of dogless strangers trying to pet/pick up/love my dog" concerned her, which is totally understandable. And kind of a bummer. (Connor Tomaka, who raised the question above, suggested a "viewing deck or a roped off section" for the corgi-less spectators, but that likely wouldn't help the overcrowding.)

Here's the thing, though: millennials love corgis, and millennials have built their brand around flakiness and indecision. They'll click "attending" and then decide to stay home and watch Family Feud in their underwear instead. Trust me, most of these corgi-loving weirdos who RSVP'd certainly do not have the wherewithal to get themselves to a beach on a Sunday at noon. So hopefully all the drama just works itself out, and the corgis will be able to run free.
