Meet Bear, a 10-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He hangs out with his “mom” at their 1627 Connecticut Avenue store, Coffee & the Works. Bear loves to sit in the sun in front of the store, as he was doing Saturday afternoon when Luis took his photo.
Pembroke Welsh Corgis are herding dogs: “As working dogs, Pembrokes were originally used to herd sheep, horses and cattle, a task they accomplished by ‘nipping’ at their heels, their short legs helping kicks pass safely over their heads.”
In case you are wondering, this is the breed that The Queen has had for decades.
