Corgis are, to me, God’s comedy. I understand that they had some breeding reason to make a dog with short legs and a wide body, but come on, look at those guys! THEY ARE WALKING HILARITY! And what’s better than a regular ol’ corgi doing corgi things? A corgi in a costume. Which is why we’re presenting you with 10 corgis all decked out for Halloween. Get ready!
What do you get when an orphaned baby kangaroo hangs out with an orphaned wombat and an orphaned swamp wallaby? Too much adorableness to handle.
