Why? Do you have one?
I was talking to my folks about how I was thinking of getting a dog and I mentioned corgis. My dad said, "You don't want one of those, those are girl dogs." So I thought I put up a poll to see if that was how people thought of corgis. And in the proud tradition of Giant Bomb posts I had a typo the subject line.
Nah. Will Smith has one and he loves her.

Dogs always fall into gender/class stereotypes but ultimately it's up to the owner who trains the dog. Small sized chihuahuas aren't annoying and for rich white girls either, they will grow up and be what you make them to be.
I don't think Dogs can be "girl dogs" or "manly dogs." They're not property or fashion accessories, they're friends that you keep with you. I think it's less about the particular breed of dog and more about whether or not that individual dog's personality matches up well with yours.
Corgis are for people who are willing to have an incredibly high maintenance dog. They are small but they are absolutely a working breed, so they need tons of physical activity. They are highly territorial, they will try to herd anything that moves, and they are notable for being the worst shedding breed of dog. They range in temperament from intense to neurotic, and perhaps worst of all they are incredibly easy to over feed, and the vast majority of corgis you see are obese because their owners are either uninformed, weak willed, or lazy.
They are not girl dogs or boy dogs, they are dogs for people who know what the fuck they are doing.
Corgis are Welsh herding dogs. Manly men herd sheep on the Hills of Wales while smoking pipes. With their faithful Corgis.
Dog's are for people.
Doesn't matter what breed they are.
Get a Corgi, screw your dad.
Don't follow the second part of this advice. If your dad says that Corgis are only for girls, he's probably not going to be cool with you making sexual advances toward him.
Cats > Dogs
Mostly because there are a shitton of dogs in my neighborhood and they get into barking contests(seems like it) in the wii hours of the morning, including my neighbor's dogs, fuck dogs.
To answer your question, no, pets are for people, except Chihuahuas, they were put on earth by the devil for the devil's minions.
I would totally agree with you day if they weren't so cute. They have all the qualities of what I consider "girl" dogs, mostly being small, but then they are so energetic and cute. I occasionally have to watch two Corgis, and it is the best because no matter what they are always happy to see me and I'm so happy to see them.
