When I learned that our friends had adopted a corgi puppy, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I would have his adorable radar ears and wiggle bum in front of my camera lens. Corey Bevo 2, also known as @CoreyTheFriscoCorgi on Instagram, was only 12 weeks old when we had our photo session. Yep, that means I got to enjoy lots of sloppy kisses and puppy breath!
The day I went to meet and photograph Corey, I was greeted with the best welcome ever! With so much adorable puppy dog joy and enthusiasm, he bounced over to me to lick my face, attack my shoes and untie my shoelaces. While I distracted him from using my shoes as chew toys, I rubbed his fuzzy little tummy and asked my friends about Corey’s unique name. Corey Bevo 2 is named after their prior corgi, Corey Bevo, who was the best dog they had ever had. They wanted to carry on his name to honor him so when their new puppy came along, Corey Bevo 2 it was! Now, Corey Bevo is lovingly referred to as the Dogfather. And where did Corey Bevo come from you ask? Well, Corey was the name of my friends’ favorite bartender (seriously, I couldn’t make this stuff up). Bevo happens to be the longhorn mascot for the University of Texas and my friends are huge UT fans. So you put it all together and you’ve got the coolest dog name ever! Gotta love a dog who’s name has such a great story behind it!
Because the sun was lowering on the horizon, we headed off for our photo session. Corey’s dad is a tennis coach so his mom and I thought the tennis courts would be a great setting. We brought along some tennis balls and his dad’s tennis racquet. Adding those personal items made the photos with Corey very special to his parents. And his dad loved it at our reveal!
Once the sun had set and our session came to a close, I thought it would be good to know a little more about Corey, so I asked him about some of his favorite things.
Corey Bevo 2, tell us a little about yourself.
I was born in Fredericksburg, which is much closer to the University of Texas than where I live now. Guess that makes me the cutest Bevo north of Austin!
Do you have a favorite snack?
Oh yes, I love Cheez-its!
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
I am obsessed with toilet paper rolls. I love to unroll all of the toilet paper in the bathrooms. Not only is it good exercise for the forearms, but it’s so much fun to jump around in the sea of soft tissue.
So, you really like toilet paper rolls. What else do you enjoy?
I love all paper! Paper towels, magazines, newspaper….if I can reach it, it’s mine!
Last question, if you had a job, what would you be?
I think I’d be a top sales dog for Charmin toilet paper. They should get rid of that bear and get with a corgi. Our bums are much cuter!
And we couldn’t agree more! Be sure to follow Corey on Instagram @CoreyTheFriscoCorgi to watch him grow and for more adorable photos!
