CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Some of Charlottesville’s furry friends gathered on University of Virginia grounds Sunday afternoon. Charlottesville corgi owners met near the Lawn for a new meet-up.

The afternoon included playtime for the corgis and served as a way for the owners to get to know each other. They also discussed the benefits and challenges that come with raising the breed.

Even NBC29'S Annie Schroeder attended with her corgi, Penny. 

The corgi owners say they plan to hold similar meet-ups once a month.
