Just when you though Corgi Beach Day couldn't get any bigger (and stumpier).

So Cal Corgi National hit up Rosie's Dog Beach in Long Beach on Saturday for this season's beach day, and organizers estimate that over 800 corgis were in attendance, even more than the one in April. Not bad, considering they started with only 15 at the first Corgi Beach Day way back in 2012.

Once again activities included a corgi kissing booth, costume contest, and the ever-so-popular corgi limbo contest. All proceeds went towards Queen's Best Stumpy Dog Rescue.

CBD happens every quarter, so they'll be back for the fall. Stay tuned for more corgis!
