Six years ago I was looking up some info about corgis and came across this site. I am so grateful for finding such a wonderful corgi community. I have met some very wonderful people. Lance got to go to corgi meet ups with his buddies and without this site that wouldn't have been possible to meet other corgi owners.
Lance was diagnosed with auto immune issues three years ago. His liver stopped functioning properly, and leaking fluid into his abdomen. We had the fluid drained last weekend and within five days it filled back up more and ended up starting to fill up to his lungs making it hard to breathe and eat.
It is with great sadness I have to write this blog, we loved him so much. I will miss snuggling with my little snug bug, as well as my two daughters, husband and Tucker will miss his play mate even if they werent able to play recently. We rescued Tucker 3 years ago ( March 6, 2011), shortly before we found out Lance was sick (July 2011). He came into our home like he had always been there. He comforted Lance when he wan't feeling well and waited patiently til he felt better. What a lucky boy Lance was to have Tucker be so patient with him. Tucker found his long lost brother. There is so much we will miss about Lance. He never played favorites and loved us all equally.
There is never enough time with them no matter what. He just had his 1/2 birthday which made him 8 1/2 on the 30th of April.
Rest In Peace Lance without pain, we love you so veryyyyyyy much. <3
Thanks so much Jennifer, appreciate it!!
I'm so sorry. :(
Thank You Jane!
So very terrible! It's good he had 8 years to share with you and the world. I suppose in dog years that's a respectable lifetime. But how sad it is that dogs can't live as long as their humans do. Sorry he suffered, and sorry you are suffering now.
Thank You, appreciate the kind words. I am glad he is out of pain, poor guy.
I'm sorry Lance could not be with you longer, but he certainly made his mark both in the life of your family and on this site where he had so many admirers. My thoughts are with you.
Thanks Anna, glad he had so many admirers, corgis are magnets for admirers for sure :)....Thanks for your kind words.
oh no! I was so sad to see this! I'm so sorry for your loss, Natalie.... RIP, little Lance :(
Thanks Laura, and thank you for the friend request!
I'm so sorry for your loss Natalie. I remember joining MyCorgi and Lance being one of the very special (and few) Cardigans on it. You are all in my thoughts. <3
Thank You so much Ludi, appreciate it!! I remember when you joined mycorgi too, and becoming friends, blue merles will always have a special place in my heart (all corgis do) but something about the blue merles.
Its so hard to let them go. So hard. You are in my thoughts. :(
