In honor of Mocha, I am starting a bucket list for Vienna as well. She was diagnosed with stage 5 lymphoma today. Please take a look at Mocha's list and share your suggestions on this one. I will post a picture / video as I complete each one.

Dear Corgi friends,

I am overwhelmed with your love, prayers and support. Thank you for taking time to write me, I cherish each thoughtful message / reply. Please forgive me, for I cannot reply every message at this time.

To answer some of your questions. My vet was just as shocked as we were. Mocha and Vienna were born in different parts of Florida to 2 different breeders / parents and time of the year. We have never lived in a hazard area or purposely expose ourselves to cancer causing agent. Due to the cancer had already spread to the bone marrow (stage 5), chemo will not guarantee longer or better quality of life. We like to respectfully decline any financial assistance. However, we like to take this opportunity to encourage you to donate to Corgipals, Sunshine Corgi Rescue, ForPaws and CorgiAid. Open your hearts for a rescue corgi or volunteer to become a foster parent / transport.

Life is never fair, sometimes even cruel. I don't blame God or anyone for the recent events. My faith remain strong, I believe He will continue to provide me with strength to carry on. My wife and I had ran out of tears, perhaps still in shock. We think the best use of our time now is to focus on "Living and celebrate Vienna's life". Corgi nation is closer than ever, let us continue to help one another, be kind and pay it forward.

Dec 23rd 2012 Update

Hello Corgi Friends,

Our beloved Vienna joined Mocha at the rainbow bridge 3 days ago, 1 day before the Mayan calendar ends. 

It's been very difficult coming home without the barking, especially the lack of jingling sound from her collar. We miss having our kitchen floor clean , we miss her drive by licking and nose nudges during dinner time.

We find ourselves staring at the ground level constantly, hoping to find her beautiful smile. Everywhere we look brought back sweet memories.

No, we will never forget them, the holes in our hearts will never be filled, nor another dog will replace their place in our hearts, but in time, our hearts will heal. 

Mocha and Vienna were our kids, the first 10 years of our marriage foundation. They have taught us so much and preparing us for human kids of our own someday. Until then, we will continue to foster and placing rescue corgis in need.

Thank you for your messages and walking this journey with us. Y'all gave us strength, comfort and hope. We will be absent for a lil bit after the holidays, to get away, recharge and heal. Life is short, please hug your corgis, give them a real piece of juicy meat, take lots of picture / videos, go and create more memories.

Happy Holidays! Blessings to you all!


Sam & Silvia

Oh jeeeze, Sam!  Not Vienna, too!  I'm so so sorry!  This is just so hard...especially right on top of Mocha.  I don't know wht to say except that you and Sylvia and Vienna....  

My thoughts are with you Sam, Vienna, and your family.  Extreme sadness to hear of Mocha's passing and Vienna's sickness.  You gave them both the best life and I hope you find comfort in that. Thinking of you!

Sam, Patti and I are so sorry to hear about Vienna!  Bless your heart, y'all must feel like a wall has fallen on you.  Holding you close to our hearts...

So sorry about losing Mocha and now getting this diagnoses for Vienna :(  {{{HUGS}}}

Homemade Frosty Paws are a great treat. I use this for my baby:

Oh Sam. This is just heartbreaking news. I am so sorry.

PS I suggest a cheeseburger.

I am so very sorry to hear about your baby. I'm asking as many angels that will fit, to please fill Vienna's bucket full of love, light, hope, and happiness. Peace be with you and yours.

Sam, I cannot even to begin to thank you for this website, sharing Mocha and Vienna with us. 

Vienna needs to get an almost empty peanut butter jar to see how far her tongue can reach! 

Also, I think Vienna needs to meet a sheep, horse or cow. Just to say hello. 

Oh gosh, this is so terrible! I`m so sorry this is happening to you guys. What about taking her to Burger King and getting her a bacon sundae? Without the chocolate sauce, of course.

OMG! It can't be true.  Say it isn't so.  I can't even begin to say anything that would make the pain any easier.

 {{{{{{ HUGS }}}}}}}}

You, Silvia and Vienna will be in my prayers

I am so beyond sad right now. Can't even think of what to say. Our continued prayers go out to your family.

I am very sorry for the lost of Mocha and the bad news for Vienna. I send you a big hug and so does Sheldon! I would make Vienna the most awesome cake filled with ice cream , peanut butter , treats and lost of them and everything else she loves!
Also let her do what she could never do like go on the couch or run free in a field !

Best of luck to you and your family !  

So very sad to see this news.We also were the fur parents of a double dose of pet illnesses.But We loved our pups and promised to love and take care of them their whole lives.I have You and Sylvia on My prayer list already,so now I just need to add Vienna.May her time come as sweet and peaceful as Mocha's.Take care :).
