30 year old photo - Rookie, w. baby Lindsay

Rookie loved Lindsay and was always there protecting her. I can't imagine ever worrying about how Rookie would react to the birth of Lindsay, our first baby. I also can't imagine keeping them apart. Prior to our babies, Rookie was always with me. No matter how late I'd be up working, he'd be right there with his regal head on my foot. He was incensed when we came home with a new Corgi, Maggie. Maggie was 14 wks. and Rookie was 6 mo. He tried every which way to keep from entering a room. When she persevered, he pushed her into our pool. Eventually they became inseparable best friends. But, Maggie never was devoted to the babies like Rookie. Maybe Rookie just kept them to himself.

How do I ever get over losing my best friend? I had to make the awful decision to send her over The Bridge on Oct 10 2011. Still to this day I cry over losing her. I do have a new puppy coming Feb…Continue

What makes today so was on a Friday the 13th of April, 2007.  The day was gorgeous after a good rain the day before...  Today was the same gorgeous day, got an inch of rain yesterday.  I've done OK with all the other April 13th days  but today looks like and feels like that day.  He was a good doggie.  I'm glad we have Joey, Katie, Hank and Bevy Lou and 4 lil' blessings.  Katie's 5th birthday will be 3 days from now. I am just so amazed how attached I get to the Pembroke Welsh Corgi breed.  I love them to pieces!

Kathy, I remember his story and corgi hugs to you and Scott. They can't be forgotten but remembered with smiles..

Lucy & Ricky-Rafa (Wendy/Jack ) Thank you so much for your posting. I sure hope Pippin can heal my wounded heart. Scooter was a beauty inside and out. I still miss her every hours of every day. Pippin (6 weeks tomorrow!) is coming from a local breeder that has "Ranch" bred dogs. They are on the smaller side of the standard. They work cattle and are rasied around horses.She will be smaller than Scooter was. Scooter was at the top of the standard at 28 "fit" pound. Pippin I'm guessing will be around 21 22 pounds or so. In 2007 when Scooter's was dignosied with Addison's Disease I called her breeder in Oregon to let her know. I never heard from her again. Anyway with that Addison's her lines I didn't want to get another puppy from her. I really wasn't looking for another puppy marked like Scooter BUT Pippin's marking are looking more and more like Scooter markings right down to the White #1 on the back of her neck! So Pippin will have have Big Paw Prints to fill, and I'll sure she can do that!

Randy,  I'm glad you found my suggestion of an album helpful.  And once again I can relate to your situation, this time in terms of the pictures, or lack of.  I found nearly the same thing and I suspect it's a common occurrence.  Here's what I wrote some months ago:

Thousands of Corgi Pictures

We can remember and cherish the past but we can't change it.  We can do better the next time around though.

Scooter was a stunning Corgi. I feel for you. It's so hard losing your best friend. I think having a new puppy is the best remedy for grief. Is Pippin from the same breeder? Pippin looks like a little beauty.

Mindy, I'm so glad that you have Tator now. While no one can take the place of Spud, I hope that your having Tator to hold today brings you comfort. You will soon be making so many happy new memories with Tator. It may not feel that time is easing your pain, but it will. Over time you'll be able to look back on all the funny/ silly moments with Spud and laugh from the memories. Time heals. I never, ever thought I'd get over the loss of Rookie, (in the photo for this group w. the baby). But just yesterday my husband and I were laughing so hard at some of his crazy antics. I still miss him, but treasure the time we had together, and every minute with my Corgis since Rookie.

Mindy,  I had a wonderful cat named Spud for 18 years. I am sure your Spud was special as well. Love the followup with Tator! I don't believe we can ever forget them but in time we focus more on the joy and less on the pain.

Today is the year anniversary since I had to put Spud down. It doesn't get any easier but I will always remember that little guy romping around in the snow. He loved it. Looked like a little bunny rabbit hopping around from drift to drift. Spud, you are always in my heart and the memories that I have of you will always be there. Even though I have Tator now, you will always be my little man and best friend.

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful words of comfort. It's true that sorrow shared is sorrow diminished. I'm trying very hard to put the events of the past week into the background so I can remember just the best times--our "walkies," playing on the floor, napping together on the couch, him chasing the vacuum, bouncing a ball off his nose, barking at the hair dryer, and all the other wonderful times we had together. He loved to chase rabbits out of the yard. It was really his yard and his gardens--I just took care of them. :)  I took Doug's advice and started an album. I've been gathering all the pictures together and found (sadly) that there is not a single picture of the two of us. I was always the picture taker, so there are lots of Stinky Wink alone, and with other people. Still, that's okay. I'm thankful I have all of those. They are going to make a very special memorial to a wonderful friend and his life. My son is making a grave-stone, which we will set in the spring. Thanks again everyone!
