HI all, I've been away for awhile.  Just wanted to drop by and say "hi" and hope you are all doing as well as you can be.  Joy and Butter

I am holding tight to my corgi now as I just found out from the oncologist I need to go see the surgeon asap!!!! She's always there when I need her.

Great drawing! it's so amazing when were able to do something we haven't been able to do in a long time. I hiked on Sunday after a multiple level spinal fusion and it's done wonders for my spirits. I remember when I couldn't walk. I'm so glad you were able to draw!

My name is Carol, and I am medically disabled from too many diseases to list. I most recently had my spine fused again. I am currently home with our 2 corgis who make sure I take my meds and do what I am supposed to do. Eight years agos, I had a 2 vessel heart bypass and followed by a month in the hospital with my Addison's disease (the MD "forgot" to give me the meds that I take to live!) Anyway, our angel corgi Odie, now truley an angel as he passed on 4 years ago, stayed by my side when I came home and took care of me...Odie was sick all his life, and I think that it came natural for him to take care of me!

My corgi Tia has saved my sanity and faith several times. Ten years agi I was swing dancing and had an accident that left me disabled. Recently I had a spinaL fusion and she and I spend many hours at home recovering. I couldn't walk for about a year.
She also got me through breast cancer four years ago. She would lie right next to me all the days I just slept away. I've been lucky to find friends who like to walk with her and love her too. Wherever I go, she goes!

Julia,
So sorry you had to take a leave from your job. I used to be an elementary music teacher, and decided to change to a "desk" profession because it was just too hard on the body. The corgis are great at keeping you moving-Gus is my alarm clock! 5:30 every morning, and he hasn't figured out weekends yet-every day is the same to him! Best wishes for the future, and try not to get discouraged.

Hi, all. Today I took a medical leave from my job in elementary education, which could be the beginning of permanent disability status. This is a major move. My little Lilliput does force me to keep on getting up and getting on, but I'm not sure where we'll go from here. She is a joy to me, but sometimes she needs more than I want to give. She does force me to move, and she does reward me in many ways. So, on to the future.

Julia

Welcome Wendy and Jazz! Corgis are so smart and fun to work with. I have three and we have taken obedience, therapy dog certification, herding, agility and adventure dog activities together. We bet Jazz is going to be fabulous! All the best from Bear, Tasha and Linus, Williamsburg, VA

Hi, I live in Atascadero, Calif. I recently brought home a Corgi puppy named Jazz. I'm planning on making her my service dog in the future. I'm also planning on getting Jazz into a few herding classes for fun.

I have fibromyalgia too and other diseases. Yes, Butter gets me moving more and certainly cheers me up when we play. Dogs are great for getting one's mind off of one's problems. Joy :)
