I lost my corgi, Langston, 4 weeks ago today on Oct 1 and I'm still devastated. He was 11 1/2 and seemed to be a healthy, happy corgi with many years ahead. And around Aug he became very lethargic, wouldn't go on his daily walks and then when he refused a piece of steak, we knew something was seriously wrong. We got an ultrasound on aTues and he had to be put down by Fri.
Everytime we walk into the house or when someone comes to the door, my heart breaks because Langston was always there to greet us. So many people loved our dog that when they found out he was going to be leaving us, they asked to visit him before he left. He charmed everyone wherever he went. Even people who didn't like dogs, liked Langston. The house is so empty without him.
We do plan to get another corgi, hopefully soon, but I trust that the Universe will determine the right time. In the meantime, this website is helpful although it's bittersweet. I smile and laugh when I see all the wonderful corgis because they connect me with moments when Langston was still here. And of course, at the same time, they remind me that he's not.
