We currently have 2 corgis. Lucky was about 9 months old when rescued from a snowbank on Christmas Eve 2001, he has had back surgery after being totally paralyzed and got his new wheels 6/17/10! He has been using a ramp to get up the front steps for about 9 months. Sonny came to us 4/26/09, when his family did not want to take him with them when they moved. He was 8 and never trained, socialized or taught to play! After a year, he still doesn't play or FRAP, but no longer stays in the back room.

disaster averted!

Posted on July 13, 2010 at 10:12am 3 Comments

YIKES! Dogs do roll in everything! We had a short-lived (thank goodness) septic problem, the pipe from the house to the septic tank was somehow crushed by rock. The corgi boys, delighted in rolling in the muck before it could be cleaned up totally, snacks were also tried - YUK! Hot hot day, my poor husband and our origanal contracter who came to help, and very excited dogs who did NOT want to remain on the porch caged in. Still a little more work to do today, at least it is cooler today. Boy,… Continue

Cuts on the neck

Posted on July 4, 2010 at 5:41pm 3 Comments

Well, we haven't had to worry about a corgi with cuts of any kind for at least 4 years! Lucky has been crippled, and when we rescued Sonny a year ago, he just kinda stayed under the desk for a couple of months and then right with us. Well...he discovered the large rocks on the South side of the front yard a couple months ago and likes to climb them, and he climbs around all over the place now. Today we discover blood on his neck, doessn't appear to be a puncture wound or to have come from…

Dogs on Carts or Wheels

Posted on May 5, 2010 at 10:49am 6 Comments

Our Lucky is in need of a cart, or wheels. Has anyone had experience with a dog on a cart? I know it is more humane than having him drag his hind end around, but I worry that once he is mobile again he will run over the cat and the other corgi in his exuberance! He used to be our herder and ball player, and I would love to give him back that ability if that is possible. We live in the country, so he has been quite isolated lately. Any information would be helpful, all the vets say is that he… Continue

I will look into that too. I feel so overwhelmed with all of this. This website is a huge help, finding people that have such great advice and encouraging words. He started his chemo the night we found out, so on Tuesday night. His lymph nodes have gone down to 1/4 the size they were. He is doing okay at the moment. I am just so worried about when it starts to get worse. I constantly worry. I am taking him to a specialist on Tuesday to get some sort of prognosis. Duvall is a little East of Redmond. Do you know where North Bend and Carnation are? Duvall is north of Carnation. Whidbey Island is not all that far. I used to live up North in Bellingham. I am going to go look at Corgiaid right now. Thank you so much. I hope Lucky enjoys having mobility again!

Thanks I just joined the Wa state Corgi board. It's so nice to have such support. I am actually looking at plans and such for a wheelchair. My boyfriends grandfather is going to build him one. I hope it makes a difference. I just feel so bad that he is laying around all the time.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How are you???????

Hello there. CorgiAid received our donated cart today.  The cart will be going to an elderly lady whose vet recommended that she put her corgi "Annie" down.  Annie still has a lot of energy in her. Good to know that we will be helping someone else out.  How are Sonny & Lucky?

Hello there,

Thank you for the info about Corgi Aid. I will look into it. Comet did not actually pass on from the effects of DM.  A couple of days before Christmas in 2011, we put him down because of seizures. The second seizure had affected his movement. He had a hard time eating.  The vet suspected that he had a lesions on his brain.  Prior to his DM diagnosis, he was being treated for cancer. Comet had surgery on his left rear foot to remove a cytoma.  He was on oral chemo for about 10months and became cancer free.  Comet was born with poor vision. When he was 8, we had decided to have a prosthetic implant in his left eye.  He was suffering from severe glaucoma.  My husband and I had called him our little energizer corgi.  Despite all his health problems he just kept going and going. Never complained. Always reminded us to give him his medication if we forgot.   He lived a happy 13 years!

I'm sorry to hear about that, it's a horrible feeling knowing that they may have ended up with someone who doesn't know how much effort and patience it takes to take care of these little furrbabies. Let's hope that the new owners look up and educate themselves on what it takes to take care of a corgi. Thank you for commenting and letting me know that you have gone through this situation as well. Best luck and wishes with your beautiful corgis!

Thank you...I was very happy how quickly and easily it was to set them and have no one move but look at me with full ears.
