About My Corgi(s):
Buddy was our families first corgi... My son was his person and Buddy was the best cancer fighter (human or other) that I have ever known. Buddy lost his fight on June 13, 2011- roughly 6 months after beginning treatment for osteoscarcoma that included three types of chemo following a leg amputation for a tumor in his front shoulder.
Our canine family also includes Maggie- a very bossy female corgi rescue and Dog ( aka Sirius Black )- a very large, definitely NOT a corgi rescue who found me and came into the picture near the end of our brave Buddy's battle.
I'm so sorry for the loss of Buddy, but thank you so much for sharing your story. You all loved him so much and he knew it. I'll be thinking of you all and especially Buddy's boy...I'm sure it is so very hard on him.
Jake was diagnosed with hemangiopericytoma. It started with a small lump on his foot that he obsessively licked. After the biopsy, we took him to an oncology center in Boston. They suggested 15 weeks of radiation therapy. Knowing Jake and his constant licking, we felt he would not be a good candidate for it and with our vet's guidance, opted for the amputation. He gets along fine and has no problem getting around or going up and down stairs. I do have a dog stroller which he enjoys especially the attention he gets. If you have any other questions, let me know.
