My name is Eileen and I recently lost the love of my life in June 2012. Although, I am married, Katie and I had a bond that will not break just because her little body gave out, and she crossed the bridge. I am here to talk about her as much as people will listen.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
On June 12, 2012, my beautiful blonde, Katie passed away. She was adopted from a very high kill shelter. They told me that she was a shepherd, but I knew the truth. The day of adoption, I felt like I had won the lottery. I had no clue how much this joy this gorgeous girl would give me. We took vacations together, went on beach trips, park trips, outdoor dining, hiking trails, art galleries, and keeping me company through my many surgeries. She knew exactly when I needed a wet kiss. She was the "Queen of the House" and everybody knew it! She had the other dogs in check, they weren't even allowed to be in the same room as her. Who rescued who? Katie definitely rescued me. I am forever grateful to have had the honor and privilege of being in her life. I will always love you, my sweet angel.

Eileen, I am so sorry for your loss of Katie. I recently joined corgi.com just recently after of loss my Annie to cancer in July. Her death was totally unexpected and very devastating. I can't believe all the kind words I recieved from total strangers. This is a very warm website.
I wasn't expecting to get another dog so soon, as I had to put my 16 year old Cujo to sleep the end of April and lost my sweet corgi Annie the end of July. I had Jake, my 8 yr old corgi. We were presented with the opportunity to adopt 7 year old Gryffin. He was a rescue that had a history of abuse and needed a home. Jake has a new buddy and I fell in love with him quickly. I still miss my Annie every day and as you did with your Katie, we had a special bond.
I know your heart will heal in time, but it sure hurts in the meantime. Thoughts are with you.
Eileen, I just read your profile and saw that you lost Katie. Our 10 1/2 year old Winston died seven weeks ago and we're heart broken. I can't tell you how helpful everyone on this website has been to me. Being able to talk with other Corgi owners who love their pets as much as we do, and to find others who have lost theirs recently has been so helpful. I can honestly say I'm doing so much better because of being able to connect with so many other wonderful people. We have two other dogs as well, but there was just something about my relationship with Winston that I can't explain. It almost seems like we lost a child. Of course I hesitate to say that, since there may be someone who has lost their son or daughter, and losing a pet could never compare. Feel free to share anytime. I will listen as much as you want to talk. In my opinion it's helpful to post pictures of Katie so you can share her with everyone. I have spent hours on this website looking at Corgi photos and watching videos, and yes I have cried and cried, but it's been a good outlet. I'm crying now . . . Take care, Joyce
