Stitch's Story

Posted on August 22, 2012 at 3:30pm 34 Comments

Hello,

Stitch and I are new to My Corgi.  I wish I had known about it sooner.  I found this site while looking for help for my little Stitchy.  Sam's post on Mocha and Vienna came up in my search.

This is our story:

Stitch came to us 7 years ago at 3 months old, as a dog for our children, then ages 7 and 9.  I have to admit, when we saw him for the first time, I knew nothing about Corgi's and thought, " How in the world is he going to keep up with the kids with…

Happy belated birthday to Stitch! I live in CT too! Maybe our corgis could meet some day!

I'm so happy for you guys, Stitch is looking great, and he is so so lucky to have you. What a blessing to see him doing well. I pray that he continues to do well and will be with you for quite some time. Happy Birthday! and have a great Mothers Day. You deserve it.

Yes, the Beach Day was at Huntington Dog Beach in So. Cal.  Couldn't believe all the corgis that were there.

Here is a link to buzzfeed- what happens when 140+ corgis have a beach party. It's pretty cute. Love the captions.

Glad to hear Stitch is enjoying life.

Bentley turned 1 on March 24th.  He is a goofy corgi that loves to fetch and catch his toys.  He loves his squeaky froggy. A couple of weeks ago, we took Bentley for his first trip to the dog beach for a corgi meet up.  He was not too amused by the water but enjoyed the sand and checking out the other corgis.

Take care.  :)

Just checking to see how everyone and Stitch is doing.

I've spent the last 10 minutes reading your blogs about Stitch. Your story is very touching and by the sound of it, Stitch is a very lucky pup to be a part of such a loving family. He is in good hands. I wanted to take a moment to comment regarding the switch in diet for Stitch. This is a great idea. Before my Maple, (who is almost 3) I had a dog. Cinnamon, who was a poodle mix, for almost 18 years. When she was 14 she tore her ACL and was diagnosed with pre-kidney disease. This is not good since dogs only have 1 kidney. I met with different vets, and I finally stuck with one who seemed the most passionate about his work. He told me the cons of commercial dog food and how it affects them. He instructed me to take Cinnamon off the commercial dog food since it was hard on her kidney and to put her on an organic diet. So from that point on, it was ground turkey/brown rice/green beans and broccoli for her. She also took meds twice a day to regulate her sugar and water levels. With this, the doc said she didn't have much time on her hands, but it would make her the most comfortable. Cinnamon lasted another 4 years after that, passing away 4 months before her 18th birthday. 

When I decided it was time for another little friend, I researched and fell in love with the corgi breed. I bought Maple from a breeder in Nevada, who was reputable. But as I researched before hand, I knew corgis were predisposed to certain conditions. So I prepared myself for it. I remembered what Cinnamon's vet said and the change I saw in her, so I immediately skipped the commercial dog food and went straight to a diet of ground turkey or chicken, brown rice and whatever vegetables I have. (usually green beans, broccoli or carrots; certain veggies aren't necessarily good for dogs, like corn). I cook her food; most of my family laughs at this idea and wonder why I do this. In actuality, it is very cost effective (commercial dog food is expensive!) and doesn't take much time at all. I cook in bulk for her once a week and refrigerate. 

Benefits: Shiny, soft fur. Breath isn't as stinky. Bm's are easy. Not so gassy. But more importantly, the effects it has on her insides from all the nutrients and live food! I am a firm believer that you are what you eat! Even if you are a doggy! :)

My thoughts will be with Stitch and your family. And by the way, Stitch is freakin' adorable!

Welcome.  I am so sorry to hear of Stitch's illness.  I also believe in trying any alternative remedies as long as they are not harmful as indicated by Carol below. You might look at earthclinic.com and see if you find any ideas there.
