"Oh my, Thank-you for giving Betty Boop a good home and helping her realize that all people aren't horrible...I think of my Teddy (a puppy mill rescue) and even though his life was not good he never endured what Betty Boop did. I am thankful for…"
"Pembroke Welsh Corgis have an undercoat of fine soft fur and an overcoat of coarse hair, which makes their coat water resistant.
I don't think Saber's mom or dad have super strong overcoats but they do have them and maybe they are…"
I live in the country and love animals so I have a variety of dogs(2 of my own corgis, Wynn and daughter Sage)2 rescues,a corgi mix and an Aussie) cats and free range chickens. I am lucky because I get to work close to my home and my dog(s) get to come with me...My husband and I have grown children and several beautiful grandchildren who love to visit and play with the animals.My love for Corgis started when I went to pick a female Corgi and Wynn picked me... he proceeded to walk up to me, lay his tiny little head on my foot and fall asleep.Wynn still parades around my house with one of my shoes and I always have to "look" for my shoe before I can leave...I did a Corgi rescue April (08) I felt like I wanted to help other Corgis...wow what an experience and I learned a lot. I also do corgi rescue when needed..Jackson now lives with Jennifer Markley. Calvin my Cardigan rescue lives with Joanna and Rainy my own Pembroke was rehomed and lives with Joanna's parents where she can be the "princess" and have her own people!
I have 4 Corgis.Wynn is my male Corgi that started this obsession with Corgis and he is now 9. Wynn's daughter Sage is 3 and a Therapy Inc.dog that often travels with me.Wiley my rescue is also about 8. Teddy my other rescue is about 11. Armani is my Aussie who thinks and acts like a corgi! Tank is a 4 year old Corgi mix. We decided to adopt him instead of another Corgi because he had already been in 3 homes at 1 year of age. He can run for hours in our groves and wear off his energy and is such a sweet boy. 1/2.
You are so correct, corgis should live so much longer! Last summer I had total reconstruction of my foot and was in a wheel chair for lengthy time as there were problems. Both boys were in carts, Sonny only desiring to go backwards which caused major problems!Mike would carry the boys outside daily, make sure they could not Swiffer around the entire yard (Lucky was very good at getting into trouble) and they were out for the day. This was not a good life for anyone. In August, Sonny let us know that he was ready to leave this world and we let him go. Lucky was with us until January - he had gained 5# of fluid in a week and we could not stuff him into his cart! By that time I was on crutches, off to the vet who took off enough fluid to do an exam. Large, inoperable tumor behind his heart. So poor Lucky, found in a snowbank on Christmas Eve, IVDD w/surgery, DM and now this. We could have come back 3X week for removal of fluid, but no. We let him go. I still cry. He was my heart dog. We have found a breeder, look her up and let me know! Rogue Country Corgis
Hi Jane! I have been hibernating. Lost both Sonny and Lucky to DM and I just could not be around corgis. Ready for a new pup or a youngish rescue. Are you still breeding? If so, what testing are you doing? After 2 dogs on carts we need to know DM status, I expect you can understand. Sitting here with tears, just looking at the faces of your dogs. Carol
Just wanted to let you know that Calvin is getting rest and doing well! He is now off the tramadol and doggy advil, but is still taking glucosamine. We're keeping him off the couch so he doesn't do any jumping. We got him a harness and plan on walking him soon. Best of all, we've been giving him lots of love and he is back to his lovey, talky, chipper self! Hope you and yours are doing well, gearing up for the fall and winter, staying warm on those cold Minnesota nights!
Thanks for your friend request and comments. My husband and I are really depressed about this whole situation. We had another Corgi about 10 years ago that was such a sweetheart, easy going delightful dog. He unfortunately had an untimely passing. We didn't have any dogs for a couple of years, so heartbroken. We went back to the same breeder and obtained Baxter. Life was great until I added Bailey to the mix. We really thought things would settle with age, time and patience. Ha!
Hey Jane (and gang)! So sorry that I have been lax in my corgi duties as of late. I have been in and out of the hospital, my most recent bout ending today. I also had an amputation earlier this year. It's been rough. I wanted to tell you about Calvin. We found out today that he has a calcification on his vertebrae, and loose joints in his hips. Art just went to get him at the vets. I will have to let you know how it progresses. My poor little bubby. :(
I missed you too! And all my Corgi friends and families. We're flying back to CA with Ricky and Lucy in tow. Once I'm back in CA I hope to spend more time with all of you. xoxo wendy, lucy & ricky-rafa
Who knows, Jane. It's fun being back and seeing old friends. I've gotten so busy with setting up my Long Beach, NY house. I also got caught up with Facebook, helping arrange our HS reunion. I could only handle one social network at a time. Corgis are more fun than reunion planning! But, the reunion was a ball.
