About 4 months after my beloved best friend of 17 years died (a miniature Cocker Spaniel named "Rusty") I was devastated & terribly depressed. It was then my brother & sister-in-law needed a puppy sitter while they moved. Of course, I was NOT ready for a new best friend, especially not a persnickety little Corgi whith attintude. I told them I'd watch her til they got moved, but I couldn't keep her. Conveniently, they wouldn't take her back. Well, that was almost 9 years ago and we are inseparable! I wouldn't trade her for all the tea in China!
