"That does sound the same. Thank you for your story. I am hoping she will be feeling better soon, too. Unfortunately, she doesn't have much of a tail (just a nub), so it's hard to tell just based on that for me :( "

I have a 4 year old Corgi mix. Her name is Sadie. She is a rescue dog, so I'm not sure what she is mixed with...perhaps some kind of terrier. She definitely has Corgi in her though!!! She is super friendly and loving, and I love her more than anything.
