We have a tri named Bridget, and we had two great corgis, Shorty and Winnie. Winnie became paralyzed and used a wheelchair which never slowed her down. I wrote a series of books based on Winnie's exploits called The Winnie Chronicles. I'm a graphic artist by trade but spend an awful lot of time writing these books.
I guess I identify with them a little too much. Bridget is a rescue from Arkansas. She is on the small side and though not humble, she is very sweet. She loves people and only tolerates dogs. We adopted her at 18 month and she will be 4 in September. She's plagued with a genetic defect in her left eye that we are treating with many different eye drops and huge amounts of money. We are happy to do it and it makes Bridget feel great.
