Frapping at the Bridge Pumpkin 8-2001 to 4-2017

My beautiful, fabulous world travel companion and my heart, Pumpkin, gave up her courageous battle with kidney disease April 26th.  She almost made it to 16 years old, and I am heart broken. My heart has a Cardi sized hole in it.  I was never alone, her striking Corgi eyes were always looking into my soul, she was constantly by my side.  I will forever miss her, she was so loved.

Pumpkin is 13 today!

Today Pumpkin is 13! Am I the luckiest, I know I'm the happiest because of her.  Of course she's slower but she still hops along for her walk, she sleeps much more and that's when the grey around her eyes shows, but most of the time she looks like a puppy.  Play...oh yeah, never ignores a toy, gets each one out of the basket, shakes it and growls.  She always makes me laugh. It's a very, very…

Happy Birthday Pumpkin

I can see that sometimes it's an effort to get up after a snooze, and her hearing isn't what it was, but when she hops along the sidewalk I'm thrilled. She still has that puppy look with a little grey eye liner! This evening all her dog neighbors will get a pupcake & wish her the best. I'm the luckiest corgi mom…

Happy Birthday Bunnie

Pumpkin is 11 years old today.  Happy & healthy.  I'm so very fortunate to have had the pleasure of her company for 11 years. We've travelled the world together.  I look forward to many more wonderful years together.

The Queen's Corgis

The Queen has a new Website and I thought this would be of interest:

The current Queen is, of course, associated with the Corgi. The breed was introduced to the Royal Family by her father, King George VI, in 1933 when he bought a Corgi called Dookie from a local kennels. The animal proved popular with his daughters and was described as ‘unquestionably the character of the Princesses’ delightful canine family’ and ‘a born sentimentalist’. A second Corgi was acquired called Jane who… Continue

To Corgis with Love

This was just fantastic to watch. It brought tears to my eyes, very moving. You really captured the "eyes" of the little ones in the finale. Thank you.
