Just a quick update to let you know how Katie and Jack, my rescues, are coming along. Jack, the 2 year old tri son, is just "Happy Jack"...he is a clown and runs and plays and is completely house broken now. He has attached him self to me and is coming along great with hubby, grandma, son, etc. I actually love his long tail and it helps me find him if he is in the garden!
Katie is recovering well from her injuries. She is 3 going on 4 and a tan and white. For those that haven't followed, Katie was attacted by something large and had many severe injuries, punctures on her lower back. The previous owner did nothing until she was so sick from infection took her to a vet. She also had maggots and they had to trim away dead skin from her back almost halfway up. At least the owner was kind enough to contact Corgi rescue and I saw it on the wheelcorgi site (I have a 10 year old Emma with DM and in a cart outside) Her back was raw and awfull looking when I got her and my vet did 6 cold lazer treatments and I did water treatments and her fur is growing back at a wonderful rate. She is very sweet but oh so skiddish! I wonder what happened to her from her 2 previous owners. Only now am I and only I, able to pick her up and sit with her (she falls asleep from the petting) and she sleeps in bed cuddled up to me. I want my elderly mom to have her for a time, but I am not sure how this will work. I may have to wait til mom has her hip replacment as the cane she uses scares Katie to death. Again makes me wonder what happened to her.
Any words of advise about this skiddishness would be appreciated, I know time and love will make the difference. Even tho it is alot of work, esp for me having RA and such, I am sure glad I did this...so I encourage anyone out there to think about rescues when adding to their families!!
Corgi luv from Katie, Jack & Emma (the wheelcorgi:)
