Life gets rough for everyone and I am not excluded from that. However, most of the time I take things a little more roughly than other people might. I'm an easily excited person, both bad and good. When something bad happens sometimes it feels like the end of the world. I stress, no, I FEAR that something bad is going happen. A fear so strong that I used to hide in my home for days, afraid to leave the house. It used to be difficult to find a reason to get up out of bed and do the things I need to do. 

Clue has changed my life. He's that important being in my life that lets me know that I can't stay in bed all day. Sure, sometimes it's frustrating and I just want to lay in bed and pout, but he cries at me till I get up. I might whine and complain about it as I put on my slippers, clip on his leash and take him outside. But when we get outside I find out it is a beautiful day and Clue is more than happy to share it with me.

He's that smiling face that greets me when I get home from a rough day at work. Clue has the best smile, and it is extremely contagious. He's honestly happy to see me no matter if I have been gone five minuets or eight hours. No one is ever that happy to see me! It's an amazing feeling. 

Just the other day I was laying on my couch,  upset over a phone call from my grandma, letting me know she has cancer. It made me feel ill myself and I couldn't bring myself to stop crying, when without calling, or signalling, Clue jumped onto the couch and laid down on my chest with his head on top of his paws. He looked me straight in the eyes and let out a deep sigh. Like he understood how I was feeling, and he was sorry, but things were going to be okay. He just let me hold him there for the longest time without even wiggling once. How amazing is that?

I find myself now going on long walks, visiting the dog park, Clue even joins me in the car for a ride when running to the store. I get out a lot more than I used to. He makes everything easy. He makes everything better. Who knew someone so small could change your life so much. I love him more than anything, he is my baby, he is my support, he is my reason.

Sorry about your grandmother, I hope she is ok.  Sounds like you have an amazing relationship with your corgi, though.  That's awesome.

These creatures have a way of helping us live up to who they think we are.

Woohoo! Fighters:D Kickin cancer's touche out the door!:) I realized after I posted that I said my great grandma had it pretty bad-I forgot to include that she's still around too haha. I didn't think that it could be taken as a past tense of her life rather than of her having cancer:) 

Ziggy is lots of fun-and he never protests when I lay my big ol' head on him and use him as a pillow lol.. I am doing my best to do good for him and he's going above and beyond just by letting me pet his ears and take him for a walk.

I bet Clue does get bunches!:) He's super handsome haha. They really are one of a kind..

sorry to hear about your grandma. I;m glad you have Clue to be there for you. Stay strong for your self and your grandma. She will need you.

Comment by Rebecca And Clue on February 11, 2012 at 4:16pm

She's had it before along with my mother who had two different types. It's a rough and scary thing each time. But Clue is helping me stay positive about things. :) 

Ziggy sounds like he's so much fun. Hehe, you guys support each other and help do what is best for one another, right? C: 

I love taking Clue out too, he gets a lot of attention as well and I am also so proud to have him trotting along side me. Corgi's are one of a kind!

I'm sorry about your grandma-cancer is a scary thing, my great grandma on my mom's side had it fairly bad, my grandma on my dad's side is going through it right now-she was going through the chemo/radiation process the last time I visited, even-they got most of hers though,-and my mom had it a while ago, but they got it all out with surgery-but she still has to go back every other year to get checked out and make sure it hasn't come back. It sounds good for your grandma though, that they got most of it!:) 

It's amazing what Clue does for you:) Ziggy kinda does that for me, but in a twisted manor lol. When I wake up, I am the one that has to trudge him along to get our day started-but before I wasn't getting up at all pretty much, so it's still an improvement!:) I wake up excited to go on a walks and stuff. Ziggy.. Not so much, haha. I have to carry him across the street from our house to start our walks off otherwise he sits down at the end of the driveway and no matter how many times I firmly tug on his leash and try to call him and bribe him-even with small cheese blocks, which I cut up a half slice of cheese worths for an occasional treat,-so yupp, I gotta pick him up and lug him over to the other side then he gets that I mean it, we're walking and he will waddle along with me haha. Of course, he over dramatizes his and once we even see one, he starts walking at a snails pace LOL.

But I love it. I got so many looks from people in their cars-like they're double checking to make sure that he is a dog xD An older lady earlier had such a huge smile staring at him as she drove past (very slowly I might add) that it made me laugh-she even circled the block to look again! It made me feel great, haha.(I know I shouldn't feel like she's given me a huge compliment, because of course it was Ziggy she was smitten with... But I'm just so proud of him haha, I can't help it!:P)

I think that dogs, corgis in particular, are the epitome of optimism.  There is nothing in the their little faces that doesn't say "We can get through this.  Let's get going!"  I am so happy you have Clue.  Sounds like that brave, optimistic part of us all came to you in a short stubby package.  Take care1

Corgis are just what the doctor ordered. :]  

Comment by Rebecca And Clue on February 11, 2012 at 9:10am

Thank you both. It's going to be alright I think, they removed most of it and she is going to start chemo. 

I want to do that, I have been thinking about it for a while, I think he would do great. We're both pretty young though and I don't know the requirements. But I should start looking into it! He'd be great. He's the biggest people person and such a lover.
