Goro, a Japanese corgi needs help for surgery

If any of you watch corgis on YouTube you may have seen a most precious red and white Pembroke named Goro who lives in Japan. He even has his own channel, Goro@Welsh corgi. His owner is Sirowan. I guarantee he will charm you and break your heart. Sirowan has been posting videos of Goro since he was a puppy, and he is now 7 years old. Now he has some serious, but fixable, health problems. He needs surgery by the end of March, but it is very expensive, probably ove $10,000. Many viewers are so hurt his life is in danger and want to help. Maybe MyCorgi.com would be interested in helping this special little guy. From the postings on YouTube apparently CorgiPals has been contacted to try to set something up for Goro. His owner, Sirowan, speaks no English, so apparently someone at CorgiPals who speaks Japanese is trying to contact him. I didn't find anything on the CorgiPals website, but there is a posting and some comments (including one of mine) on their Facebook site. You would need to go to the "Posts by Others" section of their Facebook site, not the Timeline to see a link to the Goro YouTube video "Goro must operate for a disease" and the comments. I would love to donate to help this little guy, and want to do it safely (since it would probably be done over the internet) and in such a way to know that the money would go directly for Goro. I hope everyone sees this so we who love corgis can help this very special little corgi. I'll also post this message on the MyCorgi.com Facebook site.

I have been so sad over Goro. My Ham is now 4 years old and Goro was my inspiration to get a Corgi. Ham is of course the love of me my life.  Please Please PLEASE let me know if you find a way to donate towards Goro / Sirowan.  Thank you!

SiroWan's videos are well worth watching -- beautiful scenes of the Japanese landscape -- Goro is Al & Gwynnie's hero, he's climbed Mt. Fuji.  Sirowan gets some ad revenue from views on his channel, I think.

He needs a double hernia operation and he has an enlarged prostate (he's not neutered). Here is how Sirowan described it on YouTube:

Goro has three diseases.

1. perineal hernia - right side(bad)

2. perineal hernia - left side(little bad)

3. Prostatic hypertrophy


If you go to his YouTube site you can watch some of the videos where this was diagnosed. In the description of the video "Goro must operate for a disease" you will get a more detailed description of what's wrong with him, and how he needs this surgery by the end of March. There is now a very good English translation of what his problems are. The first posting was in broken English, as Sirowan speaks no English. Poor little guy. I hope he can get the help he needs. He will break your heart. He is everything sweet that a corgi can be. I certainly want to help him.
