Happy First Birthday Watson! He has been the happiest dog ever. All things are fun and interested him. We have had a tough year with my cancer diagnosis but the joy, love and laughs he provides has helped us focus on the important things in life. He wasn't the dog I started looking for. Originally I was waiting for a pup from a breeder that I had developed a good relationship with hoping for a bluemerle. Unfortunately her litter only produced one pup that they decided to keep. They gave me the name of a good breeder in Chicago that had pups but hers were all spoken for. She then gave me the name of a Breeder of Merit in Iowa that she highly recommended. I made contact but her latest litter was all spoken for. So I contacted a few other people but was fortunate when Cindi, the Iowa, breeder called and said she had a buyer change their mind and I was exactly the home she had wanted for this pup. She wanted a home with another dog and where he would not be home alone often because he was not as independent as some of her other pups. Well that fit us perfectly and I ended up with a black and white with brindle points corgi. Watson has been a joy from the beginning. He is just the right amount of play and cuddle. He is the happiest dog I have every been around. He is popular a t doggie daycare too. My year took an unexpected turn this past fall when I received a devastating cancer diagnoses. We decided to keep Watson and do the best for him while fighting my illness. He provides plenty of comic relief and joy. We will celebrate his birthday with friends and maybe a trip to Petsmart for a new toy he can destroy. There is no way we could adequately reward Watson for the joy he has brought us. In addition I received very good news this week that my weekly chemo treatments have dramatically reduced the stage 4 cancer activity. Things are looking more positive than they have in a long time. Thankyou my corgi family for all your encouragement!
