Carol, I will check the breeder out this eve. I'm getting ready to leave and go babysit grandchildren for 4 days:) Sage is coming along to help me! Wynn seems to be getting better but we had to add potassium to his new bladder stone diet and then he ran a fever and is also on anitbiotics...I can't imagine how difficult it must have been trying to take care of 2 aging corgis in carts and having surgery...lucky for them they had you so they could have a good life. I hope you find the perfect pup...
Oh Carol, I am so sorry for your loss...I can only imagine the heartbreak.
I am no longer breeding. I wanted to breed Sage but I can't find a good enough male for my sweet girl...so I may not be carrying on the bloodline. This will be the last year I would even consider breeding her before she gets too old.
My rescue Teddy is getting older(about 11) and Wynn is over 9 with a bladder stone. Although they are in fairly good health...I just wish Corgis could live much longer...
Thanks I am going to measure him tonight. He is a trooper so I am going to push for the 2 years! In hopes he is comfortable and enjoys every minute of it! I am seeing the oncologist on Tuesday and I will for sure update everyone. I will check out that book too. Thanks again. :)
I will look into that too. I feel so overwhelmed with all of this. This website is a huge help, finding people that have such great advice and encouraging words. He started his chemo the night we found out, so on Tuesday night. His lymph nodes have gone down to 1/4 the size they were. He is doing okay at the moment. I am just so worried about when it starts to get worse. I constantly worry. I am taking him to a specialist on Tuesday to get some sort of prognosis. Duvall is a little East of Redmond. Do you know where North Bend and Carnation are? Duvall is north of Carnation. Whidbey Island is not all that far. I used to live up North in Bellingham. I am going to go look at Corgiaid right now. Thank you so much. I hope Lucky enjoys having mobility again!
Thanks I just joined the Wa state Corgi board. It's so nice to have such support. I am actually looking at plans and such for a wheelchair. My boyfriends grandfather is going to build him one. I hope it makes a difference. I just feel so bad that he is laying around all the time.
Hello there. CorgiAid received our donated cart today. The cart will be going to an elderly lady whose vet recommended that she put her corgi "Annie" down. Annie still has a lot of energy in her. Good to know that we will be helping someone else out. How are Sonny & Lucky?
Thank you for the info about Corgi Aid. I will look into it. Comet did not actually pass on from the effects of DM. A couple of days before Christmas in 2011, we put him down because of seizures. The second seizure had affected his movement. He had a hard time eating. The vet suspected that he had a lesions on his brain. Prior to his DM diagnosis, he was being treated for cancer. Comet had surgery on his left rear foot to remove a cytoma. He was on oral chemo for about 10months and became cancer free. Comet was born with poor vision. When he was 8, we had decided to have a prosthetic implant in his left eye. He was suffering from severe glaucoma. My husband and I had called him our little energizer corgi. Despite all his health problems he just kept going and going. Never complained. Always reminded us to give him his medication if we forgot. He lived a happy 13 years!

I'm sorry to hear about that, it's a horrible feeling knowing that they may have ended up with someone who doesn't know how much effort and patience it takes to take care of these little furrbabies. Let's hope that the new owners look up and educate themselves on what it takes to take care of a corgi. Thank you for commenting and letting me know that you have gone through this situation as well. Best luck and wishes with your beautiful corgis!
