We're not one dog people either. After Winston died on August 12th I was absolutely heartbroken and even though we still had our West Highland Terrier and Beagle Foxhound I could find no solace. We started searching for a new Pembroke within a couple of weeks. Lots of people told me the only way to mend a broken heart was to get a new puppy or rescue another Corgi and even though I was crying every day for Winston (like I'd lost a child) I knew in my heart it was true. When I play with Wilson and watch his total cuteness it doesn't make me feel sad. I still cry for Winston (I know it's been 15 weeks) but it's less and less and I know that having Wilson is filling the empty place left by Winston. I definitely recommend getting a new Corgi when you lose one. I'm sorry you lost your JR to an accident. I know he and AJ had wonderful lives with you and your two new babies have hit the jackpot with someone like you ! Thank you for sharing. JOYCE
Do you still have JR and AJ ? Sammy and Missy are adorable. We haven't had a puppy for 10 1/2 years so we're being kept on our toes too ! It's a lot of work, but worth it to end up with a well behaved adult Corgi !
Thanks for your email. I was happy to find the MyCorgi.com at this time. I think that it will help me through this transition. I am putting applications in to several rescue groups. Hopefully I'll find some cardis who need a good home and want to own 2 humans. My husband and I miss our girls. But we had a long, long party with them.
Your dogs look like a Tricreek dog named Bear. He had that pretty brown brindle coat too.
We've always brought new pets into the home and fortunately it's always worked out perfectly. However, your advice about having a new pet meet the current household pets on neutral ground is a really great idea. It makes GOOD sense. Once the pets have "met" it would be almost like it was the current pet's idea to have the new one come to the house to visit after they'd already met somewhere else. (I sound a little crazy I know ! )
It's great that the new Corgi blended in well. Our little Winston got along with our Westie, our beagle fox hound and our two cats. Basically he loved everyone ! The beagle fox hound and the two cats came into our home after Winston. I do wonder if we'd included a new Corgi, male or female, how he would have responded. He was a very docile male. I'd like to find a Corgi, somewhere between the age of one and five. I know we could get a new puppy anytime, but there are Corgis out there that need rescuing and although I'm sure it wouldn't be an easy process, it's something we'd truly consider. Any ideas you have about incorporating a new Corgi would be appreciated.
Thank you for your kind words about the loss of our wonderful Adam Corgi. My wife Sunnee and I miss him so much. He was a great dog, and there are many stories to tell. Your Corgis are exceptionally handsome dogs. Still don't know why The Queen is stuck on just Pembrokes, although I think they're great, too.
