I haven't posted on here much lately, as Buddy's health rapidly declined after he was diagnosed with HGE. Later this year, I noticed him sort of dragging his back paws when he walked, scraping his toenails on the concrete....He was diagnosed with DM. He did well for a few months, with the use of a cart, but on 9-20-12, we had to make the decision to allow him to cross The Rainbow Bridge. Many heartfelt thanks to all of you who listened and commented on our stories. Buddy was a very special boy who will forever hold a special place deep in my heart.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I had a corgi, Rusty die from DM too.  Buddy is running now. 

It's never an easy decision, no matter the circumstances.  We are so sorry for your loss, may your broken heart heal, though you will never forget your furbaby, Buddy. 

I am so sorry for your loss.  I hope you will find comfort in all the memories you've made together.  


I'm so sorry to hear about Buddy.  I lost my corgi, Betsy, a year ago to DM.  It's a horrible disease.  If and when you're ready to get another, there are breeders out there who test for it and will only breed if the parent is clear or a carrier.  I just brought home a little boy, Ziggy whose father is clear and mother is a carrier, so he'll not be at risk.  The breeder is in Kentucky.  Let me know if you want more information.  There are ways to stop this disease.  It may take time, though.

Wish I didn't get so tongue tied in situations like these, so hard losing a loved one.   Hugs

I am so sorry to hear about poor Buddy. You gave him several very good years and I am sure he knew that and was grateful with his entire Corgi heart. And we all know how large a Corgi's heart is.

Hugs to you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss....it is always so hard to lose our corgi babies.

I note that you rescued him. Thanks.

So very sorry for your loss.  He looks like he had a wonderful life with you.  What an adorable smile. 

I am so so sorry to hear of your loss!

I went through DM with my Ricco and know firsthand how overwhelming it can be...

Not only emotionally, but physically it is very hard to go through!

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time....

So sorry for your loss of Buddy, it's so hard to let go, but now he's   100% again over the Rainbow Bridge with all his new furry friends.

I am so sorry for your loss :( Made me cry yet again on my birthday... check out my birthday story on my page <3
