Three weeks ago, Bailey was frapping in the yard and running full speed as corgis do.  He tripped and slammed his chest into a wood step.  He seemed to be OK, but the next morning Bailey's back legs were paralyzed.  I rushed him to the vet and after tests, they determined he had spinal cord damage.  The vet sent us to a veterinary surgeon and after more tests it showed he needed surgery immediately. The surgery went well.  He stayed at the surgeons for 5 days. He is now recovering at home and is gaining the use of his legs little by little.  I use a sling to help him walk and give him daily massages and meds as needed.  I am thankful that Bailey will someday be frapping with his fur pals again!  The only thing that is a worry to me is that I borrowed the $3,500 to pay for Bailey's surgery.  I contacted a web site called that does fundraisers for corgis who have owners in need.  They are different than Corgiaid(only helps rescues).  If anyone is interested in reading Bailey's story a little more in depth, Bailey's web page is:

FYI---Bailey and I have been My Corgi members since the beginning.  I had to re-register due to my old email address becoming in- accessible.  Before Bailey I had Casey the corgi who died of cancer at a young age. Thanks for listening.

I am so sorry for Bailey.  But I am glad he is getting a little better.  I am also glad you found corgipals.

They do amazing things, and I bet you will get some help with those vet bills.  It is amazing how fast they add up!  Keep going strong Bailey!
