Technically, Luca is not my first puppy. I grew up with several dogs in and out of my life. We went through a couple of animal shelter dogs that had biting problems with my younger brother and one with chewing problems. We finally found a suitable dog for our family after a couple of years of searching. She was a red mini dachshund named Jasmine. A few years later after a move to the country, we got Ginger. She is a sheltie/lab/chow mix and she is the sweetest dog in the world. My family loves our pets and they live happy lives. After Jasmine passed in 2009 due to sickness, my mom got Molly. She is a black and tan mini weenie and she is the most precious little thing I've ever met. Her and Ginger are best friends. :] and they love my mom's cats Sasha and Gizmo too!
Now Luca is going to be MY first puppy. She's the first member of MY family. My wonderful fiance and best friend will be in Afghanistan until next thanksgiving and this puppy is our first baby. She is going to be the vent for all the love that I have and she will be my best friend while he is away. I'm researching and learning all that I can before she comes home so I can be ready to give her the best life possible and so she can be the best companion for me.
Finding this website has been the best thing for my preparation. I had no idea so many people loved corgis so much. I can't wait to find more Louisiana corgis to be friends with and maybe even East Texas corgis too!
