Hi Sam - I was very sorry to read your news. I cannot imagine how tough this time is for you and your family. My mom went through a similar experience with her two corgi's this past winter - two years apart, different breeders and they passed within 6 weeks of each other both from different forms of cancer.
In creating this site you have given so much to corgi lovers and I hope that all the thoughts and prayers being sent your way help, if even in a very small way.
So sorry to hear about Vienna. My husband and I lost our beloved corgi, Comet in December 2011. Comet had cancer also. After oral chemotherapy treatments, Comet became cancer-free. However he was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy and relied on a cart to move about. A week before Christmas, Comet suffered from two seizures. HIs quality of health had declined so we made the humane decision to let him go. You can see his photo on my corgi page.
Oh Sam, I just read about Vienna...you have been and will continue to be in our prayers. Great pictures of the kids! all those smiles! Warms the heart and gets us through these hard times. I hope we see you at the Corgi Picnic. p.s. we went to Dr. Thomson last week - he's a great Dr. - thank you for the referral. I mentioned you to him and he remembered Mocha and Vienna.
I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to Mocha, and now Vienna. I know how terrifying and frustrating it is to deal with medical issues, but even I cannot yet imagine how devastating it is to lose a corgi. I've lost pets before, but it's a different kind of loss with a stumpy baby.
My thoughts are with you and your wife as you go through this ordeal, and I can only hope that when it's time for Vienna to join her buddy on the rainbow bridge, it's a peaceful and painless trip.
Oh dear i had to laugh when i read Vienna graduated with her GED..,
God bless you Sam and Silvia for all your efforts in helping so many of us corgi lovers with so many issues . I cant help but think that you will reap what youve sewn in the days ahead..... I know the Lord is helping you with these trials.
My heart is so sad for what youve gone through and are going through..
Keep on keeping on and remember were all thinking about you..
Mocha's collar is finished! I hope it's okay, but I was not able to do his name in cursive. There just wasn't much space at all. It's hand-carved still. I'll be shipping it either tomorrow or Monday. =)
