He is your friend, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

I'm so sorry sheepco. He lived to a respectable age for a Corgi didn't he? Was he a working guy? He sure was handsome. My sympathies to you, I know the pain of losing a "best friend".

RE: In memory.....

Thank you for your hugs and kind words, yesterday was tough. He died of congestive heart failure.

He was a working dog - at his own pace. He would rather herd people than sheep, and mostly too and from the cupboard where the food was kept.

He did have one old ewe he hated, and whenever he could get close enough he'd grab her by the wool on her forehead and shake it :)
Sorry, got to get another tissue.

Your Corgie was so beautiful! I'm sorry for your broken heart and glad he had such a wonderful home. Corgies are very close to being the perfect dog. Small enough to cuddle,the "big dog" personality,smart but not hyper,and so easy to train! PJ

Oh. I am so sorry! :-(

Gus looked VERY distinguished, intelligent and a love! Maybe he's playing with our Heidy Foo Foo now. She had CHF too.

Kindest regards to you and yours from me and mine.

PJ, your description fits Gus to a 'T'... And add funny. He was one of the most humerous dogs I've ever had the pleasure of being owned by. Looks, character, expressions and deeds. No wonder the Q of E has corgis!

Again thanks to all, you, along with my friends at work have made this day easier. C3D, I think all our well-loved pets that have died and hopefully all the homeless strays too, are happy and content. Imagine what it will be like when we humans get to meet them all again in the great beyond? Chaos, but what wonderful chaos... a million wagging tails, kneading paws and purrs rich and deep...

and tail wags will feel like feathers instead of baseball bats, and kneading paws will caress as a soothing cleansing breeze, instead of acupuncture with barbed wire :)

RE: In memory.....

sheepco,actually your thread has put tears in my eyes. My Corgi mix passed away last summer and it still makes me sad to think about him. He was such a good dog. He was my first dog I ever owned as an adult on my own. I loved him so much! PJ

RE: In memory.....

Aw, jeez...

So sorry, Sheepco. Rest his dear soul.

fondly,

RE: In memory.....

Please add my condolences .... take comfort in knowing he had a good life, protected and loved by you. It's hard to lose a family member, but worth the grieving in the end.

RE: In memory.....

I feel with you, too, Sarah. Gus looks like one fine puppydog. That's the ONLY downside to "geing owned by a dog" (I like the way you put it); they just don't live long enough.

You have your memories, and I know how precious those can be, as they are for me.

Take care,
Jeff

RE: In memory.....

Sunday my folks and I planted a weeping willow in his honor...never could pass up an excuse to plant another tree...so the cycle has come full circle. But I still miss the little bugger every day, and can't bring myself to take down the 'Corgi Crossing' sign from my driveway.

Thanks again for all your thoughts for me, it is really nice to know people care. I shouldn't be surprised, you pond and plant people have huge hearts!!!

RE: In memory.....

sara! you don't have to take down that corgi crossing sign. gus may not need it for protection anymore, but i'll bet it is fun to run circles around while chasing long lost sheep.

Awww, FTM, you took the words right out of my keyboard!

This winter, I'd love to see pics of your willow, Sarah (for the Winter Pics thread that'll be here). Even though it's probably small now, good things come in small packages. :)
