|She is pure corgi and the same color as Ollie!|
That is the name of our newest family member -- a little girl corgi. We think she's about a year old and she has a sad tale.
For she was "dumped" at a gas station. The station worker saw a truck drive up, let her out and then drive off. She was at the station (and in the ravine) for a few days when a friend stopped at the station, saw the dog wanting to get in and said something to him.
"Naw, she ain't our dog" he said "she was dumped" and he her the story of the man and the truck.
Since the station was on 2 busy highways, my friend decided to rescue her for the next time she traveled that way she didn't want to see her squished on the highway.
Home she came.
And I received a call.
"You're the only person I can think of that has a corgi" she said. And she told me that since she already had three dogs she couldn't keep a fourth and would I be interested.
"I would" I told her but I also told her the most important part was Ollie. If he would accept her, then I would as well. For he is 14 and we're not sure how much time he has left and we didn't want his last days, weeks, months or even years to be stressful. He didn't deserve that.
I would come and meet her, I said, and if we got along, then I would bring her home and let Ollie decide.
He accepted her immediately (and he doesn't usually like strange animals) and although they don't lie in a pile, they do enjoy walks together and are even courteous at meal times.
I think she's around a year old, she has manners, she's housebroke and like Ollie, she doesn't get on the furniture or bed! They're "ground" dogs!
She'll be on my sidebar for she'll have as much to say as Ollie!
|She has that cute corgi face!|
Husband Jim named her Dolly and she'll come when called! So, say "Hello" to "Dolly" - the newest resident at Linderhof!
