The power of dogs
It is amazing the way dogs change our lives. Yesterday was a very sad day, as not one but two beautiful Corgi girls left this earth for the Rainbow Bridge. Both of them gave me a very important gift which I will be forever grateful.
The beautiful Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Phoebe, ABISS, Multiple ABIMBS, Multiple ARBIMBS, ALCH, Multiple Champion Tri-umph Tender Promise, CD, RE, THD, CRC, TDIA, TT was the first “show dog” for my best friend Leslie Reed. Without Phoe, (and her housemate Pennie) Leslie may have never shown up at a kennel club meeting and our paths may have never crossed. My life would be much different without Leslie and Bob and I am so thankful that Phoebe was part of what brought us together.
The second great lady to leave us is Spirit, Ch. Myrddin Scotch Mist. Spirit is PJ’s momma. I fell in love with her when I saw her at the Nationals and she just filled my eye. I kept an eye on her career and sent her owner Marian Mizelle, congratulatory notes when she took a nice group placements. I wanted part of Spirit. I was thrilled when Marian agreed to sell PJ to Kathy Davis and myself, a co-ownership that sealed Kathy and my friendship and brought my beautiful boy home.
My heart hurts for Leslie and Bob and for Marian on their losses. But it is with great thanks that these two lovely girls left a legacy in my life.
Rest well dear ones and thank you.
