Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

The New Kid...

On Saturday, April 21st, we met up with Monica (better known as Classy Chassy) in Kalamazoo for a meet and greet at a Cracker Barrel with her and her little dog too. Dixie Doodles needed a new home. We needed a new corgi. We lost of beloved Jake one week shy of his twelth birthday the end of March. We had a hole to fill, and Monica needed to find a home for a corgi. Dixie is well trained and was much loved by Monica. It wasn't easy for her to part with her. Sometimes though, L-I-F-E gets in the way and changes have to be made. Because Dixie was much loved, Monica made the tough decision to let her go because she knew that Dixie wasn't getting the life she needed at the time. She offered, and by golly we jumped to get the little girl in Michigan. Now, nearly a month later I'm so glad that we did. Dixie is such a little sweetie. She'll be six on Father's Day, but she seems like a pup. She's bouncy, kooky, silly and extremely lovable. Addie seemed to accept her right away. Addie is stiff and old and grouchy, but seems perkier, and is wrestling again with the new kid inhouse. She needs a buddy, and now that she is with Dixie, I realize just how much she must miss Jake. Thank you Monica for sharing your heart and little princess with us. We'll love her and treat her right. She's filled our house with pep and love again. The little dickens.

Congratulations on your new corgi kid! I hope she brings as much joy into your life as Jake did. It sounds like she's already bringing good things by pepping up Addie. I'm happy for everyone concerned!

Hey Corgidogmama!

I am so thrilled that everything has worked out so great for you and Monica and Dixie! It sounds like even Addie is enjoying her being there too. That is so wonderful! I'm so glad to hear that everything worked out for everyone.

Susan, it was so WONDERFUL to meet you "way back when" in BLOGLAND - and much more wonderful in person not that long ago! You and Jim seem the perfect pair and I am so glad you love Miss Doodles as we love her - she will always be in our hearts and I'm glad we made you the "offer you could not refuse..." Keep me up on news of her - we miss her but have joy that she is with YOU! **hugs**

I am so happy for you, Jim, and Addie. The addition of Dixie has so changed the perspective for you all. You could have settled in to mourn Jake and missed an opportunity for Miss Dixie. I so want to meet her.

Oh, lucky you guys and lucky Dixie! She looks like a great addition and Addie has a buddy again. There's nothing like "new blood" to rev things up! Keep us posted on their adventures and have a good week, lady!

I, too, was so happy for this win-win situation. It is great to see both of my friends find a happy solution for a much loved little corgi! :)

Hi there,

I recognize this face! Dixie was a Dog of the Day on The Daily Corgi once:

She's lucky to have landed herself another great home.

Corgi On!
