    Default Thought I would put some pictures up of my Corgi

    This is Barney in Nov last year he was at Dubbo pound waiting to be put down for being fat and old. i rang them and argued and then ended up with him! He was close to 20kg, matted coat, and was told he was over 14yrs old... he is closer to 7 and now down to 13kg We also shaved him as he was so badly matted and suffered from heat stroke. One pictures is of him the pound sent me. The one on his back was when I first got him, he was so FAT if he got on his back he got cast and could not get back over! Had to design him a harness like a casting roller for horses so he did not get stuck while I was at work!

    Lovely boy. Good on you for giving him a second chance in a great home where he's obviously loved.
    If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. ~Phil Pastoret

    What a lucky dog, he is lovely! Thanks for helping him out. People who dump dogs in pounds because they are too old, fat or whatever are scum. Older dogs need to be treasured and nurtured for all the years of joy and loyalty they have given, not cast off like some old shoe. Grrrr.

    Thanks guys, I was really peeved he ended up there but then found out his back story. he was owned by an older couple, wife was in palliative care at home husband looking after her. Husband had a heart attack and for two days lay on the kitchen floor before anyone found him. With no children the wife was sent into care and dog to pound. As the wife was not all there no info on Barney outside is name was given to the pound. I reached out on facebook asking if anyone knew him and the nurse caring for the wife contacted me, all she did was ask if Barney had been feed and had one picture of Barney and her husband. Could not remember her husband but would talk about Barney and how they got him as a puppy and asking where he was. I even sent pictures up to her before she died of him running around the farm and a video to the nurse to show her, she was very worried he was sooo thin LOL. Now I totally understand why when anyone lies on the floor Barney looses it! Sort of a joke when the kids are up and in front of the fire I always hear "I am not dead Barney!" LOL My father was filling the wood box and on his knees and Barney was really really upset!

    Poor little guy, that is such a sad story. Reminds to make sure that my will details and my reletives understand clearly what I want done with my dogs if something terrible happens to me. I have made up a contact list of breeders and rescues where each dog came from, it is always a worry but I do have some very caring breeders and contacts for my dogs.
