“He was fifty pounds (but not overweight)! He was just a massive dinosaur of the breed. We adopted Rocky Dog ten years ago when he was three from a large family who couldn’t afford the time or money to take care of him.”
Nancy G. of Shawnee, Kansas wrote to The Daily Corgi about two very special Pembrokes: Rocky Dog, who lived to senior age, and three year-old Harley, who’s been delighting his new family for several months.
“Rocky Dog (the big fawn colored fatty) was the “runt of his litter” because he wasn’t show quality.”
“When he was young his favorite activity was herding a basketball around the yard. He was always just a big sweetheart. When I transferred back to my home state my freshman year of college, my parents came to pick me up and Rocky spent the two day drive sitting in my lap.”
“Rocky Dog was my Dad’s loyal companion, but we all loved him.”
“In early January of 2010, all of his many health problems caught up with Rocky and we had to put our beloved boy to sleep. Rocky Dog left a massive Corgi size hole in our lives and we just had to rescue another one.”
“After Rocky’s passing, we looked for another Corgi and found Harley. Harley Boy was rescued from a high kill shelter and was living with his foster Mom.”
“He’s been with us a few months and helping us forget to be sad. Harley is three and full of the Corgi spirit and energy that we love. He has that one floppy ear from an old injury, and with those puppy dog eyes you can see he’s got a lot of character.”
“Harley is the sweetest dog. He loves to cuddle and when he’s especially happy, run figure eights around the house! We’re going to teach him to herd, because he’s quick and too smart for his own good! His favorite thing is watching out our front window.”
“Harley’s reminded us when we’re sad that life goes on, and sometimes you just need a run around the neighborhood!”
“No worries, I got it covered!”
