“Every time I lose a dog, they take apiece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.” — Anonymous
Here is Evie’s story, in the words of Amy B.:
“I first met Evie’s mama at a local environmental fair. At that time (April 2010), her pups — including Evie — were just a few weeks old and resting comfortably at home.”
“A few weeks later, I saw Evie’s picture on Facebook.”
“There she was, a spunky little pup chewing on her littermate’s face. I fell in love and knew then that I was ready to experience the beautiful gift of another Corgi, following the unexpected and devastating loss of my rescued Corgi mix.”
“Evie came to me as a birthday gift from my Mom and Dad.”
“Because my Russian Blueboy is named Cash, for Johnny Cash, I tried to name my new puppy June. As a Welsh girl, however, she wasn’t having any of it.”
“After trying several alternatives, she decided she liked Evie, short for the good Gaelic name Eibhlin.”
Evie and her “fat man” Cash … two peas in a furry pod!
“Every morning during the week, the minute Evie sees me put on my shoes before leaving for work, she hops off the couch and gets in her crate with her toys and waits for me to close the crate door.”
“After she’s had a good nap, she joins her Grandpa and her Papillon buddies. Evie gets to run through agility training and is honing her herding skills telling those little dogs what to do.”
“They play all afternoon until Mom and Dad return from work.”
“Morning, noon and night, Evie’s favorite thing is food. Though she doesn’t get much people food – only during road trips back home from long mountain hikes or for her first birthday – she’s always interested in what we’re eating.”
“She’s polite and patient – most of the time.”
“Evie barks at EVERYTHING. She announces her presence every time she goes out in the backyard, she barks at all birds but doesn’t chase (it’s her “I want to play bark”), and she barks if I say the words “Monsieur” or “L’étranger” (French for the stranger), my names for the sweet black outdoor kitty that used to come over to play with Evie when she was tinier and less loud. Evie has a has a lot to say.”
“Her favorite Summer activities include lying in the hammock with her people and chasing the ball. In the Winter, she’s all about lounging in front of the fire or cuddling up next to us.”
“In addition to being adored, Evie loves to play with toys. All toys or things that look like toys belonging to Queen E. She enjoys playing tag with her Russian Blue “fat man”, going for walks on the Greenway, and playing “attack the human feet” under the covers.”
“Evie won the best stubby contest in the 2010 annual Run with Big Dogs, charity run/walk for the local animal shelter. This year, the local paper featured her in its slideshow from the event.”
Yep, it’s the good life for Evie in Pocatello, Idaho … a good life indeed!
