One of the year’s most touching posts — Gizmo and Millie: A Rescue Love Story — ran on the 11th. If you missed that one, have a look back and read it. You’ll be glad you did.
Corgi luminary Pudge der Poopster was appointed honorary SpokesCorgi for The Third Annual Daily Corgi Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest. No doubt that face and major foof-age helped spread the word. Thanks again, Pudge! You’re the best!
By NOVEMBER 2nd, giving for Baxter Valentine’s fund had reached a whopping $6,200. The update on his treatment was mixed, but his Mom remained hopeful and kept his doctors busy.
On the 7th, the results of voting in the Costume Contest were announced. Mulder the Spider took top spot, followed by Oliver the Firetruck, and Jeter as Harry Potter and Cappy as Luna Lovegood. The so-charming-he’s-disarming Benny Corgipants took the Editor’s Choice prize … there was no resisting him as The Ladies’ Man!
Midway through the month, Elizabeth T. of The Chronicles of Cardigan was interviewed for The Daily Corgi’s first-ever “Blue Ribbon Blogger” feature. I consider that one a coup, as Chronicles is one of my top favorite Corgi blogs. It’s well written and regularly hilarious!
My reach into the Corgi World expanded by 10,000 (give or take) in November, with the acquisition of rights to the facebook Welsh Corgi page. The page was simply given to me by the person who previously owned it. Talk about an early Christmas gift, Sari Kallio!
By the 17th, Baxter Valentine’s fund had reached it’s $8,000 goal. Not long afterwards, however, our hero and fighter Baxter was gone.
In his wake, Baxter left a legacy of love for the many, many people who adored and rooted for him. Pure love, and inspiration enough to set his Mom Anitra on her way from Minnesota to Missouri within a week to bring back dozens of dogs in need of foster — then forever — homes. She dubbed the mission Baxter’s Rescue Brigade, and in no time at all, Corgi Nation chipped in hundreds of dollars to cover the costs of vehicle rentals and gas.
A look back at Phil’s life rounded out the month of November, with his Mom’s fond reminiscences of the many ways he filled up her life and Corgi-fied the neighborhood with his winning ways.
