1/25/2012: Update on Magic’s condition HERE!
Magic is a very cool dog.
Not only is he a Corgi (special enough!), he’s also a service dog extraordinaire who goes everywhere with his Mom Amy, helping her with seizures and mobility issues. (The adoring public and extra belly rubs part is pretty sweet too). As for Amy, well … there’s no two ways about it: she’s a Corgi person extraordinaire!
Those of us who frequent Corgi Nation on facebook know Amy’s dedication to helping Corgis. She’s tireless, all heart and all in. Her diligence has earned my affectionate respect. Which is why I’m pleased to step up on her behalf — and Magic’s.
Back in December, this bundle of energy injured his back. In spite of rest and confinement to a couple of rooms in the house, Magic still doesn’t know where his rear feet are and is weak in his back end. Amy has agonized over it, as any of us would. He’s far more than a service dog, he’s her heart dog.
Magic’s doctors say surgery would help him. That he could regain function and be back to his visits on the beach, flights to see Amy’s parents, playing with his Corgi “brother”… back to living out LOUD, the way Corgis were meant to!
Here’s the good news: together we can make that happen.
CorgiPals has set up a Helping Paws Campaign for Amy and Magic, so he can have his surgery on Thursday the 19th. That’s less than a week away. Enough time for Corgi Nation make things right again for these heroes, to give them the kind of hope they create for others all the time.
