It’s not stubbornness, it’s Corgi stick-to-it-iveness.
“Although I have had dogs since I was seven years old, I have never had another dog anything like Dylan. He’s been with me from the time he was a puppy.” Dylan inducted his lucky Mom into “to the weird and wonderful world of Corgi life.”
“Five years ago Dylan ruptured two disks in his back and suffered back end paralysis. Post-surgery, he made very slow progress and seemed very depressed. Luckily we discovered K9H2O therapy swimming pool for dogs. Thanks to very good friends at K9H2O, he’s walking again and keeping his yard safe for Corgi kind. Miraculously, today Dylan runs and plays and keeps the yard free of squirrels. He adores his weekly swim more than any other activity. He love, love, loves to swim!”
“Dylan’s favorite toy is Karate Dog, which screams “Hiiii-yahh!” He thoroughly enjoys his squeakies, the louder and more obnoxious the better. Each night he goes through his toybox and picks one particular item to play with, happy to taunt the humans with his superior skills.”
(Ed. note: I firmly believe love of squeaky objects is part of the Corgi genetic code, as is the prey drive behind squeak-ectomies).
You are just about as Corgi as it gets.
:'3 Such an inspiring story. We lost Hedgerow, our Pembroke Welsh Corgi, to the same condition (two ruptured discs) last August at the age of 15, and it's wonderful to see success stories like this one.
What a wonderful story about a fantastic corgi kid. Ours are ten and eight. Their muzzles are getting white, and they lick their paws more. But toys, treats, a field of sheep and yep, any ol' squeaky toy or car ride perks them right up again. Lordy, corgis are such wonderful animals~
Dylan sounds pretty darned corgi-ific! 🙂
