Five year-old Charlotte and nine year-old Farley live in Troy, New York with Greg L. and his family. According to Greg “they read The Daily Corgi every day to see what their friends are doing.”
“We were out walking one morning when the unleashed Chow flew from his backyard on the other side of the street and attacked Farley, biting him so hard that our boy required tubes and stitches to close the wounds on his back. In his struggle to flee from the Chow, Farley tore the ligament in his right knee. He had surgery to replace the ligament in April of 2008 and healed up very well, but the strain of the injury caused the other ligament to tear as well and he had to have a second operation in October of 2008. The doctors at Mount Anthony Animal Hospital in Bennington, Vermont did a great job on both of Farley’s operations. Today he has “bionic legs” and is back to playing fetch, although we don’t do the flying buddy anymore.”
“We gave the breeder our address and explained that we were only seven miles away from the Albany Airport. The breeder sent Charlotte to LaGuardia Airport in NYC. By the time we got the flight number from the breeder and we realized that she was going to NYC it was too late to make any change or to catch another flight to Albany, so we hopped in the car and drove to LaGuardia on a Saturday afternoon. It just so happened that the New York Mets had a home baseball game right across the street and it got over just as we were getting to the airport. Traffic around the baseball stadium was a nightmare, but we got to Charlotte just after the plane landed and took her home to meet Farley.”
What a great post on two neat Corgis! I laughed so hard to think of a Corgi sliding on its back down a hill.
