Between Leah H.’s two Pembrokes, Scotty is “definitely the boss – and a moody one at that. He only comes and says hello to you when he feels like it (probably only 40% of the time), whereas Alice (the Tri) is always waiting at the end of the hall for a pat and a tummy rub when I get home.”
“He was raised outside in a kennel and had never known the inside of a house. Now he’s an indoor dog and would rather be inside if we’re home.”
“It was quite strange getting a boy dog, because I always had girls growing up. Now I couldn’t do without him!”
“Scotty has the best smile known to anyone. It doesn’t matter what he does, that smile just makes you forget. At first he was really scared of men, which for my stepdad was a horrible thing, as he is one of those natural dog people to whom dogs naturally gravitate. Scotty still gets scared of loud noises and is wary if he sees you have something in your hand by your side, but he has become such a lovely and great dog.”
“He is the world’s most lovable (I am biased) and loyal dog. When I’m home by myself, he sits at my feet and guards both the back and front door.”
“Intially we got him to keep Nikki our Jack Russell company, but unfortunately we lost her to Cain Toad posioning. After that Scotty became lonely, as he had always been around other dogs.”
“After losing Nikky we looked around for dogs that needed a good home. While searching a breeder’s site in Australia, I found a six-month-old girl in Tasmania for sale. After long thoughts (about two minutes) we decided to apply for her and we got her.”

Scott and Alice, you ROCK!
Welcome to The Daily Corgi!
Oh what a great duo! Sweet, sweet faces, and I loved each and every photo! One just cannot imagine life without a corgi, once one has experienced living with a corgi!
Two baby dolls from Down Under ! Thanks so much for sharing !

We are so sorry to hear of your loss of Alice. As with any family who keeps the company of corgis over years, we too have had a sibling lose a playmate and I can tell you they will again frap and leap and chase. I know you can't imagine it now but that day will come. Best to your family and sweet rainbow bridge days to Alice.

I'm so sorry to hear about Alice's passing…may God be with you & your family especially now. My godparents had a 16-year-old Pem named Scotty, too but he went to the Rainbow Bridge last year after a hard-fought battle with cancer. I'm sure your Scotty misses Alice very much but take comfort in the fact that you all have one another. <3

Oh please accept my deepest regrets for your sudden sorrow. It's hard to see a long time companion cross the bridge, but when it's such a youngster, there are no words. Blessings on your house and all who dwell within, two and four legged. Namaste.
I am so so sorry to hear about Alice. I too have lost a dog(not a Corgi though)and I know how hard it is. Praying for all of you (including Scotty) at this difficult time.
My most heartfelt condolences over your loss of lovely Alice. My mother, who's name is also Alice, bought her first Corgi in 1964 and our family has never been "Corgiless" since. We could not live without our faithfull companions. I pray that your family, and Scotty, find strength during this difficult time. Somewhere, Alice will be waiting for you.

So sorry to hear of her passing. I lost my first Corgi and it was hard. Prayers to you all.
Zanna Russell says
My sincere condolences on Alice's passing. Though she'll be waiting for you at the Bridge, I know that is little consolation at the moment. I'll light a candle for her tonight.
Zanna and Miss Tegan Bunnybutt, the Pem.
Jon Gillette says
My condolences for you loss of Alice. What a wonderful life she had and what wonderful memories you can carry of her. My corgi sons and I will pray for your family.

Another beautiful soul gone way too soon. We love them like it's never going to hurt and then there are no words to express how much we miss them. May your Alice, my Emmet and all the other departed corgis rest in peace.
Our 10 1/2 year old Pembroke (Winston) developed a health problem and died within one month last August 12th, so we know exactly how heartbroken you are. I only wish there was something I could do or say to soothe your pain. Time will help. I'm so sorry for your loss. I love Corgis so much and know how much you love yours. Joyce
