Like all Corgis, Jasmine is pretty much a wonder dog.
“She was our baby before we had babies” writes Corgi Mom Melanie D.
“In her younger days, Jazzy had tons and tons of energy and would play Kong for hours on end. She and her “brother” Bingley loved to chase each other around the yard.”
Corgis on patrol: supervising the inside from the outside.
“She’s never been a dog to chase and bring something back, preferring instead to carry a secondary toy and shake it as hard as she can while she runs in the direction of whatever was thrown. Our girl has trained us to retrieve what we threw and throw it again to her.”
“Bingley went to the bridge two years ago, at fourteen. Jasmine is sixteen and-a-half now!”
“She started slowing down around ten, not playing as much and sleeping more. At 14 she really started slowing down. Now she sleeps at least 20 hours a day.”
“She has some arthritis in her back hips and needs a helping boost to stand up. When she’s awake, Jazzy still interacts with us and will even “run” (OK, more of a trot!) to her food. Jasmine is a great, great dog.”
“After Bingley passed, I said I’d never go through that again. Looking at all those sweet Corgi faces though, I know the sadness we feel is worth the 14 and 16 years of laughs and love we’ve had with our Bing and Jas. I can’t wait to get another Corgi in this house!”

Seeing Jasmine @ 16 does my heart good! My Taffy is 11! Still sharp! Still will play "tennis ball" on occasion! I have had 2 Corgis cross the bridge…also have Bear, a sorta rescue Corgi-owner was deployed. He is 7. Can't imagine my life WITHOUT a Corgi!
She is beautiful for 16. My baby is still young, but hearing your story about your corgi's gives me hope he will live a very long time. Thank you for sharing both Bingley and Jasmine.
