Melody’s Dad says she’s “doing very well, with the exception of having to pee about every hour or two. That started the second day after she came home. I seem to remember a vet saying something about that, perhaps it’s a side effect. Her spunk and personality are almost back to normal, better than they’d been since before I took her in last week.”
We’re all behind you, Melody!

Bob and Laura of St. Louis, Missouri are pet parents to several Corgis, including Hunny, the rescued Pem who made her Daily Corgi debut back in February, and Charlie Cheeks, who made his splash here last year.
(Both are true happy ending stories!)
Their Melody is the “bossy, sassy, wonderful girl” who introduced them to the wonder of Corgis thirteen years ago. They haven’t looked back since.
Now almost blind with cataracts, Melody was still full of vigor and vitality until a few days ago, when her vet diagnosed her with lymphoma.
Although they are going ahead with chemotherapy, Laura and Bob are understandably heartbroken. This news comes close on the heels of the loss of a beloved family member, so it’s especially hard.
Please join me in expressing your support, love, prayer and positivity for Melody and her family: Laura, Bob, Hunny, Charlie Cheeks and Teddy Bear. Kindly leave your comments here or on the facebook page.
Thank you for being here … your presence and participation in this community are valuable and appreciated!

My thoughts and prayers to sweet Melody and her family.
Dear folks, my heart goes out to you, truly. It hurts so very, very much. Especially our first corgi, who in my case, and yours opened our hearts to other loved corgis….All the peace in the world to you as you go through this with the lovely, dear Melody.

To a fellow Corgi family,
I know a bit about what you are going through. My Chester was 13 when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He had suffered with diabetes for two years and degenerative myelopathy. Chester was my "soul mate", he chose me to be his owner. He was with me through my mother's death, my divorce and every other tragedy, big or small, in my life.
I can hope you find comfort in knowing that many many of your unknown Corgi friends are praying for you and thinking of you and Melody at this difficult time.
And if one day, Melody does cross that bridge, my Chester will be there to make sure she is taken care of.
My heart goes out to your whole family. My 9 year old pem, Dizzy, was diagnosed with lymphoma a little over a year ago. We did chemotherapy and now a year later, the lymphoma is back and he can no longer be treated. He is also anemic now. We plan on spoiling him until we have to let him go. He has been my best friend for over 9 years and has seen me through some of the lowest and the highest points in my life.
All you can do is love them unconditionally every minute of every day. God will take care of the rest. Cherish every moment.

We love you & your family Melody! <3, Brody Corgi & his mom
I wish the best possible outcome for your little Melody. I had to take my little guy to the vet today for something simple, but I know how much it hurts me to see him in any kind of pain at all, so I can only imagine what you and your family are going through. For me, my little Corgi is the best thing that ever happened to me. A big hug to Melody.
Poor Melody! And her poor Mom & Dad. I've had a couple doggies with lymphoma over the years, and it's not an easy thing to get through. My heart goes out to you all, and my prayers & positive thoughts. Love & hugs to each of you.

I will keep all of you in my prayers. My Rosie is 13 and a half and I know that her day is coming…one day. It will be terribly hard but I know she has had a good life and been loved each and every day. Just like Melody and that makes a difference!
