As she grew, Melody taught us more and more about what a Corgi was all about and we became ever more amazed (and hopelessly in love with her) and Corgis in general. Our little pack grew to four. Of course, they all wanted to be the boss, but there was never any doubt who was in charge.
Two weeks ago she completed her therapy and we left the hospital to a chorus of “We’ll miss you!” She had done so well in her treatments that her doctor felt Melody’s prognosis was excellent and life expectancy open-ended. We were so proud. Four days later, she suddenly began breathing fast and shallow. We returned to the hospital at 2 a.m., where she was diagnosed with pneumonia. For the next four days her doctors tried everything. Her Mommy Laura and I thought of nothing but our little girl every moment, visiting her and waiting by the phone for some encouraging word. Last Tuesday she took a turn for the worst and we couldn’t bear to see her struggle any longer. With our arms wrapped around her and hearts bursting with love and grief, we said goodbye to our precious angel.
Forever grateful for fourteen and-a-half wonderful years, we will think of her every day and feel her love always. God bless our darling girl, our Melody.”
