“It’s hot in North Texas (remember last year?) and extremes of temperature are very hard on DM dogs. She is rapidly losing the use of her front legs — her back legs are long gone — and her bark is already getting weaker. We don’t know how much longer we’ll have our Gillie, but we do know how to make her happy every day of the rest of her life.”
“To the dogs and people of Corgis on Wheels and DMDogs Yahoo groups, and especially to Bobbie Mayer who knows all and shares all, thanks for your love and good advice!”
“To the breeders making sure none of their dogs will ever again suffer this disease, and to Laurie here at The Daily Corgi for helping get the word out, God bless you!”
“To Dr. Julie Stanek and her team at Centerville Road Animal Clinic, Dr. Ave and Miss Karen, Jennie and Chantel of North Texas Animal Rehabilitation, and to Auntie Pat for all your help, thank you for Gillie’s last year. Without you we would not have had it.”
Kathy Hays says

Peggy Gilliesmom says
She's my precious treasure and the best dog I've ever had. When she came to me she was shut down but now she smiles (and bosses) every day. It's easy to love Gillie!
Thank you all for your kind words!

Thank you for giving this dog such a wonderful life, Peggy. I absolutely adore the picture of her in the basket, how precious!
I hope those doggie latte from Starbucks do not contain any coffee or chocolate! Both can give dogs heart attacks. FYI
