In the three and-a-half years I’ve been blogging about Corgis, I’ve rarely seen one with the kind of cuddlebug streak Angel has.
Although she can frap with the best of them (no photographic evidence but I’ll buy that), her favorite activity — bar none — is cuddling.
Cuddling is her primary vocation. In her spare time, she does a bit of snuggling. For variety, of course.
Proud Mom Elissa P. says Angel is “the total antithesis of a Corgi, which is really strange. She’s a
full breed Corgi, but she is the most tame and laid back girl I’ve ever seen.”
“In some ways, Angel is “Corgi gone wrong”. Ears like satellite dishes,
mismatched paws, a long soft slow-motion tongue, and the cutest nub of a
tail. If you catch her just right, depending on her mood, she’ll stick
the nubbie out and wag it! We didn’t realize she had a voice for
the first month she was living with us, until one day we heard “HEFFFF!” We have resigned ourselves to the fact that Angel
doesn’t bark. She “hefs”. It’s all good though.”
“In her travels throughout my home, she somehow decided to commandeer our bed. In her brilliant Corgi mind, Angel decided a Tempur-Pedic
mattress is just right for her cute little Corgi body.”
Angel’s predecessor Gigi, the family’s precious thirteen year-old Corgi, disappeared at Christmastime last year and was found four long days later, having met her fate with a coyote in the woods. “We were heartbroken” Elissa recalls. “I didn’t stop crying for a whole week.”
” At my lowest point, I was contacted by a friend who said if we were ready, he knew
someone who had a female Corgi in need of a home. When I called this kind person, it was like we had known one
other forever. After a few days’ communication, we made arrangements to meet and pick up our new Corgi.”
“This wonderful spirit refused any payment. All she wanted for this dog was a good home, and she knew we could give her that. Miss Angel came
to live with us on January 7th, 2012.”
“In the end, we are so glad we made the decision NOT to wait
before bringing another Corgi into the house. I am smitten with Angel, and thrilled to have her as part of our family.”
our guardian angel!”
Sounds about right to me. Sometimes guardian angels need a little rescuing too …

Angel is very cute. Love the snuggle with the cat pic. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
Red headed Pembrokes are the greatest ! We had to part with our beloved Winston on August 12th of this year. Just four days ago we brought our new little red and white boy home. His name is Wilson and we too are glad we didn't wait to bring a new Corgi into our family.

Awwwwhh! We wish that LMPP was a tad bit snugglier. Corgi fur and ears are sooo soft. Thank goodness that the rescue Border Collie, and my big white dog; (my companion of 15 years) fill the void of cuddles. Soccer ball, toys, treats, ducks, geese, seem to hijack her little brain at frequent intervals. And she has the Corgi propensity to sleep in strange places and awkward positions. Angel must've so so comforting. Corgi cute, healer of sad loss, bringing out the best in her entire worls… Her family has great, good, fortune. Happy times.

Laurie–thank you for getting Miss Angel's story out there. Love seeing her up on the blog. She's a great companion and we couldn't imagine NOT having her as part of our family! This Corgi healed a big hole in our family's heart. Wanted to share how much a dog can help heal!
Angel for sure. She knows how to close those eyes part way to let us all know that she is in a near state of perfection.

This story brought a tear to my eye…we lost our 15 yr old about a month ago. We too are ready to open our hearts to a new playmate for our Rosie. It's hard to find an available corgi out there but I know our Angel is out there somewhere♥
