Good morning everyone, and welcome to my weekly guest spot on The Daily Corgi! I am your host Paige K. Davis, founder of CorgiPals. As you know, every week I’ll be doing a guest post to keep you up to snuff with the goings-on in the CorgiPals world. This week’s theme: Boys and Girls!
First up… the boy! I’d like to introduce you to one of our two newest Helping Paws clients. Ricky Bobby is an extremely handsome Cardigan Corgi boy who was adopted by his new family from their local humane society back in 2009. He had been abandoned by his previous owner and left chained to a pole to fend for himself. He is now approximately 4 years old. His Corgi Mom Donna recently found a tumor on his tummy and needs help with the cost to get it removed. The total cost is $372 and Ricky Bobby now needs only $162 to reach his goal.
And now to meet the girl, and our second newest Helping Paws client. Ed is a 2 year old Corgi girl that has suffered from bladder infections for her entire life. Cowboy Bebop fans will recognize the reason for a girl having the name Ed. In this popular anime (Japanese cartoon) Edward’s sidekick is none other than the famous animated Corgi Ein! Ed recently had an ultrasound to find the cause, and a polyp was discovered. During surgery, Ed took a turn for the worse. While doing the surgery, her bladder ruptured. She was in critical condition, but they managed to stabilize her. Her bladder wall is very weak and thin and they had to re-build the uterine tissue in order to get the bladder closed off. She is still at the hospital. The total cost to help Ed will be above our cap of $5,000. She now needs $4,415 to reach that goal.
REMINDER: our next auction, Spring Cleaning for Corgis, will take place from Saturday, March 16 through Saturday, March 30! The auction will, as always, take place on our Facebook page. If you have items you’d like to donate, please send a description, quantity, suggested starting bid, and picture to Paige at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That about wraps it up for this week. As always, please spread the word about our Corgis in need and keep on Corgi’n on!
Oh, and don’t forget… CorgiPals has a company goal that we are trying to reach. We are trying to get our Facebook page to 5,000 “likes” by the end of 2013. We are currently at 4,377 fans! Please spread the word to help us reach our goal! Remember, every person who knows about CorgiPals is one more soldier in our army fighting for Corgis in need all over the globe!
