It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

ForPaws Helps Corgis and Corgi Mixes

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Never Work Alone - When Corgis are in Residence!

A Sunday Project - Building a Ramp for our Senior Dog, Bart

Bart is 16 years old. He's our senior Cardi/Aussie mix who is now having a bit of trouble negotiating stairs.  Nevertheless, he's still the canine pack leader and does a good job watching over his two "girls," not to mention the humans in the household. 

Bart is our "first dog." Joining us in 1997 as a rescue, many thought that 5-year-old Bart was "too old" to adopt at that time - ha! Guess he showed them by living to a ripe old age, as many corgis are these days! 

By showing us just what a wonderful companion a rescue dog can be, Bart inspired the formation of ForPaws Corgi Rescue. He has literally saved "hundreds" of lives!

Here's Moe, building a porch ramp for Bart, to span the steps. Working in peaceful solitude...but oops...those are Cardigan Ears. Nothing gets past Denali!

Corgis are nothing if not curious!

Every construction project needs a supervisor...or at least an audience.

Now that sister, Elbee, is finished touring the backyard, she's here to perform the foreman duties. OK, that's close enough to that saw young lady. (See small dog get whisked into house!)

OH that is too cute! Elbee looks like a little charmer! And even though I'm a Pem owner, I've fallen in love with those Cardi ears!!!

Hey Bart, you look pretty good to me. I love the old dogs. I also think it is so cool that an owner goes the extra mile for them: IE: builds a ramp. Way to go MOE and Denali.
