Corky and Simon have a lot to be thankful for this year!
Corky and Simon, two corgi-border collie mixes, lived in the country in Arkansas from the time they were puppies. Recently, at the age of about 6-7 years, the kids in the family no longer had time for the dogs and the owner was going to put them down. Fortunately a rescuer learned of this and managed to find a foster home for them before they could come to any harm.
But the rescuer in Arkansas wasn't really familiar with corgis and had no avenue by which to find homes with "corgi lovers" who would truly appreciate their sweet personalities and forgive the fact that they don't have a classic corgi look because they're mixes. She found the ForPaws Corgi Rescue website and asked us for help. We posted Corky and Simon to give them some publicity and their new owners saw the posting!
In order to save these dogs, Lori and Brian drove quite a distance to get them. They brought them home to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where life is substantially improved for these lucky pooches!
This link takes you to a recent newspaper article about Lori and Brian. It gives a bit of history about their former corgi and how they named one of their retail stores in his honor, Bungalow Bailey's.
Now Corky and Simon spend their days with their new family and are official doggie ambassadors, greeting patrons and sporting attractive new Bungalow Bailey's apparel! We are sure that the original Bailey would approve of the new canine additions and we can't thank Lori and Brian enough for going far more than the extra mile to provide a wonderful home for two dogs that were seriously in need!
It's a VERY happy Thanksgiving for Corky and Simon!
