Tracing our roots….

Our very good friend Chris found some really cool Corgi books that she didn’t need anymore and gave them to us! One was a WHOLE book of Corgis in Australia in 2002. But wait! It also has New Zealand Corgis and we have some family ties to New Zealand. Imagine our excitement when we found the pages of the kennel where our ancestors came from – Stormwey. So just to have a little fun, we thought we’d show everyone how we are related to at least 3 of the Stormwey Corgis in our new book!! We also found out Megwyn can trace her ancestors all the way back to 2002! Follow the lines – green is Mic, blue is Moli and purple is Megwyn! Totally cool stuff. (the female biped is a geek)

First, Mic!

Now Moli

And last but not least, here is Mic and Meg’s connection!

Mic’s very good Sunday….

When we first knew without question that Mic had dementia and was getting old, we thought we would only have a few months more with him. Thanks to great care by ALL his vets, we have had almost 2 more happy and mostly healthy years than we thought we would. In the last few months his step has gotten a little slower but his smile remained. In this last week, however, his smile has faltered. Not gone entirely, but not as ready as usual. This last week he has started to stumble, has difficulty standing and has been having pain. We upped the pain meds and that has helped. But in the last 24 hours he has started to have some blood in his stool, obvious pain in spite of meds, diminished interest in food and difficulty eating. We have tried more interventions to make him comfortable and they are helping but his smile is not there. So with heaviest hearts we have decided to send him home to God tomorrow. Maybe Maddie will be nicer to him on the other side of the rainbow bridge. I know his brother, Mick, will be watching for him. He has been the sweetest, most gentle boy ever. Mike, Moli and I will be with him to send him on his next big adventure. He never was one to want to be too much on his own – as evidenced by the fact that when he escaped the yard, he only went next door. But with Maddie and Mick to greet him, I think he will be OK. Thank you all for sharing his journey with us. We had a great last adventure together on Sunday… xoxo

Happy belated bday Mic!!

Aarghgh!!! I didn’t post this on the 16th!!  Our Mic turned 13 on the 16th!  Happy Birthday sweet troll. Sadly, his brother Mick has already gone to the Rainbow Bridge. The pics of the brothers are from September 2014 when they had a little reunion – after 11 years.  Sweet sweet corgi boys.  Shout out to Mama Jill and Aunt Kim. Luvs!
