||Three years old|
||Cardigan Welsh Corgi|
||Cincinnati, Ohio, USA|
is a hard-working Therapy Dog at two local hospitals. Maggie is
one of the lights of my life. I searched for her for quite a while. I
knew that I wanted a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. I wanted a blue merle and I
preferred a female. Putting all of that together was difficult. I
didn't want to have to fly one in, as I really wanted to play with the
pup and see what she was like. I finally found a breeder close to me.
When the litter was born there were only three pups and they were all
destined for show homes. It was my good fortune that this little lady
turned out to have a fluffy coat which is a major disqualification in a
show ring - but she will always be my Best Of Show.
Maggie is a playful three-year-old who loves her rope and tugging with her
brother Charlie, a five-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She by turns
idolizes and terrorizes her sister Giggles, a seven-year-old Pembroke.
They are on the go a lot, racing around the house and yard. It is
never dull around here.
Maggie is busy, like all Corgis. She needed a job to do and since I
don't have any animals for her to herd besides the other dogs, I decided
to get her involved in therapy work. She was very good at standard
obedience and that helped her to gain her Therapy Dog title. As soon as
her magic cape goes on she knows that she is going to "work." She is a
little reserved with the folks that she meets in hallways and waiting
rooms but is highly intuitive and I like to say that she does her best
work in bed. She will just snuggle in with her patients and spend as
much time as they want and gives lots of healing Corgi kisses. She
works on the trauma floor and in the neurological ICU of a busy hospital.
