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

  • 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..." _Hermann Hesse

Saying Goodbye to Glendi (Sophie)

Now that ForPaws Corgi Rescue has been in existence for almost 15 years, some of the dogs that we placed in the early years are making their way across the Rainbow Bridge (sniff).

Last week I received a message from Pamela, a lovely woman who adopted “Glendi” (renamed Sophie) in 2000. This sweet dog had not had the greatest life until she found Pamela. For the next eleven years they would travel together – steadfast companions throughout the changing chapters of life. They found one another at a time when it was meant to be, but on June 6, 2011 it was time to say goodbye. Pam writes:

Good Morning ForPaws,

I wondered how I could memorialize Glendi? We adopted her from you in 2000. We called her Sophie. She brought 11 years of joy to our family. We send her off to doggy heaven on June 6, 2011 due to cancer. Our hearts are heavy, she has left a large hole and we miss her terribly. Please tell me how to post a memorial.

Thank you so much.


Sweet Sophie – travel safely over the Rainbow Bridge. Go with dignity and grace. We will never forget the many gifts you brought into the lives of those who loved you and you will live forever in our hearts!
