Our Very Special Louisa and Natalie!

We would like to tell you a very special story about a little Corgi that was rescued last September from a high kill animal shelter in Georgia. Louisa (we called her Hope) was suffering from a debilitating disease, which had left her unable to walk. Her prognosis was not good. The vet who examined her at the shelter thought that she was in pain and that her condition was incurable. He seemed to think that euthanasia was about the only option left for this little girl. But, thankfully, some friends refused to accept the fact that Louisa needed to be put down and contacted Walton Salley. Walton, softie that she is, became Louisa's champion and refused to accept the initial prognosis on face value. Instead, Walton asked Tom and his three dogs to foster Louisa until we could help find her a forever home.

Walton spared no time or expense in finding out exactly what Louisa's medical condition was and if it could be stabilized. Louisa was examined by two excellent veterinarians here in Charleston and, also, a vet specialist and the news they gave us was very encouraging. It seems that Louisa's disability was not progressive and that she was in no pain. Well, that certainly settled any question of euthanasia. Now all we had to do was find her a good home.

A few people did express interest in her, but decided that she would be too difficult for them. To be perfectly honest, Tom had pretty much come to the conclusion that Louisa would be would be staying with him for as long as she lived. Tom knew in his heart that this sweet little girl was worth the effort and that she would make someone a wonderful pet and companion.

Well, all of this took a turn for the better in early March. Walton was contacted by a family in Bluffton, SC, and they wanted to give Louisa a chance. They agreed to take her on a trial basis and see how things would go. So, off she went to stay with Natalie and her family in Bluffton. Walton and Tom received progress reports every few days. It was going to take an especially caring and loving family to be able to look beyond Louisa's disability and see what a wonderful little dog she was, and Tom could sense that this family was all that. After a couple of weeks, Natalie told us that they had decided to keep Louisa and give her the forever home that she so badly needed.

A lot of wonderful people went the extra mile to save a very special little dog.
They opened their hearts, took action and made this a Happy Ending!

My Dogs Live Here

My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
they will alert you're at the door.
they may request a little pat,
a simple "no" will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say
"just how is it you live this way?
they smell, they shed, they're in the way.."
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say..

They love me more than anyone,
my voice is like the rising sun,
they merely have to hear me say
"C'mon girls, time to go and play"

then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say "no time for you",
they're always there, to GO and DO.

and if I'm sad? They're by my side
and if I'm mad? they circle wide
and if I laugh, they laugh with me
they understand, they always see.

so once again, I say to you
come visit me, but know this too..
My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place...
