Claire was our 1st dog. I have always wanted a Corgi and for some reason I had never told my wife. After we moved into our 1st house I let it slip that I always wanted one. Not a week later Claire came into my wife’s work(she is a Veterinarian) needing a home. Some things are meant to be. It’s made with Mahogany and curly maple.

That beautiful box will truly honor her life and the obvious joy she brought into yours.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your Corgi. Their going leaves such a void in our lives. It looks like she is resting in a well made box.

I lost my 3rd Corgi in March (pict. in avatar) but luckily found a pup from a near by breeder within a week. Like your story it seemed meant to be. Knowing it could be hard to find another puppy right away I has searched 4 states for breeders with pups available and all said 6 months to a year with a $300 non refundable deposit. The last breeder I emailed, only 80 miles away, called me the next morning and said she had a male pup if I was interested. It turned out she had bred her male with her sister’s bitch (both are dog breeders, Corgis and shepherds). So that gave her pick of the litter. It appears that about the same time I emailed her she had decided she did not have the time to deal with a puppy so that is why he was for sale. He is now 10 months old. In my opinion smarter than average, like all Corgis affectionate but in his case independent and very self confident making him a challenge to train…..someone who hadn’t trained Corgis before could be in trouble with him. As I always say they are not dogs they are Corgis….there is a difference.

I hope you can find another Corgi soon. For my wife and I getting another puppy right away immeasurably helpd us through the grieving process. We are both around 80 so this will be our last Corgi.

It’s a beautiful box, and memoriam to your family member.

Condolences on your loss.

I love the outfit, she doesn’t look bothered by it in the least. All of my old hounds would have been scratching, and clawing in an attempt to get free.

Thanks for sharing. It’s the human stuff that makes this site exceptional.
