Pewter was one of those special dogs. In 2003, I helped place Pewter in her forever retirement home. Her owners, Danielle and Rich had not had a dog before, and they were interested in another Corgi I was fostering at the time, a very boisterous and active boy. That dog was placed in a corgi-experienced home, and then from time to time, Danielle would pop up at our adoption events, or send an email, just to stay in touch. When Pewter came along in 2003, I wondered if Danielle and Rich might be interested. I started off the conversation with, "OK, I know she's a little older, but really, you have to believe me that Cardigans are a long-lived breed."
Danielle and Rich took the chance on Pewter, and she moved in and took over the house
Just a quick note to wish you a Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and 2005 is a great year for you and Sweet Pea Foundation! We're doing very well- Big Sister Pewter is her wonderful, yet Bossy, self. She's learned that in a house with a baby- you need to be heard if you want attention. (or at least that's what she thinks... so we hear A LOT more of her lately). She's got us on a rigid schedule, but is still sweet as ever. Happy Holidays to you! Danielle, Rich, Andi and Pewter
Thank you Danielle, Rich, and Andi for loving Pewter, and for giving her such a lovely place to call home for the rest of her happy, bossy days...
