We all watched the beautiful memorial service for Steve Irwin last night. Our hearts are broken. The animals have truly lost a friend. Our sincerest condolences to Terri, Bindi, Robert and his entire family and friends.

Greetings, Corgi friends! I just had to share this photo, taken this weekend, of my friend Diane Polito's Corgi, Janry's Calvin Klein, MX, MXJ, MJP, AJP, CGC, PHC, NAC-V, NJC-V; better known as "Calvin." Just look at those awards!
As Diane's "Novice A" dog, Calvin was halfway to his Agility Championship (MACH) before he became deathly ill in 2003 from Ehlrichia equi, a disease carried by ticks. He survived, and has been battling it for almost three years now. He can no longer use his hind end to walk but gets around very well in his special doggy cart. Check him out in his doggy cart on his home page http://www.njcorgis.com/Calvin.html Having dealt with this horrific disease with one of my own Corgis, I encourage you to learn all you can about it, diagnosing it, preventing it and treating it. Diane has links to some good info through Calvin's page.
