I rescued to 2 humans & they rescued me. Mum & Da were lonely for a Corgi pup after their Angel Rascal went to the Rainbow Bridge. So Mum went looking on the internet for a new Corgi pup. She found me listed on Petfinder @ the P.A.W.S Animal Shelter @ Kansas City, Missouri.
It was love @ 1st site. I was listed as just the right pup they were looking to find. They had to drive 5 hours away to come rescue me @ the shelter.
Mum & Da did not like the name I had so re-named me Casey. Casey=where I was found @ Kansas City-KC. The Galic meaning for Casey is watchful & alert. I am very watchful & alert! I am always watchful for cats, squirells, bikes, motorcyles, mowers = anything that moves I want to chase.
I am very happy they found me & they are very happy I came to live with them.

1st I am a new dog to the household. Now they bought a newer van for rides for me! The old van was blue & the new van is dark maroon (same color as Mum's "go to work" car). Mum forgot to bring her camera. Next time she will so you can see me in the new van.
We went for a ride to a park in the country. Mum & Da said they took Angel Rascal there often in the summer for walks & a picnic. I have to stay on a leash Mum holds. I had her help me chase a squirell & a bunny. Did not catch them, but had fun chasing!
I smelled lots of things in the brush. The weather was nice.
Next time Mum says we will ride to a cemetary. Hmmm? Sounds boring to me, but Angel Rascal liked going there to smell stuff.

My life so far: I had lived for more then 2 years with a man who reported I was an "escape artitist" so he was afraid I would escape & get out on the road by his house & get hit by a car. That is why he brought me to the shelter. I was then adopted for a few weeks by a nice lady. But she took a new job in Paris, Europe & decided I could not go with her to Paris. So back to the shelter I went.
On June 27, 2009 I was adopted again. It was love @ 1st site for me & my new pawparents! They put me in a pretty blue van & told me we were going on a long long long ride to my new home.
1st I was very anxious to see out the window so I climbed on my new Mum's lap. For a few hours we rode along & I kept looking out the windows from Mum's lap or from the back seat. Then we stopped. Mum hooked a leash to my collar & we got out of the van to take a walk. After me & my new pawparents had our "pit stop" we got back in the van for more riding. 2 more "pit stops" & after over a 5 hour ride Mum & Da announced I was now in my new home town.
When I arrived @ my new home I did not want to get out of the van! It had been my home for over 5 hours. Mum held a treat out to me to coax me out of the van. We walked around so I could check out my new yard. Then we went into my new home.
Brody Boxer & his Mum (Mum's daughter) were inside to welcome me!
They gave me a bag of new welcoming things=treats & a new gong ball.
Brody is much taller & bigger then me but we began playing together. Mum would throw a toy & we would both chase after the toy. Sometimes I would get the toy 1st & sometimes Brody would get the toy 1st. If Brody got to the toy faster then me then Mum would throw a different toy for me a different direction then Brody. Brody would drop the 1st toy & come to try to get the 2nd toy. Silly Brody!!
Later Mum took me for a walk with Brody & his Mum. We went around 2 blocks near my new home. I like to walk & meet my new neighborhood.
Brody & his Mum stayed for 2 days. But when they were gone I got Mum & Da all to myself!
Mum put me in a crate the 1st night when she & Da went to bed. But I did not want to be in the crate in another room from them. So I barked! Soon Da told Mum to let me out & shut me in the bedroom & bathroom with them. I slept on a rug by their bed on Da's side all night long.
2nd day after my arrival Mum & Da went to work & left me loose in the house! She came home @ noon to take me for a walk & share some lunch. I did not get into a trouble while she was gone & I did not potty in the house. 3 days after my arrival Da took down the crate & stored it away. I now get to rome the house while Mum is @ work.
Every day Mum & Da learn more about me & I learn more about them, my new home & my new neighborhood.
I am so glad they rescued me!
