Arrival Story:
Jilly came to me as a 5 year old rescue 9 years ago. Life has not been the same since. She was born in New Zealand and spent the first few years of her life with her first owner in Hawaii. What a character! She is an honest "in your face" with furr.

Bio:
Jilly is a member of the family. She has actually taught me to love again as I don't have kids. She is like a daughter to me. She is so smart that we have to watch what I say or she will know. She has also learned words when they are spelled out. I am humble to admit that she owns the place.. :) Jilly has completed numerous (more for us to learn then for Jilly) clicker training classes, fun tricks class, basic obedience as well. She is a proud holder of the AKC "Canine Good Citizen" (CGC) Award. She is currently recoverying from a spinal operation. She lost the use of her back legs in January 2006. But since then she has regained about 80% of the use. But she can not balance as of yet. She goes to water therapy a few times a week.

Jilly on the Prowl


Jill's is still strong!

Jilly is now almost deaf. She turned 14 on June 3rd, 2009.

She still runs the house. If breakfast (for her) is not at 730am, she barks, barks and barks. That is for the girlfriend. She doesn't do anything if I am only at the house and get up at 10am to feed her. Well, I think she farts in protest. And to be honest... Those farts can peel the paint off a late model Buick. And can remind a person of a bad childhood (Remember of "pull my finger"?, Jilly took out the "Pull"). Yet, she is well. Older, slower, but still there. I love her so.

But I think Jilly is pulling my finger with her hearing. If I say "treat" in low tones. Then she hears. Plastic wrappers? She hears. I think she mastered the selective hearing stage. She needs to run for offfice. :)

My Boo is not new. She is my life

My boo is me. I love her.


She loves between being handicapped.

Hard to explain. She is loved by all.

 

She Walks!

She walks now. Not much. But she does it when she thinks not a soul is looking. Her walk is not steady because one leg is weaker then the other. But I catch her walking around. She tends to walk when she is "doing her business". To be honest, I do not blame her. But boy, am I excited! Jilly is 12 1/2 now. Started walking again after her two ruptured discs two years ago. That's like forcing an elderly person to start walking in the 70's! She did it herself. Jilly has more balls then I could ever have. This furry Corgi continues to teach me. I am in debt to her.

I got a Radio Flyer wagon for her to use on weekends. It's to just let her smell her surroundings and not have to worry about walking. My thinking was that she would enjoy herself more and her surroundings without having to "work" to get there. I took some images and I will upload them as soon as I can.

Jilly (I hope) doesn't know I know she walks. I catch her at times. I think she
knows that I know. Yet, I always catch her walking AWAY from me of where
she was. She is of the sneaky sort. Is this part of a Corgi plan? I am happy as
hell.

She is older. I didn't want my Jills to go out unless it was on her terms. I know
it might be hard to explain. I just do not accept her being helpless. Little did I
know she has more guts then I do. And this comes from an a former Marine
with an honorable discharge.

Jilly should have enlisted in the Corps. :)
