Its a bird its a plane.

This is a goodbye post to my puppy dog Birdie who you might remember from her birthday a few months ago. We got her 12 years ago when I was in 7th grade. I had had a puppy and was doing 4-H with it but it tragically passed away, and about two days after that happened I told my mom I wanted another dog. I even knew I wanted a Welsh Pembroke Corgi because I had been researching dogs for 4-H.

So we looked in the newspaper and asked my 4-H leader and we found a breeder and AKC shower near us and they just happened to have a 2 year old dog, who they weren't showing anymore because she was too scared to do it and had decided to sell her. So we went to meet Birdie (who's full name is "It's a bird its a plane" the whole family was named after Superman things) I liked her, so we ended up getting her.

I started her in 4-H right away, she was pretty funny, she's not a show dog, it made her too nervous and when she was up on the table for the judge to inspect her the entire table would shake! poor dog. But we had fun. I only did 4-H for one year with her. Then she was the just family doggie.

She's been the best doggie ever and I'll miss her so much. If I were to ever get a dog I'd definitely get another Welsh Pembroke Corgi. They're just the best and so sweet and love their person so much. So anyway we have to say goodbye to Birdie on Saturday, my head knows its the right thing but my heart it having a hard time letting go so I think this weekend and next week will be hard for me.
