I’d like to give a signal boost if I could pretty please to this sweet corgi and his family. They are partway to their goal of paying for their little guy’s ACL repair surgery and could still use a hand with the rest. <3
Look At This Resilient Dog of the Day: A Welsh Corgi named Ole, who managed to survive the avalanche that killed one of his owners, surprised his family by showing up four days later at their motel room in Cooke City, Montana.
“I just saw it outside sitting by the room, which is pretty amazing,” said avalanche specialist Mark Staples.
Dave Gaillard of Bozeman was killed after being buried by an avalanche southeast of town in Hayden Creek. His wife Kerry managed to escape by clinging to a tree.
“His last words to me were, ‘Retreat to the trees.’ I think he saw what was coming from above, that I did not see. That reflects Dave’s amazing quality — thinking of others,” she told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
Ole was believed to have been buried under the snow as well, but must have tunneled his way out. Still, the trek back to Cooke City was likely treacherous, with temperatures below freezing, and deep snow that would be taxing for the dog’s short legs.
“How in the world he made it, I don’t know,” said Kay Whittle, the wife of a local businessman who returned the pup to his family. “If he could just talk — who knows what he did from the day of the avalanche until today?”
Aw, thank YOU for your kind words!! I hope you have many corgi snufflings in your future also :D
Here, Brook and Tryst display the fine and delicate art of Corgi Wrasslin’.
This complex ritual takes the form of dance, requiring both participants to alternatively submit and dominate each other.
This is a perfect example of Movement #16, the mutual submission. If we were allowed to film this dance, we would hear the following formal dialogue;
Brook: You’re handsome! You win!
Tryst: No, no, YOU’RE terribly good looking! You win!
Brook: I know you are, but what am I?
Tryst: Boy, YOU are a fine looking corgi.
Corgis. Get Some.
I firmly believe that corgis are wonderful, that they bring love and joy to the world like goofy funny furry fairies. I have chosen to answer the call and spread more of said love and joy to the world. I welcome you to do the same!
Submit to the corgi!
