Help from a Corgi – Saturday 8th February 2020

Help from a Corgi

We need help from a Corgi. I know that sounds an odd request, but I can explain. Please don’t tell Alfie what I’m about to say. You see, on 25th of February he will be 14 years, 3 months and 12 days old. Mum has worked out that if a human year is the same as 7 dog years, then that is the day he celebrates his 100th Birthday. When a human reaches their 100th birthday in this country, they are sent a telegram by the Queen. We think then that it’s only right and proper for Alfie to receive a special message from a Corgi. We would have liked it to be one of the Queen’s corgis, but sadly she doesn’t have any anymore. It would be really special if there is a Corgi out there related to the Queen’s Corgis, but quite honestly we’ll settle for any Corgi, Pembrokeshire or Cardigan.

What we would like

If you are a Corgi reading this, or if you have a friend who is a Corgi, what we’d really like is for you to send a photo of yourself and a happy 100th birthday message by email to and then I’ll give them to Alfie on his actual 100th birthday. He won’t see them before that as it’s me now who checks his email account so you are quite safe to send them as soon as you like so I’ve got them ready. He will be so happy if he gets some special messages so please all you Corgis or friends of Corgis do respond. It will be huge fun for him. We really didn’t think he was going to make it this far, so it will make it very special.

In other news

In exciting news as far as I’m concerned, Mum managed to walk two miles with me yesterday. Oh we had such a lovely time. She’s still having to be a little slower and more careful than normal, but we had a great time catching up on news and enjoying the fresh air. I found some manure to chew on, which was particularly exciting. Oddly Mum resisted that bit. She has said by this time next week she wants to be doing at least three miles. We even managed to leave Alfie for half an hour without him getting upset, so things are really looking up.

Love Wilma
