Willow is My Cardigan Welsh Corgi who was born on the anniversary of 9/11 . We bred her ourselves. We also own her mother, Jess, and father, Robbie. Willow was the runt of the litter. (7 in the litter and all the rest were males). She was very small compared with the other pups, and quite lethargic. We didn’t know if she would pull through. For the first 4 weeks of her life I hand fed her extra milk to make sure she was getting enough and made sure she always had a teat on her mother and didn’t get pushed off by the other pups.
Through it all, Willow watched over me. She lay at my side day and night. She helped me to feel better by her actions. She would cuddle up with me on the sofa and didn’t want to get up and leave me. Willow alerts me to sounds such as the phone, when someone knocks at the door, the food timer in the kitchen and, when we are out, cars. She has never been trained to do any of that, she just does it Willow is my guardian angel and owe so much to her. Earlier this year Willow was awarded the PDSA Commendation Award .
