Adventures in Cardigans, life, herding and whatever else we can get into!
Dogs at Lake Dora

I am very sad to say Ch Cornerstone's New Light ROM, left Rita today at just over 13yrs old. Being Belis sister made her family but her quiet very sweet demeanor endeared her to my heart forever. Shimmer was such a dear girl and even though she was not mine I feel like a part of my pack died. I remember seeing Shimmer at only a couple weeks old, she was "Miss Piggy" in the litter. She grew into a beautiful regal Cardigan girl. Only a couple years ago we went to visit Rita and Beli and Shimmer had such a good time playing in the front yard when I went to say goodbye to Rosy (Ch Maranathas Cornerstone Rosy ROMS their mother). That was the last time Beli and Shimmy got to play but we did get to see her one last time in FL. The picture above is Beli/Shimmers "Goodbye Pic". Tears roll down my cheeks now because this loss is so close to home, I know that my future holds that difficult day for Beli and I. I hope it is years away but you just never know. So hug your dogs tonight in memory of Shimmer. Goodbye dear sweet Shimmer, see you over the Rainbow Bridge!
