This week’s pupper is Pookie, the companion of Christy Hultgren.
Christy says about Pookie, “She’s a corgi. I got her from a breeder who didn’t want her anymore because she was sterile. When I brought her home she was terrified of everything: the radio, tv, running water, cars and people. Such a loving creature. In January 2018 I started getting sick, sometimes it came on quickly, other times not. She has been by my side every time, protecting me, knowing something was wrong. In August of last year I had surgery again because the tumor had come back. Pookie follows me everywhere and even insists on sleeping next to me. And there are times when I wake up to her lying on a pillow above me, licking my forehead. I’m still dealing with health issues; Transgeminal trophic syndrome, balance and coordination, etc. and she is still by my side. These days you can find me on the couch and Pookie is by my side or insists on lying on my lap providing comfort. Some people would say that Pookie is the lucky one to have a home like mine, I say I’m the lucky one.”
