The author of My Name is Rosie says, "After loving a big yellow Labrador for almost fourteen years, I thought I would need to wait at least a couple of years after he died before taking another dog into my life. I was heartbroken. Leave it to the wisdom of a child to lead me to Rosie - only two months after Kodiak died, my daughter, who was nine at the time, begged me to come see a litter of Pembroke Welsh Corgis she’d discovered. 'Mama, they're so cute!' Both my husband and I were familiar with Corgis and had thought at one point we’d like to get to know the breed. Corgis are herding dogs, smart and energetic, and cute as can be. So I agreed to take a look, but made no promises. To my surprise, the breeder had chosen to not dock the tails. Within minutes of visiting the pups, my daughter fell in love with the lone female and named her Rosie. I wasn't far behind. Two days later, we took her home."
