but funny, in a sad way. I cant find the paper now, but here is the gist of the ad.
DORGIS! half doxie-half corgi Extremely RARE!! Usually found only in Australia! $800
There was more, but that is the basics. The ad was almost 5 lines long.

very sad though, wondering who will actually be interested.

Maybe...I just read in the newspaper Tuesday that she had to have one of her Corgis "Pharos" (I think that was the name?) euthanized. One of Princess Margaret's ( I think?) Bull Terriers and the Corgi got into a fight, and the BT crushed the bones in one of the Corgi's leg with a bite.
Now...knowing that Veterinary Science is way beyond repairing even a severly crushed leg, the injuries must've been considerably worse than the article let on.

It was Princess Ann the Queens daughter's BT.
I agree that the injuries must have been much worse than what the media let out. Which doesn't surprise me considering it did involve the "Royal" family. I am sure they didn't want excessive amount of attention brought to this.

she shops the classifieds in WV? Emotion: smile
I like the "usually found only in Australlia" though.. Wonder if they flew first class to get here?

IIRC, the Queen of England is a BYBer of Corgi x Dachshunds.
I just read in the newspaper Tuesday that she had to have one of her Corgis "Pharos" (I think that was the name?) euthanized.

i saw an article on that, too. her other BT attacked some kids in a park awhile back, and the one who mauled the Queen's dog also bit a maid. IIRC the Queen's dogs are no saints, either.
Now...knowing that Veterinary Science is way beyond repairing even a severly crushed leg, the injuries must've been considerably worse than the article let on.

yeah, i wondered about that, too. it seems to me that, if it were only a matter of a crushed leg, that leg ought to have been able to be amputated. it sure sounds like there is more to the story than that.

unlikely. i guess the joke fell flat.

as if Australians have cornered the market on BYBing crossbred dogs?

Maybe they're trying to pass them off as Dingos? Both names start with a D after all.

...Or they decided euthanasia was a kinder option than surgery in the older dog.. In the Uk its only been a fairly recent change in attitude (prob since widespread availability of pet insurance) that people are more willing to patch up rather than put down a disabled dog... and I would also guess, given a Corgis' low body & particularly long back, that his full recovery may be compromised. On top of this, I believe the dog was middle aged / elderly and could well have existing complaints not mentioned (cos scary bull terrier stories are more exciting and more profitable).

With regard to British press, if they'll blow things up out of all proportion they'll most certainly try ( and embellish as much as they dare to too) - that sells papers, I've never heard of a royal story being understated and the Royals are certainly not spared or afforded favourable treatment... if anything, I'd say quite the opposite.
