A Dog Named Star.

A story about a Corgi pup named "Star".

"Star" is probably my bestest friend in the whole world.  She knows me better tahn anybody.

"Star" is a Welsh Corgi.  She is mostly cinnamon-colored with white, with big, bright dark eyes and a sweet smile on her face.  She may be little in comparison to a lot of dogs, but she is a lot of fun, and I am glad I have her.

"Star" came into my life three years ago, when my seizures were at their worst.  I was going through a lot of stuff, and it seemed to make my seizures worse.  I have epilepsy, and if I stress out about major things, I seem to have more seizures than usual. 

Like school, for instance.  The kids there made fun of me because I happened to have a seizure while in class, and ever since then, they laughed at me and called me nasty names.  I couldn't handle all their teasing or bullying, so my parents pulled me out of school, and now I am homeschooled, which seems to be better for me.

Then came "Star".  Mom and dad both knew I was lonely, so they both figured that a furry companion would be ideal.  Enter my little pal.  Ever since, my life has done a complete tu rnaround because now, whenever we go out, "Star" is with me, and people seem to like me because of my pet.  It's been one miracle after another.

All of a sudden, I have a circle of friends who sometimes come to my house to play Wii, watch tv, play on the computer, or play with "Star".  "Star", of course, loves the extra attention, and my friends, they love her nearly as much as I do.

Because of my newfound friends, and because I am now homeschooled, my seizures seemed to have calmed down considerably: I only have them maybe every few weeks instead of nearly every day, like I did when my stress was at its worst.  I owe everything to my parents, and especially to "Star".

Like most dogs, "Star" loves to play fetch, roll around in the yard (leaves and mud are her favorites), stand up on command and "dance" (I call it her breakdancing phase), show off for me, my friends, and other people, and sleep with me.  She is constantly at my side, and whenever I have a seizure, she barks her warning bark, to let other people know that I need help.  She is very good at being a little watchdog/service dog!  She is the best thing that could have ever happened to me!

I don't know what I would do if anything bad were to happen to my little pet.  It would just crush my spirit!  For now, though, I enjoy every waking minute with my dog, and I wish everyone could see just how happy that "Star" has made me!

Cool dog. I had a black lab with epilepsy so I had to be his star. He appreciated too. Patrick
