Christmas would not be Christmas without stories.  This year, CorgiAid.org offers its third edition of The Watching:  Corgi Christmas Miracles by Millie Williams.  While the story focuses on adventures with Corgis, wry little dogs favored by kids and adults alike, it’s a Christmas tale, too — warming the hearts of both old and young.

This book not only makes a great holiday gift for the dog-lovers in your life — the proceeds also go for a worthy cause.  CorgiAid pays medical bills for Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis and mixes whose owners cannot afford them.  This allows cash-strapped owners to keep their precious dogs alive and healthy longer — and sometimes saves the lives of dogs who might otherwise meet a sadder end.

CorgiAid’s home page shares stories of many of the dogs whose lives have been saved and made better over the years.

In addition to selling the book itself, the original Corgi art is being auctioned this week through a special Ebay auction.  Many of the featured artists whose art appears in the book are quite famous in their own right — and have a following of collectors.  The proceeds of the auction, too, go to CorgiAid entirely.  So if you’re an original art collector or fan of dog art, all the more reason to check out the auction — and pick up a book or two for the dog lovers in your family or network of friends.

It all goes to a worthy cause — and the books are not only gorgeous, they are heart-warming stories that will carry you through the coldest of winter nights.
Buy this book!  And check out the auction, too while you’re there.

Oh!  I almost forgot to mention — some of the art will be offered through Cafe Press as magnets and Christmas ornaments, too.  Those are really special, one-of-a-kind items that make great stocking stuffers.  Just another reason to visit and shop 🙂
