Denby Dog is much like any other corgi. He is absolutely cute, he enjoys lying in the sun, playing with squeaky toys, and he will definitely let you know when he is hungry. He just goes about his day a bit differently from most. Unable to eat or drink on his own for the last 9 years, Denby is fed through a tube. Also diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), a disease that results in degeneration of the white matter of the spinal cord, Denby uses a cart for mobility. But in the face of these obstacles, with the help of a loving family, he enjoys a full and quality life. Through his Facebook page, he shares his life's joys while providing education about special needs pets. Denby isn't just a story about special needs. He is also a story about fun. Like many of the pets who have Facebook pages, Denby provides comic relief. He has numerous fun costumes, and it seems that his cart is always in some form of decoration. Learn about Denby in the interview that follows. I hope that you too find it as educational, inspiring, and heart touching as I did. -By Carleen Coulter
