Izzie’s Special Role by Tamilee Webb

Hi Everyone, recently found out that fitness queen Tamilee Webb, one of our favorite exercise gurus, is a huge animal lover. She shares with the special role her dog Izzie has played in her life as well as the life of her beloved Corky.  Thank you Tamilee!

“Izzie was brought into our life to help my blind dog Corky (Pug/Boston Terrier mix) who just lost his sister Kassie (Lhasa) to a coyote.  Not feeling like I was ready for another dog after losing Kassie, I found Corky very depressed and lonely.  After consulting with an animal specialist she thought it would be good to rescue another dog that was similar to Kassie but let Corky have the final decision.  After looking at many shelters, and online, I saw this little big eyed little dog on line at Holly’s Garden Rescue who named her Tess.  She was missing her front  right leg which didn’t matter to us, it was something about her eyes that caught my attention.  After meeting her a couple of times and introducing Corky to her, he welcomed her into our home by finding his way to his toy box and bring her one of his toys, it was the first time he seemed happy since Kassie.  We decided to rename her Isabella Cinderella and call her “izzie”, she brought so much joy to both of us!  She enjoyed pulling Corky around by his leash and would do whatever he wanted to do, but four months later, Corky became very ill with a Kidney Failure and joined Kassie.  I was devastated, Izzie would hop over to me and rest her sweet face next to mine and lick my tears.  Little did I know she was really was brought into MY life to get me through loosing my other two babies.  She goes most everywhere with me, to my exercises classes, movies, meetings, planes, & events.  I feel like I won the lottery”.    Tamilee Webb
