On Sunday we had a lovely, if a little chilly day at Love Underdogs fun dog show and reunion. The purpose of the day is for adopters to meet up while at the same time raising funds to enable other dogs to be rescued. It was a successful day with a lot of people attending and a decent amount of money being raised. :-)
On a personal note our boys were very good, Indy was just Indy and behaved impeccably as usual and Hamish showed great signs of improvement especially with children, he barked at a few people who got too close to him but settled after a while and relaxed. :-)
A few times during the day Indy was mistaken for Chip, Chip is a gorgeous boy who I have added to my blog a few times in the hope of finding him a home, so far to no avail. :-( I would foster Chip but his energy and personality is too close to Hamish which would cause chaos at home!
The beautiful Chip.
I tried to take some photos of the fun dog show so that the prize winners could be shown on Love Underdogs Facebook page, A former Love Underdogs boy called Yol decided that I should photograph him instead so he photobombed me. :-D
One of the trade stands sold home made dog treats which judging by the dog on the table were very good. :-D
These are some of the other previous Love Underdogs residents who have been lucky enough to be adopted.
I love this “oldie” he reminds me of Budha who we fostered recently. :-)
It was a great day during which lots of people roamed the kennels meeting dogs with a view to adopting. If you are thinking of getting a dog and you are in the Uk, check out Love Underdogs first as they rehome to all areas of the UK. If you live elsewhere in the world there will be a local rescue centre or shelter near you, many of which will be breed specific in case you have your heart set on a pedigree dog.
On a sad note. I have featured Bobbi several times recently, he had overcome a bad spinal problem and after expensive surgery and rehab to learn to walk again. In recent weeks Bobbi’s health has deteriorated and yesterday he died. It has been a very hard time for all who knew Bobbi but especially for the team at Glebe Farm who have cared for him for so long. :-(
Rest in peace Bobbi.
