Day out at the dog show.

Today we took Indy and Hamish to the Love underdogs fun day, it was fun. Indy met hundreds of dogs and even entered the oldies section of the dog show. Hamish loved meeting the dogs and a few of the people. We got to meet some of the wonderful Love underdogs people and they let us foster Annie. 🙂

We spent some time in a paddock with Annie while the boys were loose just sniffing around, for the most part they ignored Annie, which we have always found to be a good sign. Just before we left the boys laid down with Annie and they shared a lick or two. The journey home was very relaxed, she just flopped down in the car while Hamish and Indy hogged the open windows.

We got home and Julia took Annie to the garden while I put up a crate for her “hidey hole” she had a good explore and a wee, came in and went in her crate for a few minutes.

As it was time to feed Hamish and Indy, we gave Annie some food and she ate some! I was surprised that she relaxed so soon. She has had a good look around the ground floor of the house and has found a spot in the kitchen that she likes. she is now resting there. 🙂

Annie did have a quick look around Hamish’s giant crate which is where all toys live, as she decided to lay right where his toys are he had a sulk and went and threw himself down in Indy’s little bed. 😀

I think she will do just fine, a few days of finding her feet and getting to know us all and then she can start to explore the world.

There are many gorgeous dogs at Love underdogs, all shapes, sizes, colours and ages so if you are looking for a companion take a look at the website for more information.


About Mick C Gorman

Slightly damaged old bloke who is plodding on with more than a little help from a great wife. I have been married for 36 years and have 2 grown up children. I did the usual thing and replaced children with dogs when the nest became empty, best thing I ever did (apart from getting married of course). Life has taken a few interesting turns so far but this Epilepsy thing beats the lot! I love lots of things but in the past have never really stuck with them long enough to be good at them, I am trying harder to be better at a few things rather than okay at loads of things. There is still plenty of time. :-D

    She is a little darling, quite timid but once she gets some confidence will make someone a great companion. 🙂

    What a wonderful story. Good luck with your new addition 🙂 Rescued dogs are so loving and grateful.

      Thank you. Annie is about our 20th foster dog in the last 6 years, every one of them have added something to our life. You are right about rescue dogs, Our last adopted dog, Mack and now Hamish have been very loving despite a traumatic start to their lives. 🙂
