Before and after Romania.

I got some pictures today of when Annie was rescued in Romania. 😦

As much as her rescuers loved Annie, they have so many dogs to care for they couldn’t possibly have the time needed to rehabilitate all of them without volunteers, both in the UK and Romania. We foster so we can help in the process of moving dogs like Annie from the streets to a home.

Annie now…

Enjoying her nightly dried tripe.

Even sulking after her tripe has ended she still looks oddly contented. 😀

And a few of my previously posted favourites…

Annie nice face

Hamish loves his sister

We don’t have magic powers or special training skills, all we have is love, patience and time (plus our secret weapons, Indy and Hamish. :-D) It has taken 3 months so far but Annie is genuinely relaxed at home and on her walks, she rarely startles and is happy to be near people just so long as they don’t acknowledge her. When her forever home comes along she will be equipped to cope with the change and will soon love her very own pet people. 🙂

If you are able to help a rescue dog in any way at all, I would say “just do it” it is very rewarding. Donations, volunteering at kennels, dog walking, fostering or adopting, all are needed the world over. If you are in England, don’t overlook Love Underdogs, they are great. 🙂

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 35 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

    I can’t agree more. What a difference you have made in Annie in the time she has been with you. Nothing is more rewarding 🙂

    She has been a pleasure to have in our home, having said that, she is currently hiding in the garden because I just dropped the tv remote on the floor! :- D
