Jolie has been with us for 10 days now, she has settled well and is starting to thrive. When Jolie first arrived she was a little shy but very loving, now she is even more loving as well as more confident and playful. Jolie really enjoys going for walks and she likes nowhere more than the local park where she meets up with her doggie friends.
On odd occasions Jolie has been brave enough to nose poke the legs of her friend’s pet humans but usually she sits about a foot away and just watches them. She is still a bit shy of new people but she doesn’t panic she just goes to the end of her lead and sits behind me.
At home Jolie is wonderful. We have a set routine with the dogs and Jolie has adapted to it very well, she knows when it is time to eat, go out to the garden, go for walks and she even has her regular tumble time with Hamish in the evening.
Beds are the most curious things with Hamish and Jolie…
Sometimes she is in her own bed.
Sometimes she is in Hamish’s and he is in hers.
And sometimes they just share. 😀
On very odd occasions Indy manages to get a bed. 🙂 ( He usually sleeps on the sofa because he is special)
But always Jolie is adorable and nothing is more adorable than her little fu man chu mustache. 🙂
Photographs don’t do her justice, she is the most gorgeous looking girl who’s fur is a mixture of black, grey, silver, gold and cream and of course no photo could convey her beautiful, gentle and loving nature.
There has been some interest in Jolie via Love Underdogs Facebook page so she may not be with us for long but she is not going to be rushed, she has never been in a home before and has a safe place for now in which to learn about the world. One person rather rudely suggested that we were bad for not keeping her! While remaining polite I pointed out to her that we would have 25 dogs now if we kept all of our fosters!! Why don’t some people understand the role of a fosterer? It is one step on from the rescue kennel on the way to a home, why didn’t she say the kennels were rubbish for not keeping all the dogs that they rescue? One day I will understand people as much as I do dogs, NOT. 😀
A wonderful chap at Love Underdogs who is looking for a home is 7 year old Basil.
Be warned if Basil isn’t adopted by the time Jolie is he will probably be coming home with me 😀 he is delicious.
