Jolie Underdog.

It has been a little over 3 weeks since Jolie came to stay, she has settled in wonderfully. Jolie is going to be the perfect pet for some lucky family, her only issue which is very minor is that she is shy around new people but she soon gets over that as can be seen in this picture from a morning park walk.

As long as she has her brothers with her she is very brave.

Around the house Jolie acts as though she has always lived in a home when in reality she had never been in one until she came to us. Jolie loves to lay by the fireplace which is close to my chair so that she is in easy reach of any scruffles that are on offer. πŸ™‚

She even does her praying by the fire. πŸ˜€

She will even stay by my chair while Julia is using the vacuum! it is obvious from her face that she would rather it wasn’t there but she isn’t moving for some noisy machine.

Her favourite place to be when in the house is wherever Hamish is, she really loves Hamish. (who wouldn’t)?

We had a lovely morning at a country park this week and Jolie loved the freedom of the long line, exploring is a good thing and Indy and Hamish showed her how to get the most out of the new surroundings.

Hamish showed Jolie how to snuffle in the woods and get muddy and Indy taught her about twigs and sticks, she was a little optimistic with some of her stick choices! πŸ˜€

So, all in all Jolie is making great progress. She loves her people, she loves all dogs, she isn’t a big woos like Hamish and she loves fuss so I would say she is perfect. I almost forgot… she is beautiful too. πŸ™‚

How many more updates I do very much depends on the sense of the British people, if her potential is spotted soon then I guess I wont be doing very many.



Love Underdogs have one of the most wonderful dogs now available for adoption, Bobbi has come through some major trauma and surgery and has come out the other end as a magnificent dog. His story can be read here and details on how to adopt him or any other Love Underdogs dog can be found here.




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

    It has been much too long since I visited your blog. But how wonderful to come by at this moment. It is really quite wonderful what you do for all these dogs that have been treated so badly before. They are all so lucky to have found you.

      Welcome back. πŸ™‚
      Thank you for your kind comment. I get so much pleasure from the foster dogs especially knowing the lives they have had before they were rescued. Jolie wasn’t abused as far as we know, she was found as a puppy with severe leg injuries after a traffic accident.

      Hello Tom.
      We have been very lucky with all our fosters (25 so far) Indy has been great with all of them as was Luca our late Golden Retriever, Hamish is just a big goofball that loves all dogs. πŸ˜€
      Jolie is a real delight to have here, I think Hamish will miss her when she goes.
