News from Jolie.

It is always nice when a foster dog stays in touch. Jolie has been in her new home for 2 weeks now and is settling in nicely. She was nervous of her new dad for the first day but soon got attached to him, he did the right things by walking with her and doing her grooming etc.

Jolie now lives in a small village near the English border with Wales so has the benefit of some gorgeous countryside to walk in. After she had been in her new home for a couple of days she got scared by something and pulled out of her collar and ran away! Her dad followed her a short distance and she was waiting for him in a dead end lane, he calmed her and then put her collar back on and went home, that’s why I use a harness with nervous dogs.

Jolie now has 2 feline siblings, she was OK with cats when she was with us unless Hamish started shouting at them in which case she would join in, she seems happy enough with the cats in her family if a little unsure of them.

I think Jolie is going to have a good life, she lives in a lovely place that has a lovely big paddock for her to play in, with nice people who love her. What more could a dog want? πŸ™‚

I am going to feature Chip again. Chip is exactly my kind of dog and would be mine if I didn’t have Hamish, Chip is the same personality as Hamish and there are only so many scatty, playful, boisterous pooches I can cope with. πŸ˜€

Chip is with Love Underdogs in Warwickshire but can be rehomed anywhere in The UK.




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

      That’s exactly why we do it, Tom. πŸ™‚
      If I’m honest I am quite jealous of Jolie, she has a lovely house in a tiny village surrounded by the best of English countryside. πŸ˜€
