Foster dog, Cleo.

It has been 3 weeks since we brought Cleo home. Today I was intending to do a detailed post about her to help her to get adopted.


I was going to say how she has gone from being a skinny nervous wreck to a slightly fuller more confident girl.


Scaredy pooches

I was going to mention how much she bonded with Hamish, she follows him everywhere and mimics his silly antics.

I would have probably said that she has started to enjoy a bit of fuss and attention.


But what’s the point? She has gone and got herself adopted! 🙂

We got a message last week that someone wanted to meet her, I expected a little old lady with an equally old dog looking for a companion as this would have been ideal for nervous Cleo. We got to Love Underdogs today and there was a young couple with a nice dog and a CHILD!!!! I was sure that Cleo would either shut down or run a mile. When I realized that Hamish was being a distraction to her even though we were in a different paddock, I took him for a walk in the woods and left Julia with Cleo. We got back 20 minutes later to find the people completing the adoption papers. They loved her and she loved them. You just never know who will be right for the dog until you meet them. 🙂

There was some more good news at Love Underdogs, Chip who is a favourite of everyone has been reserved to be collected tomorrow. 🙂 It was a complete mystery why he has been waiting so long? I happened to mention that I could give him a short term foster but was told he has a home. Nobody deserves a new home more than Chip. As this picture shows he is a bit of a character. 😀

Wacky Chip

I will have another short break from fostering because our granddaughter is coming from Spain soon to stay for a month, it would be nice to have room for her in the house of pooches. 😀



A wonderful Love Underdog looking for a home is Midnight.


Midnight is a lot like Cleo in that he is the same age and also a little shy but very playful, he would like a home without young children but older dog wise kids are fine.








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

    Love the good stories and the happy people. I especially like it when a young child gets to bond with a good dog.
