Not quite a foster dog…

…Shall we call him a guest?

Pepper has come to stay for a while as his human has had to go into hospital at short notice. We have known Pepper since he arrived at Wiccaweys from Ireland about 5 years ago, he was adopted by a near neighbour so we see him all the time.

Pepper is extremely well behaved and has been trained to a high standard so he is very easy to look after. He gets on with Indy and Hamish but like Indy he will growl at Hamish if his space is invaded. (poor Hamish, he is only trying to be one of the lads)

Like our boys, Pepper sits at all kerbs although Indy is now excused that as he has sore hips.

Julia does the mass walk in the mornings and she walks Indy and Pepper in the afternoon while I take Hamish for his very long run on my buggy (that’s me on the buggy, Hamish running) 😀

I don’t know if it is the Bearded Collie in Indy but he really gets on with Pepper? Indy looks all Border Collie but his dad was a Beardie and like Pepper he looked like Chewbacca!! 😀

Pepper as Chewbacca.

The Collie boys are not the only photogenic ones so I took a few pictures of Hamish today as well.

There is not much to report other than the pooches. My health is the same, we are still searching for our ideal motorhome/RV and the summer weather is still lovely enough for me to enjoy sitting in the garden. Not too much to grumble about. 🙂

Good news from Love Underdogs.

My favourite oldies Angelika and Tommy have been reserved and Basil has been adopted and the gorgeous Trinity who I featured on the last blog is also reserved. It has been a very good few weeks for adoptions for some of the longer term woofers but there are still more lovely dogs needing a home.

Florence is 8 years old and although shy at first is very affectionate, she would like to be an only dog in a quiet home.

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

    Great news about the adoptions, and glad you have Pepper to keep you company and help out his owner. Woof, woof!

    I really love the Chewbacca look. But how do you keep a dog like that clean and free from burrs and tangles?

    • He has a daily brushing which he hates and the burrs are picked out after every walk (he finds many while out) I am glad he is only a guest, we wouldn’t have time for his coat care permanently. 🙂
