Goodbye Roxy.

Roxy has been adopted today. She has gone to live with the parents of our friend and fellow dog nut, Eleanor. 🙂

Her new home is in a quiet village location where she has a large garden that opens on to fields with a stream for her to play in (she will play in it every day) She will live with a Border Collie and some cats.

We are going to seriously miss Roxy, she has been a real delight to have for the few weeks that she has been with us. Roxy leaving has coincided with Pepper going home for a week so it is really quiet here with just Indy and Hamish.

A final pose with her dear foster brothers.



Julia and I got a final kiss from Roxy but she got so excited with me it ended with her chewing on my chin. 😀



It is always bitter sweet when a foster baby finds a home, there are always damp eyes  but we end up happy that we have played a small part in a dogs journey from despair, suffering and neglect to being a part of a real family.

Pepper will be back next week when his person is due the next round of chemo so it will only be quiet for a little while. 😀


1 Day update November 9

Roxy loves her new people, she is either sitting by her new dad or following him around the garden, that of course when she is not in the fields.

Roxy with her Collie brother, Brynn and cousins Smeagol and Tor.

And finally, Roxy swimming with Smeagol.


It’s like she never knew us, as sad as it appears it is great to see a foster baby settled with their new people. 🙂


Tundra is a stunningly beautiful dog with a very attaching nature. She does need a little time to relax around new people, but with those she knows, she is really loving.

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

    So glad Roxy got a forever home. She looks so happy there. I don’t think I could foster….I’d have a really hard time giving them up. I get attached way too quickly.
