Not going out.

It has been a few weeks that I have been stuck at home. A little bit of Epilepsy brain and a lot of MS symptoms have made it unsafe to venture far. I have had the joy of going to the dentist twice for a broken tooth. 😀  Finally I have been able to venture out with the pooches. Winter isn’t the best time to ride my buggy around the park, when it is cold and wet it is not nice to get plastered in mud! Frosty dry days are the best days during winter, the boys love it and I don’t get mucky.

We have had Pepper again for the past week, he went home this evening until his person has their next round of chemo in a weeks time.

We have had the pleasure of an unexpected pooch visitor this weekend. Julia visited my Mum yesterday and on the way home came across a lost little dog. She did the usual detective work starting with a trip to the vet to get him scanned for a microchip which he doesn’t have, it is compulsory for dogs to be chipped now. After a lot of internetting and phoning around we tracked down a possible owner so Julia drove across town only to find they weren’t home! She left her number at the house and eventually got a call from the owner. 🙂


This is the little chap that we named Rocket for the weekend.


We discovered that Rocket is a Chihuahua/Jack Russel cross, believe it or there is a name for this?? Rocket is a Jackchi. 😀 What is the world coming to when we have to give funny names to mongrels? I am not a little dog person normally but this is the second tiny pooch we have found that I have been sad to see going home. When Rocket’s person came to collect him he did get a lecture from Julia about getting him micro chipped. Julia kept it friendly by telling him he would get a fine as well as kennel charges if the dog warden picks him up next time but what appeared to hit home with him was that someone else could find Rocket, have him chipped and keep him and he would have no evidence that Rocket was his.  Maybe in the future when we need another dog I may consider a little one, that’s what old blokes have, isn’t it?


I am not featuring an Underdog this time but directing people to Love Underdogs website. At this time of year they run a shoe box appeal to collect essentials for the Romanian dogs, also there is a Love Underdogs 2017 calendar for sale to raise funds for future rescue work.

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

    Sorry you have been stuck at home, except for the dentist. Looks like the dogs were enjoying their time out in the park. Hope you are feeling better.

    Bummer about being stuck at home, but great that you had some time with the little Rocket. Hang in there.
