What if someone wants me, (well you never know). The person who was going to adopt me took one look and adopted a cat instead this was last year but here is what I said and felt. (from old post)
Hi, broken hearted Bobby here,The Mop is always saying mum and dad; I said its John and Brenda. It is to you, he said, because you don’t belong here really you don’t have a proper home you don’t have a mum and dad, You are just a foster dog.But of course I have, Brenda and John are my mum and dad, its just I am older than the Mop so I am allowed to call them by their first names.Then last night I went to bed at 2130 as usual, then very late John came up and I looked up, he said you could be going to a new home soon. I was so pleased I like new places.I woke early this morning and when I walked into the room John was teaching the Mop how to do my blog, I said he can not do that, John said he will have to learn If you go to a new home, what! Me, just me on my own, I thought you meant we were all going.My little heart was pounding I really have tried to be good, if John calls me when we are out I come straight away, I only grump at some dogs, I have even been playing with the Mop. I thought John loved me now, he is always saying, aw, our little Bobby.I did not mean to cock my leg and wee down Mary’s jeans in the park, There was a few of us there and no one saw me do it, when Mary felt it and said I think it was Bobby, John stuck up for me and said, you are blaming poor little Bobby because he is the only dog who has not got a proper home, they all went aww, so if that’s what it’s about, I promise I will never do it again.I know I go on about wanting a home, but I really thought they could not let me go, because they care for me so much.I love them both and now I am so worried about moving on with out John who seems to understand me so well.My little heart is aching I feel like it is breaking in two, I am so frightened what is going to become of me?????

This was me begging John to adopt me, he just keeps saying you might get a nice new family.
Now who would want to have this little Pip (Mop) doing my blog. He is just too silly.
Now I have some furends and friends I am sure you could organise an adopt Grumpy Bobby campaign.

Hi Bobby
We would be happy to oganise a campaign - what would it take to prove to you that you are already adopted?
We think John is just pulling your leg but we rehomed doggies are very insecure!
As for Pip doing the blog well that could never happen. He is far too young and immature!

We have put a link to your campaign in our sidebar and will ask all dogs to stop by and leave a message for John to adopt you.

Oh good heavens...we're all sobbing have a proper home....tell that John that you're adopting him!! As for the dude who adoptin' the CAT had a narrow escape there!!!!!

Now Bobby...we've never met ya...but this is ridiculous...if you need a little terrier "persuasion" (ie we'll come and dig up ur garden or somethin') just let us know....

Hey little dude! You could come and live with us Beagles but you look pretty set where you are now....besides, we are quite naughty and you'd probably pick up our bad habits! Tell John to stop yankin yer chain and tak a grip o' himsel''re already home!

When Mommy was 4 she packed a suitcase and told her parents she was running away to leave with the couple two doors down because they "didn't have any kids and they'd appreciate her!" I think you should try this same tactic with John. He clearly is not appreciating you for the wonderful terrier you are.

If that doesn't work, pee on his leg and mark him as yours.

Your pal,


P.S. Also tell him to listen to the Auntie Bassets as they are very wise-ish.

Bobby, I'm dog-a-blogging sobbing for you pal. Who could resist your handsome face and that wide smile? Where do I sign? I can forge a few for you too, heee, us terriers are cunning. You sure John isn't teasing you Bobby?? I mean who would ever give smart boy who can blog like you. Mop looks pretty lost on the pooter. Just bark out Bobby I'll be over to help you sort John and Brenda out.

I think John should adopt you at once, the park would not be the same without you grumping at the trees. What a guy youare old grump.

taz and all the dogs in need said...

Bless you Bobby, John, Brenda and the Mop simply would not be without you now, go on adopt them

Simba and Jazzi said...

Oh John. Adopt already!

susie said...

Bobby i overheard my mam saying she would love to have you but thinks you would pine for John as you look up at him as if he is a god and as for peeing on her leg she said you did that just to let the other dogs know you are her best friend and she said poor Bobby the other day John took pip and evo to the local bar after their walk but left Bobby in the van looking out the window and you could see Bobby was thinking if John adopted me i would be would be able to go with them John you must adopt Bobby come on have a heart

I will put her in doors up for adoption, than I will adopt you Bobby

Pedro said...


You broke my little heart with that post. Really! I think you should stay right where you are with John and Brenda. You love them and I think they would miss you too much if you left. I am sad. Please don't leave. I like your blog and I don't find you grumpy at all. Heck, I'm grumpy sometimes too. I received your rocks today and they're great! They fit perfectly in my mom's table. My mom took a bunch of pictures and will post about it in few days. We just put a post up on a beach glass delivery and another on on Tuesday about some Spanish shells. The post about your UK pebbles will hit the blog on Wednesday or Thursday! Thank you so much for finding them and sending them to me!

I have an adoption certificate for you on our blog!
Just so its official.

BenTheRotti said...


John should make it official right now.. Mum says he can't send you away or she will find you, kidnap you and bring you right back.. where you belong.. home.. with your Mum & Dad (John and Brenda).
Who would supervise the burning of the sausages when Brenda is away?? Who would ridicule the Mop (and lets face it thats too much fun for it to stop!!) Who would stock-take the squeaky collection?? Who would Mum fill her pockets with treats for next time we come to the beach?? Who would be my grumpy buddy???

Nope.. not happening.. you will be


officially before the weeks out.. I demand it and I'm very persuavive when I want to be!!

Millie sends puppy kisses and smooches.

Tee said...

OHhh, i can't bear to read this ... This is so sad. I'd get the Chief to adopt you right away and you can live happily ever after with us at Dog Woods if we're not that far away!

He has until midnight tonight to pick up his Adoption Certifcate, or else................
