the underdog

what it is about the underdog that brings out the very best in us?  is it overcoming impossible odds? doing the ordinary when nobody gives the downtrodden even that much hope?  well this guy was the runt, and here's his story.  his name is dozer, he was born an underdog, and he is now famous....   i could have posted another video, but the way ABC News tells the story is the best, so click the link.

do you have any underdog moments?  leave a comment below

  1. One of our current dogs is a pure-bred rat terrier. Like dozer, she was the last of the litter, not deemed right for show due to her powerful shoulders and hips. The breeder had decided to keep our dog as a pet, but she sold us the little dog I now call Ricochet. The little dog who was too brawny for breeding cleared our large lot of moles and is a wonderful companion for my mother. No facebook page or fund-raising for her, but we think she's the cat's pajamas.

    The cat, of course, begs to differ.

    Thanks for the sweet, funny news story. For me, you can't go wrong if you talk about dogs. :)

  2. I love this story. I've been the underdog more than once, but I've never done it with as much grace as Dozer does. What a cool dog! Thank you for sharing this, Sammy. Many pop tarts your way.
