Year of the Dog Day 59

Today I met up with my friends Emma and Tim to meet there beautiful Rough Collie Laila, she’s so lush! It was quite nice knowing that I definitely wouldn’t have a problem finding a dog today! We went for a walk around Whittaker park in Rawtenstall, it was really nice! As soon as we saw Laila she came running up to us to say hello and gave my son Ethan a kiss! She’s really made an impression on Ethan, he keeps asking me where Laila has gone! Laila is a super friendly dog, there wasn’t a dog in the park that she didn’t make friends with!

My husband was out on a night out after work today so I had to go and have a look for a dog with my son after I’d picked him up from nursery. I was loosing hope when I spotted a very cute little dog called Lola. Lola was with her human mummy Julie and her grand kids, they love her so much!

I’m mega pleased that we’re getting more light in the evening now! I only had 20 minutes for my lunch today so I couldn’t go out and look for a dog so I went on the hunt after work.

I was going to try and get a picture of all 3 of them but then I realized that would be way too hard so I took a picture of very cute Bella!

I went for a walk at lunchtime and didn’t see any dogs so I went out for a little walk around 5pm in the hope’s of spotting one but again nothing. I had to wait until after work. I walked home from the train station, I was nearly home and it was 8pm and I still hadn’t spotted a dog! I was concerned it wasn’t going to happen but then I spotted a cute little dog approaching on the other side of the road, I was so pleased!

Just as I walked outside of the shop I noticed a lady getting in to a car with a little dog in it so I went over to say hello! I met Missy a very cute Jackadoodle!

It was pretty hard get a picture of gorgeous Tia as she didn’t want to stop playing fetch, she was barking ‘hurry up with this photo, I want to play’!
