Year of the Dog Day 39

I was working today and didn’t spot any dogs on the way in so I went for a walk at lunch time. I went to a park where I’ve had success before and spotted Frenchie Maurice carrying a big stick! I went over to say hello and then carried on with my search; I didn’t spot any other dogs during my lunch hour!

I went for a little walk when I got home, another night shot I’m afraid, I can’t wait for the days to get longer again! I spotted a very cute dog and went over to say hello! Poppy is a Border Terrier and she’s 15 years old; you wouldn’t think it though, she’s so active! Poppy would hardly keep still for a photo and her owner told that me she’ll walk for miles despite her advanced age!

Year of the Dog Day 38

I’ve often hoped that I would see a dog at the train station and today that happened! I ran past my friend that I happened to bump into saying “there’s a dog over there”. I did manage to give her a quick hug though but there was no time to chat, I had a dog to meet! I had enough time before the train came to meet very lovely Rocky, he’s getting an old boy! He was really gentle and very friendly, we had a little hug! He was also very well-behaved on the train! Rocky is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs home.

Year of the Dog Day 36

Back to work for me today. I didn’t have time to go and look for a dog at lunchtime so I knew I’d have to go for a walk in the dark! I headed to the local shop which is proving to be a very good dog hot spot! I spotted a really smiley looking big dog and so went to say hello! Roxie was very pretty, she didn’t stop smiling the whole time! She wags her tail quite a lot too; there’s no more ornaments in her house now as they’ve all been wagged off the shelves!

Year of the Dog Day 34

I had another day going to a trade show at the NEC and I was really hoping that I would be lucky and see Kilo’s sniffer dog friend that his owner had told me about yesterday. I was really lucky and I bumped into Kilo’s buddy almost as soon as I arrived! Today’s sniffer dog is the very handsome Freddy. He was very excited and was really looking forward to go and sniff out some explosives!

Year of the Dog Day 33

I’ve spent the day in Birmingham today. I don’t know Birmingham that well so I thought I might find it quite difficult to find a dog! I was in the Birmingham NEC for about 1 hour when I turned round and discovered that I was stood next to a very lovely sniffer dog, I couldn’t believe my luck! I was chuffed when his owner agreed to let me take a picture, I didn’t think they would be allowed to!
