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!

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.

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!

I went for a walk around Jumbles reservoir today with my little boy and a friend and I was pretty sure I’d see loads of dogs; I did! Todays dog is very lovely Rowdy, what a very friendly and excited dog, I don’t think I’ve seen a dog’s tail wag so much!

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!
