Year of the dog Day 90

I’ve completed month number 3! I’ve just got 3 quarters of the year left to do!

The weather has been horrible again today! I didn’t spot any dogs at dinner time but I did near my work when I left but I had to dash for a train! The train was slower than usual so I didn’t have time to look for a dog before I picked up Ethan from nursery so I had to wait for my husband to get back from work; the weather was way too bad to take Ethan on a dog hunt! As soon as I could I headed out. I walked for around 30 minutes without much luck; I was loosing hope when I turned a corner and spotted lovely Bobby a very cute Yorkshire terrier. I was very relieved!

Year of the Dog Day 89

I spotted a dog when I went out at lunchtime but it was tied up outside a shop and I didn’t have time to wait for the owner to come back so I missed out! It was pouring down when I got back to Bolton after work. I had to go and pick up Ethan from my parents house so I decided I’d pop round to see one of my parents neighbours as she’s got a lovely dog! Oscar was very excited to have a visitor, I gave him lots of fuss! You wouldn’t think that Oscar is as old as he is, he’s so active! Oscar only has one eye as he had to have the other one removed, bless him! Oscar is a rescue dog from Manchester dogs home.

Year of the Dog Day 88

The weather has been terrible again today! I spotted a break in the rain and so went for a little dog hunt! I didn’t have to walk far when I spotted a lovely looking dog. Daisy was very friendly but I’m told she can be a little timid with some people. Daisy is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs home and her owner thinks she might have been mistreated before she was rescued, hence why she’s a bit timid. I don’t know how people can mistreat animals, it’s criminal!

The weather is really horrible today, it’s poured down for most of the day! We went for a little drive when I spotted a very nice dog so we parked up and I ran over to say hello, luckily there was a break in the rain! I think that Dylan is the first Bedlington Terrier that I’ve ever met, he’s lovely! He was really friendly and lent in to me to have a good stoke. He especially likes being stroked on his lower back!

I was off again today doing DIY in the house, I’m very tired now! I didn’t get chance to look for a dog until later so I popped to the park on the way to pick up Ethan from nursery. I soon as I parked up I spotted a very happy Chocolate Labrador! Millie was very excited and seemed very pleased to see me! She’s 14 years old but you wouldn’t think it if you saw how fast her tail wags! Millie’s current owner took her in when she was 3 years old, her previous owner had other pets and found Millie too boisterous!

I walked a bit further and then noticed a very happy Springer Spaniel so I went over to say hello. Max was very excited, it was pretty hard to get him to sit still!

After lots of fun on the slide and the swings we went for a little walk on a dog hunt and it didn’t take us long to spot Jack. Jack was very excited by everything, he was very happy when he spotted a cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Yorkshire Terrier! It took a while to get Jack to keep still as he was soooo excited. I managed to get this shot with bribery of a treat!

My son Ethan just said the cutest thing! He was upstairs with his Dad for bath time and asked where mummy was? His dad replied “she’s downstairs doing her dog blog”. Ethan said “I’m going to do a dog blog; I’m going to take pictures of dinosaurs!”

I didn’t get chance to look for a dog at lunchtime today so I planned to have a walk around the block when I got to nursery. I was lucky and as soon as I parked up I spotted a lovely Westie and so I went over to say hello. Willow was very excited, she didn’t keep still bless her; I was pretty lucky to get a good picture!

I went out at lunchtime but it was a bit miserable and I didn’t spot any dogs.

I popped to the park after work and I saw Bella from day 72, she was very happy chasing her ball! I walked a bit further on and spotted a very handsome Border Collie called Buddy. He’s such a friendly boy and was very excited! He loves running around and  chasing his ball and would literally carry on until he couldn’t stand anymore if they let him! Buddy has his own Facebook page. Buddy lives with two other dog friends!

I’ve been working today so I went for a little walk at lunchtime in search of dog. I didn’t have to walk for very long when I spotted a very cute Chihuahua wearing a very fashionable jacket, he won’t leave the house without his coat on! Casper was very friendly and had lots of personality! Casper’s current owners haven’t had him for long, his previous owners were Spanish so he’s in the process of learning English!

I had to walk to the other side of town for a meeting today so I was hopeful that I would see a dog but unfortunately I didn’t spot any!

I went for a walk around the  block when I arrived at Ethan’s nursery but again nothing! I decided to pop to the park with Ethan and have a look. Usually when I’ve had Ethan with me he’s been in his pram or trike or I’ve had someone else with me so I was a bit worried that he might run off as I’m trying to get a picture but he was a really good boy!

I met very handsome Rocky! He’s such a well behaved boy, he sat whilst I took his picture and I managed to get a shot of him shaking his paw! Rocky was rescued by his current owner. His previous owner died and he was left in the back garden on his own without food for over 24 hours. His current owner heard about his plight and rescued him; they’re best friends now!

Year of the Dog Day 71

I worked late tonight so I made sure I went out at lunchtime for a walk but I didn’t spot any dogs. I took a break in the afternoon and went for little walk around the block but I still didn’t spot any! I didn’t get back to Bolton until 8pm, it was dark and raining, booooo! I’ve got to be honest, I felt a little disheartened on my way home! I got in the car and drove to the shop where I’ve spotted many dogs before. Just as I pulled in I saw a very cute Yorkshire Terrier so I went over to say hello, I’m a happy girl again! Benji was very friendly and very excited; so excited that he couldn’t keep still! I only  managed to get one picture in focus. It’s not my best picture but I think you can still see how cute he is!
