Year of the Dog Day 120

I was too lazy to go for a walk a lunchtime so I decided I’d pop to the park after work. When I first pulled into the car park I couldn’t see any dogs about but it didn’t take long before I spotted one!

Eli is a very cute Shih Tzu, he’s very friendly! Eli lives with his human sister who’s 4 years old, they love each very much and she helps to look after Eli! He’s a very laid back dog but they can’t let him off the lead in the park as he’ll just run off!

I popped out at lunchtime today but I didn’t spot any dogs! When I got home I went for a little walk around the block and it didn’t take long before I spotted a very lovely German Shepherd, lovely Sky. Unfortunately Sky has been diagnosed with epilepsy and her fits can be brought on by a number of things including spraying hairspray and perfume! Fortunately Sky fits have been brought under control with medication but she still has fits from time to time. Sky lives with another dog called Arthur who does most of the talking for them!

I went for a little walk at lunchtime but I didn’t spot any dogs! I drove to the park after work and was very excited when I spotted an amazing Dogue De Bordeaux! I’ve been hoping to see one every day since I started my blog, they’re amazing! I still cry every time I watch Turner and Hooch and I’ve seen it about 50 times! It doesn’t rain then it pours! As I was talking to lovely Tank another Dogue De Bordeaux walked past!

She isn’t quite a year old yet! Margo lives with 2 King Charles Cavalier Spaniels. They tend to take them on separate walks as Margo needs to walk much further, I think she tires the other two out!

I’m still not feeling 100% today but I did manage to get out to the park which is a good thing; I’m pretty much out of my in case of emergency dogs! As soon as I got out of the car I spotted a really beautiful German Shepherd so I went over to say hello! Cassie is a lovely friendly girl, I don’t think she stopped smiling! Cassie was looking forward to playing in the park with her German Shepherd friend that she meets up with!

Unfortunately I still haven’t felt 100% again today so I had another day at home! Fortunately my lovely kind neighbour Sue brought her very handsome dog Dylan round to see me! Dylan lives with beautiful Lady from Day 1 and handsome Cassius from Day 47. Ethan was very excited that Dylan came round! Dylan is a really lovely dog, very handsome, friendly and  calm, he’s got a very nice temperament! Dylan originally lived with another family but one of the children developed bad asthma and so they had to re-home him; that’s when he came to live with Sue and Dave.

Unfortunately they received some very sad news a few weeks ago. Dylan has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, he possibly only has a few months to live. Dylan is such a beautiful animal. My thoughts go out to his family.

I’ve not been very well today so I couldn’t go to work. I been trying hard not to get ill as obviously I can’t really go looking for dogs when I’m ill! Fortunately I have an excellent friends Jen and Drew who have an extremely handsome dog called Alfie so I text them and asked if they would mind popping round; Jen said of course! What a very good friend Jen is, I’m very lucky! Alfie was very excited to pop round and made a real fuss of me, Jen thinks that he could sense that I’m ill!

Alfie starting his life as a working dog on a farm but the farmer said that he was “bloody useless” and didn’t manage to catch anything! For that reason Alfie got the sack and was given to Drew and Jen. Alfie is such a friendly boy and lots of fun!

I went for a walk at lunchtime but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs!

When I got home myself, my husband and Ethan went for a walk to the park. We spotted two lovely King Charles Spaniels so we went to say hello! Ethan was very keen on them and liked them even more when he found out that they’re called Charlie and Lola! They are both rescue dogs. They’re previous owner didn’t know how to look after them properly and fed them on Pizza! They were never taken for walks and so unsurprisingly Charlie got quite overweight! Fortunately they were both rehomed together into a very loving new home and both dogs are now doing really well! As I’m pretty sure that I’m going to bump into the lovely Charlie and Lola again I decided to take just one of their pictures; today is Charlie’s turn!

One of the dogs was bouncing along the path, he looked very happy and I was pretty sure he was a puppy! I was right, Olly is just 7 months old and very excited! He’s very cute!

I was going out straight from work today so I really hoped that I’d see a dog in the day time. As it happened my luck was in! I was at the reception desk at work when I saw a man tie his dog up outside; my colleague asked me if they are delivering dogs to work for me now, I wish! I asked the owner if I could take his lovely dogs photo and he said yes! Alfie is very nice, such a friendly boy, I got to give him a good stroke! He’s so good that he doesn’t even mind if his ears get pulled by a toddler! Alfie is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs Home.

I didn’t get chance to look for a dog in the day so I planned to pop to the park when I got back to Bolton, but it turned out that I bumped into a beautiful dog on the way to my car! I met really lovely Lassie, what a friendly dog, we got to have a hug! Lassie human mummy really wanted to get a dog but her dad wasn’t so sure so they named her Lassie after his boyhood dog to talk him round; good thinking! Lassie is a rescue dog from the Destitute Animal Shelter in Bolton http://www.animalshelter.org.uk/. She was rescued at 6 mouths old. Lassie lives with another dog called Dylan who’s 14 years old. They get on very well but she’s a bit nervous around other dogs, her human mummy thinks that something possibly happened to her before she was rescued.

Lassie’s human mum happens to be an animal photographer so I’ve asked her to give me some tips! You can check out her photos at https://www.facebook.com/jaderileyphotographyuk?fref=nf

We then spotted a very beautiful and friendly Black Labrador called Mia. I think that Mia is one of the friendliest dogs I’ve ever met! She came up to all of us to say hello with a big smile on her face; she’s a gorgeous dog! Mia is best friends with a French Bulldog called Rudy. They hang out with each other most nights and they both sulk if they don’t see each other, how cute! Mia is also friends with the lovely Bentley from day 99!

Year of the Dog Day 101

We all popped to the shop this morning and as soon as we walked in I spotted some people with 2 guide dogs who were there to collect money for the Guide Dog Association http://www.guidedogs.org.uk/.

Inca is a working Guide Dog and has been with his human daddy for 3 years. Inca is pretty tall and his dad was telling me that they breed Guide Dogs to different sizes to match the height of their owners. They also take other things into consideration like how active the person is and the kind of activities they regularly do. It’s so obvious but I hadn’t thought about it before that they would do that, it makes so much sense! Inca was very friendly and was happy for everyone to say hello! He lent into me for a little cuddle!

Rinty is a retired Guide Dog. His previous owner developed problems with his arms and so couldn’t walk with him anymore. They did try to re-train Rinty but they found that he had developed a fear of heavy traffic and so he had to retire. His current human daddy has always had dogs and has been a puppy walker for 13 different Guide Dog puppies. I asked him it was really hard giving them up; I don’t know if I could do it! He said that it is pretty hard but you have to remind yourself that they’ll only be with you for a year and that there going on to do an amazing job! He said that it’s all worthwhile when you receive a letter from there new owner thanking you for the work you’ve done! Rinty also lives with a former Guide Dog trainee that didn’t make it!

I know I’ve said it before but I think that Guide Dogs are so amazing, what caring, gentle, clever dogs they are!
