Year of the Dog Day 151

I went out for lunch today and just as I finished eating I noticed a dog walking past. I ran out of the café in hot pursuit but as I got closer I realised that it was Angus from day 110! After I finished work I popped to the park but the only dog about was Millie from day 86! I gave her a big stoke, she’s so friendly! There were no other dogs about so I got back in the car to drive to another park but then I spotted a lady walking a big dog to the park so I parked up and went after them. I met very handsome Bruno a Bull Mastiff and Great Dane Cross. Bruno is a very smiley boy! Bruno is a rescue dog from Rochdale.

I was working today so I went out for a little walk at lunchtime. Pretty much as soon as I left work I spotted a very cute dog so I went over to say hello! Mac is a Lhasa Apso; I’m not sure I’ve ever met one before! Mac is an international traveller! He has a doggy passport so that he can live in Portugal for 4 months of the year; very nice! He enjoys sitting on the marina watching the world go by! Mac has featured in a blog before; his groomer in Portugal put a picture of him on her blog. He’s a friendly boy!

I went out for lunch today with my friend and spotted a dog on our way out of M&S. I went over to say hello to the chap with the dog and we both realised that we had met each other before! He works for the company that has ‘bring your dog to work day’ every Friday! Meg from day 65 wasn’t with him today, instead he was taking Romeo a very handsome Cocker Spaniel for a walk. Romeo belongs to the CEO of the company but he often stays with his human friend when his human dad is away! Romeo is a very friendly boy, very cute! I’m told that there were 5 dogs in the office that day, so amazing! I’m not sure I’d get much work done if there were dogs in work though, I’d be far too distracted! Over the year I might manage to take a picture of all the office dogs!

I’m really lucky, I should have been working today but lovely Mitch who I work with swopped with me so that I could go to a dog show; thanks Mitch! I went to a dog show at Turton Tower, it was great, so many dogs in one place, living the dream! There were loads of dogs, I saw 3 Dogue De Bordeaux’s, a puppy Saint Bernard (words cannot describe how cute), an Old English Sheep Dog, a Flat Coated Retriever called Milo, 2 gorgeous French Bulldogs and many more; they were all amazing! In case you can’t tell it’s been a very exciting afternoon!

I spotted a gorgeous Boston Terrier; I absolutely adore Boston Terriers so I went over to say hello! Lenny is full of pizzazz, so much personality! Lenny is only small but he can jump really high, his human sisters were telling me all about his jumping escapades! The family have had to stop hanging up their coats downstairs because Lenny jumps up and chews the end of the zips; he’s destroyed a few coats that way! Lenny is a really friendly boy and wanted to say hello to all of the dogs that walked past!

I had to pop to Afflecks Palace today for work so I was pretty hopeful that I’d spot a dog in the Northern Quarter! I was in luck and on my way back to work I spotted and extremely handsome White German Shepherd called Ambrose. To be honest I didn’t know you could get white German Shepherds before! Interestingly White German Shepherds were disqualified from the German Shepherd Dog club in 1933 when the Nazis came to power! Ambrose is a very chatty and friendly boy, he was talking to us the whole time! Ambrose lives with two cats but the don’t always get on that well! Ambrose’s human grandparents have a massive Saint Bernard; I was shown a picture of the two together and believe it or not Ambrose looked small next him!

He nudges them around and one of them cuddles up to him at night; the other tortoise bites him from time to time though!

Poppy lives on the same street as my parents so I’ve met her before; she’s a really friendly and happy girl! She made sure she said hello to all of the family. She was really good with Ethan and let him tickle her! Poppy has two human sisters and they all love each other very much! She recently entered a dog show contest for the dog with the waggiest tail but she kept sitting down when the judges came to meet her! Her human sister was very upset that she didn’t win!

I didn’t get a lot of time to look for a dog during lunch today so I planned to go when my husband got back from work. Luckily as I approached Ethan’s nursery I spotted a man walking 3 very cute Bichon Frise’s! They all looked so cute together that I decided that I’d have to have 3 dogs of the day! There human dad clearly thinks the world of his three lovely dogs and he was happy to tell me all about them! All 3 dogs had previous owners. Charlie and Lucy’s original owners had babies and found that they then didn’t have the time to look after them a so the went to live with their current humans! Jack only lived with his previous owner for a matter of weeks but had to move due to his new human sister having a bad allergic reaction to him; they were all gutted!

I didn’t get chance to go out at lunchtime today so I planned to go to the park after work. As soon as I stepped out of the train station in Bolton it started raining; gutted! Fortunately as soon as I got to the park the rain had passed!

The first dog I saw was Cassie from day 115, she’s so beautiful! I then spotted a very cute and excited looking dog in the distance so I went in hot pursuit! I met very cute Bouncer.

I went round to my parents house today along with my siblings, nieces and nephew’s. We all decided to go for a walk to the park. I spotted a few dogs on the way but I had Ethan on my shoulders at the time so I thought I’d wait for the way home to spot a dog! On the way home I got all the way back to my parents street before I spotted a dog! My dog of the day is really cute King a Pomeranian and Yorkshire Terrier cross; what a great combo! He looks a bit like a miniature German Shepherd! Even though King is small, he can jump really far!

Is was my friends son Evan’s first birthday today so we went for a picnic in the park. It didn’t take long before I spotted a beautiful Border Collie that was playing football with her humans. I waited until they walked past and went over to say hello! Millie is a lovely friendly girl and although she’s 12 years old she still acts like a puppy! Millie likes to keep a safe distance between herself and her human siblings but she always makes sure she keeps a watchful eye on them; she’s very protective of them!

I’m working late tonight so I’m starting work later today which meant I could go and look for a dog this morning. I dropped Ethan off at nursery and went to the park. I soon as I got out of the car I spotted a massive dog up on the field so I went over to say hello! Chewy (named after Chewbacca) is another Briard, I can’t believe I’ve seen two in one week! Chewy is a very friendly boy, he came running over to say hello! He was very excited, he’s got lots of personality! Chewy loves playing with other dogs but he doesn’t realise how big he is so some dogs get a bit intimidated when he bounds over to say hello! He has dog pals that he see’s most days. He’s best friends with a Dalmatian, a Westie that climbs on him and a French Bulldog; I’d love to see them all together! Chewy’s mum has had a number of dogs but Chewy is the first Briard that she’s had; she wanted a big hairy dog!

I went for a walk at lunchtime today and spotted a lovely looking dog. I was really pleased that I’d found one early in the day and then I was even more pleased when I got closer and realised that he was a Rhodesian Ridgeback; chuffed to bits! Gamba is an extremely handsome dog and lots of passer byes obviously agreed as loads of people stopped to stoke him! Gamba means handsome warrior and he definitely is!

I had the day off today but spent most of the morning rushing round so I decided I’d go and look for a dog on the afternoon with Ethan and my parents. Ethan decided which direction we’d walk in and so we went a different route than usual! We walked to the next street and we spotted a beautiful Cocker Spaniel. Molly is an old girl, she’s 12 years old! She’s very lovely and was very patient to let Ethan stroke her! Molly is the 5th Cocker Spaniel that her human parents have had; I remember some of them from when I was younger! Molly lived with a previous owner for 6 years but they couldn’t look after her anymore so she moved in to her current home.
