Year of the Dog Day 181

I wanted to go out at lunchtime today to find a dog as I had plans tonight, but I didn’t end up having time! I hoped I would have chance as I arrived to nursery but unfortunately my train was cancelled and the next one delayed so I didn’t have time!

Myself and my friends Jen and Rebecca went climbing tonight. We were all had on our dog spotting eyes on the way there but unfortunately didn’t see any! We didn’t leave the climbing centre until 9.30pm so I thought I might struggle to find a dog. Fortunately my friend Rebecca has a dog so we popped round to her house on the way home, thank you Rebecca! This is the first time that I’ve met Tyler, she’s beautiful! She was very excited to see us all, her tail wagged the whole time and she didn’t stop smiling! She’s a very clever girl and can do many tricks, she was also very good posing for her photos!

I’ve now made it to 6 months for my blog, just another 6 to go!

I went to Jodrell Bank today and I hoped I might see a dog there but unfortunately they can’t have dogs in the grounds! On the way home I stopped off at the usual park and spotted a couple getting 3 dogs out of their car so I went over to say hello. I decided to take a photo of just one of the dogs as I hope I might see them all again! Woody was the first of the dogs to come up and say hello so I’ve made him my dog of the day! Woody is a very friendly Yellow Labrador, what a lovely boy! He gets on very well with his 2 dog housemates Tarka who is 17 years old and Molly.

I had a meeting on the other side of Manchester today but I didn’t spot any dogs whilst on my travels! I was going to walk around the block when I got to Ethan’s nursery but it started pouring down so I gave that a miss! Fortunately by the time my husband got back from work it had stopped raining so I didn’t need to get wet! I spotted a dog pretty much as soon as I got to the park. I met very lovely Toby, he was very excited and happy! The humans that were with Toby are looking after him for a week for the lady’s sister in law so they weren’t 100% sure on all of the details! The lady’s grandkids were very excited about looking after him, I think he’s going to get very spoilt this week!

I know I say this all the time but I really do love French Bulldogs! Arnie’s fur is really soft and he still has some excess skin to grow in to, so cute! He’s a really friendly boy, I got to give him lots of strokes! Arnie’s human dad works at Close barbers in Manchester and he gets to come to work with him every day; all of the customers must love him!

Myself, Ethan and my husband took a stroll to the park this afternoon and just as we arrived at the playground I spotted a really cute Long Haired Dachshund tied to the railings. I looked around the park trying to work out who the dogs human might be, I guessed it was a lady who was pushing her grandkids on a swing near by so I went over to say hello; I guessed right! The beautiful Dachshund is called Lottie. She’s a really friendly girl, I got to give her lots of strokes! She loves spending time with people, especially her human mummy’s grandkids. Lottie is also a bit of a chatter box, she had a good long conversation with me! She especially likes talking in the car and when she’s at home she makes a funny noise if she feels she’s not getting enough attention! Lottie once a litter of 5 puppies. They were going to keep one of them but Lottie let the puppy walk all over her and it ate all of her food.

We travelled back home from Weymouth today; we were stuck in traffic for most of the way, it took an age to get home! Fortunately I knew I’d have no trouble finding a dog today as there’s always loads at service stations; someone could do a blog on service station dogs! As soon as we drove into the car park I spotted a French Bulldog, I was very pleased, I think they’re great! Finn is a very handsome and friendly boy, I got to give him lots of strokes! Finn’s humans have previously had Boxer dogs but wanted to go for something smaller and so the chose a French Bulldog! They said when they went to pick him up he looked a bit funny and had a wonky eye! He just sat there and looked at them and they fell in love. He definitely doesn’t have a wonky eye now!

I’m currently on holiday in Dorset and I’m very excited about all of the dogs I’m going to see! I wonder if I’ll see different breeds; is there a North/ South doggy divide?!

I went into Weymouth today and pretty much as soon as I walked into the town centre I spotted a really handsome looking dog. I met gorgeous Derek, what a friendly boy he is! I got to have a little bit of a cuddle with him, he’s very nice! Derek is a Labradoodle. His mum is a Fox Red Labrador which you can see from the lovely colour of his coat and his dad is a Miniature Poodle; I’m not really sure how that worked!

I’ve been travelling today and had hopes that I would spot a nice dog at the service station, I was in luck! I spotted two really cute dogs, a Basset Hound and another dog I didn’t recognise! Although they look completely different in turns out that they are both a type of Basset Hound! Hermione is a Basset Griffon Vendeen. I hadn’t heard of the breed but Hermione’s human daddy informed me that they’re very rare with only a handful of breeders in the country. They both make a really cute duo, I don’t think they stopped wagging their tails! They get lots of attention, everyone wants to stop to stroke them and who can blame people, Basset Hounds are amazing! I genuinely didn’t stop smiling when I was looking through the photos I took of them, they’re both brilliant!
