Year of the Dog Day 273

I went to my parents house this afternoon so myself, my dad and Ethan decided to go for a walk. We only got to the end of the street when we bumped into Mia from Day 105, such a lovely girl! I then spotted a very handsome Dalmatian so I went over to meet him. Dexter is very friendly boy and he really liked Ethan; he loves kids and has a human brother! Dexter is the first Dalmatian I’ve had on my blog so I was really pleased to meet him! I’m not very familiar with the breed but his human mummy was telling me what a loving and affectionate breed they are. Dexter loves to have cuddles and giving kisses; I got a kiss off him!

I popped to the park this afternoon on way to pick up Ethan from nursery. Despite the weather being beautiful it was pretty quiet in the park but then I spotted a Golden Labrador in the field. Ben is a lovely, friendly boy, he walked round me about 5 times when I first went over, making sure I was giving him lots of strokes! It was quite difficult to get a photo of Ben at first as he kept coming up to me for more strokes! Ben was enjoying playing with his golf ball whilst I was with him!

I’m got the week off work this week; I’m very pleased! Today I decided to go and visit my mum and dad’s friends Alan and Pauline to see their lovely dogs and make them my dogs of the day! Max and Molly are a lovely pair, so cute! They were both very excited when we arrived, it took them quite a while to calm down! Molly has a had a litter of puppies and one of her puppies Joey was also there visiting today. Ethan had a great time playing with the dogs and he was laughing his head off when Max stared licking his belly! Max is a very affectionate boy, he’s a real softy!

I’m working today and I actually managed to get ready in good time (I’m normally really slow on a Sunday) so I had enough time to pop to the park before work! As soon as I arrived I spotted a couple walking 2 very cute dogs! Amber and Scamp are very friendly, I gave them both a good stroke! They are both rescue dogs Amber is from Leigh Cats and Dogs Home and Scamp was found tied up outside a golf course. Fortunately he was taken to his current humans sons vets and that’s how he came to live with them. I know I’ve said this before but I really don’t understand why people abandon dogs, if they really don’t want them why don’t they take them to a rescue centre? Amber and Scamp get on well together but Scamp has little dog syndrome and barks at all other dogs!

I went for a walk at lunchtime today and almost straight away I spotted what I thought was a handsome German Shepherd. It turns out that Archie is actually a German Shepherd and Akita cross. I couldn’t see the Akita at first but there were certain facial expressions that he would do where you could see some Akita! Archie is a lovely boy, but he can be a little timid, he doesn’t like load noises. A few people stopped to stoke Archie whilst I was with him because he’s so nice!

Year of the Dog Day 268

I didn’t spot any dogs in Manchester at lunchtime today so I had to wait for Tim to get back home from work before I could go on a dog search. Tim got back a bit later than usual, I was a bit worried that it was getting dark; I’ve not been looking forward to the darker nights! As soon as he got back I headed to the park and when I got there I spotted a man with two gorgeous Cavalier Spaniels. Willow and bailey are both lovely girls! I decided to make Willow my dog of the day, I’m hoping that I’ll see Bailey again before the year is out! Willow is such a friendly girl, she loves saying hello to people and having a fuss, I gave her loads of strokes! Willow and Bailey get on well with each other but Bailey was a little put out when Willow moved in! Willow bugs Bailey a little though, when they play chase with the ball Willow tugs on Baileys ears!

I’ve worked a really long day today! I didn’t get out of work until 9.30! I knew it would be a late one so I wanted to make sure I found a dog early on; unfortunately I had no luck at lunchtime. I headed out again at 5pm and my colleague spotted a dog across the road so I ran after them. I was very relieved to meet lovely Bella! Bella is a shy girl but I did manage to give her a little stroke, her humans said I was honoured! Bella goes with her humans everywhere, they only go on holiday to places that take dogs! Bella has a special dog car seat, how cool is that!

It was a bit rainy this afternoon so I waited until it was just drizzling  a little bit and myself, Ethan, my mum and my dad went for a walk. It was pretty quiet about but eventually I spotted a very handsome Chocolate Labrador called Rolo. Rolo is a very friendly boy, myself and Ethan got to give him a fuss!

Year of the Dog Day 265

I had to wait for Tim to get home tonight before I could go in search for a dog, so as soon as he got back I headed to the park. I could see some dogs in the distance so I ran (it was really more of a slow jog) to catch them up! When I got closer to the group of 4 dogs I realised that one of the dogs was gorgeous Mika from day 74. Her dog brother Mason wasn’t with her today as he’s hurt his paw, I hope he feels better soon. Two of the dogs in the group today were gorgeous French Bulldogs and it turns out they also live with Mika and Mason; 4 brilliant dogs in one house, I’m well jealous! Mika is like the mummy bear and looks after them all! I decided to make beautiful Lexi my dog of the day. Lexi is Norman the other French Bulldogs mummy, it’s nice that Lexi gets to live with her lovely boy! Hopefully I’ll see Norman again so that he can be my Dog of the Day. Lexi is a really friendly girl, she never stops smiling and I got to give her lots of strokes! Lexi and Norman are going to feature in the French Bulldog Rescue GB 2016 Calendar.

Year of the Dog Day 264

I only took a short lunch in work today so I had to wait until I got back to Bolton to look for a dog. I parked up at my parents house and went in search for a dog. To be honest I was pretty tired tonight and was a little disheartened when there didn’t seem to be any dogs about, but then I spotted a man walking 4 really happy dogs! I decided to take a picture of Maddie as her human thought she might be the easiest to keep still, they are all very excited dogs! Despite being 10 years old Maddie is really active, she hardly keeps still! It was pretty difficult to get a picture of her but fortunately I did manage to get one! Maddie is a rescue dog, she was rescued from a rescue home in Leigh.

We went for a day trip to Hardcastle Crags in Hebden Bridge today. It’s really beautiful there, what a gorgeous setting for the mill. There were lots of dogs about and I bumped into a beautiful French Bulldog on the bridge. Lola was a day trip out with Dennis a very handsome Border Collie so I decided to make them both my dogs of the day. I didn’t manage to get a picture of the two of them together though! Today was the first time that Lola and Dennis have met, they were getting on pretty well. I managed to give them both lots of strokes, they’re both very friendly!

Lola was with her humans daughter and she told me that her parents treat her a bit like a princess, Princess Lola! She gets to eat the best food and she gets fed at the same time on the dot every day! Lola even gets to go on holiday to France every year!

Dennis is a very obedient boy, they never need to put him on a lead! Dennis lives on a farm and is friends with some of the cows and horses. Dennis comes from a sheep herding family but hasn’t actually done it himself, he displays some sheep herding characteristics though. To get Dennis to stay still for a photo his human daddy held up a stick, he was very focussed on it!

I gave my friend a lift home from the train station today and just I was parked up I spotted a man walking two lovely dogs.

I’m working a late night again today so I really had to make sure that I found a dog in the daytime, it would be way too late by the time I would get back to Bolton! I was on my way to the train station when I spotted a lovely Westie, I was really pleased; I didn’t imagine that I would spot a dog in that spot at that time of day! I even managed to catch my normal train as well!
Tammy is a lovely girl, she’s very cute but she’s also very shy. Tammy unfortunately has an eye condition which means she can’t see properly! Her human mummy has to bathe her eyes and put eye drops in daily, poor Tammy.

I went for a little walk to the park with Ethan this evening and as soon as I got there I spotted a puppy Bulldog, what a find! It’s fair to say I was pretty chuffed! Winston is a really lovely friendly dog, I gave him lots of strokes and so did Ethan. Winston is such a cutie that everyone wants to stop and stroke him, he had a number of admirers whilst I was with him! Winston originally had a previous owner but they had a Pug which didn’t get on with him so he was returned to the breeder and then his current human took him home! Winston’s human was going to go on another holiday this year but decided to buy Winston instead; he’s definitely better than a holiday! Winston’s human mummy is trying to teach him not to beg for food but she has discovered that her neighbour has been giving him food over the fence!

Myself and a colleague had some time to kill this morning whilst we were waiting for the V&A to open so we popped to a little café; I was really chuffed when I saw a gorgeous dog outside! I gave Luna a good stroke, she was very happy! She kept chewing her lead, she always likes to have something in her mouth! At first I thought she might be a Boxer Dog cross but it turns out that she is a Victorian Bulldog, I didn’t know that there was such a breed! Victorian Bulldogs are similar to Bulldogs but they are slightly taller and tend to have less breathing problems; they are similar to Bulldogs in temperament though! When Luna was a puppy they discovered that she is completely deaf but they are still able to communicate with her by using hand gestures, it’s like doggy sign language! She’s such a happy girl, she definitely doesn’t let being deaf hold her back!

I’ve travelled to London today for a trade show, I really wasn’t sure how easy it would be to find a dog! I spotted one when I got to London Euston but they looked in a hurry so I didn’t stop them. When I left the trade show I was discussing with my friend that I’d need to find a park when a lovely little dog walked past, I was very pleased!

Jessie is a beautiful friendly girl, she didn’t stop wagging her tail! She’s a cross between a Jack Russell, Norfolk Terrier and Norwich Terrier, what a great combo.

I went for a walk with Ethan and my parents down today. As soon as I got to the bottom of the street I noticed two lovely dogs, a Black Labrador and a French Bulldog. Because I was too busy looking at the dogs I didn’t realise straight away that I actually know the dogs humans; I went to the same primary school and secondary school as Sarah! I started taking pictures of Beautiful Mia but then her human mummy realised that she’s already been on the blog, she was her human daddy at the time! Mia was dog of the day on Day 105 so today’s dog of the day is handsome Rudy. Rudy is a friendly boy and I got to give him a good stoke. Rudy loves kids and really enjoys playing with his human cousins! Rudy and Mia are best friends, they spend lots of time together and they love playing with each other!

I went to MOSI today with Tim and Ethan. On the way there I spotted a gorgeous dog and it turned out it was Rodney from Day 41; I gave him a little stroke!

I didn’t spot any other dogs in Manchester so I went for a walk to the park when I got home. It was pretty quiet about but then I spotted a lovely dog at the bottom of the hill so I headed down the hill to say hello! Toby is a very friendly and handsome boy! He’d just been for a swim so he was all wet but I still gave him a good stroke! It was difficult to get a photo of Toby as he wouldn’t keep still; he’s an excited boy! Toby is partially sighted. When he was a puppy they discovered that he had a problem with his eyes so he had to go and see a specialist. Toby has cataracts in his both of his eyes, if they get worse he might need to have an operation. Toby lives with his dog brother, a Beagle called Milo. They get on really well and are best friends! Toby is a real mummy’s boy, he follows her everywhere!

Myself and my husband had a day off work today so that we could paint the outside of the house, we’re pretty tired now! I spotted a couple of cute dogs today but at the time I was carrying a big ladder so I couldn’t really stop to say hello! Once we’d finished painting I went for a little walk to the park. I soon as I got there I met a very nice German Shepherd. Mike is a lovely boy, he’s a little shy but he still came over to say hello. He leant into me so that I could give him a good stroke and a cuddle! Mike likes having a fuss made of him, I think he would have let me stoke him all night!
