Year of the Dog Day 253

I’ve met up with some friends tonight after work, it was great to catch up with some of the former IWM North crew! I really wanted to find a dog early on today, I was worried I’d struggle in the evening so I went for a walk when I got to Manchester this morning but no joy! I went out at lunchtime but again no dogs! Fortunately pretty much as soon as I left work this evening I bumped into a beautiful and excited puppy!

Lily is a lovely friendly girl, I think she’s excited to see everyone! Lily was a good girl and sat for her photo, she’s such a cutie. Look at those lovely ears, so gorgeous. Lily likes to chew her lead, she’s even managed to tangle it up!

Beautiful Lily!

Year of the Dog Day 252

I was off work today so I popped round to my parents as usual in the afternoon. I was turning the car round at the bottom of the street when I spotted a chap walking a gorgeous Bernese Mountain Dog, but I didn’t have time to park up and get Ethan out of the car to go after them; gutted! Hopefully I’ll spot them again one day.

When I arrived at my parents house they told me about a lovely puppy Husky that they’d seen the other day, I was pretty jealous! We decided to go for  little walk to the park and on the way I couldn’t believe it when we spotted the puppy Husky, what a result! Ghost is such a cutie and she’s so tiny, she’s only 12 weeks old! She’s a really friendly girl, I got to give her lots of strokes and cuddles. I’m so lucky, lets face it who doesn’t want to hug a puppy! Ghost also played with Ethan who wanted to play chase with her!

I was on my way out of work today when I spotted a very handsome Schnauzer. I only had 10 minutes to get my train but I couldn’t miss getting gorgeous Rufus on my blog; I had to be pretty quick! Rufus is a friendly boy I got to give him some strokes and he had a good conversation with me, he’s a little chatterbox!

Maddie is named after Madera which  her humans told me is the Spanish word for wood because her humans surname is Wood. They have previously had a dog called Ebony Wood and Hollywood!

I went for a walk at lunchtime today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs, so I drove to the park on the way home from work. As soon as I arrived I spotted a very excited Springer Spaniel so I went over to meet him. Oscar is very active, he hardly keeps still! Oscar was a little bit nervous when I first went over; he used to be bold and would go up to anyone but he became really nervous of new people after a trip to the vets! Oscar warmed up to me though and I got to give him lots of fuss and rub his tum! He especially likes having his belly rubbed and lies down on his back as soon as his humans stroke him! Oscar lives with his human brother who’s 16 months old; he loves Oscar to bits, he make him laugh loads!

I went for a little walk at lunchtime and I was mega happy when I bumped into amazing Dolly and Betty, two gorgeous Bull Dogs. Dolly and Betty are super friendly, I gave them lots of fuss! Betty is especially friendly she came sat on my knee and I gave her some big cuddles; she loves hugs! Dolly and Betty are sisters, they are from a litter of 5 but they were best friends with each other. When their humans went to see them they couldn’t separate them so they decided they had to take them both home with them! They’re such a cute pair, I’m glad they got to stay together! Dolly and Betty’s humans own a café called Betty and Dolly’s Sandwich Bar and Tea Room, it’s a dog friendly café so the girls get to go to work with their humans. Lots of dogs go into the café and they take a photo of each one that visits and put it up on the wall, what a great idea! They’ve had Bull Dog parties at the café, I hope I can go to the next one! Dolly and Betty are like a pair of celebrities, loads of people stopped to stroke them and a couple took their photo! It takes a while for them to walk anywhere as they have to stop so often for people to stoke them!

Beautiful Betty and Dolly!

Year of the Dog Day 244

It was pouring down at lunchtime today so I decided not to go out on a dog search until I got back to Bolton. I parked up near nursery and spotted a very lovely looking dog across the road so I went to say hello. Lilly was so excited that she did her excited dog dance where she steps from side to side, so cute. Lilly always does her dance when she’s excited! It reminds of a lovely Black and White Corgi I used to know called Pearl, she also used to dance from side to side when I saw her. The excited dog dance always makes me think of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer makes Lisa play the jug to help him think and he does a side to side dance along to the thinking music!

Lilly is such a happy friendly dog, she’s one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever met! Lilly is a Golden Labrador and Golden Retriever cross. When she was a puppy she looked more like a Labrador but her fur has changed as she’s aged and is now darker and with more curls. Lilly is best friends with a cat called Daz, they love each other loads and are always licking each other.
