Year of the Dog Day 314

I went out at lunchtime today but I didn’t spot any dogs so I went for a walk round the block near Ethan’s nursery but still no joy! I had to wait for my husband to get back before I could resume my search for a dog. It was dark by the time I headed out, I’m really not a fan of these dark nights! I walked for a little while and then I spotted a gorgeous looking dog across the road so I went over to meet him. Brock is a lovely American Bulldog, I haven’t had one on my blog yet so I pleased to meet him! Brock has a lovely temperament, he’s very chilled out! Brock’s human got him when he was a puppy but he had anther older dog that found him a bit much so he temporally went to live with his friend. Brock moved back in with his human when he was about 1 year old; he’d calmed down by that point and he got on really well with the other older dog.

I’ve had the day off work today so me and Ethan went to meet our friends at Bradley Fold Garden Centre. Whilst we were waiting at the door for them a man walked past walking a mega cute Border Terrier so I went to say hello! Jack is a really friendly boy, I gave him lots of strokes and he’s so cute! Jack used to belong to his current humans nephew along with Jack’s dog brother but he found two dogs too much to handle so Jack moved in with his current human. Jack is 10 years old but you wouldn’t think it!

I decided to pop to the park on the way to work today as I knew I wouldn’t have time at lunchtime. I was pretty lucky as I spotted a couple of dogs straight away so I ran over to say hello! They were both very friendly dogs and I decided to make Timmy my dog of the day. Timmy was very excited, he really likes people and having a fuss, what a cutie! Timmy’s is a cross but his human isn’t sure what breeds he is a cross of, he’s gorgeous though! Timmy lives with two other dogs, they all get on really well.

Year of the Dog Day 311

I’m working this weekend so I decided to go for a little walk at lunchtime in search of a dog. I didn’t have to go very far when I spotted a man walking two dogs so I ran after them to say hello. Ninizu and Spartacus are both very cute but they both don’t like having their photo taken, it was pretty hard to get a decent shot! Ninizu is named after a character in a native American fairy tale. Spartacus is a rescue dog; he was rescued from an abusive home so he can be a little nervous, especially of children.

Year of the Dog Day 310

I went out at lunchtime in search for a dog today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any! I didn’t spot any on the way home either! There was a big firework display on tonight so I didn’t think there would be that many dogs out and about so I decided to ask one of my neighbours if I could make their dog my Dog of the Day. Jackson is a mega friendly dog, he was so excited when me and Ethan went round, I think he licked my face for 5 minutes! Jackson really loves people and he especially loves kids and his human’s grandson. When he comes to stay he has a sleepover with him and sleeps on the top bunk, how cute is that! Jackson had previous owners but they found him too boisterous so his current humans took him in; they thinks he’s the best dog they’ve ever had! Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a great picture today but you can see how friendly Jackson’s face is!

Flossy is a lovely friendly girl, I gave her lots of fuss, she’s a real sweetie! Flossy was on her first trip to town which she was enjoying very much. She also took her first trip on the bus and she had to get herself a £1 ticket! Flossy really loves people, whenever she goes for a walk she gets very excited when she see’s people and runs over to say hello!

I popped to my parents this afternoon and as I was parking up I noticed a nice looking dog down the street and as my husband was with me and Ethan I ran down to say hello. I met beautiful Jess, a German pointer and Border Collie cross. Jess is a friendly girl and she looked into my eyes to say hello! Jess is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs home. She was taken in as a stray so they don’t know much about her back story but she had definitely had some training. Jess came to live with her current humans when she was 18 months old. Jess’s human sister loves her to bits and likes to dress her up; Jess was a pumpkin for Halloween!

Year of the Dog Day 307

I went for a walk at lunchtime today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs! By time I left work is was dark so I knew I wouldn’t get the best quality photo today! On my way from the train station to the car I spotted a lady walking a cute dog across the road so I went over to say hello. Maxwell is a real cutie, I gave him a little stroke! Maxwell is 3 years old but he’s only lived with his current human for 5 months. His previous owners worked 12 hour shifts so Maxwell was on his own quite a lot so he came to live with his current human. Maxwell couldn’t climb up stairs when he first came to live with his current owner as he wasn’t ever allowed up the stairs. It took him a good 3 weeks to settle in to his new home but he’s very happy now!

I can’t believe it’s November, only 2 months to go!

I went round to my parents this afternoon with most of the family. We all decided to go for a walk to the playground so I knew I’d spot a dog on the way! It’s didn’t take long before we bumped into 3 people with 4 dogs so I asked them if one of them could be my dog of the day. We decided to make brother and sister Molly and Eddy my dogs of the day. They are a lovely pair and get on really well, Eddy can be quite protective of his sister! They both wag their tails in unison together, how cute is that! Eddy leaned into my legs so that I could give him a stroke! They’re a friendly pair!
