Year of the Dog Day 351

I went for a little walk at lunchtime today. I went to St. Anne’s square again but I didn’t spot any dogs so I decided to pop into a shop; I was very restrained and didn’t buy anything! I walked back through St Anne’s square and spotted a very cute little dog that was already getting fussed by a passer by! Rusty is a very cute and friendly boy, he’s very calm and loves getting fussed. He really loves his human mummy and doesn’t like to be apart from her, fortunately it doesn’t happen too often!

Year of the Dog Day 350

I went for a walk to the bottom of my parents street this afternoon and I spotted Fudge and her human from Day 189. Fudge’s human is a dog walker so she was also with Maddie from Day 301 and another very cute Jack Russell called Holly with her. They were also with another dog, a handsome Springer Spaniel called Dexter so I decided to make Holly and Dexter my dogs of he day!

Holly is a rescue dog from Bolton Destitute Animal Shelter, she’s only been with her current humans for 4 months! Holly lives with a Dachshund called Winston who’s her partner in crime!  Holly’s humans were told that she was 2-3 years old but they think she might be much younger. Holly is a little nervous around new dogs but she getting much more confident every day.

Dexter is a very happy dog; he’s very active like a typical Springer Spaniel! He was having a great time playing with Maddie, so cute! It was quite difficult to get a picture of Dexter as he doesn’t keep still, I did get to give him a little stroke though!

I went out at lunchtime today but I didn’t see any dogs about, just loads of people! When I got to Ethan’s nursery I had a quick walk around the block but again no dogs so I had to wait for Tim to get back from work. I headed out into the damp dark night! I didn’t get far when I spotted a dog on the other side of the road so I ran over to say hello but as I got closer I realised it was handsome Buddy from Day 317! I told Buddy’s human that I was on the look out for a dog and she mentioned that her friend lived close by who has a Dogue De Bordeaux so we headed round to say hello!

Izzy is amazing, what a happy, friendly girl! It’s no secret, I love Dogue De Bordeaux’s, all the ones I’ve every met have had such lovely personalities, so smiley, excited and friendly!

I had the day off today so me and Ethan popped to the park this morning to look for a dog. We spotted a very cute and excited Jack Russell so we went over to say hello! As we were talking to Jackson his doggy friend Jake also came to say hello so I decided to make them both my dogs of the day. Between Jackson and Jake’s humans they have 11 dogs! Jackson lives with 5 other dogs and Jake lives with 4; they’re all rescue dogs! Both of the dogs humans work at a vets and both have taken some of the homeless dogs that have brought in, what good people.

Jackson was brought into the vets after he had been ran over. His previous owner was an elderly lady and she couldn’t cope with him after his accident so his current human took him home!

I went for a walk around Manchester at lunchtime today but although it was really busy there weren’t any dogs about! I was meeting a couple of friends to go around the Christmas market this evening so after work I headed out around Manchester looking for a dog. Again it was really busy out but I couldn’t spot any dogs! I decided to walk to the Northern Quarter to see if I could spot any dogs there! I popped into a shop and asked one of the staff if he knew of any shops which had a dog; he did and he told me to go around the corner to James Darby Designs.

I headed round the corner to the shop and I was very happy when I spotted a Boxer Dog in the window! Trevor gave me a very warm welcome when I went inside. I was really pleased that James agreed to let me take Trevor’s photo, he’s a lovely doggy. Trevor has a big personality, he’s full of pizazz, I think he’s probably always very excited and smiley!

I went for a walk at lunchtime today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs! It’s dark now by the time I leave work so I decided to message my friend Sabrina to see if I could go round to her house and take a picture of her dog, so I popped round this evening. Amber is a really beautiful Labradoodle but she is very nervous of new people so she wasn’t keen on having her picture taken. Fortunately as Sabrina thought it might be difficult to get a picture of Amber she had already enlisted her dad (who happens to be my former maths teacher) to come round with his very handsome Red Setter!

Duke is a very friendly boy, I don’t think he stops smiling! Duke is the first Red Setter that I’ve had on the blog so I was very happy to meet him. Duke is a rescue dog from Irish Setter Rescue; he was 9 months old when he came to live with his humans. Duke has a sensitive stomach which is why they think he ended up in a rescue centre.
