Year of the Dog Day 305

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!

Year of the Dog Day 303

I left work a bit earlier today so I ended up going to Deansgate station to get my train home. I was hoping that I would spot a dog at the train station and I was really in luck; as soon as I got on the platform I saw a beautiful assistance dog. Crumble was bred by the Guide Dog Assistance and was then trained by Support Dogs in Sheffield. Crumble has been with her human daddy for 18 months, they already clearly love each other! Crumble assists her human to pick things up, open/ close doors, takes off his coat, gets his medication and is trained to bark for help. What a great job Crumble does, dogs really are amazing. Crumble is her human’s second assistance dog, his previous dog was a Springer Spaniel that he had for 14 years.

Beautiful Crumble!

Year of the Dog Day 276

I popped into town today with Tim and Ethan. On the way home in the car I spotted a beautiful trainee Guide Dog so I got Tim to pull over so I could say hello! Bessie is a lovely girl, she has such a gorgeous face! I got to give her lots of fuss and even tickled her belly! Bessie has been with her puppy walker since she was 6 weeks old; she’s now 18 months old and she’s due to start her training any time now! This is the first time that her puppy walkers have looked after a Guide Dog puppy but they’ve had lots of Golden Retrievers in the past.

I really respect the people that look after the Guide Dog puppies, it must be so difficult to say goodbye to them, they obviously have really big hearts! Bessie’s walker is a bit nervous about how she’s feel saying goodbye but she would consider doing it again. Bessie is a very loving dogs, she loves cuddles. Bessie is best friends with another Guide Dog puppy called Warrior, they go for a walk and play together every day!

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!
