I didn’t get chance to look for a dog until I got back to Bolton today. I went for a walk at the bottom of my parents street but it was very quiet about. I had to walk for a good 15 minutes until I spotted a very happy looking dog in the distance. I was very pleased to meet Hewie, he’s a lovely, friendly boy and likes to lean into peoples legs for a cuddle! I got a cuddle and a kiss from him! Before Hewie’s humans got him they did lots of research about what breed to get; they wanted a small dog but with a big personality and they definitely got that in Hewie! Hewie has two human siblings; they’re best buds. On Christmas day Hewie got very excited, more excited than the kids and ripped all of the open his presents in no time! His tennis balls didn’t last for very long!

I went to Moss Bank Park this afternoon with Tim and Ethan. There were plenty of dogs about and then I spotted a really lovely looking Boxer Dog so I went over to say hello. Cleo is a gorgeous girl. She’s getting quite old now but she’s still very active and alert, she’s full of beans! Cleo had some bad news early this year, she was diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately they found out early enough that the vets could operate. Cleo had lots of fuss from people walking past today, she is very lovely though!

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!

I popped to the park on my way to pick up Ethan from nursery today. When I arrived I spotted 3 ladies with 3 very cute dogs so I made my way across the park to meet them. Two of the dogs, a Staffie and a Springer Spaniel are 4 month old puppies, very cute! They were both very excited playing with each other so I decided it would be too difficult to get a photo of one of them so I chose beautiful Molly as my dog of the day. Molly is a lovely friendly girl, I gave her lots of strokes! Molly was out with her humans mum and her dog cousin Marley the Springer Spaniel. They both get on well with each other but Molly can find Marley to be a bit boisterous!

I’ve had a real treat today, a trip to the spa at the Last Drop Village with my mum! I’m extremely relaxed now! On the way back to the car I spotted a man walking two very lovely dogs so I went to meet them. By the time I’d reached them Bertie the Border Collie had already ran off so I decided to make Amber a beautiful Golden Labrador/ Retriever cross my dog of the day. Amber is a lovely girl, she very friendly and was also very relaxed! When Amber was a puppy she was in the Guide Dog training programme but unfortunately she didn’t make it because she didn’t stop ‘spending’ on the lead!

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!

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 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.

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.

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!

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!

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 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.

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!

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!
