Year of the Dog Day 355

I went out at lunchtime today but there were no dogs to be seen! It was really dark by the time I got back to Bolton and it seemed really quiet about so I decided to ask my dad to come with me and knock on one of his neighbours doors to see if I could take a picture of one of their dogs! Ozzy is little boisterous so we decided we would be better off taking a picture of Iggy. Iggy is very cute, but he’s also very shy, I did get to give him a little stroke though! Unfortunately I didn’t get the best photo, it definitely doesn’t do justice to how cute Iggy is!

Year of the Dog Day 349

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 gave Izzy lots of fuss, she especially likes having behind her ears stroked! She lent into me so I could give her a good stroke and a cuddle and she didn’t stop smiling the whole time! Izzy is best friends with Buddy, they love each other so much and play all the time. Buddy made sure he gave Izzy plenty of kisses!

I went for a walk at lunchtime today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs. By the time I got back to Bolton it was dark and the weather was horrible! I decided to pop to Pets at Home but unfortunately I didn’t see any dogs. After I picked up Ethan from nursery I decided I would pop to Jolley’s pet shop in the hopes I would spot a dog there; the weather was way too bad to go around traipsing the streets! It seemed pretty quiet when I got there but then I spotted a gorgeous Cocker Spaniel! I’ve me Buddy and his human before in the park but I’d already got my Dog of the Day, I was really pleased to spot them again! Buddy is such a handsome dog, and he’s so friendly; I got to give a him a cuddle and he gave Ethan a good sniff!

She gave me some kisses and I also got a hug off her, what a sweetheart! Louie used to be called Lou Lou but her human dad wasn’t keen on shouting that name out so he started calling her Louie and the name stuck!

I planned to pop to the park before work this morning but I ended up not having time! Fortunately I spotted a gorgeous dog on the way from the car to work so I ran to catch them up!  I met happy and excited William. He’s meant to be a Cocker Spaniel but his human thinks he might also have some Red Setter in him; I can definitely see that with his colour and his body and face seem slightly longer than a Cocker Spaniel. William is a very friendly boy, I gave him a good stroke!

I went to MOSI today with Tim and Ethan. On the way there I spotted a gorgeous dog and it turned out it was Rodney from Day 41; I gave him a little stroke!

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. When he was a puppy they discovered that he had a problem with his eyes so he had to go and see a specialist. Toby has cataracts in his both of his eyes, if they get worse he might need to have an operation. Toby lives with his dog brother, a Beagle called Milo. They get on really well and are best friends! Toby is a real mummy’s boy, he follows her everywhere!

Even though I had the day off today I didn’t manage to get out and look for a dog until late. I popped to the park and I spotted a very excited Cocker Spaniel chasing a ball in the field so I went over to say hello. Harry is very cute, he’s a ball of energy! At first I though he might be a cross with a King Charles Cavalier as he’s quite small, but he was bought as a Cocker Spaniel, his human daddy also thinks that he might be a cross though! Harry has 2 human brothers, they love him loads! Harry is very active and goes running with his human daddy, they’ll run 10 miles together.

I went to Moss Bank Park today for some dog spotting! It was just starting to rain so I was really pleased that I spotted 2 very excited looking dogs running in the field. Bracken and Piper are both very cute and very active! It was almost impossible to get a picture of Bracken as she would only stay still for a few moments at a time, as soon as I got the camera near her she would jump in the air and run off again! They are both very excited dogs, they both love running around, chasing the ball and jumping in the air! I couldn’t manage getting a picture of the two of them together I’m afraid (Bracken is in the background of Piper’s picture though, along with a giant inflatable gorilla!).

Me and Ethan went for a little stroll around Middlebrook today. As usual we spent quite a lot of time in the toy houses outside the toy shop! I finally persuaded Ethan to leave the house and go to the pet shop. I’d seen a number of dogs go in and out whilst I was waiting for Ethan so I knew I wouldn’t struggle to find a dog! Whilst we were in the shop I saw a very beautiful Cocker Spaniel so  I went to meet her! Pippa is really cute, she’s such a friendly girl, I got a kiss almost straight away!

Romeo belongs to the CEO of the company but he often stays with his human friend when his human dad is away! Romeo is a very friendly boy, very cute! I’m told that there were 5 dogs in the office that day, so amazing! I’m not sure I’d get much work done if there were dogs in work though, I’d be far too distracted! Over the year I might manage to take a picture of all the office dogs!

I had the day off today but spent most of the morning rushing round so I decided I’d go and look for a dog on the afternoon with Ethan and my parents. Ethan decided which direction we’d walk in and so we went a different route than usual! We walked to the next street and we spotted a beautiful Cocker Spaniel. Molly is an old girl, she’s 12 years old! She’s very lovely and was very patient to let Ethan stroke her! Molly is the 5th Cocker Spaniel that her human parents have had; I remember some of them from when I was younger! Molly lived with a previous owner for 6 years but they couldn’t look after her anymore so she moved in to her current home.
