Year of the Dog Day 78

I had to walk to the other side of town for a meeting today so I was hopeful that I would see a dog but unfortunately I didn’t spot any!

I went for a walk around the  block when I arrived at Ethan’s nursery but again nothing! I decided to pop to the park with Ethan and have a look. Usually when I’ve had Ethan with me he’s been in his pram or trike or I’ve had someone else with me so I was a bit worried that he might run off as I’m trying to get a picture but he was a really good boy!

I met very handsome Rocky! He’s such a well behaved boy, he sat whilst I took his picture and I managed to get a shot of him shaking his paw! Rocky was rescued by his current owner. His previous owner died and he was left in the back garden on his own without food for over 24 hours. His current owner heard about his plight and rescued him; they’re best friends now!

Year of the Dog Day 59

Today I met up with my friends Emma and Tim to meet there beautiful Rough Collie Laila, she’s so lush! It was quite nice knowing that I definitely wouldn’t have a problem finding a dog today! We went for a walk around Whittaker park in Rawtenstall, it was really nice! As soon as we saw Laila she came running up to us to say hello and gave my son Ethan a kiss! She’s really made an impression on Ethan, he keeps asking me where Laila has gone! Laila is a super friendly dog, there wasn’t a dog in the park that she didn’t make friends with!
