Year of the Dog Day 353

I popped out at lunchtime today and as soon as I walked out of the door I spotted a very cute little dog so I went over to say hello. Beauty is  lovely girl, she very calm but also very friendly and happy. I gave her a good fuss, she was very keen to say hello! Beauty sadly lost her dog brother earlier this year, she was very upset after he died but she has now started to come out of herself a bit more. She’s a very sweet dog.

I’m  working today so I planned to pop to the park before I got to work but I didn’t even need to; I spotted two ladies walking lots of dogs just up the road! I went over to say hello and I realised that one of the Ladies is a dog walker who’s lovely dog Meg was my Dog of the Day 17. I decided to take a picture of Charlie the other ladies doggy. Charlie is very cute, he’s a cross between a Rottweiler and a Springer Spaniel, what an interesting combo! He’s a real softy, he jumped up and hugged my hand. Charlie loves having attention and barks if he isn’t getting any! Charlie used to belong to his human’s niece, he came to live with her when he was 18 months old!

I didn’t have to start work until later today so I decided to pop to the park after I dropped Ethan off at nursery. It seemed pretty quiet about but then I spotted two ladies walking 3 cute little dogs so I ran down the hill to meet them. I decided to make lovely Jamie-Lee my dog of the day.

They were both very friendly dogs and I decided to make Timmy my dog of the day. Timmy was very excited, he really likes people and having a fuss, what a cutie!

I popped to my parents this afternoon and as I was parking up I noticed a nice looking dog down the street and as my husband was with me and Ethan I ran down to say hello. I met beautiful Jess, a German pointer and Border Collie cross. Jess is a friendly girl and she looked into my eyes to say hello! Jess is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs home. She was taken in as a stray so they don’t know much about her back story but she had definitely had some training. Jess came to live with her current humans when she was 18 months old. Jess’s human sister loves her to bits and likes to dress her up; Jess was a pumpkin for Halloween!

I was returning home in the car when I spotted a very handsome and massive dog down the street so I got out of the car to day hello! Luther is huge, the pictures really don’t justice to show how big he is! He’s a very lovely boy, I gave him lots of stokes and also got to give him a treat! Luther lives with 3 cats; he gets on really well with two of them but the other one isn’t very keen on him, she took a swipe at him when he was a puppy and he’s never forgotten it! Buddy, one of the cats really likes Luther and will climb up on him and go to sleep next to him. Luther has nearly squashed Buddy a few times though by accidently rolling on him! Luther isn’t very keen on the traffic, when I left him he didn’t want to walk on as he was heading towards the main road so he sat firm! His human did  eventually manage to get Luther to walk on!

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! Amber gets on well with her dog housemate Bertie although they are quite different temperament; Bertie doesn’t stop!

I’m working today and I actually managed to get ready in good time (I’m normally really slow on a Sunday) so I had enough time to pop to the park before work! As soon as I arrived I spotted a couple walking 2 very cute dogs! Amber and Scamp are very friendly, I gave them both a good stroke! They are both rescue dogs Amber is from Leigh Cats and Dogs Home and Scamp was found tied up outside a golf course. Fortunately he was taken to his current humans sons vets and that’s how he came to live with them. I know I’ve said this before but I really don’t understand why people abandon dogs, if they really don’t want them why don’t they take them to a rescue centre? Amber and Scamp get on well together but Scamp has little dog syndrome and barks at all other dogs!

I’ve met up with some friends tonight after work, it was great to catch up with some of the former IWM North crew! I really wanted to find a dog early on today, I was worried I’d struggle in the evening so I went for a walk when I got to Manchester this morning but no joy! I went out at lunchtime but again no dogs! Fortunately pretty much as soon as I left work this evening I bumped into a beautiful and excited puppy!

Lily is a lovely friendly girl, I think she’s excited to see everyone! Lily was a good girl and sat for her photo, she’s such a cutie. Look at those lovely ears, so gorgeous. Lily likes to chew her lead, she’s even managed to tangle it up!

It was pouring down at lunchtime today so I decided not to go out on a dog search until I got back to Bolton. I parked up near nursery and spotted a very lovely looking dog across the road so I went to say hello. Lilly was so excited that she did her excited dog dance where she steps from side to side, so cute. Lilly always does her dance when she’s excited! It reminds of a lovely Black and White Corgi I used to know called Pearl, she also used to dance from side to side when I saw her. The excited dog dance always makes me think of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer makes Lisa play the jug to help him think and he does a side to side dance along to the thinking music!

Lilly is such a happy friendly dog, she’s one of the happiest dogs I’ve ever met! Lilly is a Golden Labrador and Golden Retriever cross. When she was a puppy she looked more like a Labrador but her fur has changed as she’s aged and is now darker and with more curls. Lilly is best friends with a cat called Daz, they love each other loads and are always licking each other.

On the way back home from the Lake District we decided to drop off at Carnforth to visit the train station where Brief Encounter was filmed. I’ve wanted to go there for ages and I wasn’t disappointed, the café was great. Whilst we were there we met a beautiful dog called Jo, a Boxer and Husky cross; what a great combination, look at how lovely she is! Jo is a friendly girl, I gave her lots of fuss and she gave me a little kiss! Jo was a very excited puppy but she’s started to clam down as she’s gotten a bit older. Jo loves spending time with her human daddy, they’re with each other most of he time. Jo is really good at catching; she can catch a biscuit that is thrown across the room. As you can see in the photo one of her ears sticks up whilst the other one flops over, how cute.

I’ve been really lucky again today and didn’t have to go on a search for a dog! I was in work when Gemma my colleague spotted a lovely dog outside so I went out to say hello. Leo is a very friendly and handsome boy, he came over for a cuddle and lots of strokes, he likes having attention. Leo is on his holidays, he lives in Italy which is his country of birth. They had to drive all the way to Manchester from Italy as Leo can’t fly! Leo is a rescue dog from an Italian rescue centre. He was rescued 4 years ago, but he’d been in the rescue centre for 5 years at that point; I’m so pleased that he’s found his forever home. Leo likes to talk and has little chats with his human sister! It was difficult to get Leo to keep still for a photo, he kept coming over to me for more strokes!

I spotted a couple of dogs this morning including a Boston Terrier but I was having breakfast inside the Tate Modern so I didn’t manage to go out and meet them! I thought I might see one at the train station but I didn’t today so I popped to the park when I got back home. I spotted my neighbour with beautiful Lady from Day 1 (you can see her in the background of the photo) and Cassius from Day 47, I gave them both a little stoke. My neighbour then introduced me to Meg a lovely Border Collie cross. Meg is very nice, she’s really friendly and I gave her lots of fuss!

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!).

I was off today and so went to my parents in the afternoon. After I’d been there for a little while I spotted a really cute dog walking past so I ran out of the house to meet her. Fudge is a very cute and friendly girl! She loves licking people, she continuously licked my arm whilst I was stroking her. Every night she licks her human dad’s face, she gives him a ‘Fudge facial’. Fudge has had a bit of a hard time during her life. Her dog mum and 12 other puppy siblings were dumped outside the entrance of a Bleakholt Rescue Centre.

When I got back to Bolton I went to the usual park and spotted lovely Alfie from day 159, I gave him a little stroke! I then spotted a very cute dog up ahead and so went over to say hello!
