Year of the Dog Day 314

I went out at lunchtime today but I didn’t spot any dogs so I went for a walk round the block near Ethan’s nursery but still no joy! I had to wait for my husband to get back before I could resume my search for a dog. It was dark by the time I headed out, I’m really not a fan of these dark nights! I walked for a little while and then I spotted a gorgeous looking dog across the road so I went over to meet him. Brock is a lovely American Bulldog, I haven’t had one on my blog yet so I pleased to meet him! Brock has a lovely temperament, he’s very chilled out! Brock’s human got him when he was a puppy but he had anther older dog that found him a bit much so he temporally went to live with his friend. Brock moved back in with his human when he was about 1 year old; he’d calmed down by that point and he got on really well with the other older dog.

Whilst we were waiting at the door for them a man walked past walking a mega cute Border Terrier so I went to say hello! Jack is a really friendly boy, I gave him lots of strokes and he’s so cute! Jack used to belong to his current humans nephew along with Jack’s dog brother but he found two dogs too much to handle so Jack moved in with his current human. Jack is 10 years old but you wouldn’t think it!

I decided to pop to the park on the way to work today as I knew I wouldn’t have time at lunchtime. I was pretty lucky as I spotted a couple of dogs straight away so I ran over to say hello! 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!

Year of the Dog Day 310

I went out at lunchtime in search for a dog today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any! I didn’t spot any on the way home either! There was a big firework display on tonight so I didn’t think there would be that many dogs out and about so I decided to ask one of my neighbours if I could make their dog my Dog of the Day. Jackson is a mega friendly dog, he was so excited when me and Ethan went round, I think he licked my face for 5 minutes! Jackson really loves people and he especially loves kids and his human’s grandson. When he comes to stay he has a sleepover with him and sleeps on the top bunk, how cute is that! Jackson had previous owners but they found him too boisterous so his current humans took him in; they thinks he’s the best dog they’ve ever had! Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a great picture today but you can see how friendly Jackson’s face is!

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.

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!

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.

Maurice had to have an operation earlier this week so he has some stitches but I’m pleased to say that he’s ok. Maurice’s human mummy told me about a Bichon Frise that they had met who had just gone into a shop so I headed in to search for it! I asked the man in the shop if a dog had just come in and he pointed me in the right direction! They were just coming back up the stairs when I met beautiful Daisy, what a lovely, friendly and excited girl she is! I got to give Daisy lots of stokes, it was pretty difficult to get a photo of her as she kept coming back up to me for more fuss!

Anyway just behind the horses I spotted a dog sat outside the café so I went over to say hello! Koby is a lovely friendly Staffordshire Bull Terrier, I gave him lots of strokes and I couldn’t believe how soft his fur is, he spends lots of time in the doggy parlour! Koby is a rescue dog, he’s around 7 years old but he’s lived with his current human for the last 18 months. Koby’s human fell in love with him as soon as he met him, he just had to take him home!

I went out and a about a few times during the day but I didn’t spot any dogs in Manchester so I popped to the park after work. It was just light enough, it’s going to get hard when he clocks go back! I spotted Charlie and Lola two gorgeous King Charles Cavalier Spaniels across the park. Charlie was my Dog of the Day for Day 111 so I went over to say hello and ask Lola if I could take her picture! Charlie and Lola are both lovely dogs, they’re really friendly to people and other dogs! I gave Lola lots of fuss, what a cute little face she has! Charlie and Lola were previously owned by a person that didn’t look after them properly and fed them food  which was bad for them. This made them overweight and Lola has had to have some teeth removed. Fortunately they now have humans that love them loads and are able to care for them properly.
