Year of the Dog Day 291

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!

When I arrived into work this morning I noticed that some stalls were being set up and then I spotted a tail wagging so I went to investigate! I met very excited Toffee, a gorgeous Cavashon. Toffee is still a puppy and he’s very happy about everything; I gave him lots of fuss! Toffee would like to be fussed for 8 hours a day if he could! Toffee lives with a cat who he loves lots, they all go on walks togther, how cute. As Toffee was at the stall all day I went to see him a couple of times, I got  to give him lots of strokes!

Although I went out and about at lunchtime today I didn’t spot any dogs so I went for a little walk around the block when I got to Ethan’s nursery. It didn’t take long before I spotted a Springer Spaniel up ahead so I went in hot pursuit! Beth is a beautiful girl, she has such a friendly smiley face. Beth is getting old now but she’s still active and hasn’t got any grey hairs! Beth lives with a cat, they get on well and snuggle up with each other every night, but Beth lets the cat know who’s boss in the morning and chases her!

On my way to the train station heading home I spotted a man carrying a tiny puppy, I couldn’t miss saying hello! Get ready for cute overload as Bill Murray is gorgeous! Bill Murray’s human has only just picked him up from the breeder but I could see how much he loves him already! Bill Murray got his name because his human saw a picture of the human Bill Murray which he thought looked like his lovely puppy. It’s a great name! Bill’s mum is a French Bulldog, she’s very boisterous! Bill’s human hasn’t had time to get to know him yet so we don’t have answers to some of the usual questions but I’ll hopefully be able to update them when he’s older!

I had training on the other side of Manchester this morning, I hoped I would spot a  dog on the way back to work but no joy! When I got to Ethan’s nursery I went for a little walk around the block but again no joy, so I decided I would pop to the park on the way home. I’m really gutted that it’s starting to get dark early, it’s difficult to get good pictures! When I got to the park there was still some light and I spotted Tobias a very excited puppy running in the field. I’ve met Tobias before, he was playing with Molly from day 275. Tobias is very excited, he’s a ball of energy, it takes quite a lot to tire him out! Tobias is a friendly boy and loves playing with other dogs!

We popped to Moses Gate Country Park this afternoon for little walk round. When we arrived we spotted gorgeous Geoff the St Bernard; I can’t believe how big he is now, he’s massive! Just near the playground I spotted a lovely looking dog which I thought was possibly a Chow but I wasn’t 100% sure as she looked a bit smaller than the others I’ve met! I went over to meet beautiful China and it turns out that she is Chow, she’s just quite a small one; apparently her brother is massive compared to her! China is very affectionate, I gave her lots of strokes and she properly cuddled into me for a hug! China is really good with kids and loves cuddles!

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 was waiting to get off the train this morning and I spotted a beautiful dog on the train, I didn’t have time to take her picture though! I was at the reception desk at work when I spotted a lovely Bedlington Terrier outside, very exciting! I went outside to meet handsome Larry and fortunately Larry’s very kind human dad didn’t mind waiting whilst I ran up to my office to get my camera! Larry is a very nice boy, I gave him lots of strokes and when I was saying goodbye he pulled back towards me for one more fuss! He also has a real spring in his step, he almost skips! Larry’s humans got him when he was 1 year old from some people that had two other big dogs. They think the other dogs might have been picking on Larry as he didn’t look too great. Fortunately he now has a good home and gets lots of fuss, he’s a bit of a lap dog!

I’m working late again tonight but rather than go into work at the usual time I’ve decided to start later so that I can go in search of a dog first thing and not worry about finding one! I dropped Ethan off at nursery and then headed to the park. As soon as I arrived I spotted a lady walking a very cute dog. I thought that Meggie was a Yorkshire Terrier but she’s actually a Chorkie, a Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahua cross. Meggie is a very friendly girl, she jumped up really high to say hello. Meggie really likes people and other dogs, she always wants to say hello and to play. Meggie is a rescue dog from Leigh Cats and Dogs home, he was found wondering the streets of Salford all on her own!

I forgot my dog blog kit today, booooo! I was going to go out at lunchtime too! Anyway I picked up Ethan from my parents after work and headed home and as Tim was home I went in search of a dog. The weather looked really threatening but I’m pleased to say that it didn’t rain! I didn’t have to go far when I spotted a very happy looking dog walking down the path so I went to meet him. Oscar is a cross between a Jack Russell and Staffordshire Bull Terrier, he’s a handsome boy! It’s really interesting to see which features a dog gets from each breed; Oscar has the face shape of a Jack Russell and the features of a Staffie! Oscar is very alert, he had his eye on the ball the whole time I was with him! Oscar’s parents saw a advert for him on a website. When they went to meet him they were worried about what might happen to him if they didn’t give him a home so he came to live with them, I’m glad he did!

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 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.

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.
