Year of the Dog Day 274

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 popped to the park this afternoon on way to pick up Ethan from nursery. Despite the weather being beautiful it was pretty quiet in the park but then I spotted a Golden Labrador in the field. Ben is a lovely, friendly boy, he walked round me about 5 times when I first went over, making sure I was giving him lots of strokes! It was quite difficult to get a photo of Ben at first as he kept coming up to me for more strokes! Ben was enjoying playing with his golf ball whilst I was with him!

Year of the Dog Day 244

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.

Year ofthe Dog Day 180

I went to Jodrell Bank today and I hoped I might see a dog there but unfortunately they can’t have dogs in the grounds! On the way home I stopped off at the usual park and spotted a couple getting 3 dogs out of their car so I went over to say hello. I decided to take a photo of just one of the dogs as I hope I might see them all again! Woody was the first of the dogs to come up and say hello so I’ve made him my dog of the day! Woody is a very friendly Yellow Labrador, what a lovely boy! He gets on very well with his 2 dog housemates Tarka who is 17 years old and Molly.

Year of the Dog Day 84

I was off today so I popped to the park with my little boy. I saw quite a few dogs when we first arrived but the swings took priority! After lots of fun on the slide and the swings we went for a little walk on a dog hunt and it didn’t take us long to spot Jack. Jack was very excited by everything, he was very happy when he spotted a cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Yorkshire Terrier! It took a while to get Jack to keep still as he was soooo excited. I managed to get this shot with bribery of a treat!
