Year of the Dog Day 283

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!

Handsome Luther!

Handsome Luther!

Year of the Dog Day 20

I was hoping that I might see another dog walking past my work today but I think that’s wishful thinking! I went for a walk around Manchester at lunchtime but I didn’t see any dogs. I planned to go for a walk around the block when I got to nursery but just as I was pulling up to park the car I noticed a lady walking a very handsome dog! I parked up as quick as I could and ran after them being very careful not to slip on the ice! The very excited Tikaani was very happy to say hello! I wasn’t sure what type of dog Tikaani was but his owner explained that he’s a Northern Inuit, what a lovely dog! Tikaani was very chatty and spoke to me for a treat, clever boy!
