Year of the Dog Day 343

I went for a walk at lunchtime today but unfortunately I didn’t spot any dogs! It’s dark now by the time I leave work so I decided to message my friend Sabrina to see if I could go round to her house and take a picture of her dog, so I popped round this evening. Amber is a really beautiful Labradoodle but she is very nervous of new people so she wasn’t keen on having her picture taken. Fortunately as Sabrina thought it might be difficult to get a picture of Amber she had already enlisted her dad (who happens to be my former maths teacher) to come round with his very handsome Red Setter!

Duke is a very friendly boy, I don’t think he stops smiling! Duke is the first Red Setter that I’ve had on the blog so I was very happy to meet him. Duke is a rescue dog from Irish Setter Rescue; he was 9 months old when he came to live with his humans. Duke has a sensitive stomach which is why they think he ended up in a rescue centre. Duke loves having a fuss and wants to make friends with any human or dog; he’s best friends with Amber! He likes to lean into people for a good stroke; he also thinks he’s smaller than he is and sits on his humans! Duke’s human niece and nephew are very excited that their Uncle Duke is going to be on the blog!


Handsome Duke!

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!

Handsome William!
