Year of the Dog Day 320

I went for a walk at lunchtime today and as soon as I walked out of the door I spotted a gorgeous and very happy looking dog carrying a toy chicken so I went to say hello! Raphael is a really friendly boy, he looked straight into my eyes to say hello; I also got some kisses! Raphael’s human mummy told me that he’s well known in central Manchester as the chicken dog as he always has his chicken in his mouth! I tried to get a photo of him with the chicken in his mouth but he dropped it when I took the photo! Raphael is a rescue dog from Manchester Dogs Home. His human mummy has had him since he was 18 months old.
