Year of the Dog Day 182

I’ve been very excited about today! When I went to the dog show at Turton Tower the other week I met a gorgeous puppy Saint Bernard called Geoff but I already had a dog of the day so we swapped details and arranged to meet up; today was that day! I’ve been telling everyone for the past week about the puppy and mummy Saint Bernard that I’ve arranged to meet, so exciting!

Myself and Ethan went to Moses gate country park this morning and I definitely wasn’t disappointed when I met amazing Emma and Geoff! They are both really friendly, me and Ethan got to give them lots of strokes, I even got to have my photo taken with them! Although Geoff is only 4 months old he’s already a winner and won best in show at the dog show where I met them! Emma has also been to Crufts and Geoff will enter when he’s older! Emma is Geoff’s mummy. She had a litter of 7 puppies but unfortunately she lost 3 of them. Geoff loves his mummy and also enjoys tormenting her, Emma is a patient dog!

Gorgeous Emma!

Year of the Dog Day 130

I was invited to Laila’s (from day 62) birthday party today so I knew I’d see plenty of dogs but on the way there I spotted at Saint Bernard! I was soooo excited, everyday I hope I’ll see a Saint Bernard! I had to get my husband to pull over in the car and I ran out to say hello. I met very beautiful Ruby, she’s such a lovely girl. I got to give her lots of strokes and she sat on my feet to make sure I couldn’t move and so could carry on stroking her! To be fair it’s pretty hard to move a Saint Bernard off you! Ruby lives in the Tansy Green pub and so she gets lots of fussing from the locals. She make herself at home and sits on the seats next to the customers and she’s also been know to steal some Guiness! Ruby’s human dad has told me that the movie Beethoven is pretty much what it’s like having a Saint Bernard; you have to make sure you don’t leave the toilet seat up! Ruby is also a mum and once had a litter of 7 puppies. Unfortunately Ruby has since been diagnosed with epilepsy and has to take medication every day; she leads a full and happy life though!

Laila’s birthday party was lots of fun and I got to see lots of lovely dogs including a Grey Whippet, a Westie, Alfie from day 113 and a puppy Boxer; all in all a very good day!

Beautiful Ruby!
