I mentioned in my Today is…………. post earlier that on our walk this morning we met up with a lot of dogs.
We were quite surprised to see so many dogs out with their people as it was quite early, but then most of them were locals, some having only recently moved into the area.
Our route this morning was along the road first, then going up onto the prom at the clubhouse and walking back.
First up was a Bedlington terrier.
We don’t see these very often and the one this morning was more like the dog on the left. He had a lovely temperament and being on an extendable lead, social distancing was maintained.
Further along two beauties, being brother and sister from the same litter of goldendoodles.
Their colouring was a golden yellow from the retriever gene pool and I got well and truly investigated for treats and which hand was the best to be petted with.
Two definite locals next being greyhounds, and progress has been made with the white one of the pair as he was a little nervous of other dogs when they first came here about a year ago. Both of us got sniffed and leaned on.
As we were coming off the prom, we met up with another not so often seen breed, a samoyed.
This one was a soft as they come, and came up to me thrusting his nose under my hand and leaning into my legs. His face was gorgeous.
Not too far from home we met up with our friend who took in Jade and his whippet Max.
Jade has settled in so well, and the two dogs get on wonderfully. We were passed by a mutual friend with his two labradors heading off to the beach.
and were passed by a staffy and a springer spaniel. Then as we turned for home, the lady with the three Italian spinones was returning from her second outing to collect the third as she cannot manage them all together on her mobility scooter.
Yeah, puppy fix by the dozen.
Note: All dog pictures from the internet, though I have tried to match colouring to the dogs we met today.
