Dogs, Dogs, and more Dogs

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.

Approaching the cafe we saw 2 cocker spaniels, wet and happy from a swim (the kids weren’t so chipper though)
and lying quietly under a table taking everything in was an akita.

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.

We stopped to chat to the guy with the lovely garden

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.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I wouldn’t want to meet an akita in his/her bad mood. They sure look powerful.

    • They are a heavy set dog also known as a Japanese fighting dog, but I wouldn’t want one to be honest. My niece had one and it turned on her. Her little dog jumped in to protect her and the baby and suffered horrendous injuries, my niece herself sustaining a leg wound that needed stitches. The dog was forced outside, vet was called and euthanised immediately. That was 9 years ago, and her little dog is still going strong.

  7. Looks like you had a good day. I feel that way when I get to visit or do chores for someone who has horses. Really miss owning a horse.
