Well today was a busy day with 4 walks in total but I loved every minute of it in this lovely weather! It’s about time the sun was out and feeling warm after the very long winter we’ve had! Today also saw the return of Petra and Connie who joined me on a nice walk along the Fallowfield Cycleway Loop. Both were very excited when I arrived to take them out so it was nice to have been missed. I’ll look forward to taking them out on more ventures.
All the pooches were very happy to be out and here are some picture highlights from today…
It’s been a week of new canine clients this week, and it’s been very nice and they’ve all had a great time! First on a walk was Sephy, a lovely Bedlington Terrier who has been out a couple of times this week to Chorlton Water Park. Sephy loves to play, chase the geese and swans and pop in the river for a little paddle. She does look all innocent in her picture but she can certainly bark and be very energetic bless her!
Next for their first walk are Maddie and Arthur. Their previous walker had to move away so their owners needed a new dog walker. The first few days took a while for them to get used to me and they did run off for quite a distance when out in Alexandra Park, and Platt Fields Park. I had to have my eyes everywhere as they wouldn’t stick together when off somewhere exploring. They did come back eventually after lots of shouting and whistling! By the end of the week they stayed close by and enjoyed getting out for an hour’s play!
And last but not least, is Friendly Fred the Cocker Spaniel. Fred always gives me a lovely welcome when I go to pick him up. As he lives over in Sale, I bring along some other doggy friends for him to have a run and play with and usually go to Sale Water Park, and Chorlton Ees at the top of the river brook. Fred has a playful bark in the car, and when out and is just really excited. Fred also likes to go for a little swim. I didn’t take him out today, which is a god job really as the Spring weather was freezing! Not sure he would have liked the chill afterwards!
So all in all a very good week and I look forward to more adventures with them in the coming weeks!
This cheeky little chappie is called Charlie, a very lovely 8 month old Springer Spaniel! He came with us on his first walk today, and had bags of energy as you might expect at his tender age. He is my youngest client so he will definitely keep me on my feet. I discovered that Charlie likes to play in leaves, chase sticks and play with other dogs. He also likes to chase the ball…he just doesn’t like to give it me back! Charlie is also friends with Rosie the labradoodle and Barney and Bella, so he’ll have no problem on days out with the other pooches although I somehow think Rosie may be his age range for continuous play! Watch out for more updates on Charlie’s adventures!
Dogs Buddy gives a big welcome to cute little Cleo, shown in the picture on the left. Cleo is a lovely little Jack-a-poo and joined us on a couple of walks today, and will be along for more walks and play during this week, and the weekend!
Mickey was also pleased to see her and they played ball together, and must be loving all this female attention. At least Cleo was more his size as his other lady friends do tower over him!
A very big Dogs Buddy Welcome to Daisy, the Border Collie. Daisy had her first walk today in Chorlton Park. Daisy is lovely and was very excited when I arrived. She was running around all over the place wanting me to throw a ball and even sticks. Plenty more of that in the days ahead!
