This lovely German Shepherd cross, joined me on his first walk today, and for the rest of this week only. The reason being is that he isn’t from Manchester, and is visiting for this week only and his owners aren’t able to take him out on regular walks. Shame really as he was a joy to walk. We went to Platt Fields Park (my second visit there for today) and he enjoyed the atmosphere as it was a little busier than it was in the morning, probably due to the warm weather and people heading to the park after work, uni, school etc.
He is allowed off the lead and his recall was great and he posed for some nice pictures shown here. I loved the way he sat and lay down and also wanted to give his paw to earn a treat – very cute! I’ll look forward to the other walks we’ll have and introducing him to some pooch friends 🙂
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!
Day 3 of taking Petra and Connie out for a walk and the weather was really miserable with snow and rain and feeling really cold! That didn’t stop the girls enjoying their walk as we went around Fallowfield Campus and along the paths to Birchfield Park, where as usual they received lots of looks and compliments. Mickey joined us again and as you can see they had their coats on to keep them dry.
