A very special hound

The other Sunday was spent in Ikea, yes lucky old me. Apart from the treat of Swedish meatballs for lunch there was a far better reason for this trip to put a smile on my face. Jasmine, this very special dog was sitting patiently in the returns department. As from the images the reason I say special is Jasmine is a helper. She looks after people that may need extra care, a service dog. She is absolutely beautiful and the ring of flowers round her neck just added to her beautiful charm.

muddy pup

This happy hound had just returned from a stroll in the park.
Muddy paws and a wagging tail indicates a good time was had.
I do find the mix of golden retriever and poodle irresistible.

Sweet Old Timer

Yes I know another Beardie but I will confess to loving them. This is Miko, he has just been showered and clipped which is why he is looking very pleased with himself. I'm sure he won't mind me saying that he is prone to getting a little matted and pongy but I think at his grand old age he is entitled to be more carefree in keeping up appearances. Good for him.

What a corker

There seems to be fewer hours in the day now for dogspotting but I have a beauty here that can't go by without some limelight.
Max lives in a pub in Soho, lucky Max I hear you cry. What a corker he is, all hair and wet nose. I think the sun came out on this rainy day just for him.

Vive La France

I would like to introduce you to Claude, a French Bulldog. As you can see a rather naughty chap but very very adorable. He has a rather distinguished family heritage, apparently his father was a Crufts champion, so Claude comes from the right side of the tracks.
He can be spotted most days in the highly respected menswear store Oi Polloi, in Manchester. Sometimes he has to be put back into his cage as yet he has not learnt that shop stock is not for chewing. But I'm sure he will soon learn to understand that in the fashion business quality garments deserve the utmost respect.

Too cute

A quick little post. The cute factor of this image is off the dogspotter scale. Barney eating snow. This image was sent to me from my hound loving mother-in-law. Barney is owned by a very lucky friend of hers who has kindly agreed for Barney to receive a united 'ah' from all those that view him. AH!

A very Happy New Year to Molly

A somewhat late Happy New Year and apologies for a lack of hounds for 2010. But after the festive Christmas break I am back on track and my dogspotter nose is back in action.
So to kick start the year my friends i bring you the one and only Molly. Big round of applause please, this beautiful hound is definitely looking forward to a happier year. Molly has been rescued, praise to the new owners. Molly's previous life consisted of ill treatment that has turned her into a very timid and scared dog. My brother has been dogsitting her for a couple of weeks and he brought her on a trip to visit me. She was shaking like a leaf when she came in and took refuge under the table. I don't think I have ever seen a dog shake so much. But after a little chicken treat she began to relax and soon her tail began to wag again. Three cheers for Molly. Hip hip hooray.
