Random dog

A lovely dog we saw while we were out a couple of weeks ago. It was a mixed breed but I can’t remember exactly what? A shitzu crossed with a corgi? It was small and sweet and friendly. I took a photo as I was thinking I might do a small painting including it. I’m not sure what to do in the background. Why are small fluffy dogs so cute? I think it’s the sweet eyes and nose.

Goslings

We had a little walk today and came across these three goslings taking a stroll along the canal towpath with their mom and dad. The parents were very protective and we made sure we kept away from them. I snuck a quick shot and then cropped it later so that they are easier to see. I think they have slightly longer legs than ducklings. They can’t be very old as they are so small. (parents were Canada Geese).

Ginger

For a couple of years now I’ve sponsored a guide dog for the blind. I get regular ‘pupdates’ to tell me how the trainee puppy is doing. Ginger is my latest puppy and when I saw this photo I just had to share. The thought that this cute dog can turn into a kind helper to a person in need is so wonderful. I hope Ginger learns well and qualifies with flying colours.
