Cast of characters on our Walkies.

with one comment

To see Part 1 of the walking saga, click here. This is the photo part of it πŸ™‚

We take care not to bandy the word ‘walk’ about if we are not prepared to put our money where our (collective) mouth is. Teddy has ears like a lynx, understands the word ‘walk’ only too well, and if he hears it spoken out loud, well, then you have to deliver. He is this quiet, aloof dog, but it’s like he has an alter ego on walks. Large and in charge, lol.

So if we wanna ‘talk the talk’ then we gotta ‘walk the walk’. Literally.

As for the cast of characters on our route, obviously I couldn’t include all of them. We go past a lot of dogs. But these are a few that we look out for and have gotten to know a bit.

Firstly, our friends the lab-cross and the basset. We know the white dog’s name is Annabel, as we heard the kids call her that. The other one we just call Bassie. They look out for us, and our dogs just love them. Plenty of nose-touching going on through the fence…

One of the cutest sights that we encounter, has to be this Labrador. He really goes above and beyond the call of duty…take a look…

I’ve actually seen him walking along the top of the wall to get the perfect spot πŸ™‚ I don’t know how he gets up there. Must be something for him to climb up on the other side. He is a real sweetie. He was outside his gate one time, and he wagged his tail at me and tried to follow us home πŸ™‚

Next up is Rottie. I don’t know her real name, but she looks like a rotweiler. Anyway, she always barked at us when we walked past, until one day when she was locked outside her gate. She was as friendly as can be that day, and communicated so clearly to us that she wanted to go back inside her garden. We rang the bell, until they opened the electric gate for her and in she popped. Ever since that day, she is much friendlier and makes communicative whimpers at us, like she’d say hello if she could…

Then there are the 3 Huskies, who greet us like family. Actually, they are distant relatives of the Chows πŸ™‚ I have dubbed them ‘the 3 Husketeers’ so I guess that makes the Basset ‘d’Artagnan’. They posed for this photo for an awfully long time. First my phone’s camera froze and then it wouldn’t go back to the camera app. and they just stood and waited for me so patiently…

On today’s walk, I spotted this friend of ours peeping over the wall. We normally see him around the corner, in front ofΒ  his gate. I had no idea that he watched from the back view, too, because he doesn’t bark at us. Sneeky πŸ™‚

There are so many more colourful little doggy characters; just like people, you get all sorts of personalities.

(I was going to sign off now, but I believe there is time for just one more…)

I think this is a Great Dane, and there is nothing little about him πŸ™‚ He’s not too happy about it when Teddy marks the tree in front of hisΒ  house. Luckily there a high fence around the property.

I’m hoping to get a photo of Milo the Jack Russel one of these days to add to my collection. It’s becoming quite the hobby, lol.

Michael has his Endomondo stats, and I have my photo collection. A bit new-age, but as long as we’re having fun, right?
