Dog of the Month - January

Humphrey has been walking with me for 8 months - he's a very cute Bulldog, nearly two years old now. He's a cracking personality! Very entertaining, and all the regulars in the park love him - even those without dogs can't see him without cooing over him.

He is very much the reincarnation of Tigger:

The wonderful thing about Tiggers
Is Tiggers are wonderful chaps
They're loaded with vim and vigor
They love to leap in your laps
They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, thumpy
Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun

This doesn't always go down very well with other dogs, although he did learn very quickly to be calm and controlled around the other dogs in his regular walking group. Every new dog though, got Tiggered.

Then, after a very quiet winter of calm walks, in January I started walking a very cute 10 month old Wire Haired Fox Terrier. Humphrey was very happy to see his new buddy, and very gently and carefully made friends. No leaping in her lap! I think it might be love...

So because of his very grown up and calm welcome for the new girl, not only did Humphrey win Dog of the Month for January, the awards were created simply so he could have the first one!

Sadly his time with us is coming to an end, but we hope to see Humphrey again in the future, and we will always remember him fondly.

His presentation photo is slightly whited out (and he's trying to eat his rosette), so here's a collection of photos from the last 8 months.

We love you Humphrey! xx
