SATURDAY CRITTERS - Dog at the Bangor Walled Garden, County Down

As my laptop is still out of action I discovered this post that I made last November in draft when I visited Bangor Walled Garden, County Down, Northern Ireland and was there to photograph the flowers and vegetables.  However, I could not resist photographing these four dogs and their owners were very helpful in assisting me. Let the dogs speak!  

Yes I have been playing in the mud and loving it!

You want a side view?

Now this is my buddy, he lives with me, well I suppose I really live with him as he is much older than me.

I have a pink lead because I am a girl, buddy has a more masculine blue one.

Oh I see another dog over there, wonder can I go and play with him?

Is this photo session ever going to end, I wonder?

Now if I roll on the grass enough and get all this dirt off, I might not have to have a bath!

Watch and learn Pup, this is how to make a good pose.  
What's that lady?  Ah you are going for coffee.  Well two of my other friends are over there.  See you around!

Ok, I know I’m cute, everyone loves me.

See, I have the wet nose just so you tell I am healthy.

I'm a bit spoiled, Mama allows me to sit on her knee but I’m not complaining.

Now I know I am not allowed on the table but I cannot see you photographing my friend from my Mama's knee!

You want to take my photograph? 

No one ever does when my cute friend is around.  
I'd be honoured.

I will lie down so you get me all in.

Two head shots lady and then we have to go but I appreciated my photo being taken.  See you next time in the gardens. 

I hope you enjoyed all the dogs and their chat.

I am linking this post with SATURDAY CRITTERS.

  7. You can tell the Brittany Spaniel? that I'd always prefer him over the little dog. And the first two are wonderful also. Life is better when dogs are in it. :-)
