Winnie, Doris, Tilly, Angel and Kujo

I had a treat on Sunday! Walking along the beach I spotted a group of dogs having fun in the sea and thought how perfect they would be for the blog, there I met Winnie the Bulldog aged 2, Doris the Pug aged 2, Tilly the Jack Russell aged 4, Angel the Springer Spaniel aged 6 and Kujo the Siberian Husky aged 1.
They were tearing around the place, chasing the ball, chasing each other, in and out of the sea, all except Winnie who was more interested in posing for her photos and having as many cuddles and scratches behind the ear as she could. To say I fell in love with her is putting it mildly.
I didn't find out much more about the dogs but I did find out from their lovely owners that there is going to be a fundraising dog walk held here in Harwich, and I had just missed the first one by about half an hour, there were about 20 dogs in total but I am going to the next on on March 22nd and shall take lots of photos.

You've got to love dog people!!

Meet Buddy, a ridiculously cute Cocker-Poo, he had just been to see Tracey and got a hair cut and very smart he looks too. He is coming up to 3 yrs old, he knows lots of tricks, he dances, twizzles, sits and stays and is generally a very clever dog.

This little sweetie is Honey and she took quite a shine to my dog, Fergus and they had a good romp around on the prom.

She is a beautiful 2 year old Westie and her Dad has had her since she was a puppy.

She always lays down when she sees a dog (see first photo) and she is very well behaved.

Whenever I see a dog in a coat it always shouts love, care and devotion to me, you know that dog is pampered and well looked after.


What a stunner!!!

This beautiful, handsome boy is Oki, a 6 year old Husky. His parents have had him for 5 months after buying him from someone who was keeping him in unsuitable conditions.

He is very well known around town!

I hope I meet him again and I can take some better photos, I was on the beach and he was 3ft above me on the prom looking through the railings so it was hard to get a photo that didn't have railings in it.


This handsome boy is Frank, he is 2.5 years old and a stunning Cocker Spaniel (mostly).

His parents have had him since he was a puppy.

He can do tricks and loves walks and stones. Yes people, we have another stone fiend here!

Monty and Sirius

Monty is a 6 yr old Lhasa Apso and Sirius is a 5 yr old black Labrador. They were being walked by their lovely dog minder, Lorraine, who is always very busy minding dogs, lucky lady!

Clarence, Otis and Lily



This happy trio os made up of Clarence (black face), Otis (tan face) both German Shepherds and Lily the black Labrador and they are 7 years old.

They were extremely happy and excited and were having a lot of fun running in and out of the sea.

Their Mum said they are full of life, very well behaved and love the beach.


Meet Buddy, he's a Patterdale/Lakeland cross but could also possibly have a bit of Border Terrier in him...maybe.

He is 9 months old and his Mum has had him since he was 8 weeks old.

He loves his ball and a good boogie, when asked to dance he's up on his back legs strutting his stuff.

He is very clever, knows exactly what his Mum is saying and to be honest, he is just like a little human.

Anya and Susie

Meet Anya and Susie. Anya is a 5 year old Old English Sheepdog and Susie is a 9 year old Lhasa Apso and their mum has had them both from puppies.

Anya is very protective of little Susie and if another dog comes near her, Anya will put Susie between her legs and stand over her, I love the way Susie is peeking shyly out from behind Anya in the photo as Anya stands guard in front of her awwwwwww


Kizzi is a 6.5 year old Miniature Schnauzer and has lived with her Mum since she was a puppy.

She knows lots of tricks and as you can see, she is admirably displaying her Sit Up and Beg trick to perfection.

She has a tendency to steal things off the bedside cabinet.

Gus Hunny Bun

This is Gus Honey Bun (to give him his full name), a 6 yr old Patterdale/Jack Russell cross, and what a fine combination it makes!

He is a real character and knows quite a few tricks, roll over, dance etc although his Mum is convinced that if you shave his head he'll have 666 marked on his scalp and he can turn into a Rottweiler when he wants.

Nah, don't believe a word of it!!!


Another serious case of Cute......

This is Dixie, a 12 week old Sprocker Spaniel with the ability to move at the speed of light.

She had an obsession with my scarf which made photographing her somewhat of a challenge as she was mostly underneath my camera!

Her favourite things to do are chase her toy lion, and sticks that are far bigger than herself, along the beach.

She prefers humans to dogs.

And scarves. She loves scarves.

I'm also in the process of setting up a Facebook page for Hounds of Harwich, please pop over and like it and you can also see lots of other dog related posts on there too.


Prepare to die from a serious case of cute......

This is Jess a three and a half month old Lhasa Apso/Chihuahua cross and not, as appearances may lead one to believe, a long haired hamster/teddy bear cross.

This tiny ball of heart melting cuteness can also move at the speed of light, testing my photography skills to their limit!

Her favourite thing to do is to lay across her mummy's chest whilst having her tummy tickled and having sweet nothings whispered into her little ears.


This is Ollie, he is a five year old Shih Tzu.

His special talent is an amazing ability to sit and wait when told, for incredibly long times.


This is Jacob a one year old Chihuahua.

He came complete with his own entourage of adoring young ladies and was quite the 'Dapper Dan' enjoying every minute of it and posing in a most stately manner for his photos.

He was Alice's Christmas present a year ago after she launched a Power Point campaign at her parents in order to get a dog, one year on and he is a fully worshiped member of the family. 

His nickname is Dobbie (due to his uncanny resemblance to a certain Harry Potter character) or else Little Legs, for obvious reasons.

He likes to collect socks in his spare time and lays them on the window sill. He can often be found sitting on the window sill, which he shares with three cats, waiting for his fan club to return home.

Angel and Jess

Meet Angel and Jess.

Angel is a 4 month old Dalmatian with an amazing one blue eye and one brown eye!

Her companion is 3 month old Collie/Lab cross Jess.

Both were extremely excitable, energetic and playful and it was some kind of miracle I got any photos at all!
