Dog Spot – FCC train from Finsbury Park to Moorgate

Oh hiya pup lovers! It’s been bloody ages since I’ve posted a dog spot, hasn’t it? This is mainly because I am REALLY slow to get my phone out and take pictures of dogs, and by the time I have they’ve walked off. Bums.

But today I saw a really love chap on the train and had ample time to photograph him (still a crappy photo though…) as I was lucky enough to stand next to him.

He was very obedient, and was happily giving everyone a subtle and gentle sniff as they boarded and disembarked the train at various stops.

I’m not sure what bred he was, but suspect he is probably a mix. He looked like a collie, but had the dimensions of a sausage dog – intriguing and very cute!

I was in my home town recently, and saw this chap out for a Saturday morning stroll. He’s a wired-hair fox terrier – a breed that has a special place in my heart, as my first dog was one. He looked a lot smarter than my pet though – mine was always covered in mud and stank! Poor dog.

While Andrew was fussing over change for the meter in the shopping mall carp park, I came across this guy. He looked pretty sad, so I went over to say hiya – he wasn’t impressed and continued to pout. I guess it sucks to be left in the car.

I love beagles, so was chatting away to him before I realised I looked crazy to passers by, so I bid him farewell. I wonder what he’s up to now…

Dog Spot – Willesden Junction Overground

This weekend I ventured out West, to Wembley to buy clothes for a very good friend of mine’s wedding. I am pleased to report that the journeys there and back were prime dog-spotting territory.

We saw this guy striding down the platform at Willesden Junction. Andrew actually exclaimed loudly to me, “Look at him! He’s so happy!” and indeed, he had a massive smile on his face. He looked like he’d been for a dip somewhere, which we all know labs are fond of. He made my wait for our onward train a lot happier.

After a short hiatus, I am back – and what better way to celebrate my Phoenix-like return than with an ultimate dog spot. A bassett (one of my all-time faves), a black pug and some kind of Irish terrier – a great selection! I think they were off to Highbury Fields to let loose. I wish I could have gone with them.

Dog Spot – Circle Line, London Tube

I’ve got a confession. I love making friends with strangers dogs when they’re not looking (and I really hope that isn’t some unintentional double entendre). I also try to take photos of them. Yeah, the more you read of this blog the more you’ll realise I am a totally creepy person.

Now I am going to share all my sightings with you. Here is my favourite London underground dog spot – four of the little guys! This man has my dream job – hanging out with dogs. Well I assume that it’s his job. I like the grumpy border terrier at the back best.
