TAG: My Furry Friend #1

It's been ages since I've posted, and I guess I don't really have any good excuses. I've been out and about recently, travelling to Norfolk and London in the last few months but honestly, I just haven't felt incredibly inspired. However, I decided to post something a little bit different today and do the Furry Friend tag! Because I have two dogs and three cats I've decided to split this tag up into five posts, so hopefully you'll look forward to seeing those. So without further ado, let's jump in!

What is your pet's name?

What kind of pet is he and what breed?
He's a doggy and is a working type English Springer Spaniel

How long have you had your pet friend?
Last July.

How did you get your pet friend?
He's actually my boyfriend Jack's dog. He had a lovely old Springer Spaniel called Taz who sadly passed away. A few years later, Jack decided it was time to fill the puppy sized hole in his life. So we got on the net and bought Rudy from a local reputable breeder. His mother was a stunning black and white roan spaniel called Meg and he had a black cocker spaniel Auntie Winnie who was sad to see the puppies go!

How old is your pet?
He's one year and two months old.

What are some quirky traits your pet has?
This little pooch is one of the funniest creatures I've ever met! When he was a tiny puppy, he had a very distinctive heart marking on his back, which is what made me notice him straight away in the litter. As he's grown, it's become a little more blurred, but it's still there! He also has a little Cavalier King Charles friend called Bo who he's happy to let boss him about - when they play tug of war, Rudy purposely lets him win! And instead of chewing his toys, he likes to suck them. Oh, and dislikes muddy water and absolutely loves to have a bath. Go figure.

What does your relationship with your pet mean to you?
Until Rudy, I've only ever had cats and wasn't sure how I feel around a dog. I've always wanted one, but they are quite different to the moggies I'm used to. Rudy has helped me feel so much more comfortable around dogs and never fails to me to make me smile. He loves nothing more than to cuddle up close and be with his family. 

What are some of your favourite pastimes with your pet?
As he's a spaniel, Rudy loves long walks so we often take him for picnics to the beach, through the forest or just the local park. Afterwards, we'll head home and he'll sit underneath the sofa sucking his favorite teddy bear.

And his nicknames?
 Rude, Rude Boy, Doody, Officer Doody and Officer Rudolph Rudius Doody.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post; I'll have a few more coming where I'll be introducing my other furry friends. If you're not really a pet person, they'll be plenty of my regular fashion, beauty and entertainment related posts so never fear! Oh, and if you do have a pet, furry or otherwise, write up this tag and leave me your link below, I'd love to check them out. See you guys on the flipside.
