On one of my outings this week I had the distinct honour of meeting Dulcie and her Bassett Hound, Bella. Dulcie is fondly known as The Cookie Lady at Southland Off Leash Park. Hop on over to my 100 Pets Project Page to meet them. I must say Bella is a lovely sweet dog and has such a generous nature, sharing her person with all the other dogs at the Park.
Another cute old fella I met was Rowdy a 14 year old Scottish Terrier. He was at the Park with his people and 3 other dog buddies. Although I didn’t get a photo of them all together (the dogs had no real interest in posing) we had a great chat and I was saddened to learn that Rowdy was deaf and was dealing with cancer. Their vet has told them Rowdy is past his expiry date but he’s still plugging along. He is a sweet, friendly guy and I just had to take some photos of him.
It was great seeing him out at the Park meeting new friends and getting lots of pats and scratches. I do hope I get to meet him again.
Rowdy is absolutely adorable!
Thanks Meagen! He was such a cutie! Everytime I tried to get down to his level to take a shot he sauntered over and tried to lick me 🙂
Sheila, Sadly the cookie lady , my mother Dulcie, lost her beautiful Bella to an abdominal tumor on Friday April 12. As she continues her cookie distributions, I am sure that all her furry friends and their families at Southland Off Leash will help her heart to heal.
Oh my I am so very saddened to hear this news! Bella was the sweetest and friendliest pup I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Please pass on my sympathies to Dulcie, lossing such a special friend is so very difficult. Your mom is such a wonderful, kind lady, a gentle soul and I feel honoured to have met her. My dogs love her and I always enjoy seeing your mom and chatting with her at the Park. I hope we can be part of her healing process, if there is anything we can do, please let me know.
