How to recognise me (via dogs)


Bit of a weird one, but not being the most social creature, socialising isn’t something I excel at. Most of my conversations with people usually start with the dogs.
So here is a “how to” recognise me I SE23. I am usually attached to one of these furballs.
I don’t bite, nor do they, although they are both rather excitable.
But feel free to say hi if you see me.
Would also love to see who else has a dog, so maybe I can put a name to a muzzle if I see you out and about.

Hiya. I got Bailey, a Husky / German Shepard mix from Battersea in Feb, he is 8 and has a problem with his spine so can only go for little walk but he has settled in really well, still getting used to the shedding:scream:, had a Boxer before with a short coat. So any Husky advice would be great :+1:


What a lovely cross. Well done for taking on a dog in need of a home, and one with physical issues too, that’s great of you,
The shedding, or “blowing” as it gets called in the Malamute / Husky circles, really does take some getting used to. Depending on the top coat length, it can be an absolute nightmare, or something you can get used to.
A good grooming with a long toothed comb really helps when the undercoat loosens up.
Or do what I do with mine, wait til it gets really bad and loose and take them to The Groom Room in Pets at Home in Sydenham lol

The breeds are known for being free spirited, so can be a handful to train with good obedience, hopefully the GSD side of the mix will help you there.

Anyway, lovely to e-meet you. And if I can help in any way just let me know. :slight_smile:


@Baileysmum is my neighbour - and she is the best neighbour one could hope for! Her dog is lovely, really quiet and well behaved, and a beautiful cross-breed. In a Victorian half-house like ours, living next to peaceful, respectful neighbours with lovely pets is a massive win.

Thanks, Ann, for taking in all our parcels (there have been a few lately, due in part to the launch of this website!). Really appreciated.


So close by thanks for the info @thirstforwine
In which case you have probably seen me with one of mine at some point @Baileysmum as I am on Church Rise
I would love to say my dogs fit the same category, but alas they are a little boisterous. Very friendly, just hard to read for some.
Good to have great neighbours for sure Rob.


I was thinking about groomer but can’t get him there, would have to find a mobile groomer. here is a


Can’t get him there because of distance @Baileysmum? Happy to run you down to Pets at Home if that helps. They are very good there.
He is stunning by the way, hope I get to say hi some time.


Thank you so much for the offer :smiley:


No problem at all @Baileysmum If it is of use to you just let me know when is good for you.


Hi-diddly-ho neighbours. Can’t quite believe my first post here is going to be a picture of my dog - if you’d told me that a few months ago I would have laughed in your (virtual) face. I’m owned by a nine-month old Cocker spaniel called Henry. True to his breed, he is as mad as a box of frogs but hasn’t a bad bone in his body.

I can recommend the groomers at Pets At Home as well - Henry is super wriggly and they are very patient with him, he always comes out looking good and very happy with all the fuss.


Hey neighbour! Welcome aboard.
Nothing wrong with your first pic being of the lovely Henry. And they say kids are demanding eh :slight_smile:



This is my cavalier Dusty - a little minx and and a menace (only kidding)! Dusty loves gamboling around the honor oak rec ground and can be found chasing after - but never retrieving - her ball. She is 8 months old and will be anybody’s best friend. Say hi if you see us!



Oh, Dusty, you are gorgeous. Henry never brings his ball back either. I see other dogs haring back to their owners to return the ball and I give Henry a hard stare. He’s an embarrassment. :wink:


What a beautiful dog!


Yes she is a cutie - but less cute when she is rolling in fox poo (another favourite hobby) :wink:


Hey @BovillBunny thanks for sharing. Dusty is truly gorgeous. Got to love them when they are young and crazy.

As for the fox poo thing, I too have two dogs who occasionally love a good smearing. Gross!

Welcome to the forum too Sarah.


I’ve heard on the doogy grapevine that you should clean off the fox poo with ketchup. It’s neutralises the smell, apparently. Happy to report Henry has never (yet) done the fox poo roll.


Interesting tip. Only worry is that they both love tomato sauce, so one may eat the other one.


Suki and I can often be found at Blythe Hill / Ladywell Fields, she’s just about 4 months old now and looking for playful dogs!
