I also took Lewis and Islay into Tynemouth and we spent some time in the Castle Moat before heading up through the village on our way home. These two love being out and about no matter what the weather!
Flash is a Staffy and having never owned or walked a Staffy I have to confess I was unsure if I should even take Flash on. Everything I thought I knew about the breed I had seen on the news or read in the paper and I have to confess to being a little nervous but upon meeting him I immediately fell in love with him. He's a really brilliant, loving and intelligent dog and I know I say this about all of my dogs but he really is one of my favourites! He's 5 years old and has spent 3 of those years in the cat and dog shelter. If you've ever been to a cat and dog shelter you'll know that most of the dogs there are Staffy's and are, for the most part overlooked by potential owners but his current owner didn't overlook Flash and they've been together since November last year.
Here's a few pics of Flash from recent walks. He walks pretty well on the lead and responds very well to basic commands such as sit and stay, he gets on very well with the rest of the pack and yesterday I let him off the lead for the first time and his recall was excellent. I had him out today to Marden Quarry, which he seemed to enjoy and I'm looking forward to seeing him again on Thursday when I have him next.
