The 25th of June saw me participating in this year’s London Pride, leading the mixed walking group featuring Puppy Pride & Pup Social. This year, I was again accompanied by Caz and Wayne from E-Stim Systems, with Caz holding my lead while Colin was taking photographs.

With a change in starting point this year, we had to find our way to a different station on the Underground. As we were getting in to the lifts at Regent’s Park, a member of the public in the queue behind us recognised me from the TV documentary, so while waiting on the lift, and travelling up, we had a chat about pup stuff. Part of the reason for being so early was there had been a change in system this year, and walkers were to be issued Wristbands by the group organisers, so we arrived early to pick up our wrist bands.

Next on the agenda was to go and get some water and snacks for the duration of the wait and the walk to make sure we didn’t dehydrate etc. as we were walking around. As we wandered off to get a drink and a bite to eat in the nearest cafe,ย I was stopped on the way by someone who recognised me from the TV documentary again.

We assembled at the new starting point, and like usual, we waited… and waited… and waited. Eventually, the group set off down the road following the rest of the parade participants. Much like normal, this was very stop & start, but during the time a number of people watching at the sides kept recognising me and shouted at me, and that lasted the whole route.

As we finished, we gathered for a whole group shot of the pups that had participated, and it was at this point the sheer volume of pups & handlers that had participated became apparent with the size of the assembled group!

After goodbyes were said, we retired to town and Five Guys with me still in my pup outfit – it’s just a shame the O2 store I went in to had stopped the “Be More Dog” campaign!

Greenwich – Puppy Walk – April 2016

Way back in April, we set off from home to head towards Greenwich to go for a wander around with the group from PuppyPride – deciding to travel by train, and perhaps surprisingly for me, I was travelling completely unchanged. Thankfully, there was a hotel to change in so we made our way there to meet up with the others and get off on the walk.

We set off on the walk towards the Cutty Sark, and then headed through the Old Navy College grounds towards Greenwich park – stopping on multiple occasions to take photographs and to chat to members of the public. One key moment for me was playing with a chap blowing bubbles on the way in to the park – pups just love chasing bubbles but then they go pop *paws over eyes*.

As we wandered through the park, we meandered up to the Royal Observatory and ended up in their cafe for a drink and two slices of chocolate cake – I’m a greedy pup! We started to head back down, stopping for photographs and chats – all the time enjoying just being out in puppy gear.

Then, it was soon time to head home – and I travelled home as Spot on the Docklands Light Railway (in the drivers seat), then the tube and also towards the mainline train to home…

The only thing that can really show off a puppy walk is some pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

Puppy Walk – London Mar 2016

On the Sunday following Fetishbound & Collared, I was taking part in a puppy walk in London – a chance to wander around dressed as a pup in the heart of London… and when ever possible I’m not one to turn down a chance to be a puppy *bounds round excited* ๐Ÿ™‚

After checking the arrangements for the meeting location, it was time to set off on our journey. The weather in the morning wasn’t very practical for travelling in Lycra though – it was a fairly cool day and so I had to travel in domestic attire ๐Ÿ™ On arriving at the venue, we met up with the organiser of the walk and waited for other pups to turn up before heading off on the route… as the set off time approached, the pups went off to get changed, and then it was time to set off on our walk *tugs on lead*

Our walking route took us from the meeting location via New Scotland Yard, Westminster Abbey, Parliament Square and eventually ending up in Victoria Palace Gardens. On route round we also found a cycle shop …. ohhhh so much lycra to look at … unfortunately through the window as it was shut!!! Due to being out in the public we were stopping along the route at many places to pose for photos or to talk to members of the public. The ending of the walk in a park meant that there was also time to play some fetch ๐Ÿ™‚

I ended up doing a fair bit of the walk on all 4s which was great fun… unfortunately, by the end my knees slightly hurt, and this was my fault since I knew there would be loads of pictures I wore my softer knee pads – which was a mistake … I should have realised we were outside and so should have worn my hard wearing pads. However, it was great to do the walk and barking at passing members of the public was great fun as was the interaction with them in general.

Oh, and one other memorable moment on-route was when we met a small bio-dog, who at first wasn’t sure of us as we looked dog, but didn’t smell dog … We were happy to keep walking by, so as not to cause any trouble, but the owner was persistent saying that it’s fine, and eventually the little dog was happy to be with us – so much so that it wanted to follow us on more of the walk. After a short while, we were stopped for more photos, and so the lady and her dog carried on and left us to it.

Here’s a handful of images from the walk for you to enjoy

London Pride – 2015

Sorry this has been delayed, it’s been a hectic few weeks doing lots!

Saturday 27th June saw the London Pride parade taking place, and this puppy was out walking. Unlike last year, the weather was a little nicer – with glorious sunshine and warm temperatures compared to the rain of last year.

We set off from home, with the intention of getting the train and that Iโ€™d travel in as a pup… which meant I had to change in the station car park and then board the train *wags*. Iโ€™d decided that, as much as I wanted to do full hood and paws, this was probably not a sensible idea due to the heat.

The puppy assembly point was near the o2 โ€œBe More Dogโ€ bus which meant the opportunity for a photo was just too tempting.

After the picture wast taken and before the walk, I went off to find a tree – 25 minutes later standing in a queue, I hadnโ€™t had the chance to use one so I had to come back to assemble for the parade, and get fully kitted up. Then we waited… and waited… and waited.

During the waiting period, someone threw me a bag of chocolate buttons, which I tore my way in to, but unfortunately, the heat had got the better of them and theyโ€™d just turned in to a big chocolatey puddle ๐Ÿ™ *whine*

Eventually we got a chance to set off, but progress down Baker Street was quite slow – with lots of stops and starts, so I was alternating from 4 legs to 2 legs, and due to the heat, I curled up lying down on the road, as it was too hot to be on all-4’s

We then turned on to Oxford Street and everything started moving that little bit quicker, and again, I was alternating from 4 to 2 legs – barking all the way.

Somewhere down Oxford Street, we gained a blow up football which a few of the pups started playing with at various slow points during the route – for some reason, it seemed to keep re-appearing with us even if we ended up throwing it in to the crowd! *wags*. I also found a cardboard tube, which I was using as a big stick, chewing my way through it … but after a while, I gave it to another pup, who put it down ๐Ÿ™ … A different blow up beachball got thrown at me, which I went to pick up with my mouth, as all good pups should do, but it went flat … *puppy eyes* it wasn’t me … … honest!

The rest of the walk was uneventful, to one extent – with a lot of walking and barking – with the heat making it slightly unbearable at times! This also meant that I had to keep alternating between being on all 4s or walking on 2 legs. A fun but hot parade making myself known to the crowds ๐Ÿ™‚

After the parade, we did a few photos then went to join the rest of the pups in a nearby park for a quick lunch. After a quick bite to eat, I got re-pupped up to head for Nandos with my hood and paws, when a small ball arrived at my front paws. It came from a small child who was shouting happily ‘dog’ at their mum. i bopped the ball bck, whereupon it got thrown back to me with a happy ‘dog’ from the child. A photo with mum and the tot followed, before heading off for Nandos. Both Marbles and I rode the tube as pups, sitting in front of the door much to the amusement of other passengers.

After the Nandos, I headed home, on the train, fully dressed up as Spot… we took a stopping service so that thereโ€™d be quite a few people getting on and off the train, but it actually turned out to be remarkably quiet ๐Ÿ™

Yet again, another fantastic day out – and with more pups than previous years as well.

And here’s a pic of all the pups that attended from @lonchastitysub ๐Ÿ™‚
