I bet you never thought the day would arrive, but at last, it’s finally here.

Perhaps you’re in the tiny, tiny, utterly small minority of people in the entire world who are wondering what in the world of heck is Wee Dafty Dog Day?

Well, let me tell you…

A Brief History of Wee Dafty Dog Day

Grandma was a proud Scot who kept her gorgeous Perthshire accent rolling despite moving down to England as a young mother.

As a child, whenever she’d arrive at our house, the first thing she’d say – every single time – would be, “And where’s that wee dafty dog the day?”

That would be Tipsy, our little Jack Russell. She used to wag herself in circles whenever Grandma arrived, happily bouncing off any piece of furniture within a one-meter stumble-zone.

She was named Tipsy by my little sister because of her apparent drunken gamblings when she got excited. Her rear end used to curl from one side to the other – out of control thanks to a tail-wagging speed that should have seen her hovering.

Not the Only Wee Dafty Dog

I now know that every dog is either/sometimes/often/always (delete as appropriate) a wee dafty dog.

That’s why we need a Wee Dafty Dog Day to celebrate the daftness we all love so much.

Photos Please!

Just pop a photo in the comments below of your favourite wee dafty, and you’re in with a shout of winning a multipack of your dog’s favourite treats.

The competition ends Midnight Easter Monday, so get that photo in now and…

Let the daftery abound!

My dog Harley wears a muzzle on countryside walks in the spring early summer to protect the young wildlife that we often come across. Last summer he rolled in this field and when he stood up he had hay all over his face. I told him to stand still and I took the photo. He not only looked daft but was daft enough to stand quite still whilst I took the photo, I have added another photo so you can see what he normally looks like.

Here is my wee dafty dog Mysti who is now 16months old. I also have two other English Cocker Spaniels, Flossie who is nearly 14yrs old and Dinky, Flossie’s son who is 10yrs old. Flossie is a retired Therapy Dog who has worked alongside me in my Counselling practice for 10yrs so I needed somepup to take over the reigns from her – cue Mysti. However, what I hadn’t counted on was the ENORMITY of Mysti’s personality! She is without a doubt, pawsonality plus! She loves nothing more than to be a “Doofus” as I call her when she’s being daft which often involves being “chatted back to”! She is nuts about chasing the ball but can be just as much of a goofball without much assistance! I already love her so much and am so confident she’ll be an amazing Co-Therapist in my Counselling practice!

My Airedale Arwen is 5 months old and is as daft as a brush! She forgets she has giant paws to grow into and just falls over them…. a lot, and she also eats anything she can find even if it makes her incredible sick, like the entire block of Red Leicester (1kilo) and lay on her back for 2 hours just silent! But when the food comes out later she will try her luck again daft dog. She takes on creatures bigger than herself, and then realises she can’t win- unfazed she still continues to voice her opinions, and finally she does stick her daft noise where it doesn’t belong and sneezes ALOT!!

This is our wee dafty dog Arlo who wags his whole body when he is happy, loves tummy tickles and is so incredibly clumsy. He is such a softy that loves cuddles and doesn’t get bored of being carried around like a baby by the kids.

Wee dafty Hatty is 6 months old, she will sleep anywhere. Much to older sister Heidi’s embarrassment. They struggled to get on at first, now they don’t stop playing until they crash out, together.

This is Henry Jupiter , a new addition to the sausage pack . So far has a taste for your grain free poultry treats along side the duck nibbles . He’s currently pulling a wee daft face after encountering a carrot for the first time followed by his close up with the camera.

This is my wee dafty dog. Isla only arrived (from a rescue shelter in Spain) last Saturday but is already completely in charge (of the cats, the other dog and, most definitely, the humans). And she has the best bed head ever.

I have three wee dafty dogs who bounce off the furniture when having a mad five minutes or if anyone dares enter their domain. They love everyone and will do anything to try and get a cuddle. I wouldn’t be without them. I love watching them chase each other around the garden. But they’ve only got to hear the sound of me picking up the container with their favourite B&B treats in to turn into little angels…

This is our wee dafty dog Ben. Ben is nearly 5 years old but we’ve only had him for 2 years after we adopted him. Ben was aggressive, snappy and scared of everyone at first but with lots of love, attention and training he is now the friendliest, cuddliest and most lovable dog! He too runs himself in circles when my Perthshire Gran comes to visit! 😃

Meet Buddy!

I was nagged to foster this beautiful boy in lockdown 1. He lasted 24 hours as a foster. He’s now mine!

I was struggling on my own in general and had been on medication for years due to mental health issues. Lockdown wasn’t helping

This daft sod has some into my life and turned it around. He’s the softest most loving thing and can’t get enough of being brushed.

Since having him last May, i’m now medication free and feel like a completely different human being. He’s brought me structure and a purpose.

This pic is one of favourites as he just seems to love me!

This is our Dotty who lives up to her name! 17 weeks old and loving every new experience. This is her playing one of her favourite games “carrot in the box”. She’s so friendly and playful we don’t get far fast on a walk. She’s discovered streams now as well as puddles and mud so doesn’t always look this clean and tidy .

This is Otis, he lives life to the full when he goes to the dog park. Says hello to every owner, plays with every dog and jumps in every puddle. If there’s a stream he’s in it. When he gets tired he belly flops into the mud and chills for a few seconds before firing off again. This man has no regrets in life and we love him.
