I saw this beautiful dog on the train into Leeds city station and chatted to the owner. He is called Mika and yes he is a samoyed as I thought and being 16 months old is still easily distracted. I asked his owner if I could take his photograph after we arrived into Leeds station. Being proud of her pet she agreed and his portrait can be seen above.
As you can see in the photo above his owner had a treat for him in an effort to keep him pointing in my direction. I am very pleased to have met Mika who has a very nice nature.
Oddly when I mentioned this to my good friend Bridget in St Paul, MN she was very surprised that dogs were allowed on trains here in the UK. Apparently in her home state this is not the case. I should point out that Bridget is the proud owner of an Australian cattle dog puppy called Angus.
