He has lots of fun walking with the mother and baby, but he always gets distracted by a duck, a cat or something else.

Mr Davies is an absolutely fantastic name for a dog, I just feel sad that I don't have a spare boy dog in need of a name. Mr Davies is an enthusiastic dog who lives next door to the baby.
