img2[1]I’m so pleased that you’ve seen my blog. Welcome to my v. v. v big tail!

The following blog will tell the story of how a young, orphan puppy – from West Cumbria, in the United Kingdom – gains fame and fortune as he walks  1,000 miles and climbs the 282 Scottish Mountains over 3.000 feet,  that make up the Munros. He, an agile young collie called Ben, and his mistress – a creaking, aging human named B – are to spend many hours in some of the most wonderful and  remote parts of the UK: walking, camping, eating, drinking, writing… and growing ever closer and closer.

This is our story, from a canine perspective for a change.

The human side of things is very slow, but you can try to access it here and join the group:  Facebook Group

As we go, B & me aim to raise £32,000 for charity. I’m not allowed any of this, not even a tiny morsel of a treat; how hard is that? The money will be spilt between a charity for search and rescue dogs, and Canine Partners, which trains assistance dogs to  support disabled people. This is Bumble and Sandra’s story. I am in love with Bumble.

There are film clips of the clever canines at work below.  If, after watching them, you think what amazing creatures we dogs really are, you could always drop me a penny or two just here :

  1. Ben, please be careful, if you are ever in need of a rest or peaceful holiday there is respite in Devon.
    Where the landscape is rolling hills and moors. I bet you love the sea. We have lots of sea.
    Good luck. We will naturally sponsor you and promise to be generous.
    Try not to run too far ahead of your mistress as she will need to pause to rest those creaking bones.
    I think you are a wonderful dog and will make Bea very proud. x

    • Dear Bill,

      It’s so exciting that you are reading my blog. I makes all the hard work worthwhile. What with having to sychronise four paws and all that spelling. I haven’t really got my head around proper grammer yet but maybe that will come in time.
      Thank you again
      Love Ben


    • Thank you for leaving me a comment. I’m really pleased you like my blog.
      Sorry it has taken me so long to reply but your comment went into my spam box and I have just noticed it.

      I have no idea how to get on Yahoo News and amazed to know I was, just being a dog. What larks.

      Good luck with your blogging.

      Love Ben.
