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.

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 :
