It was a present from The TOG team (click Mickey,) to thank me for sharing my blog on their fantastic web site; wasn’t that jolly nice. As well as making me look fabulous all the time they are also brilliant for wearing in hot weather, especially after being dipped in a lovely cool mountain stream. Continue reading →
Friends, collies and Barky Bark (translation below),
Thank you everyone for entering into the spirit of my Christmas competition. Do drop me a comment below if you have enjoyed playing and if you have any ideas for future competitions. Continue reading →
… and a very warm welcome to my dog blog. I’m so pleased that you’ve found me. I do hope you will enjoy reading about the trials and tribulations of my great adventure. I would love it if you joined in the saga by dropping me a line in the comments box. As you will see I’m going to need all the support I can get.
this my v. v. v big tail!
I started my blog in 2015 as a young orphan puppy, from West Cumbria in the United Kingdom. It records how – by walking over 1,000 miles and climbing the 282 Scottish mountains over 3.000 feet (The Munros) – I aim to raise £32,000 for two v. v. v good causes. I have promised not to use any of the dosh for even a tiny morsel of a treat, how hard is that? Me, an agile young collie and my person – a creaky aging thing (called B) – aim to complete the task by the time I am 10 and she is 70. We 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.
The money we raise will be spilt between a charity for search and rescue dogs, and Canine Partners, which trains assistance dogs to support disabled people. These dogs are sooooooo clever. 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, and you wanted to support their work, you could always drop me a penny or two for my fundraising, just here :
