Fiona Reid is raising money for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home

9k for K9s Wagathon

My story

Hello and thanks for visiting our fundraising page. All charities have taken a massive financial hit over the last eighteen months because of COVID-19 as the usual fundraising activities have been impacted or cancelled, so this 9K for K9s event feels like a great way for lots of people to get involved and help. We love our walks together - our walks are the best part of any day - so we're taking this opportunity to walk and raise funds for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has the aim of raising £2,500 for the dogs in their care through this Wagathon, and as they say: 'Whether you raise £50 or £500, every single pound will make a difference.'

Thanks for stopping by, thanks for donating or sharing about this fundraiser, and look out for our walks over the weekend of 28 and 29 August. We're planning to split our 9K over two walks as a whole 9K is a bit too much for Bracken on these warmer days, and we'll be sharing our walks on Instagram stories over that weekend.

Thank you,

Fiona, Harris + Bracken x x x

Hello again on this bank holiday Monday. 👋🏻 There are tired paws here this morning as we did the second #Wagathon walk yesterday evening and it was a big one - 6.7km, so 12.2km in total. We headed back down the coast to one of our favourite walks - around St Baldred's Cradle and along Ravensheugh Sands.

This walk feels even longer than 6.7km as it's so varied, with lots of rocks to scramble over on the first stretch as we head along the rocky shore, then up to the grassy headland of St Baldred's Cradle, before following the path back to the woods and then to the long stretch of sandy beach at Ravensheugh. The beach sounds like the easy part, but soft sand is always a workout when you're a lowrider! (Or a human for that matter!) So this walk was a workout. More than that, it was filled with sniffs and a real sense of adventure.

Having said that I wasn't sure whether Bracken would be joining us for this one as he was really tired after Saturday's walk (and after a whole week of long walks during our hols), he was definitely not about to be left behind yesterday when we were getting ready to go. And we took our cue from how he was feeling - if he'd stayed in bed and refused to budge then fair enough! But he was up, at the door, and ready. A year ago, last August, we couldn't have taken him on this walk as his breathing was too laboured, so it really does feel great (that's an understatement!) to see him stronger and healthier (and breathing more easily) again.

So our Wagathon walks are behind us but the fundraiser remains open. We really appreciate the donations for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. And if you'd like to follow along with yesterday's walk. part one is now on our Instagram stories, and we'll be sharing part two later.

And if you missed part one, from Saturday, it's on our highlights.

Thank you again,

Fiona, Harris + Bracken x x x

Hello 👋🏻 and hope you're enjoying your Sunday so far. I just wanted to say a warm thank you for the support and donations so far for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. 🙏🏻 This is much appreciated!

We did the first part of our Wagathon walk last night at John Muir Country Park - it's shared on our Instagram stories in case you want to follow along - and walked 5.5km, so it was a good first leg of our 9km walk. It was a gorgeous calm night, and the sun was setting over the bay as we walked. Bracken was really tired - we've been on hols this week and the lads have been walking a lot more than usual, so we may have reached the stage of the week where Bracken just needs to rest his paws. We'll see how he is today but our Wagathon round two might be solo with Harris. We'll see. Look out for that later.

Thanks again for your support, and have a great Sunday!
