My story

I am walking with my Dogs Trust Loughborough dogs as a thank you for enabling me to adopt my lovely boys and in remembrance of my quirky, unique Fraggle who came from Dogs Trust in 2013 and gave me 6 years of love and laughter, with a few exasperating days thrown in!

It costs, on average, around £40 per day to look after each dog in their care so every penny counts.

Chico and Scampy thank you for helping other dogs like them to be cared for until they find their forever homes.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Dogs Trust.

The MapMyWalk app runs Monday to Sunday but I started out on 1st August so today is the end of my first 7 days. So far I am on target having completed 28.89 km (17.94 miles) and the dogs have done over half the distance with me. Now Leicester is out of localised lock down I hope Chico and I can introduce Scampy to some of the county's rural delights and rack up a few more miles on different dog walks!

I worked out how far the dogs and I walk average 'normal' day (they have little legs so I'm sure they take a lot more steps that I do! ) then I decided to set myself a target of doubling it as a minimum and walk 100km during August (more if I can although not all with the dogs) and back myself to do it by walking for charity.

I knew I'd get a head start as I'm leaflet dropping for a lost dog but in 2 days I've walked 10.57 km (11.5 km if I count the very late night dog walk on Friday to test out the app!).
