Muddy Dog Challenge

June 16th, 2018

Tinker and I had a fantastic day , on the 10th June! We took part in the Muddy Dog Challenge to raise money and support for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. It was the first one of a few of these events and took place in the grounds of the spectacular Wollaton Hall, an Elizabethan mansion, on a hill in Wollaton Park, near Nottingham.

The first group started at 9:30 am and then 10-15 people were sent off in batches every ten minutes thereafter. Tinker and I were in the second group, and after a short warm-up we shot off! I was so impressed with Tinker’s speed … normally she is just comfortably, slowly trotting next to me (maybe because I am too slow for her? Lol), but because she was running with other dogs she was more keen. On the track, there were 14 under and over obstacles, like a dog maze of muddy tunnels, a doggy ball pit, a tyre wall, A-frame, trampolines and lots of other fun obstacles! During the run, we both had a chance to refresh with plenty of drinking stations.

While we were running, our stand was in the capable hands of my lovely friend Sam. When they showed us our stand location that morning, we were really excited, next to the vegan food stand and not far from the loos … how perfect is that?!

If you fancy doing something different with your four-legged friend and supporting a good cause, don’t hesitate to visit the Battersea event page, there are still Muddy Dog Challenges running across various locations until the end of September: https://muddydog.battersea.org.uk/all-locations
