A New Arrival

I am delighted to say that Heidii (from the Kornried E litter) has arrived in the UK and is our 96th dog. Welcome Heidii. We hope you will be a very happy puppy.

2 more dogs

We are delighted to have news that there are two more Entlebuchers in the UK than we previously knew about. Bolishes Happy Ranch (Red) and Brown Lenny Happy Ranch came to the UK last autumn. That brings our numbers to 95. Wonderful news and welcome to you both.

Wednesday 24th October 2017 – The Embassy

Wilma, Bella and Sybil about to set off

Cracker gave us her mileage from yesterday which took us around Regent’s Park to our meeting point. There should then have been five for the final walk, but poor Salvo and Izzy were struck down with gastro-enteritis overnight and were not well enough to travel to London. After all their hard work it was very sad they couldn’t be there and we send them our best wishes for a speedy recovery. That meant Sybil, Bella and Wilma were our representatives and walked the final stage from Regent’s Part to the Embassy on a beautiful sunny autumn day.

With the Ambassador

Our welcome at the Embassy was lovely and we spend a happy twenty minutes talking about the breed and our work to help Heidi. Thank you to all

the Embassy staff who helped to set this up, it was a great day for us and we were delighted to present the Ambassador with a picture from the UK Club to mark the occasion.

Thank you to all the dogs who have taken part in the walk and to all our supporters. We are still taking donations at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/walkforheidi  so please do send in any sponsorship money or donations. It will all go to enable Heidi to have the final operation she needs.

Tuesday 24th October 2017 – Penultimate Stage

Today we set out on the final stage before going to the Embassy in London tomorrow. Salvo and Izzy added 2.15 miles each. Then Dickens adding 4.4 miles took over to take us to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. Sybil and Basil added 1.5 miles each to take us to Tower Bridge Road. Babeli, being a very cute but slightly independent puppy, chose to take us a different route with her 2.6 miles to get everyone to where we are meeting up tomorrow. She finished her stage at Clerkenwell before pawing over to Cleo. Cleo used her 2.6 miles to get us to London Zoo at the northern end of Regent’s Park. And that is where Bella, Wilma, Sybil, Izzy and Salvo will meet tomorrow to walk together for the very last stage of the walk.

Sunday 22nd October 2017 – A Quiet Day

With many of the dogs on the stand at Discover Dogs today there were not many walkers. Salvo and Izzy set out and did 2.1 miles each. Then Dickens took over and added 6.25 miles, which was further than he’d planned because of a detour as a result of some sheep being fenced in with an electric fence. Finally we have a new walker joining the walk for Heidi as Cracker (red paw print) joins us to add 4 miles to our total and gets us as far as Sittingbourne.

Saturday 21st October – Back on English Soil

Today’s walks have brought us back onto English soil. Dickens has added 8.55 miles over the last two days and got us back onto dry land. Wilma, Alfie and Shadow then each did 1.3 miles and Salvo and Izzy did 5.2 miles each. Which means we end the night in Kent having just past Canterbury.

Friday 20th October 2017 – seventy six miles to go

Salvo and Izzy took over the swim and added 2.9 miles each. Wilma added 1.3 miles and then Bella, Heidi and Babeli each did 2.65 miles. Basil and Sybil then added a mile each which means we are still stranded in the Channel but at least we are in sight of land.

We’ve had more of the sponsorship money come in today too. We’re up to £1460 including everything that has come in so far. There is still time to help us get to our £2000 target –
