A perfect end

Vespa did incredibly well for Guide Dog week and he and his pals raised over £600 on Saturday at Specsavers in Galashiels, which, added to the over £500 that the pups raised at Tesco last week and time spent on the Guide Dog information table at Tesco on Thursday, where more was raised, was pretty amazing. The fundraisers were very pleased.

Of course Vespa couldn't really have cared less. What he loved was being allowed to be petted and spoken to and he seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time on his back with his legs waving in the air trying to entice his pals to play with him. The paying public just thought he was cute!

Because of having spent the week having to do his fundraising bit and having to behave, we went to Bowmont Forest yesterday to have a runabout with his pal, Zappa. The dogs had a wonderful time and did boy dog play fighting and rolling over and over in muddy puddles, which was fine for Vespa as he's black, but Zappa looked decidedly filthy by the end of the hour.

What was great is that both dogs then spent the whole afternoon and evening asleep.

A perfect end to a pretty good week.
