We are still going

Halfway through September and we are still walking! The weather has been amazing this month,  please keep donating to our page all up 17790 participants took part  and up to now we have raised$1,595,999 fingers crossed we will get to $1,600,000 by the end of September which will mean we have raised enough money to train 32 new Guide Dogs which would be awesome!

We did it!!!

Woohoo that is our 1st pawgust done! 17290 PAWticipants walking and so far we have raised $1,564,439, that means we have raised enough money to train 31 guide dogs what an awesome job! Fundraising stays open until the 30th September so please keep those donations rolling in. This time last year I was getting excited, as there was only two more sleeps and I got to see Luna for the first time. Then we had 3 weeks of training together,on the 20 September our training was complete and Luna was officially my 3rd guide dog. That is where our new adventures started as a team 

Day 30

Last day of pawgust, this last week of August the weather has been superb every day sunshine and blue sky springtime weather. This month has had some of the coldest days of winter. Luna and I have walked rain hail or shine lol, neither of us like walking in the rain but we did it for pawgust and last weekend was the coldest weekend ever that we had to walk in, I had to even wear gloves it was that cold. Luna and I Will be back again next year hopefully will smash our records from this year fingers crossed! You can still make donations to our page right up to the end of September and we will keep walking each day but maybe not in the rain lol! To everyone who has donated to our page so far from the bottom of our hearts we thank you xx   

Day 28

only 48 hours to go . Another gorgeous day, The last five days have been wonderful almost spring weather yay! Luna and I love walking in weather like this. Pawgust is almost over, I’m a little bit chuffed how much money we have raised for the first time we’ve done this. Let’s keep going!

Day 26

Today is international dog day so WOOf, WOOF and big tail wags from Luna to all of the other dogs. Big thanks to all who have donated so far, we have raised enough money to train 1 Guide Dog for 45 days woohoo! how pawsome is that! Let’s keep going and please donate to our page all those dog owners out there 

Day 25

Today was an absolute gorgeous day almost spring weather bring it on! We both enjoy walking when the weather is as great as today 

Day 24 week 4 woohoo

Today was a gorgeous day walking, sunshine and warm, bit of a cool breeze specially around the sports fields. However  much better than what the freezing  weekend was. On the Home straight now for this month woohoo! Fingers crossed the good weather keeps up like today 

Day 23

Oh my god this weekend has been definitely the most coldest all winter? At least today was a bit better then yesterday was the worst day ever no snow but definitely felt like it. Today   the sun was out but it was bloody cold walking First time I had to wear gloves even,  fingers crossed it gets warmer tomorrow  lol

Day 23 & Luna’s anniversary

Happy 1st anniversary as a guide dog Luna. Lunas group was the first group of dogs in NSW  to be boarded with a family for the last 3 months of their training  rather than be in the kennels at the Guide Dog Centre. To Luna’s trainer Haylee, Foster mum/puppy raiser Karen, Home borders Aria and Rees.  Thank you for all what you did so that Luna became my guide dog, I will be forever grateful for what you all did and two guide dogs NSW/act thank you for matching  such a amazing dog with me!

Day 21 & 3 weeks down woohoo!

3 weeks completed yay! We did 14km all up today, got both our walks in in between the rain so lucky! On this day last year Luna graduated as a guide dog but Sunday will be her actual graduation date. This time last year I was getting excited as it wasn’t going to be long before I got to meet her. 

A big thanks!

Wow we keep exceeding our fundraising goal, our first was at $600, then $1500, then  $2000 now fingers crossed we can raise $4000. Big  thanks to everyone who has donated so far. big tail wags and puppy kisses from Luna. Please keep those donations coming in! It costs  $68.50 a day to train 1 dog  and every dollar raised from  pawgust goes in to  training more Guide Dogs like Luna  

Day 20

Our walk started with the sun shining half way threw rain arrived and the sun came out again at the end got to love the winter weather lol I don’t think so! 

Day 19

Day 19 done another 13km, the forecast over the next few days is for cold conditions definitely was cold and windy walking today! Oh well we will just suck it up and keep walking lol 

Day 18

Another 13km done woohoo, so much nicer to be walking when the sun comes out when you are walking!   We are so lucky to have such good walking paths in Mudgee 

Day 15 halfway yay

This time last year Luna was in her final week of her training and what an amazing guide dog she is!

Day 14 yea 2 weeks completed

2 weeks done and another wet day to walk in it. So on with my wet weather gear on with your raincoat Luna let’s go!  Any other time if it was raining we wouldn’t be doing it that’s for sure,but we’re doing it for pawgust. This reminds me when I got my first guide dog Winn, and when I was doing my training with her we had to walk in the rain, back then all the guide dogs and our training was done in Melbourne. In my class I would be the one whenever it was raining, i would be the one who had to walk in it First. We did 13km today in the rain And the only breaks we got from it was under the Lawson Park Bridge and under the bridge to Glenwillow sports field.  I reckon that deserves a donation to my page for sure!  

11 days done

A lovely day to walk with the sun out shining again woohoo here’s hoping the good weather shines on us when we go walking for the rest of the month! Please donate to our page so we can keep raising money for Guide Dogs and the amazing job that the dogs do it takes  $50000 to train one guide dog but the freedom and independence the dogs give us is priceless so please dig deep and donate to my page if you can 

Day 8

Yea got our walk in without getting rained on! This time last year Luna was in the last couple weeks of her guide dog training and I was getting excited to meeting her

Day 7 1 week done

It’s raining so on with Luna’s raincoat and on with my waterproof Close let’s go! Luna doesn’t like walking in the rain neither do I but we are doing it for Pawgust, Luna doesn’t like getting her feet wet which is good so I don’t have to walk through puddles lol  Only 6.7kms today that is enough in the rain that’s for sure!

Day 6 of pawgust

Luna and I enjoying the gorgeous days we’ve had for the last six days, so while the weather is good we will clock up the hour's and kms.   We are so lucky to have such good walking Paths  to click up the Kilometres hoping to do 12km per daywoohoo fingers crossed the weather will be good for us   

please help me to raise money for Guide Dogs as they have made a huge difference to my life. Luna is my 3rd Guide Dog she also is a sponsored dog, she graduated last August. So To thank her sponsors and GuideDogs I am raising funds for them

luna graduated as a guide dog on the 23rd of august last year. So to celebrate her  anniversary we are going to help to raise vital funds for Guide Dogs Australia.   Luna was one of a group of three sponsored dogs in NSW  2018,  to her sponsors I thank you for sponsoring her. the freedom, independence and confidence you gain by having a guide dog is priceless!    i have had 3 guide dogs now Winn, Leah & Luna, all such amazing dogs! Luna  and I are taking part in PAWGUST 2020 on behalf of Guide Dogs Australia because I'm passionate about helping Guide Dog puppies in training and supPAWting people in our community living with sight loss like me. During the month of August, Luna and I will be walking at least 30 minutes a day for 30 days. that's where you come in! By supPAWting Luna and I, you are helping to raise much needed funds for Guide Dog puppies in training. Did you know it costs in excess of $50,000 to breed, raise and train just one Guide Dog pup?! PAWlease, will you show your supPAWt by donating to me today? Anything you can give will help. With your supPAWt we can change people’s lives by helping current Guide Dog puppies in training. Plus, it will also inspire me and my pooch to complete our 30 minutes each day! Paws out!
