It’s been a busy couple of months for Sarah and Teddy as the deadline of the end of January loomed to complete their Running Down Dementia Challenge. And, they finished the 180 mile challenge!
They spent 37.5 hours in total to complete the distance, that’s 386,706 steps to raise money and awareness of the links between hearing loss and dementia. It was a tough challenge, but we know that the event has encouraged people to have a hearing test and hopefully it has helped to spread the word about the connection between hearing loss and dementia.
We’ve raised over £300 so far, it’s not too late to sponsor Teddy and Sarah. They have had to set up a new page as the original page expired because of the time off for injury. The new fund raising link is: https://give.everydayhero.com/uk/run-down-dementia or you can speak to Sarah on reception as she is also collecting cash donations.
We would like to say BIG thank you to all our clients who have sponsored Sarah and Teddy, it certainly makes a big difference to motivation on those cold winter days when you just want to stay under the duvet/in dog basket.
Buddy has not had a good couple of months and has been back and forward to the vet’s with an upset tummy, which we are yet to find the reason for. He has had some more tests at the vet in the last week with the hope of understanding what might be causing the issue. It hasn’t, however, dampened his enthusiasm for life or appetite and he has only missed finishing his dinner a couple of times. He remains full of energy and often finds himself in trouble with his older brother for not following the clinic rules.
With Trevor’s studies keeping him busy, they are spending a couple of days a week at their doggy day care. Catherine, who looks after them, says that of all the dogs that come to her as a pair, ours are the closest spending time together playing and generally causing trouble. Teddy really rules the roost and Buddy does look to him to ensure he’s staying in line. They love doggy day care and it’s great for them to spend time with other dogs and let their hair (fur) down for a few hours.
