A few months ago Scruff took on the challenge of sponsoring Shadow and Graham on their hiking journey across the Pyrennes in aid of the Veterans Charity. Here is an update on how one dog (Shadow) and his man (Graham) are doing on their trek so far -
Graham and Shadow have had to face very tough times with bad weather and illness. Graham developed a terrible bladder infection but thankfully managed to get meds sorted, and after several days rest they are pushing on.
They are currently in Andorra.
Shadow has been great. A slight issue with one paw which has cleared up fine and he is really enjoying the adventure.
The total raised so far - near the £700 marque. If you would like to sponsor Shadow and Graham in aid of Veterans Charity, you can give via their Just Giving site - www.justgiving.com/grahampovey
