In December 2019 we held a competition inviting Dog owners to enter their four legged friends into a competition to become the face of City Hospice’s charity dog walk, Wag this Way 2020. We were thrilled to receive so many amazing entries.
We interviewed Sarah Jones owner of Pepsi who came runner-up in our Wag this Way competition.
“My mother was diagnosed with Cancer and unfortunately there was not time to put any homecare into place. I know the one thing she wanted to do was be at home, although I cannot fault the hospital, I know how important it is to many to be able to be in their own home with their families. City Hospice do amazing work for so many people, not just medical but also emotional support. Any support I can give to help fundraise to enable them to continue their work I am happy to do.
I saw the walk being advertised I thought it was a wonderful idea and wanted to join in with my dogs. When I saw the competition I thought it was a great way to help raise awareness and was an easy way for me and Pepsi to help. Plus Pepsi is a bit of a poser so was right up his street!
I have had Pepsi for five and a half years now. When I first had him he didn’t enjoy walks at all. After investigating we found he had a number of allergies that were causing blisters and pain in his paws. Now he is on medication he loves going for walks and meeting people, he is a proper little character and makes me smile every day.
I am looking forward to the atmosphere, there is nothing better than dogs and their humans all meeting up. There is a brilliant energy, and its always fun to meet other dog loving people who understand the wacky things you do for your dogs.
People should definitely sign up to this event because it is for an amazing cause and it’s going to be a great day out no matter what the weather”.
