Step Out for Stroke

HamishMaster has asked me to thank all those who kindly sponsored us both to walk in the Step Out for Stroke event at Glamis Castle today. With your help we raised over £200 for the Stroke Association.  It was a lovely sunny day, although there was a strong wind which blew dust into my eyes. As you can see from the picture below, Master got round this problem by posing as a mafia gangster.

There was a good supply of biscuits to keep up my strength – this also helped to distract my minglamisd from the pain of walking on the stones they have laid down outside the castle. Things got better in that department when we got out into the woods.  It is always a pleasure for me as an aging whippet to find myself at the centre of adoring pats and rubbings – I can tell you there was plenty of that going on today.   Though I’ve never felt purple is my colour, I was proud to wear a Stroke Association t-shirt for the event.

Thank you for your support.
