Tell us a bit more about you – the human
I am the proud dog mommy of Bennie and Ollie, These two doggies are my everything, I contracted a life threatening illness two years ago that almost killed me and if ot wasn’t for these two I believe that I would have not survived, I had to still get up every day and look after them and they thought me that i had to push through as they depended on me.
Why did you take part in the 99k for Canines initiative?
Because I wanted to raise awareness for Dog’s Trust.
What have been the major benefits for you of the challenge?
The fact that we have helped even one dog with what we raised is amazing amd the fact that people may have actually looked at Dog’s trust aand potentially donated or adopted after seeing our posts etc makes me very happy.
What do you feel have been the biggest benefits for your dog throughout the challenge
They lost weight (lol) amd made loads of new friends.
Fundraising target: €200
Now the important part – The Doggy details
Tell us all about Bennie and Ollie
Bennie is my Jack Russell he is 12 years young and an amazing little guy, he brings joy to every one he meets and he doesn’t ask for much except to be loved, He just loves cuddles and his walks.
Ollie my Chihuaha is three years young and is 3kgs of mischief and craziness,
He loves his bed and beware to the person who tries to take him out of it, When he is awake,he loves nothing more than annoying his brother Bennie, He takes great pleasure from pestering him, He loves to guard the garden from predators such as robins, when it comes to pidgeons he gets his bigger bro to scare them off.
On weekends Bennie and Ollie can be found fighting for the greyhounds at protests and delivering food to rescues that need it.
