The 2010 DoitforCharity Santa 5km run will take place on Sunday 5th December 2010.  I’ll be running in a Santa costume and will post pictures after the run!  Yes, I’m willing to make a fool out of myself for the benefit of the Labradoodle Trust!

I will be running in order to raise money for the Labradoodle Trust, which is the most fantastic institution – they allowed me to adopt our beloved Barney!  This will be my first ever 5K run, which I’ve been training for since late August.  As you may have read earlier, Barney & I are doing the Couch to 5K program three days a week at 5:30am…so he’s learning how to run a 5K too!


The run will take place at Greenwich Park just a few miles from the centre of London. Greenwich Park is one of the largest parks in the London area and is a wonderful setting for the 5km run!

How to donate?

You can sign up by making a comment in this post & I’ll email you after the run with my address for a check or bank details if you’d like to do it directly.  I may try to get a PayPal thing up and running if that is easier for people too.  Thank you for any donations you can make!

Even if you cannot donate, thank you for any positive encouragement you can send my way!

A word from Barney:  Thank you for helping out.  Without the Labradoodle Trust, I would not have met my new mummy and daddy.  I lurve them very, very much.  I want other doodles whose parents couldn’t take care of them or didn’t want them to have the same opportunity as I did.  So please donate!  Tanks!

Run run as fast as you can!

Today was a good day overall.  A really good day.  Mummy and daddy first had granma and granpa over for breakfast.  Granpa even let me jump up to say ‘hi’.  Mummy wasn’t so happy about it and told me to get off..but I know that granpa loved it.  So there.  I got to hang out with them and gets me lots of petting and scratches on my tummy.  Mmmm…I love me them scratches.

Then later on, they took me to the Hampstead Heath Extension.  It’s where I sometimes go with Dima.  I ran into a lot of dogs.  There was another labradoodle who was a mini one, but she wasn’t interested in me.  Oh, well.  Mummy and Daddy thought she was very attractive and kept talking about her fleecy wooly fur. Whatever.  She wasn’t fun.  Then I ran into a cockerpoo who was a blast to run around wit.  He was cool. He even let me bowl him over and didn’t bitch about it.  He jumped on me too.  Then I ran into a bunch of labradors, a miniature poodle and a big huge beast named Bear.  I don’t know what Bear was, but she was the biggest dog I’ve ever seen.  HOOGE!

Then came the bad part.  We left the park and they brought me home and gave me a bath.  Meanies…I was smelling all perfect and they ruined it.  Oh, well…tomorrow’s another day to get smelly again.
