Raising funds for Border Collie Rescue

    What I did ------


On Sunday 4th September 2011-


I ran a 1/2 Marathon in the Bank of Scotland, Great Scottish Run, from George Square, Glasgow, to raise funds for Border Collie Rescue.

My entry number was 30651798.

I started running a year back, after I decided to go on a diet
and with the help of the diet, and running with my dogs, I have now lost just
over 6 stone in a year. I am getting so much of a buzz out of running with the dogs that my plan for 2012 is to complete a full marathon.

I'm did this for Border Collie Rescue because....


I was brought up on a farm in the Trough of Bowland and have been surrounded by BC's since I was born. I had a working brown & white BC as a companion from the age of 8.


Dave (my husband) got his first dog when he left home and got his own house (his mother wouldn't have a dog in the house, she was into cats). His dog was a B&W working BC bitch.

Since we got married, even when we had a Collie/Greyhound cross (Lurcher) we have always had at least one BC in the household, usually two.

I think too many people take on a Border Collie because they are cute, but they are also the most intelligent dog Breed.


In a lot of cases it turns out that the dog is more intelligent than the owner and as such the owner thinks the dog is the problem and either abandons it or dumps it on a charity like Border Collie Rescue.


As a pair of BC lovers we could not think of a better cause to raise a few bob for whilst I enjoy my run.


  Total raised 324.01

Many thanks to Elisabeth, and her husband Dave, for all their work in raising funds for our cause.
