Becoming a hero at Lady Gomm House Dogs Unite
Six year old Labrador, Tim became a super hero for Guide Dogs by taking part in the Dogs Unite at Lady Gomm House in London.
Owner John Ferguson explains: “Not to be outdone by his previous roommate Hero, Tim, decided he would like to try a Dogs Unite walk rather than just have his normal morning stroll and free run in the park.
“So off we went to Southwark Park in South London on 11 December to join the Dogs Unite walk organised by Cavendish School at Lady Gomm House. It was a reminiscence trip for me as I used to visit the park regularly growing up.
“The walkers assembled and were welcomed by the school’s Managing Director, Cheryl Stepton and her teaching staff who handed out Dogs Unite capes to all the dogs taking part.
“We were given instructions on the route, through what is a lovely park near Surrey Quays in London. Setting off on the circular route of the park, we passed a lake where we spotted a heron ‘posing’ amongst the array of birdlife.
“We walked for around 45 minutes, finishing at the school gates where Tim was given a goody bag for taking part. The dogs and the pupils from the school were all very well behaved and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience.”
