Dear Cara the dog,
It seems to me you have been left out of the good wishes , so here's best wishes for a great doggie walk from your friend in Bristol. Hope your special walking boots don't rub and that you enjoy all the smells along the route. Remember humans don't like it when you roll in badger poo!Of course you will walk much further than them because you run ahead and then have to go back and collect them! Best paw forward! Love Jangles (the flat coat retriever)

Congratulations from all at Pennymoor Singarpound! A fantastic achievement! Have a great knees up tonight if your tired feet will take it! We'll raise a glass to you all down here. Now all you have to do is walk back down to us!!!!!! See you soon. Can't wait to hear the tales you have to tell.
