Pint-sized pooch is top dog
SCARLET the Dachshund may have short legs but they did the job in the Headway Colchester dogathon.
The pint-sized pooch raised the most money from sponsored walk in Highwoods Country Park collecting £275 towards the £2,500 total from the event.
Scarlet’s owner Alison said: “It was a wonderful event and Scarlet was a real little trooper and made us very proud”.
Alison, who is a speech and language therapist, works closely with stroke patients.
It meant the fundraising was even more appropriate - Headway helps brain injury survivors and their families and more than a third of their clients at the centre in Colchester are stroke survivors.
Dogs and their owners can now register for the Coastal Dogathon which is being held on Sunday October 6.
The 2 ½ mile walk along the Clacton prom and back will be followed by a fun dog show. The registration form can be downloaded from www.headwayessex.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01206 547616.
