Cavaliers running for Charity

Apologies for the image being not quite as sharp as usual but I wanted to share with you these two adorable Cavaliers who are walking for charity in Monte Carlo - the same photo is on Monte Carlo Daily Photo today.

No Finish Line is a charitable event where people walk, run, stroll around a circuit created at the port.

You can do as many circuits you like or as few and at any time of the day or night and it runs for 9 days. You have an electronic tag attached to your foot (you can see the tag on the lady's back shoe) and for every kilometre run money goes to charity. The dogs have a tag fixed to their collar. Some people walk with friends and chat, others take it really seriously and aim to beat records. There is even a special 24 hour run for the most kilometres during that time - last year's winner ran 248 kilometres in this category.

The record for the most kilometres run by an individual over the 9 days has just been beaten and now stands at 200 ks.

For a full explanation go to the website - NO FINISH LINE.

Sounds like a great fund raiser. Took my boxer to visit mom the other day and the hairdresser was there with her Cavalier, who wanted no part of Stella.
