Sore Paws

Puppy here! Had a hard days walking yesterday but managed to make it to the end of the trek. This was even more remarkable as I feel like I slurped up a few too many drinks from my big bowl on Sunday night - had to try and fit in with everyone else though!

The first days have been hard going - struggled on through some deep snow (well, it was deep for a wee pup!) and up many hundreds of big 'man steps'. Chinese doggy biscuits are tasteless too. Grrrrrrrr. The conversation has been a little dull at times (I should have known!) however credit where its due as the rest of the group have managed to keep up with my pace.

Best part of the day was my Starbucks latte, extra skinny of course, at breakfast.

Sounds like you're all having a great time... your pictures are bringing back some brilliant memories.

Keep on trekking!


P.S. A big shout out to Katie & Catherine from St Andrew's Hospice.

Hi Dad! (Stewart Lindsay)
Hope everything is going really well as I am sure it is! You look as if your enjoying it anyway and making the most of such an experience! Best of luck with the next part of the trek whilst I do some more uni work and clean the gymnasium at the hydro!

Just had a look through all the pictures & it looks much more difficult than I thought it would be.

Hope everyone's feet are holding up ok & there aren't too many blisters!

Looking forward to the next update.

Daddy, I don't think you should take puppy down that big slide again as I think he might be scared.
I think you must have let puppy drink too much when he has fallen over, you and Uncle Stewart were supposed to be looking after him!!
Good luck with the rest of the trek.
Love you, Zara and Mummy
