JANE CRAVEN RUNS THE 2012 LIVERPOOL HALF MARATHON
Jane and Ross
Jane says “Two years have gone by really quickly since Eric and I picked up Ross from his fosterers in Perton - what a top dog he is too! We only see occasional 'flashbacks' of his former life now as he has well and truly got his paws under the carpet with us.
Ross loves to show off his sociable nature to people and dogs he trusts, usually hurtling up to them and somehow applying the brakes at the last second! The local dog walkers will often find him then demanding any amount of petting they have the patience to give!
His favourite walks are in woodlands where Ross will disappear on a mission to snuff out any unsuspecting rabbits and squirrels. We used to worry as to his whereabouts but no need as Ross is always aware of where we are, especially in areas he is unfamiliar with.
We have also enjoyed some moorland walks but sheep have proved to be a temptation so the lead often has to be at the ready!
Recently I ran the Liverpool Half Marathon and raised £200 for IRR. Putting something back to such a worthwhile cause was all the motivation I needed.
I hope Ross was impressed too!”
