#151 parkruns for Chikka

Chikka

Hi Bruce

 

I refer to your newsletter in May where Quinton and his dog, Kandas had done 100 parkruns and Ivan and his dog, Charlie, had done 113 parkruns in June.

 

My Jack Russell, Chikka started doing the Delta parkrun with me on 3 March 2012 and she has run every one with me other than the few times where she has not been allowed or she hasn’t been with me i.e. Woodlands, Modderfontein (2), Ebotse (2), Ballito, Knysna and Parys.  I have now run 159 parkruns so she has run 151 parkruns with me!

 

She is a typical hyperactive Jack Russell who has loads of energy even though she is almost 11 years old. She paces up and down the car seat  on our way home from the parkrun. Demanding that I throw the ball for her on Saturday afternoon while her “sister” is sprawled on the bed sleeping.

 

I am wondering if there is a dog in South Africa to beat my Chikka’s record of 151 parkruns?

 

Regards

Brenda
