parkdog of the week

Wolfie at Pegasus

Hi, my name is Wolfgang, but you can call me Wolfie. I’m 2 years old in your human years (14 in doggie years which makes me a teenager!). I live with my human family (4 human sisters and my Mummy and Daddy). I also live with Princess Buttercup, their cat. Thankfully we get along just fine, in fact, she leaves me my favourite snack in the garden to chew on (Editor: Cat doo-doo). My doggie super power is, howling like a Wolf.

I’m part of the prestigious Pegasus parkrun Miniature Schnauzer Club along with my mates Herbie, Ollie, and Sophie. I’ve taken my human masters for about 15 parkruns. I normally do about 5.5 km as I have to stop on the first lap and water every tree and post that I’m allowed. I also have the prestigious honour of being Mr October 2018 of New Zealand Dog World Magazine. Because I’m so good looking I don’t usually dress up more than a bow tie, I leave the fancy dress to my mate Herbie. 

When I’m not prancing round our awesome course  I go out visiting one of the local rest homes as part of Canine Friends Pet therapy. I just love the cuddles!

Come and hang out with me and my humans at Pegasus, one of the many beautiful parkruns around the world!
