parkdogs of the week – Anderson

0-2

This is a whole parkdog family of champions! From left to right there is Daniella with Reign, Margaret with Charlie, Pippa with Zsofia, Mike with Tilly, Anthony with Fabian. 

 

 

My name is Zsofia and I’m eight years old. I and some other members of the Silverton Kennels family belong to Pippa and Mike who breed Hungarian Vizslas (Pointers) like us for hunting/gun dogs or pets. We are all part of Pippa and Mike’s family and we are all New Zealand show champions. We live on a 4-acre property and we have our own purpose-built kennel facility.

 

Tilly (in the red coat) and Fabian are past running and they come to parkrun to support the whanau. Anthony takes them for a stroll across the grass while the rest of us are running. They enjoy doing that.

Pippa likes to run with me because I keep the same pace regardless of the distance. When Pippa puts her shoes on I know we’re going for a run. I helped Pippa to train for a half marathon and she feels weird when she has to run without me. On parkrun days I get really excited and I go and stand by the back of the ute. I have done 56 parkruns now.

 

Charlie runs with Margaret, Pippa’s sister. Charlie wishes Margaret would hurry up. At the end of the second lap Margaret wants to go up the finish chute but Charlie keeps her going for the last small lap.

 

Reign is Daniella’s running partner. Pippa, Mike and Margaret didn’t even know Daniella before they all came to parkrun, now they are good friends. Reign can adjust her pace to whoever she runs with, but she makes Dani go faster because I think she wants to catch up to Charlie. Reign enjoys parkrun because of all the people and the cuddles she gets.
