The Mucky Pups walk was a charity dog walk organised by Support Dogs, a national charity dedicated to improving independence and quality of life for people living with some very challenging medical conditions.
After a flying visit from a humungous dog, a few of us from Bigfoot Digital put on our walking shoes on Sunday and went down to the Mucky Pups walk in Sheffield.
Bringing Burgess Pet Care’s gift to Danny Anderson, and a very disciplined support dog.
After meeting them last week, and hearing about the life changing work they do, we couldn’t go empty handed.
We brought with us three sacks of dog food kindly donated by one of our clients, Burgess Pet Care, as well as our own donation to support the amazing work they do.
Support Dogs train specialist assistant dogs to help with everyday tasks for people with physical disabilities, give advanced warnings of seizures for people with epilepsy and support for children with autism.
The Mucky Pups Walk on Sunday saw dog lovers from across the country come down to the Support Dogs HQ in Sheffield.
We got down bright and early, and it didn’t take us long to suss out the nearest supply of coffee.

We then set off to take part in the 5 mile walk through Sheffield and did our bit to raise some money, and awareness, for the charity.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the volunteers at Support Dogs, who were on hand to point us in the right direction and refuel us with tea and cake after the trek.
We also made plenty of new four-legged friends at the event. However, one border collie became tired of our fussing once he realised we were empty handed. (Luckily, his owner was on hand to provide a treat or two.)
We hope the day was a success for Support Dogs and look forward to spending more time with them (and their dogs) in the future.
