I don’t normally like sending out these type of requests but this is something very dear to my heart and frightenlingly it’s right on our dogstep.
Tomorrow is Black Sandshoe Syndrome Awareness Day - if you know of any dog (besides me that is) that suffers from this terrible debilitating disease whereby it causes you to spot your target, initially look away as though nothing is doing and then at the very last minute jump across, chase and try and bite any unsuspecting walkers, cyclists and triathletes annoyingly around the ankles (whilst enjoying the look of horror on their faces), please show your support by taking a shot of you wearing a pair of black runners & share this post.
This illness does not care what type of brand of runner the unsuspecting targets wear whether it be Nike, Dunlop KT26s, Vans, Doc Martin’s or one of my old favourites Bata Scouts.
By raising awareness we can beat this affliction and all dogs will be loved all the more across this great land.
First it was Sally Pearson, then Michael Diamond to go to the Rio Olympics, Jarryd Hayne the NFL San Francisco 49ers and now me as my dream to compete as an elite greyhound athlete in Dapto has been completely shattered in one fell swoop?!
Months of grueling training chasing Bobby around the lounge room has been for nowt!
