Rocky, the sanctuary dog, really has been putting himself through a harsh training routine at the gym. It has been discovered that his is now developed his training plan to include other fitness regimes! Our reporters found him hard at work at a Pilates class, working on toning all the necessary muscles ready for his long walkies next sunday!!
“It’s really helped to take the edge off the training.” Rocky told us as he took a break for a bowl of water, “All that running and jogging is really run but I do get tired, I prefer a low impact exercise routine. Pilates is great for that.”
We asked his personal trainer how Rocky’s training was really progressing. “He’s doing really well. He is such a good boy! I have devised a very intensive workout plan for him and as long as he gets a doggy-treat after every session he works really hard!
“There has only really been one incident which I would like to clarify before the press gets a hold of the story. Rocky had been hard at training for most of the afternoon one day last week, its was very hot in the gym so he had quite a bit to drink. Towards the end of the session he started fighting and whimpering and before I could take him outside he…well… relieved himself of a potted plant.”
“I was so ashamed of myself, I really hope it does not affect the amount of sponsorship I’m gaining for the Society for Abandoned Animals” Rocky told us as he gave us the puppy-dog-eyes. You can still sponsor Rocky at http://www.justgiving.com/sfaa2010walk
Meanwhile, our sources tel of a bit of rivalry building up between Rocky and a rival sanctuary animal, Marci the cat! Our reporters managed to catch up to Marci so she could talk us through her preparations for the big walk!
“It’s so unfair that Rocky has had so much time to prepare for the big walk! Why was he told about this over a week ago and I have only just heard now?” Marci hissed to our reporter, “He’s a DOG! Why does he need training? He goes out on walks twice a day!! It’s not like I don’t want to help out the good people at The Society for Abandoned Animals. They rescued me from a fate worse than death!
“Luckily I have been able to get access to a private gym where I can train myself for the walk on my own! I’m a cat! I don’t need a human standing there feeding me treats in order for me to do something! I, unlike Rocky, do not take bribes!!”
It is obvious there is a fierce rivalry between these two sanctuary animals however both are united in their belief that helping to raise money for the Society for Abandoned Animals is a good thing for everyone to be doing!
It has just been announced by representatives of The Society for Abandoned Animals that the person who raises the most money for the big 2010 sponsored walk will receive the grand prize!! An Experience Day for two people!!!! You chose the activity, the day and the place and you will be having the experience of a lifetime!!!! So get fundraising!!!!
