A gift and why do people dislike dogs? Day 159, 39.7km (4/1/2009)

Our destination was Cairns today, so I only managed to run with D until the Highway started, I didn’t mind this as I was a little tired after such a big day yesterday. When we arrived in Cairns we were greeted Deputy Mayor who presented D with a gift from the city of Cairns in appreciation of what we were doing. It was a beautiful broach made by a local glass artist by the name of Judith Bohm-Parr. D was very grateful for the gift but as with all items that are given to her along the journey she will be auctioning it off when she returns home to Hobart with all the proceeds from these gifts going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. D just feels that she doesn’t need gifts and the money raised by the sale of these gifts should go to breast cancer research.  After our meeting with the council D and I ran on out of Cairns, D was feeling a little weary after her high k’s day yesterday so she wanted to end the day early, the only problem was me, once again, as there were hardly any dog friendly caravan parks in Cairns and its surrounds. We did find one eventually, thanks to uncle G. I am starting to dislike this dogless policy that many caravan parks have it makes it very hard on D as she often has to run extra kilometres to get to a park that will accept me. Why don’t these parks love me? Most people do, I think I will need to write to my local dog representative and protest against this dogist attitude.

Running with you soon
Maggie, Director of Greeting (D.O.G.)
