My little boy has arrived!

On the 10th of October 2016, little Johnny whiskers was born!
Actually, his name is John – he’s a life-changer, but he doesn’t know it yet.
The only thing he’s concentrating on is chewing shoes and getting up to as much mischief as a prospective guide dog can.
I was so proud when I got his birth certificate.
To those of you who are new to my blog *and, to everyone else, I am so sorry for the ridiculous length of time it’s taken for me to update my blog*, John is a guide dog puppy which I sponsored by raising almost £6000 by walking from Bath to Cardiff.
He was named in memory of my father who died in 2012.
In a few weeks’ time I’ll get to meet John.
I’ll leave James with friends, as it’s not fair to introduce the two dogs. For one thing, James will probably undo all the hard work John’s puppywalkers have done.
Also, he’s more than likely to tell John what he’s letting himself in for by being a guide dog.
I’m so grateful to everyone in Cardiff who helped me with the walk, no matter if it was by walking with me or donating. Each one of you played a part in John’s life.
The lovely friends in North Wales were also incredibly generous.
So many people from as far away as Australia donated to my just giving page – and I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to give independence and freedom to another visually impaired person.
I’ve got heaps to tell you all, so I’ll write another blog soon.
A date for your diaries, I’ll be on BBC Wales’s weatherman walking with Derek Brockway from BBC Wales, and Julian Hughes from RSPB Conwy.
You can watch it at 7.30 PM on the 10th February on BBC 1 Wales.
