MONTY, affectionately known as either Montgomery Dog, or Monster, is our lovable puggle (pug-beagle cross).
When he first joined our family as a puppy we ruefully thought that his chosen sport would be chewing Mummy’s favourite shoes.
Fortunately, he eventually tired of this game and took up adorable-face grovelling instead. As his smile is so irresistible, he soon became quite podgy.
His veterinary nurse tactfully suggested that Monty and Mummy take up jogging, which they did.
Monty helped Mum train for a half marathon three times a week and here he is with the medal she won for him in July.
