Fell dog Max and his young sidekick Paddy have become Facebook and internet celebrities as they have been promoting the fantastic experience of walking in the Lake District. Now owner Kerry Irving is bringing the pair of springer spaniels from their home in Keswick to take part in The Great Ambleside Dog Walk.
The walk aims to raise money for the charity Freedom Wizard, which helps wheelchair users enjoy the great outdoors. It will also mark the official launch of the Ambleside Dog Friendly Scheme, which will encourage local businesses to show they are dog-friendly by putting an eye-catching sticker in their windows.
After walkies, there will be a Dog Show and lots of pet stands back at Rothay Park.
