Caped Canines are Superheroes

Dogs are superheroes. They don't (generally) wear capes or underpants, they don't fly, and they don't have a famous catchphrase, but they are superheroes. Why? Because everyday they are saving people's lives. Whether this be by literally dragging someone out of a burning building, or more metaphorically by giving lonely souls company, dogs are the saviours of the human race.

Some of these jobs come naturally, while others need a bit of training. One such job is being a guide dog for the blind. There are over four and a half thousand guide dog partnerships in the UK, and each one is life changing. They ensure that the blind do not lose their freedom and independence, as well as their sight.

Dogs Unite is just one of these charities, and on the 14th July, they invite all canine superheroes and their owners to take part in sponsored walk at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Entry is 10 for early birds who book before the 6th May, and 20 thereafter.

If you have a dog, and live nearby, there really is no excuse for not joining. I mean, you have to take your dog for a walk anyway, right? So why not do it at London's newest and most inspiring park? As well as the sponsored walk, there will be dog shows, displays, a Dogs Unite Village, and the chance to meet some of the superhero guide dogs.
