Gobi and her ultra marathoner

The story of Dion Leonard and the dog who accompanied him through the Gobi Desert ultra marathon earlier this year has been making its rounds through the internet this week.

What dog lover could pass up the chance to hear about the dog who decided to bond with a man she had never met, through an grueling endurance event?  It sounds very much the like the 2014 story of Arthur who adopted the Swedish Peak Performance team in the Amazon.

Dion Leonard and Gobi

I suggest you listen to Dion Leonard himself in this interview on WBUR radio in Boston.  There’s nothing like hearing the story first-hand!

(Dion Leonard is currently fundraising to adopt Gobi and bring her to Scotland to live with him.  I hope he reaches his goal.)
