Canine buddies to fore in fun run

The coastal walkway will be teeming with joggers, walkers and runners on Sunday but it's guide dogs who will be leading the charge.

This year's 37th annual Port to Park fun run and walk is raising money for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind, its members and their canine friends will be out in force to support. Long-time foundation member Aleister O'Donnell and his guide dog, Baye, will be among the crowd on Sunday but will have to join the race at the halfway point because Baye is suffering from a dodgy knee.

"I don't think he will last the distance and I don't want to make his injury even worse," Mr O'Donnell said. Baye twisted his knee chasing oranges and lemons last weekend but is on the mend.
