All told, Gobi ran more than half of the 155-mile race - no small feat for a pup. But Leonard hopes their journey together can go on even longer. He wants to take her home to Scotland and be his pet.
Legally, getting a dog cleared for entrance into the U.K. is a long and expensive procedure, requiring a medical check and a 4-month quarantine, but Leonard is committed to making it work. He left Gobi with a trusted friend in China and has started the process so they can ultimately be reunited. So far, hundreds of donors have already pitched in help cover the costs.
Leonard says it's the least he can do for such a faithful running partner:
"Gobi picked me to be her pal for life, so I am doing what I can with some great support from around the word to make this happen."
