Meeting Gobi - the little dog with the huge heart

Meeting Gobi:

Today Miss Barnes and four year 3 pupils (Summer Peters, Oscar, Felicity and Alec) went to the Madeleine Lindley Book Centre to have lunch with Leon and Gobi.  We had a delicious lunch (see the pictures) and we bought copies of the book to read in September. We cannot wait for the film to come out! Gobi is already a star in our eyes!

In 2016, Dion Leonard, an ultramarathon runner, stumbled across a little stray dog while competing in a gruelling 155 mile race across the Gobi Desert. The pup earned the name 'Gobi', as she went step for step with Dion, keeping pace with him for nearly 80 miles. What Gobi lacked in size, she made up for in heart. Dion had always focused on winning, but as he witnessed the incredible determination of this small animal, he felt something inside him change.
