Blog post #2 for this guy. With regards to training/racing etc, not much interesting is going on. Myself and Lam (Liam Hillery) race the Narragansett 10 miler this Friday evening, July 29th. Your thoughts and prayers are with us.

The wolf is doing great. Since my last post, he has really morphed into what you expect a dog to be (peeing on everything, barking at other dogs, chasing squirrels, all that jazz). Again, getting him to sit, stay etc has been tough. On the bright side he’s a pretty lazy wolf that just likes to float around on Instagram (@the_golden_life_of_desmond).

Joking around and having a laugh is all well and dandy, however there is something serious I need to bring to everyone’s attention. The Irish and UK readers of this blog will be fully aware of what is going on. The North American readers, and that one lad from Vietnam who visited our site will be clueless as to what is going on. Specifically in America, everyone is preoccupied with issues that have been labelled as important, like the U.S presidential race, rendering themselves completely blind to the real threats in the world. I am of course talking about the great 21st century seagull terror epidemic. In my own hometown of Waterford, Ireland, there’s one gull in particular that has been patrolling the streets of the sunny southeast.His name is Jonathan. Pictured below.

Jonathan has been swooping down to personal space invading levels and terrorizing locals for nearly 3 years now. I’ve been a victim of the attacks many times when I’ve been out running. And this is just one seagull. There have been plenty of incidents throughout the country. The whole world seems totally consumed with the Trump vs Hilary and T.Swift vs Kim K, without batting an eye towards the greatest threat Ireland has had for years. Even our senators are crying out for help:

It pains me to see Ireland struggle on while my American friends turn a blind eye towards it. Please send some thoughts and prayers to Lam and myself for that 10 miler, then get some more, stamp them and forward them on to the victims of the seagull attacks in Ireland. We need as many thoughts and prayers, open letters, statuses, changed profile pictures and any other social media aid we can get.
