Row, Row, Row Your Bowl: Thames by Doggie Dish
A cunning stunt indeed: a vet and his dog have rowed the lenght of the River Thames in an outsized dog bowl, covering a distance of 150 miles over nine days.
A TV vet has successfully rowed down the River Thames in a giant dog bowl for charity.
Joe Inglis, from Vets in Practice, began his mammoth expedition in Cricklade, Wiltshire, in early July, with his dog, Jack.
The purpose of the 150-mile journey was to raise money for the charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
The dog bowl, which was made from an old cattle drinking trough, was called The Mutty Bark.
Mr Inglis told BBC Breakfast he came up with the idea for the trip in the bath.
"This was a challenge and I didn't think through the implications of rowing a round bowl," he said.
"I fleetingly thought about rowing across the channel, but after nine days onboard, I decided against it."
He began the 150-mile trip at noon on July 3 at Cricklade in Wiltshire and finished in Putney nine days later.
