World’s fastest dog back on all fours and two wheels

Posted:

The world's fastest canine, cattledog Bundy will be back where she belongs at the Australian Motorcycle Expo Melbourne, perched alongside owner Tex aboard the bike on which she clocks up to 80,000km a year for charity.

It's been a harrowing year for man and dog, with Bundy left paralysed after an accident while roaming the paddocks at home.

The goodwill and charity of fellow motorcyclists and the community in general helped to raise over $15,000 to cover Bundy's medical expenses while being treated by a specialist doctor at Sydney's Animal Referral Hospital.

The subsequent nine-month rehabilitation program has Bundy back on all fours, as well as two wheels.

The four-and-a-half year old cattledog, who has ridden at speeds of up to 280km/h aboard Tex's Hayabusa, will visit the Australian Motorcycle Expo Melbourne from November 26-28 and is expected to be front and centre in plenty of visitor photos.

"We were overwhelmed with the support shown when the news came out that Bundy had been seriously injured, donations and emails of support came from across the world," explained Tex O'Grady.

"Bundy and I are used to clocking up tens of thousands of kilometres together a year and we obviously haven't much opportunity to do so lately.

"We're both looking forward to being a part of the Melbourne expo and meeting a few new friends as well as some familiar faces."

Riding with her owner since she was just seven weeks old, Bundy has played a vital role in raising funds for various charities including CanTeen, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, the Variety Club and more recently, prostate cancer research and awareness.

Tex and Bundy will be on the Scalarider stand at the Australian Motorcycle Expo which will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre later this month.

The event will showcase new bikes, products and accessories from over 100 exhibitors plus feature a host of attractions, action demonstrations and giveaways for riders of all ages.
