Abandoned Print E-mail

Most of us assume that Christmas is the worst time for abandoned dogs.  But the RSPCA says no, abandonment peaks in July and August.  Presumably this is because either owners can't afford boarding kennels or leave it too late to book a place.  And so rather than give up their holiday, they dump family pet ...

 
A sad end Print E-mail

At 25, Jack a Yorkshire terrier, was the UK's oldest dog until - a Lakeland terrier attacked and killed him.  What a tragic end for a dog who in human years was about 117.  And a timely reminder that aggressive dogs often can come out of nowhere in all shapes and sizes.  Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his owners Ray and Mary Bunn.  At such a great age, poor old Jack should have been able to slip quietly away in his sleep.

 
Dogs at the seaside Print E-mail

We were surprised to see the Dogs' Trust suggesting people take their dogs to the beach for the day.  Here at the CBC we don't agree for a variety of reasons.  Firstly, there does not tend to be any shade on a beach so a day spent sitting in the sun can be miserable at best for a dog and at worst, result in heatstroke.  Secondly, the sand can irritate dogs' ears and eyes.  And thirdly, there will be many young children enjoying a day at the seaside - a large hairy, albeit friendly, dog can prove a terrifying experience for them.  (Plus most dogs have a tendency to relieve themselves on the highest point which is often a sandcastle!) Lots of dogs love swimming in the sea - although an equal number don't - but again think of other swimmers.  Many beaches ban dogs during the summer months so if you are going to take the dog for a day out, check first that they are allowed.  And whilst you may think you are being kind letting your dog share your cooling ice cream, don't forget it can upset their digestive systems.  We have to admit we are lucky here in that we live just 10 minutes from the sea so during the summer holidays we walk at 6am and are gone by 8am, long before the holidaymkers arrive!  The dogs can then enjoy the cool of the house for the rest of the day...
