In case you missed it.


The Panorama documentary 'Unwanted Dogs' was eye-opening and deeply saddening. If you want to see the state of the UK dog situation, just copy the link below and watch this programme from the BBC.

It really makes me wonder what can be done. There is debate about having a dog license but as a critic states in the programme, this just ends up taxing the responsible dog owners and missing the bad ones. It also makes me think- where do people go to buy a pup? They go to gumtree, classifieds etc. Can't the RSPC lobby these classifieds publications to take responsibility for their part in it. Advertise alongside each ad for pups, what goes into having one? A link to this documentary? What do you think? You can leave a comment at the beginning of this entry. I'm sure this documentary will enrage you as much as it did me.
