THE Global Diabetes Walk – PE is being held at the North End Lake on November 23. It is disconcerting to note that the event organiser, Zports, is inviting all participants to bring along their pets.
These fun walks which support different charities have become very popular and are attracting more and more people. It is therefore my opinion that no dog in its right mind would choose to walk among some 500 or more pairs of legs moving rapidly around it.
Especially the smaller dogs must surely find this extremely daunting, to say the least. I sincerely hope that common sense will prevail on this day and that pets will be left in the safety of their homes while their owners sweat it out around the lake.
