Doggie love

Lynda from Army Bay

Recently dog had its trachea crushed from being dragged along on a lead, leading to coughing, inability to swallow food and very expensive vet bills or death. Think twice people ,don’t drag or choke your dog when walking. Choker chains are not good either. Use treats and praise, and give them some space. There is no reason for this cruelty. None at all. If you can’t control your pet kindly, don’t get one.
