Let them go free in parks

I AM appalled by this ridiculous law they want to impose, banning dog-walkers from parks and open spaces.

I do a fair amount of walking myself and I would not even contemplate walking where I do without my faithful companion, especially these days.

No dog has ever jumped up at me. So what if they do? Is it really such as big deal. According to Councillor Paul Ursell, it is. Rather petty, if you ask me.

I am all for keeping areas clear of dogs' mess. The answer to that is a petty fine, if caught, but do not take that little piece of freedom away from those dear animals.

So many of the dogs we see walking have limited garden space. Some have no garden at all. They look forward to their regular walks and to be able to run free for just a short while. It is the most natural thing on this earth for a dog to have a good run. We should not have to fight for their rights.
