Have a thought for furry pals

Pilbara News - - Opinion - An­nette Mea­ger, Ex­mouth

I am so dis­ap­pointed with some Ex­mouth res­i­dents.

I have re­peat­edly seen peo­ple walk­ing their dogs in the heat of the day.

You can see the dis­tress on the dogs’ faces, pant­ing and need­ing a drink, not to men­tion how hot it is on the con­crete they are be­ing walked on.

Dogs do not sweat like we do, they do it through pant­ing.

Peo­ple walk to the shops with their dogs, chain them to a pole and go about do­ing their shop­ping with­out leav­ing them a drink. This re­ally up­sets me to see. If you are go­ing to walk your dog, please do it be­fore the sun comes up, or af­ter sun­down.

Come on, peo­ple — have a thought for your furry fam­ily mem­ber.
