‘Tran­si­tional’ dog al­lowed

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

TOWN of Clare­mont coun­cil­lors have given Dun­bar Road res­i­dent Cather­ine Adams an ex­emp­tion to have three dogs, one of which is a deaf cocker spaniel aged 11 and near­ing the end of its life.

“I see hav­ing three dogs as purely tran­si­tional, as once my cocker spaniel has crossed the rain­bow bridge I don’t in­tend get­ting another an­i­mal,” Ms Adams said.

She sought ap­proval to keep a twom­onth-old bri­ard house­dog in ad­di­tion to a two-year-old bri­ard and the spaniel.

A staff re­port said Ms Adams had said she would find ways to re­duce bark­ing noise that had prompted a neigh­bour to com­plain dur­ing public con­sul­ta­tion.
