Heart­bro­ken over dog killed by hit-and-run

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

IT broke my heart to see the photo of the lit­tle beauty, “Sasha” — an eight-year-old lhasa apso, one of the cutest lit­tle dogs you will ever see.

I have a six-year-old lhasa my­self and am al­ways on guard against the driv­ing of manic mo­torists.

I have driven a few mil­lion miles in my time, in ve­hi­cles rang­ing from a Mor­ris 1000, where I learned to drive un­der the teach­ing of In­spec­tor Dave Penny, the most pa­tient driv­ing in­struc­tor in Dundee, to the lofty heights of large and heavy goods ve­hi­cles.

I have never had an ac­ci­dent of my own fault since gain­ing li­cences in 1969. A pretty good record.

Ev­ery­one knows that dogs are great — great pets, great com­pan­ions.

The pic­ture of Sasha is heart­break­ing — a pal of a child mown to death by some cretin.

This is a liv­ing be­ing, a soft, warm, cud­dly lit­tle be­ing put on Earth to brighten up our lives, their life ended by a self­ish, ar­ro­gant oaf. This is an­i­mal cru­elty. I be­lieve the pun­ish­ment for cruel an­i­mal treat­ment should start at five years in jail.

Noth­ing less will do.

The West End spy.
