to feed them. For the rest of the day they bark or cry. Shame on the owners.
to Council’s explanation in last week’s Dubbo Photo News about the upkeep of our city’s approaches, parks and gardens. Nobody is talking about irrigation or total fire bans! We are talking about using a slasher and mower! It’s a fire hazard letting it grow!
Editor note: For space reasons, a second and more detailed Thumbs Down is included in today’s Letters & Feedback section.
to Alison and team at Macquarie Dry Cleaners on Tamworth Street. You’ve worked some amazing wonders in very hot conditions
to Nicole and Christine at Playmates for always making us feel welcome with a warm and positive environment.
to a wonderful lady driving a black car that picked up our beloved “Tigger” after he escaped in the big storm last week. This lady sat with him and waited for staff to arrive at the Pound as she would not leave him in the overnight kennels. Staff could not give my daughter her name, but from the bottom of our hearts thank you. We appreciate your kindness so much in making sure “Tigger” was safe.
to the lady who passed on the right directions to find our Doberman who went missing during the storm, and also to the kind construction workers who looked after him until we finally located him.
to Kyrie from the Masonic Village for always having a smile and giving her clients nothing but the best care and always a positive attitude.

Thanks to Danielle for this great photo of lightning in the distance, taken at Southlakes looking towards Lazy River Estate.
Lightning often traces all the way to ground, which makes this photo by Gem all the more interesting. It’s as if the lightning is hanging in the sky while it decides where to go next.
DPN reader Helena sent this photo showing the damage done to the backyard fence by the wild winds last Tuesday night-early Wednesday morning.
A late afternoon Dubbo sky, as seen by Houda last week.
Lightning lights up the sky behind the Dubbo Turf Club in this photo from Cayden taken last Monday night, January 21, only a couple of days after a big crowd had packed into the venue for The Beatlez concert.
Dubbo Photo News’s facebook coordinator Ken put the call out over the past week for readers to show us their photos showing the storm activity we’ve been experiencing during January. Here’s a cross section of the interesting and amazing photos contributed...
Thanks to Shrestha for this panoramic photo of a golden summer sky taken at Southlakes.
