Raw deal


FOR years, I have been tak­ing my dog to visit a care home so res­i­dents can talk to her, make a fuss of her or just ig­nore her. Most folk love to see her and even those who can’t talk like to stroke her.

How­ever, I have re­signed from the scheme that or­gan­ises these vis­its, as I have been in­formed that as my dog is given raw meat in her diet, there could be a risk of cross­in­fec­tion to peo­ple. I ap­pre­ci­ate such con­cerns, but when so­cial iso­la­tion has be­come such a prob­lem, surely with a lit­tle thought a so­lu­tion could have been found.

How sad the res­i­dents will be de­nied an up­lift­ing visit from a gen­tle dog.

Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
