I am glad that Charles has make the point about dogs being banned from
roaming outside their owner's premises.  I am required by law to register,
have her microchipped or wear a name tag and contact telephone niumber, and
control my pet dog.

Believe me, I am also a total animal lover and happily cuddle my
granddaughter's cat, a lovely old soft purry animal, but the total
unfairness of it all angers me.
