Pets bring happiness and comfort

IN RESPONSE to the Letter in last week’s Dispatch headed ‘The Answer To Dog Mess Is To Ban All Pets’.

What right has the Letter-writer, Shaun ‘Chooch’ Williams, to write such a load of bull that has nothing to do with the actual problem?

Don’t you ever think how much a pet means to some people? And how much happiness and comfort they bring to both young and old?

What about the good they do in helping blind people to get about? And what about police dogs? They do a wonderful job.

Like many people, we have always had pets. But that doesn’t mean our children have ever been neglected in any way.

The only person I can think of who is not of sound mind is you, Mr Williams, to write what you did.
