    I'm following this from deepest Lincolnshire.
    If you haven't heard he's a 14 year old Springer spaniel who sadly took a different turning from his owners up at Langsett before Xmas. Not been seen since.
    He's all over Facebook via various rescue groups.
    I hope and pray for that little mite but time is against him you would think.

    I hope they find him safe and sound, but there are enough signs up there telling dog owners to keep their dogs on a lead. Ignored by the vast majority, even during lambing/nesting season.

    Saw the posters at Ladybower today. He looks identical to our own ancient 15 year old Springer, Smudge. Really sad.

    Hope he turns up safe and sound but......
    As the owner of 3 dogs I'm continually amazed that people still let their dogs run free in public spaces. The two main reasons for this are
    1 The dangerous dogs act, because your dog doesn't have to attack somebody or even bark or growl at somebody to be reported under the act all it has to do is frighten them so if your dog is running free and it wonders up to someone and they decide to report it to the police because it scared them you stand the chance of facing the charge of your dog being dangerously out of control in a public place with all the heartache that can bring.
    2 The amount of dog thefts taking place where dogs are snatched when running free. It's not a guarantee having it on a lead that someone won't try to snatch your dog but it does make less likely and harder for the thief.
    There is a 3rd reason but that only applies if I'm out at the same time and place with my 250kgs plus of dog (Mastiff, Great Dane and the little one a Rottweiler) walking quietly on their leads getting constantly harassed by gobby little darlings running about off lead with their owners miles behind them,:D
