I've seen so many pets become affected by the soaring temperature. One case sticks in my mind - an Old English Sheepdog that had been left outside a shop. My team of vets and nurses had to work together to save his life and we were lucky - the dog lived. But I've also seen pets that weren't so fortunate.

Once Bitten Twice Shy

With hindsight I should have insisted on a purse-sized mutt; a spaniel or a Chihuahua, because Sandy, the hyperactive border-collie that came to live with us turned out to be mad.

Yulin Dog Meat Festival: If We Want to Be Heard, We Also Need to Listen

Louise Mead | Posted 23.06.2015 | UK
Louise Mead

At the same time, this is the argument we should be listening to ourselves. There is no justice in declaring ourselves voices for the voiceless whilst ignoring the plight and cries of the individuals we personally oppress. If we cannot listen to pleas we stop harming animals in our own country, we shouldn't be at all surprised if those in Yulin will not to listen to us.

Why Our Pets Deserve More In The End

Marie Carter | Posted 17.06.2015 | UK
Marie Carter

Until the last decade or so, our pets on slipping this mortal coil would be interred either at the bottom of the garden - dog and goldfish lying paw to fin - or in rather less dignified ways.

Forget about whether Jules O'Dwyer should be stripped of the title and be made to return the prize money (a better idea would be if she gave the entire £250,000 to the RSPCA) or if she should continue to be allowed to perform at the Royal Variety Performance. Surely the bigger question is whether she should have been allowed to appear in the first place.
