Ah, as the day ends now, I dearly hope all our animals are safe and sound.
We would all do well to always keep our animals safe from the possible dangers lurking out there.
As my post said (and very clearly too), it was just a tip-off and I was not sure whether it was reliable or not, but it pays to be on the alert.
A few days ago, a friend's dog was captured. He was devastated. If only someone had alerted him about a possible doghunt, he could have kept his dog inside his house.
All the same, thank you very much for all your comments and as always, I hope we all learn something useful from them.
Working hours have ended now so I shall un-stick the post from the top and let's move on.
