Children’s faces and dogs’ faeces
Sometimes you read a blog post or newspaper column and it chimes so precisely with your own thoughts that you do a double-take. Did I write that under a pseudonym and then forget about the whole affair in a bout of curiously selective amnesia? Anyway, that’s how I felt when I read this item by Martin Newland about dogs. He eventually spoils the item by grouping pet-lovers with those who want to save endangered species, but otherwise, it’s spot on. I bet by now the piece has got dozens of online comments saying things like “I love my dogs, because they would never write anything as nasty as this about humans”.
