Regarding the item headed ” Thoughtless driver kills dog ” 

Now most people in Spain know about the dog culture here but to put the blame on drivers is wrong . If dog owners really cared for there pets they would not be allowed to roam free but should be in fenced areas or on a lead . Dogs wandering loose can be a real danger for anyone because of a risk of being bitten . We have considerate dog walkers in our area where we have seen loose dogs attack smaller dogs on leads and even pick fights with big dogs on leads which is terrifying for owners who could end up being mauled themselves . I agree some drivers travel faster than they should but the control of speed is the business of the Guardia . I am a motorcyclist as well as a car driver and even when travelling at moderate speeds on a bike it is scary when a dog or dogs come straight out onto the road whether that is around town or in the campo .                                                                                      I hate to think of any animal being injured or killed so where does the blame for these situations really rest . What if your dog causes a driver to swerve and kill a child or a dog bring off a motorcyclist that is killed . Think !                                  Responsible dog owners have my respect .   Martin from Colmenar                                (No further emails on this subject will be printed. Thank You. JK)
