Poorly Dog and the dangers of fishing lines {Milo}


Not so much Monday inspiration and more Monday incensed today. I have had a nightmare 24 hours and completely exhausted and distressed.  As my regular readers will know I have a gorgeous dog called Milo. Yesterday afternoon whilst out walking my dear little dog found a baited hook, wrapped in fishing line. Unfortunately I was not quick enough to stop him, as dogs will be dogs, so he ate what he could smell.

Since then he has had to have emergency abdominal surgery to remove the hook now we are waiting for further updates on his progress. Needless to say, he is very poorly.

I am so incensed that a fisherman would do this. We’ve all seen the horror stories in newspapers and TV cautioning the dangers of discarded lines and hooks and the danger this presents to sea birds. Never did I think it would be so close to home. I’ll never forget his squealing when I tried to untangle the line from his tongue.

And if I ever see a fisherman discard line or a baited hook ever again I shall swing for him.
