Much thanks and congratulations to the City of Surrey and all the staff, volunteers and sponsors of Canada Day celebrations, for pulling off another fabulous, fun, free, family-friendly day.
I, for one, enjoyed myself immensely.
To all the people who ignored all the signs that read, “no pets” and managed to sneak their dogs past security, I can’t help but wonder – do you really think your dog was having fun?
In just a few hours, I saw three small dogs who were obviously stressed, if not terrified. The huge crowds and cacophony of sounds are overwhelming to dogs, even laid-back Labs who love chaos and attention.
Please leave your dogs at home, where they are safe, content and at peace. Don’t kid yourself that they’re happier with you.
