Pets provide love

It upsets me that here in English Canada in Victoria dogs are not popular.

I feel that I need to give input re: Pet pollution a nuisance, Oak Bay News, June 13.

It upsets me that here in English Canada in Victoria dogs are not popular.

Being British I grew up being told that the English prefer their dogs over their spouses. It is related to feeling unconditionally loved. Lock, stock and barrel. I grew up with this humourous sense.

Regarding pollution, are not cigarette butts more visible? It disgusts me, particularly around bus stops all around the City of Victoria.

Did you know having a pet meets the strong need for (particularly seniors) touching and stroking as they miss the touching that comes with youth?

Victoria appears so sterile that pets are not allowed in apartments, as they are in Ontario.

Not all of us seek consultation at the pub or seek love at the church and the two-minute friendships that are so prevalent in today’s world.
