Here's a very nice story about how a whole neighbourhood came together to try and save the dog that lives in their estate. Blackie does indeed seem like a sweet dog - and apparently even shares food with the cats.
Here's what I don't understand. Why is it that because one person complained, they are going to have to do a survey in order to decide if he must go, when seventy-six people wrote in to say how much Blackie means to them? If it bothers other people so much that Blackie is in the neighbourhood, then the least they can do is bother to write in - why do they have to be surveyed in order to see if they want him or not?
Furthermore, what nuisance is the dog causing? Why does it have to be a case of majority wins if there really isn't a problem? It seems to be a friendly dog - and if there was an indication of how it is causing a nuisance, I am sure the residents would be happy to solve it. If the complainant is just unhappy the dog is just there though, I'm not sure why they are bending over backwards to satistfy this one complaint.
