      Perhaps if the dogs were kept on leads (as they should be) they would not have the opportunity to consume whatever it is that which, is perhaps, making them ill? Maybe it is all the chemicals used by the growers here on their vegetables etc.

      I would also like to point out that also in the Qala area, some idiots has spread rat poison all over the shop./ dogs should be on a lead and cats kept away from some allotments around Qala.. Its is Diabolical for a country that is suppose to be advanced & animal lover. Wendy – British animal lover.

        Wendy first of all who refers to people as ‘idiots’ is arrogant. The poison is spread by farmers in their fields because of the invasion of rats. So Wendy you know well that dogs should be kept on leads. Secondly you should know that those who enter with dogs in private property are breaking the law. Peter – Maltese Human and animal lover.

      Poor dogs. It was very common years ago for dogs to roam around without leashes
      in Malta. I remember when my grandparents dog would come in the early morning
      by himself from blocks away and scratch on my door to let him in. The dog was a mix between a hound and a beagle. What is happening in Malta these days that not even dogs are safe?
