I'm praying for my dog, and all the other victims of pet theft

HOW lovely to see Paul O'Grady back on our screens again with his series For The Love Of Dogs, about the sterling work of Battersea Dogs Home. As one of hundreds of pet owners in the UK who has lost a dog, it's a hard programme to watch, but watch it I must, in case by some weird chance my dog has slipped through all the cross-checking of microchips, written and photographic descriptions, and is waiting there for me to bring her home. Until my own dog was stolen four weeks ago, I had no idea just how many owners are having their beloved pets taken by unscrupulous criminals, who then sell them on internet websites. My dog has been registered on DogLost, a nationwide website doing a fantastic job in trying to reunite owners and their pets.
