The dog was neither pulling nor dragging on its lead, yet every attempt at walking was met with a threat and repeated slapping by both of them.
Had I not just left the local Health Centre feeling very ill, I would have followed them home, got their address and reported them to the proper authorities.
This woman must live somewhere, she must have neighbours – are they too frightened to report her actions to the SSPCA or do they just not care?
Animals, as well as children who are ill-treated or neglected will remain just that unless someone reports it and a new home can be found.
There is never any need for cruelty.
I WAS really surprised to see myself on Wednesday's Memories page among the small boys with model yachts at the boating pond in Largs, where I grew up.
I still have the yacht in my front window in Greenock, where I now live. The pond at the time was at Mackerston on the south side of Largs, not the present Aubrey pond.

SO the Red Road flats have gone.
I can well remember them being built in the mid-60s. At that time people were desperate for a house.
That's when the points system started to take effect.
The story goes that after the first block was completed, the lady who got a flat – 29 floors up – said to her husband after three or four days, "I'm going out to wash the stairs"...
He didn't see her for a fortnight.
I WAS dismayed to read about the damning report over care of the elderly at the Royal Infirmary (Thursday).
How can you have any faith in the hospital after the findings in this report?
Elderly patients should not be treated in this way.
