This Sooke Road resident is fed up.
On many occasions, one or some of his three West Highland Terriers have been scooped from the roadside and turned over to the CRD. And it’s getting on Steven Usher’s nerves.
His dogs, he told SPN, range throughout his property and that includes the base of the driveway. That is their home! A well-intentioned somebody is probably thinking it’s a lost dog, and possibly stop to rescue the poor “lost” pup. The frequency is getting to him.
When SPN met with him, he was on his way to the CRD to pick up two of his three dogs. One, the mother (pictured), is home.
He can only wonder how much money he’s handed over to the CRD to date.
Yeah. He’s frustrated. Usher wants it to stop. That’s why he put the sign up.
You’ll see the sign driving towards Sooke where a brush fire threatened a number of houses along Sooke Road earlier this summer. Usher house was spared, but his neighbour’s wasn’t.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
