THE GOOD LIFE: Chuckles the French bulldog enjoys the finer things at QT Newcastle.

AFTER reading the dog rescue story, ("Pet crisis biting hard", Newcastle Herald 2/7), I couldn't believe the amount of dogs being disposed of by some irresponsible people who bought a dog through COVID or for other reasons only to just discard them when the novelty of a puppy wears off. I believe pet ownership is far too easy. Any irresponsible person can walk up to a backyard breeder and buy a dog on a whim, not realising all that goes into dog ownership. A dog is for life, but some people think a dog can be just disposed of if it doesn't meet the person's needs anymore.
