Guide dog had to be returned

May I, through your newspaper, appeal to the old woman who deliberately and violently kicked my blind friend's new young guide dog in the head, whilst it was laid at her feet. The owner was sat by her side.

May I, through your newspaper, appeal to the old woman who deliberately and violently kicked my blind friend's new young guide dog in the head, whilst it was laid at her feet. The owner was sat by her side. The dog no longer will go on the buses as a consequence, and shakes now with nerves if he goes near a bus.Many thousands of pounds have been wasted in training this new dog of hers. My poor friend is completely devastated and misses him very much. The dog has had to be given back to the school to see if it can be helped. In the meantime, the owner has to try and get around on her own, which is proving very difficult again.The dog may never work again, because of the trauma it has been caused. Even more money will have to be spent to get her another animal. I do really hope that, if this woman reads this, she will feel extremely sorry for what she did. If she has any decency, to make amends, she could maybe at least reimburse the charity for all the money that it has lost.I have only recently made a friend of this young blind lady, who wishes to remain anonymous, but I have her full permission to write this in your paper. The incident took place on the December 6 last year, on the 3.45pm bus back from Weymouth. marion andrews 4 Cross StreetSeaton
