    helping to construct something etc please let the Nasorg know Please contact Elmae on 071 582 8171 if you can help Lindy Warren says The Patatfees is just done and the Fees visitors have left and more have arrived to enjoy our realm Those fortunate enough have stayed in the Napier accommodation establishments of which Napier boasts 25 and counting The weather has been at times glorious cool though sunny clear and even wind free and many of these our visitors take to the lanes and village paths to enjoy the stunning scenery They have my sympathies as their every step was hounded literally Napier is home to many hundreds of canine friends not to mention the beloved feline equine bovine and poultry pets of various residential collections In our block alone there must be in excess of 15 dogs that bay at all and sundry all the while in sight and very obviously in ear shot of their owners and not a peep is uttered The locals too are subjected to these hounds and their noisy and peace sleep shattering utterances Most notable of the recipients are the scholars that walk a mere 400 metres from the hostel to their school each day Surely these times are easy to identify not to mention the barking hey that s my Fido Why are pet owners not able to hear the noise of their barking animals and hush them into silence If I were to blow a whistle or sound a horn when the folks walk by I would be classed as a public nuisance and have a noise disturbance writ served in the blink of an eye I once took a walk at 9 pm to a distant neighbour whose hound had been sounding off relentlessly for close to 90 minutes only to be told my hond is nie n blaffer nie All this conveyed at volume while the mutt made any normal conversation near impossible In most instances these dogs are not your typical watch dogs fences if any are knee high and gates often ram shackled and a bit limp in security terms Of note the mutts guilty of such behaviour are seldom walked Might it be that their owners were too wary of doing just that and come under the same attack as the scholars visitors and those that do walk Should I have to walk armed with a whistle and recording device The whistle I will blow at the dogs that bark madly it may be helpful in alerting the dog s owners as to the NOISE it is making The recording will shock even you the dog owner as to just how your mutt sounds to all but you Come on folks Please manage your animals and their noise This year Nelson Mandela s birthday is indeed something to both celebrate and be sombre about it may well be his last with us and he is in our thoughts What better way to remember how
