The more I hear about humans the less I understand them. It seems that being ill is almost a crime in the human world. Unless you are one of the lucky tube drivers which is the same grade as Dog Guard First Class if for no fault of your own you find yourself unable to do your old job you will not be guarenteed to get a new one.I know the canine world is not perfect and we used to have problems in Grandfather Greyhound's day at least we dogs have moved on.
Maybe we should have a meeting with a police and guard dogs, with show dogs, running dogs of all types even with family and house dogs and work out how we can help these humans. As good socialists we must not be too doggist.
Just think what would happen if all human transport workers and all dogs went on strike at the same time. It would cause utter chaos. I'd love to be on the picket line. So maybe you could ask Barking branch about a possible ballot.
