Some weeks ago I was driving in the Hereford area, without the motoring dog, when an incident involving several cars was caused by an animal in the road, which was running to each passing vehicle begging it to stop. No-one did, except to avoid it. So I pulled up on the first straight after the bends where it had been seen. It ran immediately to the BMW and was taken by my wife and me to the Police Station. It had no collar, so could not be identified. After a week in the local RSPCA kennels it had not been claimed, so it is now Motoring Dog II. It appears possible that it fell from a car, in which case the owner may not know where to apply for its recovery. If this catches the eye of anyone who lost a dog under such circumstances and he or she can provide proof that the rescued animal is theirs, it could be returned. (Another challenge to Motor Sport circulation—but perhaps it was deliberately abandoned.) —W.B.
Supt. K. Rivers’ history of the Traffic Branch of the Metropolitan Police is sold out; it earned more than £1,000 for the Police Orphans Fund. Says The Job newspaper of the Metropolitan Police, “Two reviews in Motor Sport alone resulted in 300 letters”. We are glad to have helped this worthy cause.
