Replacing our fish tank today meant a trip to the pet store in the pouring rain and there outside was a woman who’d given up her bank holiday Monday to stand under an awning raising funds for Pro Dogs Direct, a charity that rescues and rehomes unwanted dogs and has a no destruction policy.

On a dry day I think there would have been more shoppers willing to find out about what she was doing and to take part in some of the fundraising activities: I don’t know whether it was sympathy for the dogs or the woman, but I felt inclined to make a donation.
