The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan for November 29

This we like

We have the privilege in this business of seeing some of our high-achieving kids first-hand.

But Emily Dorma is still 18 months away from graduating from high school and she already has an international modelling title to go with a win at the biggest dog show in the world.

We’re left wondering what other hobbies this precocious south Cowichan teen may have.

 

This we don’t

They aren’t entirely common, but stories about vicious dog attacks are nothing new in the area either.

Still it’s rare to have a couple back-to-back like last week’s in Lake Cowichan that led to a dog being shot and this week’s in Cobble Hill that ended with the death of a horse.

Dogs are beloved, but their potential for violence is real. Owners need to be aware and protect their neighbours.
