Save Our Dog Shows
Dear Ministre de l'Agriculture, de la Viticulture & du Développement rural
1 Rue de la Congrégation,
We, undersigned, beg you to reconsider your decision to prohibit the organization of
the one of the most successful Dog Shows in Europe, the Luxembourg Dog Shows.
Our hobby and sport unites people in peace from all over Europe. Luxembourg is one of the most international Dog Shows of Europe and known worldwide for its great hospitality.
However, nobody can guarantee that where people come together in great numbers, that now and then it also attracts irresponsible individuals, leaving dogs unattended in closed cars in bright sunlight, resulting sometimes in the know fatal consequences. But what about people leaving dogs in cars while shopping, even for a few minutes. What about parents picking up the children at school and leaving the dog in the car? Will you also close the shops and the schools?
It is not fair that the Committee of the Show of Luxembourg is held responsible and has to face the consequence of prohibiting further shows to be held. It is not fair that hundreds of thousands of dog fanciers all over Europe and even the world are worried that other Governments will follow your example. It is not fair because there is so little we can do and not fair to punish a community for the mistake or irresponsible behavior of an individual.
Dear Minister, we implore you to reconsider your decision and we promise from our side to always look well around and inform friends and visitors attending shows, especially on warm days, to double check cars and never leave dogs unattended in a closed car. We beg you to not punish us for something we didn't do or cannot prevent.
