  • Description

    A FAMILIAR SIGHT ON THE STREETS OF CAMBERLEY IN SURREY IS A SMALL ELDERLY LADY, MISS KATE WARD, EXERCISING HER DOGS....IT IS NOT A VERY ORDERLY PROCESSION DOWN THE HIGH STREET BECAUSE MISS WARD HAS 29 DOGS -- MOST OF THEM LARGE, AND ALL OF THEM FORMER STRAYS.

    MISS WARD IS 70, AND FOR TWENTY YEARS SHE HAS NEVER REFUSED TO TAKE IN ANY STRAY OR ABANDONED DOG.SHE LICENCES EACH ANIMAL, FEEDS THEM WELL AND REMEMBERS ALL THEIR NAMES.THE 29 WHO AT PRESENT SHARE MISS WARD'S HOME ALL FIND SECURITY AND AFFECTION.

    THERE SEEMS TO BE FEW SIGNS OF ANIMOSITY AND FIGHTS ARE RARE, BUT ON THEIR DAILY WALK THERE IS A GENERAL AIR OF CHAOS.FOR ALTHOUGH MOST ARE KEPT ON THEIR LEADS, THEY ARE YOUNG AND STRONG, AND OFTEN IT SEEMS THAT THE DOGS ARE TAKING MISS WARD FOR A WALK...

    MISS WARD RECKONS THAT SHE HAS TENDED FOR MORE THAN 300 DOGS IN THE LAST 20 YEARS.OCCASIONALLY A WELLWISHER SENDS HER A LITTLE MONEY AND THIS IS ADDED TO A TRUST FUND SHE HAS SET UP FOR HER CHARGES.

    SOME OF THE DOGS ARE TOO OLD TO TAKE MUCH EXERCISE, BUT THEY DO NOT MISS THEIR DAILY OUTING.MISS WARD HAS A SMALL HANDCART, IN WHICH THEY SIT, AND TO WHICH MOST OF THE OTHER DOGS ARE TIED.
