Walking for harmony in Hong Kong

Meanwhile at the other end of the scale, our Walk for Harmony last Sunday saw devoted families taking their much-loved dogs for a walk around the Peak in Hong Kong.

The message was clear - to see companion animals as our friends, rather than food, and to appeal to everyone there never to buy fur or fur trim, which sees millions of animals including dogs and cats tortured each year for the fur trade.

The walk was fabulous - venue, feedback and weather were all marvellous, and the dogs clearly had a rollicking good time.

A big well done to Edwina in our Hong Kong office for the superb organisation and coordination and to all who worked so hard to create the brilliant publicity materials and doggy bandannas, coordinate the media and PR, scrounge the goodie bags, make sure the support services were in place, register the dogs, man/woman stalls, book vet and photographers, carry banners, and help the public and the generous volunteers who gave their time and talents - and anything else I've forgotten.

We were thrilled to have Hong Kong celebrities Anthony and Jocelyn (with me below) bring along their own best friends to join in the walk.

Thanks most of all to all who came along and supported the day - great to see you (and your best friends!), and massive thanks for giving up a little of your Sunday to support the cause.
