Justice for Jeffrey

Daxington Post Photographers, Basil and Jester Newman report on a great event in aid of Justice for Jeffrey

 

Today we we joined the Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey Facebook group for their Justice for Jeffrey memorial walk. This was to commemorate Jeffrey (pictured below) who was tragically attacked and killed by a bigger dog on Crosby Beach.

As it has been so hot lately the meeting time at Virginia Water was brought forward to 9.30 a.m. The lake looked lovely and there were lots of dachshunds and pawrents there to remember Jeffrey.

As usual we saw lots of our friends and made some new ones, including three 14 week old new members of the group (so sorry Dash, we only got photos of Coco and Rosa – must try harder next time!)

To avoid overdoing it in the heat the group had decided to walk for half an hour and then return rather than do the whole 5 mile lap of the lake that had been originally planned. It was lovely and shady with little beaches around the lake where we could paddle and swim to cool off. Our friend Muffin had a nice relaxing paddle and your diligent repawter bravely went in as well so I could tell you how cool it was!

In the last picture I am swimming with my friend Matilda, she loved it as much as me.

 

We walked on past the huge totem pole where a few of us stopped for photos on the rocks. We weren’t very cooperative and wouldn’t look at the camera as there was so much going on!     

Once we had walked for half an hour we all stopped for a group photo before turning back. People were wandering in and out so apologies if you escaped before we snapped you!

We walked back, stopping for further dips to cool off, a lovely walk to commemorate Jeffrey.

Justice for Jeffrey are campaigning for harsher punishment for people who have dangerous dogs out of control in public. This is especially a concern for parents of us small folk who can be hurt so terribly in just seconds by much bigger dogs.
