Some Things Never Change.

A walk along the Canal in Coseley. Took the dog out for a walk, my two boys came along. I have lots of memories of canals from when I was growing up. Most of them good, fishing, swimming, dredging, catching newts and sticklebacks.
Nowadays walking and cycling...

From all the memories I have, one stuck with me in particular. My first time to see a canal...
The reputation of canals was not a good one, dead dogs, shopping trolleys and loads of old crap was what I was expecting.. What I saw on my first ever peak over the side into a canal when I was ten years old was the burnt corpse of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier floating over a sunken shopping trolley. So you see it was true.

Walking along mindind my own business, what was in the canal amongst the rubbish and shopping trolleys? You guessed a dead dog. As I was saying some things don't change. I ask myself how did this dog end up dead in the canal. Its not the first and won't be the last I'm sure.
Here is how, mindless dead beat dole bludging dossers get bored with their pet and for entertainment kill it by watching it drown after jumping in the water to put out the flames. Oh did I forget to say it had been burned...

I took the picture because some people find this shit hard to beleive, well there you have it.
