    I would like to thank Andrew Heavens for writing good articles of all subjects. And for being and involved and caring journalist to all creatures of god.
    I think it is highly important that people in Ethiopia will develop more awareness towards animal welfare and responsible pet care. This is important not only for the sake of animals but it is important to Ethiopian community as a whole. With rabies outbursts continuing to grow in Addis Ababa where 3 people die from rabies every month and with the deterioration of wild life in Ethiopia that is effecting tourism and there for the financial situation in Ethiopia.
    The dog show was a fun event and an important break through in animal welfare and community education.
