Dogs are not enjoying much good press this week. The world media showed pictures of President Bush’s dog, Barney, biting Reuters reporter John Decker last weekend. At the same time Singapore headlines revealed politicians are mulling a dangerous dog policy that would forbid some types of fighting dogs to live in Singapore.
This week's Dog Talk in the Weekend section of The Star, the Malaysian national daily, takes a look why dogs bite and dangerous dog legislation.
