I remember well how I thought this is quite sad as it leaves a falsely negative picture of the world. Moreover, positive news can also be important, such as in this case, where the intent was to increase public awareness of best practices to ensure a healthy and manageable dog population and provide infor - mation on adopting dogs from abroad.
