Smart enough. And that this is not just a joke of the HGSS, but of important messages, shows the traffic accident that happened a few days ago on the Adriatic Highway.Source: Facebook HGSS From week to week, HAK warns of huge traffic jams on our roads, of course it is the “peak” of the season and traffic jams (although a mild word for the current situation on our roads) on our roads to and from the sea are something that has already become part part of the adventure. And the journey from point A to point B is part of the annual, right?Unfortunately, due to long-term growth based only on the growth of accommodation capacities, and not on the development of tourist destinations, from year to year we have increasing infrastructure problems in our tourist destinations, including our roads that simply cannot accommodate so many vehicles.The new mainland-Ciovo bridge doesn’t help either, because normally it’s just a short section with two lanes, and traffic jams happen before and after. All this is a consequence because we do not deal with tourism strategically and sustainably. How to expect the growth of arrivals and overnight stays, and at the same time we have not provided the prerequisites for the same, except for the accommodated capacity. But that is a broader topic for another discussion.But as we have a hundred people, a hundred surprises, so in abnormal situations, abnormal things happen, and so on our roads. A team from the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) warned of an abnormal thing in their already legendary way. And this is an opportunity to remind ourselves of some of the legendary messages and warnings for HGSS tourists.
10th November 2011I hope everyone enjoyed the Halloween season both safely and sensibly.Today I wanted to share a story with you which I hope will give you food for thought. A lady rang me the other week in tears looking for advice with her 16 month old Labrador. She has had her since she was 8 weeks old and she had take the pup to the puppy classes, and obedience classes at her local trainer and was delighted with the results :- a happy well socialised pup!After the two courses, the lady was proud to take her dog for walks in the park and the beach and did this every day.Her circumstances changed and she fell pregnant.. this wasn’t a easy pregnancy and she had many days she was very unwell.Months passed and she had a healthy baby girl and was very happy. The dog unfortunately started to play up and started to chew furniture, urinate on the floor and jumping up on all the visitors. The lady rang me as she was at the end of her tether and frightened the dog would hurt the baby. Plus she was forever cleaning up!Where could I recommend for her to take the dog to be re-homed??I was shocked! I explained gently to her that the dog was feeling neglected and pushed out… with all the upset of the pregnancy and the new arrival, the dog was no longer taken for daily walks and the training was not kept up!After a long conversation, we agreed to set up some rules and retrain the dog.Happily things are working out and mother, baby and dog are now living in almost harmony! The reason for this story is that whatever happens in your personal life, don’t forget your pets.. Don’t give up on them too quickly, seek help as there is always a solution to things if you really want one. Remember, they give you their love and loyalty unconditionally and will help pull you through those dark days!For anyone in a similar situation, anyone who feels they can’t cope any longer, please, reach out and ask for help.CLARE BOYLE’S DOG BLOG was last modified: November 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CLARE BOYLE’S DOG BLOG
