I totally agree with Arlene’s letter (The News, May 10).
I know there are a lot of doggie lovers out there, but it’s about time that those lovers realize that there is a time and place for the doggie attitudes, and temperaments, and bodily functions, that the lovers, don’t deal with.
Fire & Ice, Father’s Day Car Show & Shine, St. Mark’s Fair and yes, I know that this won’t fly, but the Saturday morning farmer’s market, is not a place to bring the doggies, no matter how cute and lovable the owners think that they are.
I go there every Saturday morning, and not once have I been there that I haven’t seen someone trip, or stumble over a leash, or step in some poo, or have to jump aside, when one dog decides to attack another one. Owners, just smile, and ignore potential mayhem.
We have two doggies, and most of our neighbours have doggies, but for some reason, we realize that we should give them their walks and runs, and then leave them at home, when we have to consider other people’s outings, and comfort, and just being able to get out and not worry about tripping:, falling; and being able to enjoy a day in the outdoors.
I also heard that our town has rules about dogs, but, it seems that the people who made those rules, haven’t yet figured out how to enforce them, or are afraid to.
