I wanted to get in my support of dogs after reading the anti-dog screed in Tuesday’s paper. (Letter, “Coverage keeps going to the dogs.”) We have two dogs, a schnoodle that weighs about 11 pounds and a pit bull mix that is much bigger. We enjoy their company and get laughs watching them every day.
I think dogs have been very important to people for thousands of years. They have helped us in countless ways, as watch dogs, hunting dogs, service dogs and so on. A friend of mine who went hunting every year never lost a thing at his camp until his dog died and he woke up to find everything gone outside his RV. He soon had another dog!
I also like the bumper sticker that says, “The more I am around people the better I like my dog.” I guess that sums it up for me.
