In Wednesday, Dec. 5, paper the article titled "Dog owners call for action" made me very concerned. As a former Dukes Valley resident who was born and raised there and whose parents still live there, we've never had any problems with the existing dog laws. I feel that the minority in question shouldn't try to change our laws and restriction before a vote of the majority. Dukes Valley is a nice quiet area where everyone knows everybody and we like it that way. We like our little "community" and do not appreciate "outsiders" trying to change things like laws and restrictions that have worked in the past. All dog owners should be responsible for their dogs and they should not be able to "run free" without supervision from their responsible owners. The people who have a problem abiding by the existing laws are the ones who want to change them to suit their own purpose.
I clean up enough "dog waste" from my own two big dogs and I do not like or want to be cleaning up after someone else's dog, because they want it to "run free" in the "country." I keep my dogs fenced on my property and keep them on a leash when I leave my property, which is one step in being a responsible dog owner.
I would like to know if any of the dog owners in question have had a dog bite someone?
