Amanda Morin: No one likes a barking dog

Re. by Ashley Owens, letters, June 27
Everybody thinks their dog is “amazing” and “wonderfully loving.” This does not mean it is OK to let your dog bark. Neighbors have a right to peace in their own backyards. I’m glad you rescued your dog, but this does not give you some sort of special dispensation to let your dog bark and disturb neighbors to the point where they have to leave a note on your car. And why would they be afraid to confront you in person about this? Is it perhaps your attitude? After all, you say you think your dog is “more loving and sweet than most people.” What kind of attitude toward others does this show? I hope you can grow up a little and find out that this world is filled with loving people who deserve respect and some peace and quiet!
