Another Summit County dog complains about banning from community events scene

Vroni T. von Falkenstein, dog, at home with E.T. von Falkenstein, Dillon

Let me introduce George Knode Bower, a 15-year-old miniature schnauzer.

My name is Vroni T. von Falkenstein. I am an 8-year-old Doberman pinscher, so beloved when I am out, I get more than compliments about my alert, beautiful eyes. I get kisses from strangers.

I would not displease my owner by going close to human food because I am told this is not proper. In fact, for my own safety, I do not accept food of any type from the hands of strangers. Any offer has to go through the hands of my owner.

Now, on the subject of attending local events, out of consideration for me, my owner no longer will attend entertainment, concerts or other events because I would have to stay home or in the car.

That includes the owner of my best friend, a well-behaved standard poodle named Pepper. We would like event organizers to reconsider their dog bans.

The key is for humans to teach their canids just the way they would teach manners to a young child. Learn to read your dog’s gestures, language for needs and wishes. It is sign language, but it is clear.

If all loving dog owners stay away from events in this county – and there are a lot of dog owners – business will become nominal.

I believe you are smart enough to get the drift. I suggest that organizers please address the few unruly pets.

I would not need a leash, but I endorse that requirement for my own safety.
