Ashley Owens: Dogs will bark

Ashley Owens
Frisco

A few weeks ago I adopted an amazing and wonderfully loving dog from the local animal shelter. She is only a year old and has already had a hard life. Despite being dumped after having puppies, she is more loving and sweet than most people can claim to be. She is adjusting to having a home quite well, but does have the tendency to want to protect the only home she’s ever had. She will bark at passersby, but is otherwise a very quiet girl.

Quite recently, I received a note on my roommate’s vehicle with a copy of the Frisco ordinance on Noisy Animals (not to mention a rude comment written on said paper). To this note-leaver: The mere fact that you dared trespass on private property to attempt to prove a point (of which you did not succeed) severely concerns me. Also, my dog had the right to bark at your trespass. What concerns me even more is the fact that I’ve heard more than one person complain about you. Naturally, I will not name names, but whoever you are, I would like to send a message back to you: Dogs sometimes bark. I guarantee that every dog owner in the county (and there are more of us than you) will agree to this. Oh, and by the way, there is also a town ordinance against littering on private property and nuisances. Stop and think before you become even more of one.
