On May 31, Sam Pratt published an email exchange between a Hudson resident who valued the right to walk with her dog in the cemetery and the mayor. Then last Wednesday and Thursday, there was the great flap that ensued when someone shared with a larger audience the frustrated rant of a dog rights advocate made to a closed group on Facebook. In the meantime, a couple of letters to the editor on the subject dogs and the prohibitions against them have appeared in the Register-Star: "Leave dogs alone," published on May 28, and "Welcome dogs," published on June 7. They make interesting reading, and since it seems they may have been written by some of the very people whose sensibilities the mayor is committed to defending, one wonders what his response to these folks might be.
