Dogs and Humans . . . Now and Then

Today, if you were to leave a dog tied up in the backyard overnight in January, you would very likely be reported for animal abuse. The general opinion of those who would do such a thing is expressed by this meme which appeared recently on Facebook.

A hundred and fifty years ago, someone who would do such a thing might be subject to shaming in the local newspaper, but not necessarily for the inhumane treatment of the dog. This notice appeared in the Hudson Daily Star on January 10, 1872.
