We didn’t have long to wait for Eric Bahrt’s expected response to the letter from Enough of Dogs. I support Bahrt’s assertion that this lunatic should not be allowed to get his garbage published. Freedom of expression is one of the pillars of a society but messages of unjustified hatred and violence have no place in a decent newspaper. I echo Bahrt’s comment that “man’s best friend” has proven its incredible value to humans over and over again – as guard, protector, in war, as guide for the handicapped, and as simple companion. A world without dogs would be an empty one indeed.
