  • (quote)"Think of a license as an insurance policy to get home quickly. Here's the scenario. While you're at work your kids open the gate and the dog quickly dashes through then runs at warp speed down the street. You don't find out about this until an hour or more later. Somebody notices a dog running loose and calls the police. Dispatch sends out the animal control officer who catches your dog, reads the individual # on the license tag, punches the number into his handy little dashboard computer and up pops your contact information. Officer So & So can call you to come identify your dog or can return your dog to you your house if your spouse is home. "

    You forgot to mention the $50 fine for dog at large and $40 court costs (even if you don't go to court). My dog already has identification on her collar without a license.

    In the past my dogs have escaped the way you have described, been picked by police while trying to get back into my yard and hauled away instead of opening the gate and allowing it to return to it's yard.

    It's all about collecting fee's and fines and expanding Govt. control.

    (quote)"It seems as though the only people talking about the proposed ordinances are the ones who complain. We need to hear from the people who think this is a good thing, especially the city council."

    Maybe you aren't hearing from many people in favor of this because there aren't many people in favor?

  • The money for fines all goes to the school. Yes, it must certainly be a conspiracy for more government control and the school's behind it all. Maybe you should start calling those school board members and tell them you're onto their sneaky little plan. It's only logical that it's about government control... over dogs and cats. Excuse me while I take a moment to laugh hyserically about that one.

  • I have heard some positive responses to the licensing proposals. For some reason they aren't getting to the city counsel.

    Why does everything have to be a conspiracy theory?

  • Keep up the good work Ms. Strauch.

    I believe that the commie, pinko, liberals on the city council and school board just have to be behind this conspiracy.........
