Dog Pickle

comment

Editor:

So ... a man's brother dies, leaving three dogs adrift ("Dog Fail," Aug. 29). The man takes the dogs in and cares for them for six months, then has to move to the East Coast. Driving 3,000 miles across the United States in the heat of summer with three dogs in a packed truck is not an option. He turns to the local shelters. They are not full, yet they turn him down because the dogs are not "strays."

These are not his dogs.

He can't take them with him.

The shelters only accept "strays."

He makes strays of them.

For this he is excoriated in the press and charged as a criminal by our District Attorney. Really!? What you have rather he had done? Cut their throats?

Really.
