Dear Sally: I know you’re literally just a (big) puppy, don’t respond when called, and can’t read. But please sniff out something for your owner: the Fort Williams Park unleashed dog area map that’s on the town website.

This morning we were near the overlook where the lobster food truck is located in the summer. After you unexpectedly went between my legs and I suggested your owner should put you on a leash, she responded that we were in an unleashed area (clearly not so). Then she added, “There’s a lot of dogs in this park. If you don’t like dogs you should walk somewhere else.”

Sally, I may actually like you and other dogs – but I like most humans better. And humans should be able to enjoy the park, too. Please help your owner and her friends learn and follow the leashed dog rules in Fort Williams Park. Hope to see you again – on your leash where and when required.
