More bark than bite

Dear Editor:

One of the surest signs of spring is finally here: the nonstop letters to the editor regarding Krabloonik.

I appreciate the sentiments of the people involved with giving the Krabloonik dogs a voice. It is a noble and wonderful thing to be concerned with people and creatures less fortunate than ourselves.

That being said, it continues to upset me to see Dan and his operation continually maligned in the letters to the editor.

He has continued in his record of meeting standards by the county and the state for his animals.

It seems to me that the people involved with this campaign need to focus on the law and having it changed, rather than continuing to attack a longtime local, law-abiding businessman. Or am I missing the point?
