Dog Days In Salem
vickie walker introduced legislation to allow dogs in the state capital (as if there aren’t enough already) and, surprisingly, not everyone agrees with her:
One lawmaker who told her he wouldn’t support it was Rep. Wayne Krieger, R-Gold Beach.
“I have three dogs and I love them, but I don’t want dogs under my seat, peeing on the wall or leaving mangy hair everywhere,” he said. “This is the Capitol. It’s not a doghouse.”
Ya know, if this is krieger’s understanding of dogs I certainly feel sorry for the three he owns. Perhaps he needs a visit from pet protective services and the good folks of Gold Beach might reconsider sending him to the Salem doghouse in the future.
