Settle down is exactly right

I don’t know who you are J.L. Craig, but I loved your letter

Re: “Dog haters need to settle down a wee bit,” Letters, March 27

I don’t know who you are J.L. Craig, but I loved your letter, couldn’t agree with you more! Someone once wrote that “people who have never fallen in love with an animal have a piece of their soul that has never been awakened.” I think those of us who are fortunate enough to be able “to set a foot” in the animal world via our relationship with them, should feel great compassion for the Moaning Minnies. They know not what they’ve missed! Perspective is everything. I now vow to smile every time I see dog poop, the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.
