Dog shouldn’t have been punished with shoelaces

I was heartbroken when I read the article Aug. 30 in the paper where a Sarah B. Boothby tied shoelaces around her dog’s nose because he chewed up her shoelaces and then posted a picture on Facebook.

How cruel!

You could see by the picture how sad the dog looked. I am glad Facebook complained as well as others.

That dog didn’t deserve that treatment. No, the dog shouldn’t have chewed the laces, but get over it Sarah!

I have two cats and they are my family and I have spoiled them. I bless the day they came into my life.

I have zero tolerance for people who abuse animals, children and elderly people. I prayed for Sarah and her dog in hoping this will never happen again.
