Dear Astoria: Your Stray Needs an Owner
This letter was published today in the NY Times:
July 18, 2004
To the Editor:
If the people in Astoria are so concerned about Babe,
the stray dog in their neighborhood ("A Handsome Stranger and the Hearts
He's Won," July 11), they'll get him off the street. A dog faces the mean
streets with helplessness and fear. Danger is everywhere, as is loneliness.
When he roams, he might not find his way back. And he
will never get a good night's sleep; he must be "on guard" at all times,
watching for predators and abusers.
A dog needs only a pat on the head and some food, and
he'll be the most loyal and loving friend on earth. People of Astoria,
please find him a home.
