As a responsible dog owner, I take exception to Billy Traylor's words,"Guys, we know why they're around the houses. They're there to protect product and we all know what that product is. And then they fight them, too". I have what he is calling a big dog, and I have a fenced in yard with a hot wire around the bottom so they can't dig out, and I lock the gate, so no one can come in when I am gone. I do not fight my dog, nor do I have any "product" to protect. I am a law abiding citizen who would not even know what illegal drugs look like. If Mr. Traylor is so concerned by the illegal drug activity in the county, one would think he would help fund more officers to combat the problem. The reason I have a large dog, is for safety reasons. I have every confidence in the Gulf County Sheriff's Department, but they have lost several deputies and do not have the funding to replace them. Hmmm...who is to blame for that? Maybe you should honor the voter's wishes for county wide voting also. I am all for dog control, but do not lump all of us "large dog" owners together. Some of us are responsible.

Lets include C-A-T-S ! My neighbors cat comes into my yard and takes a crap, my neighbor who owns the cat thinks its funny. Maybe some antifreeze might make him laugh even more. Alot of people who has cats thinks they can roam the neighborhood and everybody loves them. Not me,,I had a dog and he was kept inside the house and when he went outside he was in a fenced yard.
