Arts festivals too hot for dogs

The 2016 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and the People’s Choice Festival of Pennsylvania Arts have come and gone.

It was a very hot and humid four days for both man and beast, which brings me to why I am writing this letter.

Why do dog owners insist on bringing their family pet(s) to these outings? It is too hot!

Please, next year leave your dogs home where they can be cooler and comfortable and able to lap up a drink from their bowls when they want to. They would thank you for it if they could.

Believe me, I am a true dog lover, and I would never put my beloved family pet under such unnecessary stress.

Lynn Lasek, Boalsburg
