‘Scuffy’ ap­pre­ci­ates Man­teca dog park

Manteca Bulletin - - Opinion - Scuffy An­der­son Man­teca

Edi­tor, Man­teca Bul­letin, I am writ­ing this let­ter in re­sponse to Mr. Du­ran’s let­ter com­plain­ing about the new dog park.

My Dad is 71 and also a vet­eran. One of his many ef­fects from Viet­nam is PTSD. I know that spend­ing time with me re­ally helps him. When he takes me to the dog park I can run around and play with other dogs and he can re­lax and talk to the other peo­ple there. I don’t go there just to poop. But when I do he picks it up as do the other peo­ple do for their dogs.

We live in a se­nior mo­bile home park and I don’t have much of a yard I can run around in. I thank Man­teca very much for their dog park.

And last, I want to tell Mr. Du­ran not to get a dog as he sug­gested. A dog would give him un­con­di­tional love and I don’t think he would know how to re­turn it.
