Letter to the editor- Dogs should be on leashes

To the editor- I live in the Lower Kingsbury area and access Chimney Rock to get home. Each and every day there are dogs that are roaming loose. At least once a day a minimum of 2 dogs will walk onto my yard and relieve themselves. We take pride in this area and most of us have fenced backyards. Not to mention the leash law in Nevada. I have 3 dogs of my own, but they are never allowed out our front door unless they are on a leash. I wish that people would be considerate of their neighbors who work hard to maintain our yards as our summer months are so limited and take pride in the appearance of flowers, mowed lawns and such. I realize some are older dogs and know these neighborhoods quite well, but I would not allow my dogs to roam the streets and ruin your freshly manicured yard and appreciate the same from my neighbors if nothing else, out of respect. The other concern is the curves driving on Chimney Rock where these dogs roam and are not always visible until one has turned a corner. I hope that none of these animals gets hit by a car.
