Dog Scare

 

DOG SCARE Editor Dowling wrote news that was interesting, amusing, and local. No national news marred the peace of this small town newspaper. The longest story on November 19, 1897, was one which evidently aroused much excitement. “Our town had an unwelcome canine visitor last week. When first seen he was engaged in a fight with Burkhart’s dog under the store porch. From there, he took in the town generally, killing a cat and a rooster for Mrs. Harris. Then to K.B. Davis’s giving their cat and dogs a good overhauling. “Then to D. Henry’s giving his dog a shaking up and received a good hint to go from one of good old Davey’s No. 8 shoes which sent him up against the side of the house. Then to M.L. McKitrick’s killing a fine rooster. He caused no little excitement at R. Hanna’s, made it interesting for the dog and cat. Lawrence with the side of a club put the little fellow to fight. The dog would weight about 7 or 8 pounds, and was very slim, about one foot high and of a dark brown color, said to have been a ferret hound. He was shot by M.L. McKitrick which we think was a good act.” A subsequent note reports, “Several new dog houses have been built since the dog scare. Dog loafers are scarce in town now.” -Extracted from "Footprints"
