Editor: In response to Tom Tonks Sr.’s letter (The Times, June 18), he commented on the word “aggressive,” as it relates to Ed, the companion dog of Kevin Steele. I find the word to be well-chosen.
If Ed had been a human, he would have been called a bully.
I am not disputing that Ed is a companion to Steele, but I maintain that one should be able to walk in Douglas Park, Linwood Park or anywhere for that matter, without an unleashed dog coming charging at one’s own dog.
It is my understanding that Steele is now keeping his dog on a lead, and I therefore have no problem with his dog.
