Dog Advocates to Address Watertown City Council About Dog Ban Ordinance - Time Warner Cable News

   Canine advocates are out tonight at City Council, or so says Time Warner.  The issues are familiar whenever Scott Gates speaks but he is persistent.

   A dog park and repeal of the no dogs at public assembly ordinance.

This Gates guy would make a good school superintendent. Get your budget voted down and then just keep putting up until it gets voted in.

Mr. Gates is of the same brain wave as Don Hassig, Russ Finley and company.. Very booksmart and good people until you disagree and have any views other than theirs. What happens next is usually involving law enforcement.

I am so tired of hearing this guy. He's like a record that keeps skipping. No I don't want the public assembly ordinance banning dogs repealed. Let him find another place to socialize his dog where I won't be. If he wants a dog park let him build it AND maintain it. Does he expect city taxpayers to maintain it? Tax money is spent on what benefits all, not the few.

Anyone questioning why Scott Gray does not have any photos of people his own age. Something a bit odd. I mean even front and center at a highschool party.

Why keep allowing it? said...

Scott (even meaning well) has put many in a hard spot around town. He hangs around pet shop doors handing out fliers. Corp. stores that hate to tell him to go away. But customers walk in and complain that he is harassing them. I don't think the City Police want to act against him. But in a rock and a hard place (soon) he is going to end out ridding away in the back of a car one of these times. City leaders don't want to tell him he is not right. In some cases he is right. In most he is just hating the law as it's written and won't take no for an answer. He is a broken record. Time to ban him from the meetings. He wastes the City's time.

What does Gates do for a living? I hear he is "disabled" but seems he can go to all council meetings, fly to Europe. Must be a terrible disability.

There really is no reason to be mean to Scott. But I have to agree he has wasted enough time on it. Think if he had used all that time to fund raise for (say cancer), there would be cure now.

I saw him walking his dog into the kite day festivities. The poor dog could barely walk and I'm sure didn't give two sh..s about socializing with people that day.

Now I ask you all...what kind of person uses an ailing pet to try and drive home a point no one gives a crap about by purposely confronting police? I know what my opinion is.

Hopefully tonight was his last hurrah and he dries up and blows away!

909pm....Much of your point is dead on. Most dogs would suffer at a large concert or Kit Day. They would be nervous due to all the activity. Maybe have a hard time drinking enough water. Crappy food dogs shouldn't eat. It would just suck for a dog. I know Scott cares about his dog. But yes it must have been bad for it. Just Scott being upset must have worked on the dog's day. Dogs know when we are messed up and nervous. They don't have a good time with that. It just becomes a protest that hurts the ting you are caring about the most. The dog.

Than he doesn't seem to understand the real problem. Sure his little dog won't be such a problem to anyone. Kids will pet it. People will say (how cute). Everything is good. Add a large dog to the bunch of people trying to fly a kite. O and a moron with little to no care in his mind. Walking the brute into everyone. Not a worry about the dog taking a kid's face off. Just there for the fun of people looking at him and his rather large untrained dog. Walking all over the place making so much fun for everyone else. Yes thank God he brought it.

You can not have one without the other. Just that simple. So you have to say no to all. That's how the law works.
