Carleton Place–Owners of dogs have now to guard themselves against the righteous penalties of the dog by-law passed by the Town Council on Monday evening.  No dog will be allowed to escape being taxed and if people do not care about paying one or two dollars a year for owning worthless curs they should send them to the dog heaven without hesitation.
