Dear Town of Carleton Place– My Dog is Dead- 2nd Notice




Maybe they do put them in every envelope– maybe they don’t– but crap it still hurts.


First of all I would like to thank you for the water bill and a notice to procure a license for my dog–but my dog is dead.

Last year I received the same notice and I had a tearful conversation with someone at the town hall telling them– that my dog is dead.

I have no interest in calling someone and breaking out in tears again and telling them once again–that my dog is dead.

We didn’t bury him, nor do I have a death certificate from Barkers Funeral Home, but I can assure you once again– that my dog is dead.

I may be senile, but like other pet owners,  but receiving another notice breaks my heart as it reminds me–that my dog is dead.

I miss my boy terribly, and thousands have read  about him and the fact– that my dog is dead.

Thank you for the hope that he might be resurrected this year, as I really do wish he was too, but— my dog is dead.

This was by no means public shaming- and many thanks for your patience– just the fact– that my dog is dead.

Thank you
