To the Editor:
Although I am not a pet owner myself, I understand why people like to have those animals. They are boon companions, loving, and most of all they are never judgmental.
I also can appreciate the fact that individuals in positions of leadership can be somewhat isolated from the community at large and therefore especially in need of the support that companion animals provide.
Those things being granted, as a United States citizen, I greatly resent having my tax dollars provide a fancy home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for Vladimir Putin’s orange-haired lapdog.
