Readers rave about Halloween kids, rant about dog left alone

RAVE To all of the wonderful trick-or-treaters who came to our house on a beautiful Halloween night — lots of excited children in great costumes!

RANT To my next-door neighbor, who normally chooses to be away on Halloween, which is fine, but this time he left his dog unattended in his back yard that night. The poor dog was frantic, barking incessantly all evening at the people and activity going on next door. Not only was the dog upset, so were some of the kids.
