Doggie debate: Should Fido be allowed at the Farmers' Market?

When you go to the Downtown Farmers' Market Festival and look around, it's easy to see that many furry friends are brought along, but there are those who would like man's best friend to stay at home on Thursday night.

The Downtown Partnership runs the event and has put up signs, asking people to leave there pets at home. They say there's a number of reasons for that message: it's a crowded and hot event, and many people don't clean up after their pets.

Many dog owners disagree and say they enjoy being able to bring their dogs. Owners claim they pick up after their animals and that they're not forcing their animals on anyone.

For now, the Downtown Partnership asks people not to bring animals, but there are no rules against it at this time.

    The second time my family and I went to the market, my 3 year old daughter was knocked to the cement by a dog. That was enough for us and we have no plans of going back.

    I quit going because of the dogs. Animals have no place at public functions.
