Anti-dogism at the Saugerties car show

David Radovanovic, who writes a blog about Saugerties, experienced discrimination against canines firsthand today when he walked his dog Stevie through the Sawyer Motors Car Show. Perturbed, Radovanovic eventually found justice in the form of a sympathetic police officer:

I approached Bob Siracusano of Sawyer Motors (the show's organizer) and he stated that it was the police that made the restriction. One thing lead to another and after engaging Saugerties Village [Lieutenant] Tom Rea, he demanded, "did your dog crap on the sidewalk?" Well the rest of the conversation went down hill and after shouting at each other, he told me to "stay right there" (pointing to the corner Exchange Hotel) while he found out more. He returned and said that "dogs were allowed".
