Town Square is an opinion column to which readers can submit their views. As a true community newspaper, we’re always looking for ways to include local thought and pertinent viewpoint, this forum is a way to share those thoughts. Civility and fair comment will always prevail.
This week, many of our readers readers responded to Dr. Donna Flaggs’ article written in memory of Elvis, a rescue cat she kept at her veterinary clinic to welcome her patients. We were reminded that it isn’t only humans who build community, sometimes our beloved pets help us to form bonds with one another.

SO SORRY: My Elvis from Taylors Island says so sorry to your Elvis. My Elvis was from Talbot Humane Society.

GRIEF: Thank you for sharing the story of your journey with Elvis. We loved how it seemed he would actually speak to us. I know he will be missed and am praying for all the staff as you continue to grieve his passing.

TRIBUTE: Sweet Elvis. I am in tears and haven’t finished my first cup of coffee. A beautiful tribute.

Our neighbors also remembered their friend Mary Calloway, who died last week. Mary was a tireless supporter of all things Dorchester. – Editor
