Lucille: "But from the time he got the marriage license, I've led a dog's life."
Groucho: "Are you sure he didn't get a dog's license?"

Selectmen last week voted to increase fees for all dog licenses by $5. Licenses for spayed and neutered dogs will jump from $5 to $10, and licenses for dogs that have not been spayed or neutered will rise from $25 to $30.

An animal control officer who works for the town had recommended the increase only for the spayed or neutered dogs. The officer is paid on a per-call basis from the license fees.
