The rules are clear: All those enjoying the Lakewood park must be licensed, vaccinated and wearing a collar. No one said they couldn't bark. After all, it is a dog park. But a handful of nearby Rocky River residents have unleashed a lawsuit to shut down the park. They claim the pets are too doggone noisy, fight too often and, to put it bluntly, stink. What rights do dogs and their owners have? We'll talk about it Friday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
