CHARLESTON - A courthouse has gone to the dogs - the judge's dogs to be exact.
The (Charleston) Post and Courier reported this week that some members of Dorchester County Council want Circuit Judge Diane Goodstein to stop bringing her two spaniels and Airedale to work. The council has asked the county attorney to write a letter asking that only service animals be allowed in the building.
Goodstein said her dogs are housebroken, trained and haven't soiled the courthouse. She thinks rumors about the dogs' accidents started after she got down on her hands and knees one day to clean mud tracks left by a construction worker.
