Seattle Times letters to the editor

Talking about the UW Dawgs

Objectionable language

University of Washington officials gave reporters a sneak peek at the renovated Husky Stadium on Aug. 28. [Dean Rutz, The Seattle Times.]

This may be silly, but who told The Seattle Times they should call the University of Washington’s Huskies “dawgs”? [“Dawggone it: Stadium blocked till Saturday,” page one, Aug. 27.]

This is neither a colloquial Northwest language usage, nor is it cute.

I object to it on both grounds.
