Beach dogs

First day on the beach this year I had a dog creep up on me and stick his nose in my face — frightened the life out of me.

First day on the beach this year I had a dog creep up on me and stick his nose in my face — frightened the life out of me.

Then a lady shows up with two rambunctious mutts that proceed to run completely out of her control and harass a couple who did have their dog under control. Oh, and thank-you for allowing your dog to take a leak on my paddle board.

Having said all that, remember not everyone loves your dog, not everyone wants to interact with your dog and, finally, not everyone wants to listen to your dog barking continuously. So in consideration of others on the beach, keep your pets under complete control and away from people who have not requested you dogs nose in their face.

Thank-you for your immediate attention to this request.
