Control your dog

I don’t remember asking if your dog was friendly, so why are you telling me?

It’s idiot season again!

I don’t remember asking if your dog was friendly, so why are you telling me?

Oh yeah, because you have no control over your dog and it’s running all over the beach bothering people. Also, you yelling at it is quite soothing and tranquil to everyone around.

My daughter is deaf and special needs and has been laying on the waters edge of Qualicum Beach for 18 years. She couldn’t care any less about the friendliness of your dog. As a matter of fact, she can’t hear you when you tell her. To me it’s something she should not have to worry about.

To the crusty old dude who told her care worker to keep my kid away from his yappy mutt, you get the First Idiot award.

To the lady who’s dog fought with another dog that was on a leash then ran up and harassed people on their beach blanket, then proceeded to run over, crap beside my daughter, then you asked my wife if she had a plastic bag, you are awarded Second Idiot.

Third Idiot has to go to the woman who comes every summer, lets her little black dog run up to every one’s beach blankets everyday, while standing with hands on hips saying absolutely nothing.

I once watched your neighbour take matters into his hands and went and got your dog off the beach. The list is endless and will no doubt never end.

I find it’s always good to meet the owner so I can forgive the dog.
