LETTERS: Gone to the dogs

I think it’s really too bad that some dog owners ruin it and cause problems for the owners that are respectful.

You know, I don’t presently own a dog, but I have in the past.

I think it’s really too bad that some dog owners ruin it and cause problems for the owners that are respectful.

But, what is it with some owners that they feel they can allow their dogs to run without a leash and miles ahead of the owner?

No control what-so-ever of the dogs, like the Australian shepherd and Italian greyhound the other day; chasing the ducks and getting into residents yards, running on the beach. There are signs at Skaha Beach. Not just one, but a number of them, stating all dogs must be on a leash, and not allowed on the beach.

Yet, owners feel that because of the time of year, it doesn’t matter if their dogs are on the beach, defecating and peeing, even if the owner does clean it up.  There are specific areas that are dog-only areas, at beaches too.

One on Okanagan Lake by the art gallery and the other at Sunoka.  Is it so inconvenient for these dog owners to go there?

Maybe you shouldn’t have a dog.
