LETTER: Irresponsible dog owners will never change


Re: Hundreds are breaking dog ban, letters, July 10.

I started thinking what it would be like for the dog and what their reaction would be if they knew their owners weren’t as law-biding as they thought. I, for one, love dogs (pit bulls, not so much).

They really are a person’s best friend. They’re loyal, cuddly, cute, always ready for a walk, you throw balls for them and they bring it back. And many would give their lives to save a family member in danger.

Does it get any better than that? I would love to ask them, the dogs, why their owners treat them and others around them with such disrespect.

Surely it’s not the dogs dragging their owners to the promenade for their walk. They’re a dog, they don’t know any better.

I have weighed in on this subject many times in the past and really, I don’t care anymore if dogs are allowed on the promenade. It is what it is, and irresponsible dog owners abound. That will never change regardless what responsible owners may say.

Perhaps it would be better if we could convince the dogs to leave their owners chained up at home. Life would be so much simpler. In the meantime, I’ll just sit back and watch the fireworks. Poor dogs.
