Re: Border-collie jamboree cancelled following concerns, July 24
Every year Westcoast Border Collies invited the media to share the event. They never came but are now pulling crap out of their rear to write.
This group is eco-friendly. The border collies all stay in an area the size of half a football field.
Most are obedience-, agility- or other dog-sports champs. All remain close to and obey their owners. All are in good health, all have their vaccinations and are parasite-free.
Because of the late morning start time most have already eliminated and do not soil the beach. If, by chance, there is an accident it is removed immediately.
The dogs do not chase the birds as the tide is fully out.
It is a wonderful teaching experience to see 100-plus dogs playing well together, staying together and obeying their owners.
The group leaves the beach in pristine condition.
The contributors to your article should be ashamed and retract their comments. Or, better yet, get down to the beach and pick up the trash, broken glass and excrement that humans leave.
