I have been following the debate on dogs on the promenade. It seems to be about 50-50 for and against.
I do not own a dog and don’t really mind one way or another. But what I do mind is people who blatantly ignore No Dogs Allowed signs on the pier. My husband and I were walking on the pier recently and five people/couples were walking their dogs on the pier.
Toddlers were toddling and children were running and it was very crowded. One little girl was having a lovely time and then she tripped over a dog’s leash. The couple looked more concerned about their dog than the little girl.
The promenade is one thing, but the pier?
Obviously, people are going to do what they want and ignore the signs. It isn’t enough for some that they can now walk their dogs on the promenade, they are going to walk them on the pier, too.
