I love dogs, too. But they are on the beach ALL day long. We’ve been here since Monday. Every single day dogs are on the beach any time of the day. And — most of the owners DO NOT LEASH THEIR DOGS. Our daughter-in-law is a veterinarian and she also finds this appalling. Not everyone is a fan of animals coming right up to you and sniffing you as you sit quietly on the beach. We also have young grandchildren who are not thrilled to have animals run right up to them. Other people have dogs that are dog-reactive and also have a right to be on the beach. Please, please, please — leash your dogs. AND clean up after them. It’s not pleasant to have to dodge dog doo.
