Letters: Dog toilet appalling

Dogs use Whiffin Spit Park as place to relieve themselves

Although I’ve lived in Sooke for many years now, today was my first experience at Whiffin Spit Park. I just never made the time to get down there before. What a beautiful chunk of real estate that is…nice views in all directions. The pathway is nice – clean gravel on a level surface. I wanted to stray off the path to the beach areas however… and that’s when I had to re-learn the game of hopscotch, in order to avoid all the dog turds that richly decorate the sides of the pathway for it’s entirety. No size or breed of dog is excluded from representation down at Whiffin Spit it seems. There were Chihuahua sized cigars, medium offerings from the likes of bigger spaniels,etc., and one particular set of five or six fatties that must have come from a Saint Bernard, judging by the overall beam and length of the individual set members.

Nice landscape down there, but it’s one big dog toilet, unfortunately.

Is there another really nice waterfront park in Sooke where people can go that isn’t caked in dog mud?
