Letters: Just say ‘yes’ to dog park

Oh my god, another dog free park. Come on, give us a break Sheila.

Oh my god, another dog free park. Come on, give us a break Sheila.

There are probably more dog lovers out there than not. You must be one that is a non dog lover.

I understand that this issue with the dog mines are becoming a problem, cause I also get upset about the lazy dog owners out there, but look around you and see how many dogs and dog owners are enjoying  getting out with their dogs and socializing and enjoying nature.

All dogs on Whiffen, at least 90 per cent, all get along, small or large, weak or strong. Let’s not wreck that because of a few lazy people. These are people that don’t like responsibility or care about others. Oh, by the way, there are also many non dog owners on Whiffin too and I talk to them and they all enjoy the many different breeds that walk by and want to pet them or talk to the owners.

I see these few dog owners who pretend not to notice, but I usually make a point of commenting nicely to them. To those owners who don’t care,  if you keep it up you will have a no dog park all over Sooke. Where will you take your dog then?  Langford is getting to be a non dog park community. My son has said he has to drive his dog a couple miles to find a place, even on a leash. Is that what we want? Please say no to NO dog parks.
