As a dog owner in this beautiful town I often feel like a second-class citizen. I’ve been abused and shouted at as my dog has peed, sat in the water (in doggy legal bits) or walked on a lead with flowers round her neck.
She has also badly burnt her paws and mouth from a piece of wood still red hot from a fire on the beach which was only lightly covered with sand, the fire still being hot enough to re-ignite.
The issue that Ralph and Rennie Johnson raise is about signage and people choosing to ignore or abide by these rules, be them dog owners, people drinking alcohol, littering, lighting fires, not picking up their dog’s or (as seems to be prolific) their own excrement!
