Nelson dog haters need to settle down a wee bit

I suggest Garic and the wife log into poop-phobics.com and meet other dog-haters

My heart bleeds for Gary Garic and “the wife” (“The problem is dog owners, not the dogs” letter of March 15) who could not enjoy Kokanee Creek park because, even on that enormous beach, they were “surrounded by a pack of dogs” with owners who ignored the “dozens” of signs saying: no dogs.

I, too, was there on a sunny Friday and I relished the sun on my face, the incredible view, the silver, dancing lake and the smell of spring in the air. On that vast beach I saw, over a distance, maybe four or five dogs enjoying a romp with their owners. I also noticed three or four signs and a miserable dogless couple stomping along searching the ground.

I suggest Garic and the wife log into poop-phobics.com and meet other dog-haters who are prone to exaggeration and have a morbid fascination with dog poop. You are sure to find many who live in Nelson. Among them: the couple who went to Holland in the spring and couldn’t enjoy the tulips because they saw dog poop; the couple who went to the Edinburgh festival but observed dog poop instead of pipes and drums; a woman, so obsessed, she hung out in Lakeside Park ready to take pictures of dog owners so she could show them to the police.

I am sick of the Moaning Minnies who seem to be on a campaign against dog owners with their tedious letters or slugs. Normal people love dogs. If you suffer from an affliction that makes you abnormal in this regard, then please keep the nasty effects to yourself.
