I think there needs to be a separate conversation on allowing a dog on La Ropa vs. allowing a dog at a beach side restaurant on La Ropa.

It's great to see dogs playing on the beach but I surely don't want a roaming around my table when I am eating. And I am a dog owner.

You made a good point, and I appreciate you pointing out the sanitary and hygienic issue that many pet owners apparently don't consider, and/or conveniently overlook.

On a recent a.m. local Z talk show, in a discussion about trash on the streets, a caller called the public streets his "segunda casa", or second home, and of course was opposed to whatever trash it was they were discussing, to be on the streets.
I agree with the caller in calling the public walkways our "segunda casa ".
To coincide with that concept, I just don't appreciate what thousands of people do each day with their animals all over town & elsewhere, doing their "business" in my segunda casa, (even if they pick up the mess). Sorry, but that just doesn't appeal to me at all.
Like it or not, THAT is I.M.H.O., which I'm entitled to, as is anyone else who opposes it, and to conclude:
That's my "pet peeve" (PUN intended):-D

Re: "It seems EVERY dog owner thinks their dog is the best dog ever and would never cause a problem and doesn't need to be leashed, etc."

Good observation...I've noticed that, definitely, so it seems.
as if: ...my dog's S- - t doesn't stink. :omg:
At any rate, always a controversial topic with endless bickering.

The point here is to make the dog owners aware that all folks aren't comfortable with the situation as I discussed, with the dog S--T and urine all over the place, and to please do their best & take that into account. Muchas Gracias :-]
