” Our town cops and Sheriff came to the beach this week to escort a local and his 15-year-old beagle off the beach. (There were 5 other folks on the beach at the time.)I sure wish this kind of attention was paid to kids driving golf carts, littering tourists and speeding vehicles. It appears there are a few big-mouthed cry babies in town that don’t care for animals. First it was the cats, now the dogs….
….sad how the town is starting to change.
... it really is… I can only imagine how the folks that have been here forever must feel. Tourists definitely rule-huge changes in my 7 years.
….some that we know, who have been there 25 yrs + say it has become a town that they would never would have settled in. Transient tourist towns typically lose their charm and the peacefulness that draw most in the first place. I have lived in two different areas that this happened too…and I see it happening now. That is unfortunate. We loved CC and staying in town a few years ago, is what drew us in and encouraged us to buy a home and start a business on the Shore. Hope the locals can keep it a wonderful , peaceful and friendly place. “– This conversation took place on the Mirror Facebook page.
Is this really happening? Of course, some rat probably called this in and the Five-O has to do its job–but leave the old beagle alone.
Yes, dogs are banned from the beach during the day, but why is that again? It’s stupid. Enforcing it is even more stupid…wait until we get a leash law.
Does anyone really care if they see a dog on the beach? Really? The people that seem to be the most worried about it don’t go to the beach and don’t even live in the historic district.
Note: Last Sunday, I watched a couple drag a cooler and beach chairs right over the dunes, flattening the grass as they plowed through. The guy never noticed the beach fence and tripped over it. I was sitting in the water and thinking, “For real dude? Are you really doing this now?” This seems a lot more inconvenient than using the pass-through areas.
Is this really the kind of town we want? Is it?
