Super Restrictive Dog Law On The North Fork To Be Eased—Thank God.

In Southold, people who own dogs will soon be allowed to legally walk them on the beach. This is something that I’ve always wondered why people are against it. How can you be against a dog on the beach? That’s a wonderful thing. It’s like three people in the entire world complain about a dog on the beach and for some reason all the laws get changed where we can’t have a wonderful animal running on the beach and playing in the surf.

Over on the North Fork, it is completely illegal to bring your dog to the beach thanks to one guy who was attacked by two dogs running on the beach and complained about it.

Ah, the good old fashioned rule of, “If something unusual and strange happens to ME, then it must be banned for everybody.”

Anyway, that law is now considered too restrictive, (Duh) and now a vote is coming in to ammend the law, which would allow owners of dogs to bring them to the beach on leashes.

Well God bless the judicial system. I say let them run free completely. What’s next? We don’t allow children to the beach? Maybe we should ban all seagulls too. Perhaps the only people allowed on the beach are cranky old men who think everybody and everything else around them is a problem that needs to be solved with new ridiculous laws that only benefit them. If we did that, they would probably figure out a way to ban themselves and we could get rid of these morons from ruining things for everybody else.

I’m sorry, but there is something wrong with you if you don’t like dogs. You need to get your head examined if you seriously don’t like them.

  1. I think its gross to allow the dogs on the beach! They urinate, then my
    kids are scratching around in that sand. You can clean up and bag the
    poop, not the pee… Very unsanitary

      Seagulls poop and pea on the beach all day long and nobody cleans up after them except nature. Maybe we should shoot them all and ban them from the beach? Call your local politician!

      Millions of people walk along the beach, exposing their bare feet on the sand and many of them have athletes foot. Maybe we should require that everybody wears sandals on the beach! Call your congressman!

      Please lady. All that needs to happen is enforcement of dog owners picking up after their dogs and placing the waste in the garbage and enforcement of loud or dangerous dogs removed from public places. Problem solved.

  2. I’d say we have WAY more pee from kids in the sand than we do from dogs… especially on those beaches that don’t allow dogs. Human pee is GROSS!

    Last summer, on a bayside Southold beach, I was engrossed in a book when a wet, sandy dog on no leash came over and trampled everything – the owners were extremely apologetic. I just laughed. In so many ways it was a pleasant interruption! I do think a dog should be trained to respond to its owner’s commands; if not, then a leash is best. As for the risk of a kid playing in urine, just move your child over a bit. Urine is virtually sterile, after all.
    Now, as a resident here, I have to ask for more information. “Super Restrictive Dog Law on the North Fork to be Eased” – that header promises more than the article delivers. Which legislative body is doing the easing, and when? Is this definite, or speculative?

      Couldn’t agree more!

      Complain about the bad individuals, stop making laws that hurt good people who are doing something responsibly.
