I AM to­tally against al­low­ing dogs on beaches ( C-M, Oct 10), whether on a leash or not.

Chil­dren play on beaches with buck­ets and spades mak­ing sand cas­tles.

Dogs on beaches run into the wa­ter and, in­vari­ably, defe­cate in a dis­gust­ingly runny man­ner, and their own­ers would need a shovel and a garbage bag to pick up their drop­pings.

Most will ei­ther ig­nore it or cover it up, and chil­dren will come along af­ter­wards and build a sand cas­tle full of re­volt­ing, germ-in­fected dog­gie doo-doo.

Who­ever came up with this stupid idea must have never seen a dog on the beach. Gerry White, New Farm
