That is what I think everytime I read that, umm which is often.

How could we survive without a little humor, a little ice cream, and a few furry friends?

Dogs and cats aren't for everybody, but I personally seem to always drift toward those who have them in their lives. They always seem so kind and nice.

QUOTE=gomoho;654971]Rubicon - what specific courses are you finding dog poop on? I have never found dog poop on a course, but plenty of cigarette and cigar butts. Have never seen or smelled dog poop at our mail station and see plenty of folks taking their pups their for a walk, and where are all these dogs running free - never witnessed that one either.[/QUOTE]

And that's a good thing.

We need dog ambassadors. Perhaps they can be an offshoot of community watch?
I have absolutely NEVER seen a dog roaming around free anyplace I've gone in TV. Please post the instances you have seen, how many, and where.

I have, however, heard lots of coyotes out on our walks. Maybe you are mistaking one for the other.

TV must have the most coddled dogs in the US. People spend $$$$$ on their care. Nobody is going to let a dog out to roam.

i believe the point of the "dear god million plus" post is to get the few indiffernt dog owners to read... not sure how often if ever they search about this actual villiage problem they create...

BTW, just curious do you feel the same about multiple post regarding health, town squares, snowbird post too? should everyone just search before posting...

so to the original poster... you did the right thing.. don't worry about the dog owners cooking their pop corn now

Default Dogs Running Loose

[QUOTE=CFrance;655014]I have absolutely NEVER seen a dog roaming around free anyplace I've gone in TV. Please post the instances you have seen, how many, and where.

2 Occasions just this last week.

On Bradford Loop this past week, man walking 2 dogs on a leash and a 3rd large dog running ahead of him all over everyones property as he pleased. Neighbor challenged him about the loose dog and in his flowers and he called the neighbor a vulgar name.

This past week wife and I walking and came thru the outside recreation area of Captivia Recreation Center just after dusk when 2 large black dogs came running across the Corn Toss area directly at us and growling. Owners were standing in yard behind shrubs, luckily they retreated after I yelled at them. Owners made no effort to apologize.

I can introduce you to these owners if you still do not believe this is true.

I think I believe you, but find it bizarre that all of us out here walking our dogs, which normally attract other dogs, never run into them? However, I would say if I lived in the south end in an undeveloped area I would proabably be guilty of letting my kids get some exercise, but I would also be there supervising and picking up the poop!

So what should be done about these loose dogs?

Apparently you have never been to Sanibel if you think this is an undeveloped area. Don't know what is meant by "I think I believe you"

The dogs owners home is directly behind the corn toss boards at the Captivia Rec. Center, the second house from the corner of Charlotte Street. Go out and me them yourself instead of just posting. Dogs are canine animals not kids.

Of course no doubt they thought we were in the wrong for walking on the sidewalk thru the picnic tables and shuffelboard courts...I will carry appropriate protection going forward.

Well, what is sarcastiball??

I was very sincere in my post. I live near there, and the thought of 2 large dogs, unleashed, coming at me growling is very awful, don't you think?
