LETTER: Dogs and the beach can go hand in hand

Published: Friday, February 8, 2013 at 05:18 PM.

If simply having tags now is not enforced, who is going to bother checking to see if the tag belongs on a Maltese or a mutt? 

I've even thought about the dog tag design. Maybe they could develop something in a bright color with a pup sitting in a sling chair, drink in hand? Make it colorful and cute, and people will buy them. Maybe, a different design every year. Make them collectable; a nice souvenir from the beach.

As for the funds collected, use the bulk of it for ridding the beach of “evidence,” as my mother used to say.  Have the people doing this carry a supply of tags to facilitate enforcement.

 I love the beautiful beaches we have called our winter home for the last seven years.  I also love dogs. Both should be able to co-exist.
