Leash ’em up

Dear Editor:

To the man in the sweatshirt that said “Retired,” who told us “too bad” when we asked him to restrain his three large dogs and to the French woman in blue, who said she spoke no English when we asked her to restrain her two large dogs, please put your dogs on a leash.

We like dogs, but not when they come racing and barking at us on the trail, especially when we are with a small child.

If you cannot be thoughtful, perhaps you can just obey the law.

And to the person who put the dog poop in a baggy, that was great. Perhaps next time you can take it with you.
