Selfish minority want dogs on ‘our beautiful beaches’

Last week's Packet had me smiling. Once again a member of Falmouth's selfish minority of dog owners had put forward a (once again) 'seemingly' reasonable plea and plan to get their dog back on our beautiful beaches.
Unfortunately for them, their letter literally followed a third of a page article entitled 'Dog Mess Misery' highlighting the vile problems the poor souls of Flushing and Mylor are having with dogs, and feckless owners.
So I don't feel I need to write much more, except perhaps, to point out, that last week's correspondent mentioned meeting a 'delightful' couple from London, walking their dog on the fields above Gylly beach. Yes, that's right, fields, just above Gylly beach, where you can walk your dog. Fields with fabulous views of sea, sky and sometimes sun.
Fields where your dog can run, slobber, growl, and mess to its heart's content. And I can't do anything about it. And I'm okay with that.
