News item: On the popular tourist Island of Cyprus on the Mediterranean, authorities are looking for suitable beaches where people can bring their dogs without interfering with the enjoyment of other beachgoers.
Dogs love to run along the beach. Owners love to take them. There was a time not long ago when dogs and people could run free along the sand.
The dog population grew. Some people didn’t take the responsibility for them. And so today the world’s beaches usually prohibit dogs or confine them to only a small stretch. These stretches quickly become foul smelling and strewn with minefields.
If people would clean up after their dogs, there would never be a problem sharing the sand.
But as my daughter says: “I’m sorry, this is the Age of Poop Everywhere. You want the Age of Personal Responsibility. Down the hall, third door on your left!”
I don’t know where she gets her sarcasm.
