Dogs deserve their own beach space

As a former resident of Summerland, my family and I had the opportunity to spend nearly a week there just recently.

Dear Editor:

As a former resident of Summerland, my family and I had the opportunity to spend nearly a week there just recently.

I enjoyed driving past familiar buildings and locations and noticing the many changes that have taken place over the years.

We particularly enjoyed the hospitality and marvellous breakfasts provided by  Brian and Elsa at Glenoka Bed and Breakfast.

And I do want to point out a fine addition to the amenities in Lowertown. And that’s the special beach area where dogs can bring their owners. It’s comforting to see a secure, safe and dedicated spot where owners can cheerfully shout “Fetch” and “Here, boy” and run back and forth without being infringed upon by others.

Would that dogs everywhere be so thoughtful in providing the same space.
