It is nearly summertime at the Jersey Shore. That’s not the best thing if you’re a dog, because the townships impose a “no dog” rule for the beaches during active summer tourist season. The beach is my favorite place IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!! I am the KING OF MY JETTIES (I have two, one south and one north – and yes, they are MINE!… I mark them regularly!)
It’s not fair that summer brings with it beach evictions for canines. I pick up my dookie, so that’s not the problem (ok, The Human picks it up, but same-same). I want to enjoy the beach when the temperatures are truly ideal for an ocean swim! Do you know how cold the Atlantic is pre-Summer? Brrr!!! I mean, I’ve got fur but eeek!
I recently posted the following graphic about seals on The Lanther’s Facebook and The Lanther’s Twitter pages, and now I post it here to further my argument in favor of a movement I call, “Paws on the Sand.”
Seals ARE just dog mermaids. So let’s follow the logic.
If seals are just dog mermaids, then dogs are land seals. Seals are allowed on the beach anytime they want. In fact, they are given the right of way by marine life officials – humans must yield and stay away. So therefore, if seals are allowed on the beach all year-long, and seals are just dog mermaids… dogs should be allowed on the beach all year-long, right? I mean, ARE YA PICKING UP WHAT I’M PUTTING DOWN? (Yes, my Human, I know you pick up what I put down, I mentioned that earlier if you paid attention).
Write a letter to your government leaders supporting “Paws on the Sand” today! And try not to drool on or eat the letter prior to mailing!
