Daily Rant&Rave: Dogs aren’t allowed on Seattle beaches

RAVE To the two gentlemen who saw my car keys fly two floors down the outdoor staircase at REI at night, in the dark. The keys had landed in the mud, and the gentlemen pointed the spot out to me and offered to climb over the railing to retrieve them. It was my goof, so I climbed over and got the keys while they watched to make sure I did it safely. Thanks for your thoughtfulness!
RANT To all the dog owners who walk right past the numerous “No Dogs Allowed on all Seattle Public Parks Beaches” signs at Golden Gardens and elsewhere. This city ordinance applies to all dogs on all Seattle Parks beaches — it doesn’t matter if they’re leashed or not. You and your dog are not a special exception! I love dogs, but there are excellent reasons for the pups not to be on our lovely beaches.
