Letter to Editor | Lack of Diversity Raises Its Head at Local Park

— from Tony Suruda —

I took my dogs to the off leash area on Sunday afternoon December 3rd. When we arrived there were twelve dogs in the enclosed area. Eleven were Golden Retrievers and one was a Labrador Retriever.

This indicates a severe lack of diversity.

The dogs were all well behaved. I have nothing against retrievers but I wouldn’t want my sister to marry one. I encourage owners of other breeds to bring their dogs to the Orcas Off Leash Area.

  1. Some days there are lots of Aussies or suddenly there is a Poodle park. Enjoy.Luv our new park. Thank you SJC

  2. SORRY WE MISSED THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER GATHERING. OUDIN aka ODIE WOULD HAVE LOVED THAT. Sadly we walked in a different area!

  3. OMG – sorry, we’re sorry – this is all a part of the new, global “pet neutrality” movement, where it’s ordained that each and every pet among us shall be equal. looks like retrievers are Island favorites?

  4. Affirmative action for small quiet pets!
    A tax on all retrievers to set up a commission to ensure quota compliance.
    To avoid a conflict of interest all commissioners should definitely be felines!
    ..in acknowledgement of superior intellect [and more civil toileting routines].

  5. This was a wonderful celebration of those beautiful golden retrievers 1 year old birthdays! They were all siblings coming to reunite with their parents to celebrate their special day. They were all extremely friendly and the event lasted no more than a hour or so. It really was a fun time for all of us.
