I have a request for the people who bring their dogs to public events such as the car show or other events in Elkins City Park or anywhere else for that matter. Please leave them home! Unless it is a dog show, there is no rational reason for them to be there.
I don't know what people are thinking, if they are thinking, when they decide to bring their dog to an event such as the car show. I have never seen the dog owners clean up after their dog when it has its daily sit-down even though there is a city ordinance requiring that you do.
It can't be good for the dog to be subjected to that many people. It might make them hyper and if a child were to try and pet one of the dogs, he or she might get bitten.
I ask you again, please leave them home. Thank you.
