Re: RE: Dogs

This is why I get into a snit fit because of dogs at a ride.  So far, riders
have been appreciative of the special, semi-detached area I designate for
campers with dogs.  We do not allow dogs in the main camp, at the vet-in
site, or at the start-finish line, and dogs are to be confined at all times.
There is always someone who sneaks a dog or dogs into the main camp, but the
dogs are usually in a camper or trailer and the riders are very careful to
avoid me!  I snarl and breathe fire at people who defy our dog laws.
