Report Details

a nice sunny day, with people enjoying their walk. Most dogs well behaved, whether on or off leash. Only one exception, and we suggested to owners that he needed to be on a leash. They didn't carry one. Also, suggested to 2 owners that it might be nice if they picked up after their dogs. One had a bag, the other one didn't . So owner 1 shared his stash. A big change from being by Haystack Rock during the summer. Its nice when people are thinning out. sorry this report is late. Will do better next quarter.
