“I live Washoe Valley and love it! Like many people, I walk my dogs at the main beach (off Lakeshore). I’m unhappy to see more and more people are not picking up after their dogs in the area. I don’t want to be accused of being overly sensitive, but the reason there are less places to walk our dogs is that people do not pick up after them. Now your dogs go off in in the sagebrush, I’m not going to quibble, but on the beach and where people walk, try too pick up after them. This seems to occur in other areas of the park too, but it seems to be worse at the beach. Other than being unpleasant, we want to keep Washoe Valley beautiful—and wild, don’t we?
Maybe I’m missing something. What do other people think?”
