Littlehampton beach is not just for dogs

While using the promenade at Littlehampton, I have suffered dogs jumping at me while running, bumping into me while walking and dashing in front while cycling.

Last week, while drying off after a swim, a man came right down with two dogs to where I was despite the adjacent beaches being empty. I had to push them away as they started licking me, which I feel is unhygienic and do not like.

The owner did not like this and called me Mr Grumpy!

We then had a flaming row, which spoilt my morning. Dog owners should realise that, not everybody wants to make a fuss of their dogs and that the seafront is not just one big dogs’ toilet, but they’re for all to enjoy.
