Enjoying another day out.
I suppose every now and again someone comes along who has an uncontrollable need to give advice on what they think others should do in life.
If you missed it, Doug and Sheila's comment / missive to my post titled "Depoe Bay: World's Smallest Harbor" states, "It is such a shame that you are missing so much in your travels. You have mentioned several times now about not seeing things because of the dogs. Why don't you put them in a crate in the motorhome? They will stay cool with the A/C and should last all day without needing to go out. They can't chew anything while you are gone if they are in a crate and if you leave a radio on they probably won't bark either. This would allow you to see the things you are missing and it won't hurt the dogs at all. You shouldn't let the dogs control your life to this extent."
I don't know the commentator(s), identified as Doug and Sheila though they have given advice on several other of my posts before this one. The blog is somewhat a public forum, however, and anyone who is interested in it may leave comments. I invite comments, look forward to receiving them and most are enjoyable to receive. Of course, this one was not enjoyable. It was, instead, simply stupid unsolicited advice by uninformed people with little else to do with their own time.
Not to worry -- Wayne and I have not and will not succumb to Doug and Sheila's instruction to "put them in a crate". Instead we will continue to go along our merry way, enjoying our retirement travel, seeing and doing absolutely everything we want to see and do -- happily with Lexie and Ozzie in tow.
