I pee in the park and go to jail. Your stupid dog does and everybody applauds.
Disgusting.
It wasn't your peeing in public that created the uproar. It was you licking your balls after the fact that preceded your arrest.

Hopefully, this wasn't the reason we heard drumming of music ALL GOD DAMN DAY from the park Saturday and Sunday....

Sounded like the savages were threatening the neighborhood.

Dogs love playing drums. You're screwed once the park opens up in December.

Yep. Everyone knows dogs developed drumming to try to stay warm, and keep up their morale during the cold arctic nights while enslaved by their evil sled dog masters. They also used it to keep time when they were forced, in the 1950's, to keep the large water wheels running when the streams went dry during the regular California drought seasons. The dogs were used like hamsters, and drumming was the only activity that kept them from taking their own lives.

To deny them their drumming in the park is to deny not only their cultural legacy, but also their only means of expression besides fighting and fuckking.

And that's racist, in a way. Racism is always bad, no matter how it's defined. I think we all agree on that. So stop it.

Hopefully, their idiot owners have their dogs shitting all over the dog park, rather than on my lawn, as per usual...

I'm so sick and tired of EVERYTHING being 'racist'. If you don't like it, too bad. It DID sound like the savages were getting ready to chop off some heads from those who actually RESIDE in the neighborhood. Maybe you ought to read some real news, rather than this site. You'll find I'm not exaggerating.

Well, I happen to love animals. I am sorry that you hear those noises all night long. That would not make anyone happy. My main concern is the coyotes....they are all over the park and in the wash off of Palo Verde and Conant. I have seen them walking down my street at 0800 and 7:00 p.m. at night. Everyone is scarred that they will come into their yard and not just take pets...but children...small children. I wish someone would do something about the coyotes. I heard that they did a night sweep some time ago....and it needs to be done again.

When I take my dog for a walk I have what you would call a doggie bag. Just in case....It is not right for anyone to walk their animal or animals and not carry around something to pick up their poop. Like I said I love dogs..they are friends that never get angry at us, they miss us when we are gone, they play with us and they love us unconditionally. What else could you ask for!

Call the city and complain when you see them. If I recall correctly, some kid was attacked in a Cypress by a coyote recently. More needs to be done about the problem.

PS, I know about the coyote problem first hand, they've killed at least one cat in my neighborhood for sure, and there are quite a few missing cat signs up that were probably eaten by coyotes too.

They act like they love you if you feed them. If you don't feed them, they will eat you, Paula.

Eat you.

Sorry, but we're all members of the grand circle of life. Stop acting as if you or your pets aren't in the food chain. You are nutritious. Animals salivate when they see you waddling down the street in your old man shorts. Just waiting for the right time to severe your achilles tendon, hold you by the neck until dead, and feast on your innards. You're nothing special in nature.

Did an animal eat your brain by chance?

Just keep taking your night walks, fatty. The coyotes will help you forget your worries. Nature hates wasted space.

I will be more than happy to borrow your coyotes for a few months. There are at least a half dozen cats and a few bad children roaming my neighborhood who would serve society far better by providing nutrients for our wild canine friends.

On the planet earth, someone must eat, someone must be eaten. Just because you know how to work an Iphone doesn't exclude you from nature's plan. Just because you can plop out an ugly child, doesn't mean that child doesn't qualify as a nutritious meal for an enterprising coyote and her pups.
I'm tired of people crying "a coyote ate my 2 year old," or "a coyote left my cat's guts in the driveway," like it was the end of the world. In nature, you win a few, you lose a few. Nobody's special.

The Long Beach Community Garden members were a vocal opposition against these dogs being located so near a vital source of food for so man Long Beach citizens.

The gardeners can dig up their own backyards to grow their produce
