How sad dogs and owners can't enjoy exercise in a normal way anymore. People on the beach have yelled at and cussed about my American Bulldog in front of my 5 year old. Dogs help humans emotionally and may lenghthen lives, and bans are what they get in return. Shall we ban races of theives, like we do breeds? How about punishing owners, instead of the MANY nice, innocent dogs that are currently considered for banning in HI, and not in parks and on trails alone, but entirely? I am confused and saddened by the meaness of humans. Two strange ladies actually took my picture while I was walking my dog (he looks like the "Homeward Bound" dog). They said he is a bad dog that needs banning, then they peeled out fast away from me while I was alone on my neighborhood sidewalk. The odd thing is, the most aggressive breeds I've known have never been talked about for banning - German Sheppards, Chows, Chihuhuas, Dobermans, and the MEANEST I ever came across - Weenie dogs. All dogs and mannerisms are different, just as people. I am sorry some people are ignorant about these creatures, but that doesn't make the cruelty to the dogs okay. Do your research people. Don't be ignorantly biased and fit a stereo-type of whatever is making you think so sadly, ridiculously, cruel toward dogs. I am getting afraid of people harming myself or family over this issue. What is wrong with people, and where in HI is the aloha for animals??? Next people will threaten me if I ever own a bird, and don't keep it on a leash in my backyard.

SEE! All you loonies on Kauai!!! This is called Gabaan. Japanese call it Bachi. Or simply "what goes around, comes around". This is the kind of stuff you loonies have pulled with the superferry. Now you guys are getting a taste of your own medicine. So funny. Brah, I suggest you guys get your house in order. This is just another reason why I'll never ever go and spend money on Kauai. The "patients are running the looney house". So funny.
