Millenials were the generation molded by the baby boomers. Perhaps you should start studying there to determine the reasons why millenials are so attached and empathetic for their animals.

I think some of your posts are reflective of the reason why people love animals over surly curmudgeons.

My grandfather passed away 20 years ago at 85. He had two German Shepherd dogs that went everywhere with him. He fed them from his plate, he cooked their dinner every night, and to be honest he showed them love that he was incapable of showing many other people. This is not a generational problem.
OP I hope you find a good place to take your dog off leash. One of my dogs is very social and loves the water. I can’t wait until I can take him for his runs on the shore although he will be leashed because I do not want to risk him going too far in the water. Poor guy sinks like an anchor and hates his life vest. We are currently looking for a home in the St Augustine beach area and I checked into pets on the beach. It seems that most places around there will allow leashed dogs which is great considering some places do not allow dogs at all.

If by surly curmudgeons you mean people who have enough sense to see what's happening (pet worship is simply not normal...stop acting like it is), then by all means!

Save the humans!

Not normal is coming onto a thread where someone innocently asks about pet friendly areas of a city they are moving to and spinning it into how crazy people are for "worshiping" their dogs.

On the subject of dogs, I have a Rottweiler who's very sweet & loves the neighborhood children in my neighborhood. Upon first glance, people think he's a vicious killer dog but my dog warms up to people relatively quick. At the same time, my dog is very good at sensing unsavory people and reverts to his vicious side. Love him like my own child, and I don't care what others think of it.

Old men that never would have changed their own children's diapers. People pushing dogs in baby carriages, sending them to the doggy pool. Going to the dog park to socialize with the other dogs. Last weekend I was eating breakfast at the Beach Diner here in town and there was a woman kissing and loving her dog up. Right in her chair, up on the table. If that was not gross enough, just think someone else is going to eat at that table in a few minutes. I see them in the grocery store now, at home depot, at my bar where they get into dog fights as there are so many. In the parking lot at the mall there are a bunch of cars just idling away to keep the AC going to keep the dog cool they insisted must go everywhere with them. Just pay attention to the TV for a moment. Dogs are being inserted into almost every advertisement. There is always a dog story now on the nightly news. Yes 30 minutes of world news and some of that time seems to always be a dog story!! I could keep going on like this but, you see what I am getting at. Something has gone awry. Something is not right. This is a symptom of a much larger issue. I don't know what it is exactly, maybe people feel unloved in the modern world by other people. Whatever it is I find it troubling. In regards to the question, here on Amelia Island you CAN NOT have your dog off the leash. If you let your dog run on the beach unleashed and get caught it is $200 fine. They do patrol for this as last year a woman was mauled by a loose dog....and please do not respond with, my dog would never do that. Everyone says that, which is why the rules are in place.

you must live a sad life... Dogs are the greatest. Yeah I feel the same way about children as you do about dogs. The world is overpopulated and yet people are still creating them. Why are there so many and why would anyone want one. Gross. At least with dogs you are saving a life, rather than taking up space by creating an unnecessary one.

Because most humans are awful, awful people. Case in point

Dogs are wonderful.

You've done more to make my point than you'll ever know. You also need a serious mental health evaluation.

Hi-I can tell you that Atlantic Beach will allow dogs, leashed, during all hours of the day. The only time the dog can be unleashed is when he/she is in the water and you must have complete control of the dog. Jacksonville Beach will not allow dogs, at all, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the busy summer months but they can be leashed any time from October to March. Neptune Beach has the same rules as Jacksonville Beach. In St. Johns County, dogs are allowed on all beaches (leashed) except for Anastasia State Park. Basically, the dog has to be leashed and only allowed on some beaches during certain times. I personally love Atlantic Beach and Hanna Park beach. Good luck!
