No Dogs!

Yesterday we drove to Sutherlin to go birding at Plat I Reservoir.  As we entered the park I was surprised to see this new sign “Dogs Prohibited between April 15 – September 15”. I decided to take a photo so I would have a reminder of the effective dates.  When I got out of the car with my camera, Buster jumped out too and I guess you could say, expressed his opinion.


  1. Why would they restrict it only for certain months?

  2. I believe it’s probably to protect nesting birds. We could hear a lot of Pied-billed Grebes along the shore line yesterday. And in the past I have seen Canada Geese with their young. In general, probably a good idea from what I have seen with people with big dogs out of control, but not little Buster. :)
