"Stranded foreign tourists" first to brave the sea in Pattaya - no deckchairs in sight, few on the beach

But all the soi dogs that were apparently also there don't ?

I wouldn't be concerned about dogs on leashes so long as the owner(s) clean up after them. But packs of filthy, wild soi dogs ? I encounter some now and then when I'm out walking in the neighbourhood and more than a few have tried to take a nip at my Achilles only to beat a hasty retreat the moment I turn to face them. 

Of course I'm sure the ones on the beach are all clean, well behaved and "pottie trained". 

Nothing worse than walking on the beach and stepping in your dogs pee-pee.

 

Dogs like to mark their spots where ever they go.

"dog <deleted> and s h it" is the least of your worries.  Governments world-wide and especially in Thailand know that SARS-Cov-2 breeds like rabbits in beach sand and stealthily awaits for foreign tourist to lies down to be infected.  And the Covid-beasties will inhabit the sand for the rest of eternity - always a threat to unwary tourist.  Not like dog doo which eventually turns into fertilizer and nourishes palm trees. 
Dog doo good; Sand-loving SARS-Cov-2 bad.

So!  We need "Rules!".  Lots and lots of rules.  And the government knows that Rule Loving Tourists will flock to Thailand by the millions by October and a New Normal Wealthy Thailand will live happily ever after! 
The End. 

Please volunteer and step on all the dog doo with your sandels.

Ah, so beaches all over the world are just for people.  I didn't know that. It flies in the face of all logic and fact, but hey, don't let that stop you saying it.   

10 beaches in a row where I live.

 

The smallest one can have dogs, provided you clean up the poop.

 

The rest have a $500 fine for letting your dog on the beach.

I forgot to add, I have never seen my dogs leave cigarette butts on a beach, or disguarded beer cans and bottles, or left over food.  I have yet to see them have drunken parties, or fight or fornicate on the beach.  I have never actually seen them peeing in the sea, or pumping raw sewage into it,  I have never seen them drop litter of any kind on a beach. I have seen plenty of 'people' do all those things.   

2 wrongs don't make a right.

I thought Pattaya beach at sunset last night was looking as good as I've ever seen it, reasonable amount of people spread along it, loads on the promenade exercising or relaxing. The reduced traffic along beach road and the clear views without the associated air pollution just adds to the pleasant feel beach wise.  I'll enjoy it while it lasts before the inevitable Chinese invasion starts again.

Have seen many soi dogs on Jomtien beach running free. To get self rightous over pets and their habits is a bit over the top.

Agreed; pet owners need to train their animals to use only their own property as a toilet, not public spaces, be it beaches, parks or pavements.

Most pet owners don't want poop in their property and train their pets accordingly.

If you haven't seen dogs fighting and fornicating on the beach you need to get out more. But I totally agree with the rest. People are the ones [email protected]$king up the planet. Leave the animals alone.

Will they put stands up by the water's edge to hang your mask on when swimming? Or will people just leave them on the beach above the high tide mark?

The good news is that I will be socially distancing from Pattaya's beach and sea by at least 300 miles forever🤔

Only Russians are foolish enough to swim in the dirty water.  🤮

Hang on, you took your dogs for a run on the beach and you think that does not bother people.

 

It would bother me.

I wish my neighbour would take his dogs for a run on the beach!

I was talking about domestic pets, not soi dogs, but I get your point.
