Man files suit to bring dog to naked beach

`The only cure for what ails Mark DelCore is sunbathing stark naked beside his rat terrier named Cheekies, he said in a federal lawsuit against officials on Fire Island.

The Forest Hills man said he suffers post-traumatic stress disorder and “an acute skin condition” resulting from exposure to toxins after the terror attacks on Sept. 11, according to a suit DelCore filed in U.S. District Court in Central Islip this week.

“Since my skin condition is all over my body,” DelCore said in the suit, he needs the healing rays to touch every square inch of his skin — hence his frequent 48-mile trips to Fire Island’s clothing-optional beach near Kismet. But Fire Island National Seashore says Cheekies should be like DelCore’s clothes on the beach — gone.’
