Letters: Fellow dog owners pay heed

Dog poop landmines in neighbourhood rile home owner

Thank you for being diligent and responsible for picking up your dog’s “doo.” To all the inconsiderate and irresponsible dog owners, shame on you! In my neighbourhood, on Whiffen Spit and else where, there are ever increasing piles of dog poop on the sidewalks, on people’s lawns as well as in parks and other public areas.

Have you, even once, thought of your family, friends, neighbours and the workers who maintain our public spaces that have to step around or over (hopefully not in) these “landmines?” Clearly not. Your dog will also undoubtedly step into these piles as well, then track it into your own home.

As for the owners who pick up after their dog then leave the bag for someone else to deal with, please have the decency to go back, pick it up and dispose of it properly. Forgot a bag? Then mark the spot and please return to clean it up.

We should all strive for a clean and healthy community for everyone, including our pets. It’s the right thing to “doo!”
