Clean up after dogs

As a dog owner I walk my dog and when she does her business,

Dear Editor:

As a dog owner I walk my dog and when she does her business, I pick the poop up and put it in the trash. We never let our dog run loose and either my husband or I is with her at all walk times.

We have a beautiful front yard and have worked hard to make it so and we are proud of it. Someone with a dog lets their dog come into our yard and do its business but the owner does not come into our yard and clean it up.

In Ponoka there is a dog bylaw and I believe dogs are not to be running at large for any reason.

Please be informed pictures may be taken as we are in the process of installing a camera or two to take pictures of our front yard from dusk to dawn. We are also considering having a friend’s wolfhound tied to one of our bushes or trees to take care of your wonderful dog, which may cause you to have some veterinary bills.

Remember to smile when you are waiting for your dog to do its business in our yard. You could very well be on camera. After all, our yard is private property.

Marg Derksen
