Please clean after your pet

As a dog owner, I know the importance of being a RESPONSIBLE dog owner.

Dear Editor,

As a dog owner, I know the importance of being a RESPONSIBLE dog owner. That being said, I am also prepared when I take my dogs out for a walk.

I live in a neighbourhood that has many people who walk their dogs on a regular basis.

I really don’t appreciate people who take their dogs out and don’t bring anything with them to clean up after their pets when nature calls.

With all this snow melting, I have found many “land mines” that sure don’t belong to my dogs.

To me, this is just rude.

The fact that I can watch people let their dog do their business on my lawn from my window, and then watch them walk away makes me angry.

Why should I have to clean up after your pet. I have two of my own to clean up after.

They even have these handy thing to attach to your leash that have little baggies in them for this reason.

So, I ask all you dog owners out there, please pick up after your pet.

You decided you wanted the responsibility to own a dog, you need to take responsibility for their messes, too!
