Stinking Dog Owners
Now let me be quite clear right from the start. This does NOT apply to the dogs themselves. I like dogs, we used to own a dog. The dogs themselves are not the problem - it's their owners, or some of them. I know there are responsible dog owners out there, I used to be one of them.
As you may have guessed, this is about the dirt left behind by dogs, dog poo and those irresponsible owners who do not clean it up, as they are required by law. We live in a town. People walk on pavements, have small children and push prams on pavements (or footways) and they don't need to have to look out for dog dirt as well. Out in the countryside may be different but in a town dog owners should clean up after their dogs.
Right at the Gate
Someone's dog left a parcel right at my gate yesterday and I trod in it because i was concentrating on opening and closing the gate. It was left right beside the gate, in the middle of the pathway. There is no way that owner could think that that was acceptable - to allow their dog to dirty right at the entrance to someone's garden?
Dog Poo Fairy
As some of our local rubbish disposal bins have written on them - "There is no such person as the Dog Poo Fairy! Clean up after your dog!"
