A beautiful walk, except ...

January 25, 2013 

I love my walks along Snyder Avenue, between Prescott and Dale, in the early mornings, greeting wonderful, polite and considerate people who are waving, smiling, enjoying another beautiful morning together. Then I'll come across the "remains" of the very rude, uncaring and inconsiderate people of the morning— pet lovers. Yep, they dearly love their dogs; knit them sweaters, take them to groomers, shopping, etc. But the one thing they will not do is pick up their dog's poop!

They don't seem to care that our children who walk along Snyder to school and/or catch a bus, have to walk around the poop their dog left on the sidewalk! Then there are the clever pet owners who have their beloved pets poop on school property or grassy areas!

I know it's not pleasant to pick up newly dumped poop, but it is your responsibility. On behalf of the community, I thank you for picking "it" up in the future!

Sincerely, a dog lover.
