Re: The dog days are over, News, June 15, 2011.
I want to send out a warm “thank you” for all the irresponsible dog owners who are the reason us responsible dog owners who have lost the privilege of having off-leash fields. All it takes it a two second bend, a plastic bag and a bit of morals and sense of responsibility.
I am a professional dog walker and pet sitter, and I enjoy being able to take my dogs out to parks so they can get a good run in for the day.
Now that these options are being taken away, I am really disappointed.
Do you allow your children to make messes and not be responsible for picking up after them? There are often garbage bins on the premises, and garbage bags. If there’s no bags, then as a dog owner you should have pockets full.
I myself am getting tired of stepping in dog poop on the beaches, and having to jump over the land mines. If it’s such an issue for you to pick up the poop then bury it.
Thanks again for stripping those of us who are responsible the freedom for fun and play.
