LETTERS: Cleaning up dog’s mess is just plain considerate

Proud Langford resident upset at disrespectful behaviour from some dog owners

Langford, in my opinion, is the best place to live in Victoria. Lots of families, many new facilities and places to eat like my favourite, Bin 4.

One thing that I’m not happy about is this morning I found dog poop on my front lawn. Owners, why don’t you pick up after your dog? After all, I’m trying to sell my house this year. I want to make it look presentable.

Be a responsible dog owner, put on a latex glove and pick up the poop using a plastic bag. I do not have a dog, but I have common sense.

Ask yourself. Would you discard your baby’s diaper on someone else’s lawn or place it in the garbage? It really only takes a few seconds to pick up your dog poop with the proper supplies. Is this too much to ask for?

Please, next time be considerate for other people’s properties and pick up after your dog, whoever you are.

Kathy Kegalj, Langford
