Dog owners need to be more responsible

I agree that discarding food wrapping, cigarette packs etc is disgusting, but at least they don’t get tracked home on your hiking boot!

Dear Sir:

Would Ms. Marianne Weston be so kind as to give out her home address? (“Just don’t step in it,” letter to the editor, April 18, 2012.)

That way, anybody  “caught short”, while out garage sale-ing could use her lawn, or garden for relief.

I’m sure she would welcome the free fertilizer, and it would save a lot of folk a detour downtown.

I have never owned a dog, but I have knelt in dog-doo in my own yard.

I also missed six weeks work, and still have a sore ankle, thanks to an off-leash dog vs. motorcycle accident ten years ago.

Unless your dog is seeing-eye, or you ned it for another medical necessity, it is a luxury, and your responsibility for maintenance, and clean up.
