[quote comment=”110006″]there are far too many pet owners in town, specifically dog owners, who do not perform the obligations of the role and clean up after their pet. i’ve never seen anything remotely like it in any other town. these selfish swine are one of the lowest forms of life on the planet.
there is NEVER (repeat: never) an excuse for not picking up after your dog. no, “i was in a rush.” “i’m busy.” blah, blah, blah. when you get a pet, you have to check the sense of self-importance at the door. so for those people, i hope it pours on the day of the parade. for the normal people, enjoy.[/quote]
Ever been to Paris? I love that city, but the dog droppings are out of control!

Re 13: Sorry, “submit” kicked in too soon….

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to deflect my dogs from piles of human puke, from early Fri. a.m. through early Mon. a.m.

So perhaps MF’s concern might be better targeted to a larger swathe of irresponsible human beings, some, but not all of them with dogs?

Re 11: Fried… Totally agree re your response to MF.
What a broad-brush allegation, MF! Yes, some dog owners give the rest of us who are responsible a bad rep.

Deliberately stirring the pot, taking MF’s parallel sweeping generalizations further: could apply to other living beings here….

How about: too many late-adolescents in this town, who drunkenly puke or urinate on the street, w/out cleaning up after themselves?

Can’t tell you how ma

It was crazy, meat cheese & bread strewn all over the sidewalk. I find that when I leave the house without the dog I still have bags on me, and pick up these… Read more »
