Reader Mail: “Punter Poop”
New downtown Hoboken resident Sherry immediately noticed that our fair city has many inconsiderate dog owners – and has today’s rant about them!
Large or small, pick up the poop!
“I recently moved to Hoboken – mainly because I have a large dog. I walk out the door of my apartment at least once a week to find some little dog’s poop near the door. Do people with little dogs think they don’t have to clean up their dog’s poop?? Maybe I should start leaving my dogs “bombs” in the middle of sidewalks too? In all seriousness, I often see people walking their little dogs without carrying bags for cleanup or I see them walk away from their dog’s mess. This is such obnoxious behavior. Pick up your “punter’s” poop! (Punter: A dog so little you can punt it.)
In continuation of my punter rant, why do people with little dogs think it’s OK to leave their dogs indoors with wee-pads instead of getting off their lazy arses and um, well, walk them! I can’t tell you how many apartments I looked at when renting an apartment where there was the familiar wee-pad. Dogs aren’t accessories.
I realize I am generalizing and that are some responsible small dog owners out there who pick up after their dogs and actually walk them rather than carry them around in cute bags….maybe.
I know some of you might say that people with large dogs leave messes too. I have yet to see this happen, however I don’t discount the possibility.
Large or small, pick up the poop!”
