Reader Mail: “Punter Poop”

8/27/2009:

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!”

most everyone I see in the run picks the poop up immediately. I even saw one guy w a flash light at night. Hopefully folks either curb their dogs or train them to wait until they arrive at the run.

I did see one council person’s x-large dog take a massive dump in the middle of a busy sidewalk – not nice!

Oh, that was a perfect picture moment! I am assuming s/he picked up right?
