LETTER: Picking up dog poop due to irresponsibility

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter after visiting the dog park this morning. As a dog owner, I walked through the large park and was greatly disappointed to see so many dog droppings left behind.

There was another woman there with her dog, and together we picked up no less than 20 sets of poop. This is totally unacceptable.

It may be frozen now, but what a mess this will be in the spring and summer. If you think  the town is responsible for cleaning up after our pets, you are mistaken. We are all responsible  for keeping our park clean.

We are so very fortunate to have this wonderful place to bring our dogs, so please pick up after your dog. And if you see something that may not be yours, grab a bag and do the right thing.

It will help to make our special place clean and healthy for all.
