LETTER: Shocked by some dog owners

It is not right to leave your dog's business on other people's property.

When I take my dog for a walk, and she does her business, I pick it up.  Yet, other dog owners out there think it is okay to leave their dog’s business all over the side walk and on other people’s grass.  I have even seen people throw their “poop” bags in the street.  I am totally disgusted at the way people treat other people.

They may not have dogs and it is not right to leave your dog’s business on other people’s property. I have doggie detail that picks up my dog’s poop bucket once a week.  Why do I have to pick up other people’s dogs poop that is on my side walk or front yard?  I

am shocked and disgusted at the other dog owners out there.  Pick up your dog’s business and make us dog owners proud to walk our dogs and not deface the sidewalks where kids walk.
