Dog owners, clean up after your pets

Editor: I walk three dogs most mornings and I pick up after them. It is the epitome of selfishness to leave your dog’s mess for someone else to clean up.

If you don’t want to clean it up, why do you suppose someone else does? I have seen signs from frustrated property owners asking people not to leave dog excrement on their lawns, and then I see piles left there.

I recently walked my dogs and saw dog feces on the grounds of Parkside Elementary School. Think of the children who attend the school.
