Open Letter to Dog Walkers

Photobucket

Dear people who let your dogs crap in the meadow & don't clean it up,

First let me say with the utmost sincerity, you suck. The beautiful open area with trees and grass was not designed to be your dogs litter box. Kids play ball there. People sit & read there. I assure you none of them want to have to maneuver around your dogs droppings just because you are to lazy to pick it up.

Since I sit around my house being crazy all day, do not be surprised if I show up on your doorstep with a bag of your dogs crap. It's always best to return things to their rightful owner.


P.S. - People who let their 3 year olds ride ATV's in the meadow without supervision, you're next!

you could do what Sissy's neighbor did, and flag each little pile.

That is one of my big pet peeves - people that let their stupid dogs crap everywhere and just leave it. SO inconsiderate. I don't let my kid crap on the ground wherever and just leave it for y ou to step in, do I? No, I don't. But I might be persuaded to if you don't clean up after your stupid dog.

I pick up after animals... er, my kids, all day long. The last thing I'd want to do is pick up after someone else's. I like the flagging idea lol. "This poop pile belong to...."

Ack! 3y/o kids unsupervised on ATVs? Horrible. Am I the only one who used to refer to ATVs as ATCs? We had 4 of these when I was younger and we called them ATCs. Man I'm old.

I just ran across your blog and saw the Michigan section! I live in Michigan (have my whole life) and my boyfriend is actually from Traverse City..we visit there often as his entire family is still there (we are in Ann Arbor but YEARN for a move North). Also...THREE years old on an ATV?? Crazy!

Seriously! I'm with you...especially because my boys like to run around barefoot!

After the ATV's could we take on people who pee on public toilets seats and people who walk their clearly uncontrollable dogs off leash when it is clearly stated that they should be leashed?

People in my apartment building have been letting their small dogs do their business right off our porch without cleaning it up. It's kinda a backside of a building, but it's OUR backside!

one of the few reasons I have a cat....an indoor cat.....with his box in the basement.

But......when I was a young girl....long long ago.....there was a woman who lived 2 blocks from my house. She would walk her dog every morning and evening down to our street and let him poop on our yard and other neighbor's yards and just leave it there. We all hated her....but no one ever said anything. But what really grates on my nerves are the mother's (and dad's who leave their child's nasty dirty diaper in parking lots and parks. These people are the lowest.

tell em! TELL EM!! and can you put the people who leave their garage sale signs up forever something similar please? thanks.

Sweet Mama Jones said...

Yeah! So there! I totally feel ya - I hate that at our beach the little dog-poo-baggie-dispensers are full at all times while fresh bombs are plopped all about. I want to punch them. The dog owners, not the fresh bombs.
SITS rawks!

LOL! Too funny! I moved from PA 2 years ago after I finished work on my Ph.D and I can report they are poop nazis in PA, they will fine you $500 or more if you do not pick up your doggy droppings there...so I have bags with me whenever I take mine out, no Sassy poo anywhere at all :) (I am a new SITS gal)

Hi. New to your site form SITS. I completely agree on the dog poop issue. I found random in my front yard and man it sure does get the blood boiling.
