It is hard to believe that in this day and age we are still hearing about dog mess being left on the pavements and foot paths.
Surely EVERYONE knows by now that apart from being unpleasant, this represents a genuine health hazard to children and to other animals. It can cause diseases like ringworm in children and can lead to cows aborting their calves if ingested.
PLEASE ALWAYS CARRRY A POO BAG (OR TWO) AND ALWAYS PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG.
– and having bagged your poo, put it into ANY bin or take it home; do not leave it hanging around!
– and please do not let dogs roam unattended.
There are always times when you get ‘caught out’, it must have happened to most of us at one time or another – but please do not just walk away – ask another dog walker if they have a spare bag, or at the very least, if you really have no alternative, use a stick to flick it into the gutter or DEEP into the hedgerow.
Do not be the only one left in the village who is causing a nuisance!
