EEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWW....that is just so wrong!!!!
Okay, before I write my letter, please let me preface it by saying I KNOW that not all pet owners are this irresponsible and lazy. I am NOT trying to offend any pet owners, I just happened to have a bad experience this past weekend and am venting....
Dear Mr. Dog Owner,
This weekend while we were camping at the Ga. Veteran's State Park (might I say a beautifully appointed campground), I noticed that you were taking your beautiful jack russell terrier for a walk. And I was so impressed. You actually had this beautiful specimen on a leash, just like the campground rules state that you must.
Now, I love doggies. Most of them are precious and make me want them for myself. But, I feel it's necessary to remind you of a couple of issues.
#1. The park rules clearly state (just under where it says they must be on a leash) that you are responsible for picking up and disposing of their waste. Yep, you need to pick up their doodoo. I know that they even make special little baggies for this. And if that is too expensive, we all shop at Wally world and save the plastic bags.
#2. It's just common courtesy not to leave their waste around where unsuspecting people will step and slip in it. (My knees are just fine, thanks for asking. The rocks only dug 1/4 inch into my skin).
#3. The hygeine issue of children digging in gravel and getting dog doodoo on their hands is self-explanatory. (EEEEEEEWWWWWW).
I'm a live and let die kind of gal. I think that pets are something that everyone should have, but with them comes responsibilities whether you like it or not. I bet it would pi-- you off to no end if you stepped in waste that my pet left, huh?
Then, when we went to the Cracker Barrel for breakfast, there was this man letting his dog poop on the grassy area of the parking lot and then he just walked off like he didn't see it happening. H E L L O!!! Where is your courtesy????
Okay, I feel much better now. Thanks for listening to my ranting about dog doodoo.
Have a nice day.
