Pick up after your pooch 

LETTER

“I don’t think twice about picking up my dog’s poop, but if another dog’s poop is next to it, I think, ‘Eww, dog poop’!” — Jonah Goldberg

Dear loving dog owners using Wainui Beach, the reserves and the footpaths: Please pick up after your pooch. Almost daily I (and schoolchildren) have to avoid stinky land mines while walking in the neighbourhood.
It is pretty gross really. So c’mon, don’t be lazy!

Maybe these (un) responsible dog owners would be less likely to be lazy with the incentive of a $500 fine from the GDC Animal Control for deserting their dogs defecation!!! Set up some surveillance, then take your proof of 'poo possession' to council. Owners like that won't stop doing it just because they are asked. I always take a 'doggy bag' when walking my dog.
