I swear our local dogs can read. Since the posting of my notice not a single blob anywhere. I have surprisingly been asked for copies of the poster for display in other areas of our ward. I better start making a modest charge for this service. It got me thinking though how difficult it is for the wardens to actually catch the perpetrators in the act. It took a long time and some heated debate before the council got this far so I shudder to think what the following suggestion will do. If the emphasis was changed so that the dog walker had to prove they were carrying facilities to clean up after their pet and the warden had the power to request to see this evidence then if no evidence was available the fine was administered. We would see a completely different picture. So come on councillors let’s get the bye law changed and really get our borough cleaned up. Paws here from telling the tail (if you will pardon the pun). This blog doesn’t get any better. Latest on the perpetrator it is a Golden Lab.
I wonder which party will have this suggestion in their manifesto first. This could go national. It’s a break though from the rest of the crap in the news.
