Maybe we should just station LEO's at each park entrance, require an ID and pay a fee before we take a walk in the park.

Or how about a "dog poopie hotline"? Then you could whine to them.
Let's go one better and close down all the parks to both animals and people. Then there'd be no whining right? And we could use all of that freed up funding for library services. Cuz dogs don't poop in libraries.

The alternative is to spend more money and clean the parks on a daily basis for dog poop. I would rather just ticket and ban the violators rather than spend more tax money to clean up their sh*t.

What about squirrel or rabbit poop? When you are outdoors in nature you have to remember---Poop happens. I think that maybe there should be special paths for dogs walkers to walk with their dogs. That should do it. If you walk on those trails be prepared to step in poop. The last thing we need are more laws or restricted places.

I just like seeing the word "poop" so many times in a public forum! Poop poopidy poop!

"... she pretty much ONLY poops in the 3-4 inch tall ground cover. Out of site and out of the way." Um, there are probably landscape workers who don't care too much for your dog's secret poop.

I have lived in a few apt complexes before buying my home, and I have always scooped my dog's poop. I hated it when I saw piles on the ground RIGHT NEXT to the poop bag dispenser/trash can. I do wonder why the apartment complex didn't hire professional poop scoopers though, since they charged me $10 extra "pet rent" per month.

Poop Poopidy Poop!

They must not be doing much landscaping there if the grass is 3 to 4" tall.

No kidding. Why would they need an extra $10/mo just because I have dogs? It's not like they're doing any extra work because of it. And then there's the nonrefundable dog deposit. If I leave the place and there's no sign there was ever a dog there, why shouldn't I get my money back? They screw people out of their money any way they can.

And you don't think it's not going to cost tax money to employ those people to ticket the violators? I doubt they would use police officers as they have better things to do then track down people that don't pick up dog sh*t.
