I love dogs, I own dogs, and despite the irritation of schlepping back up the beach with a dog poo bag, I do it, because it is just what we should do, the norm.
Nearly trod in some dog poo by Crooklets car park earlier, then headed off with a friend for a walk along the canal. Towards the weir end, one of a lady’s two beautifully clipped spaniels, black and white, stopped for a poo. At first, she continued walking, oblivious, but then she saw the dog and walked back, we presumed to pick up the poo. By now some distance away, we watched her watch her dog finish, whence she then walked off. So, a nicely dressed woman with some lovely dogs just didn’t bother even trying to clean up. We were appalled; sadly, she didn’t seem to be. It’s really very easy, isn’t it? If you have a dog, take some poo bags when you go out and clean up the mess!
