Bratwurst-sized dog poops must be picked up

I feel like many to be blessed with the beautiful boardwalk in Parksville. I walk it 5-7 times a week, the city keeps this area stunning for locals and tourists, for that we thank you.

To all the people who walk their dogs there and “pick up” after them, we thank you as well.

My concern is how many “piles” I see just left right on the boardwalk (I counted four the other day alone).

The city even supplies the bags, so why? This is not little doggie doo these are bratwurst size. These are not left by horses that “walk and go” these have to be from bigger dogs that need to stop and take their “moment.”

The owners also need to stop while their dogs are taking care of business, so they absolutely not only know this happens, they choose to just leave it and walk away.

Shameful to say the least, not only is this a disrespect to all who use the boardwalk, it is also dangerous to seniors who can slip and fall to a health hazard to all.

Please clean up after your dog.
