Work together and dispose of doggie doo

Re: ‘Doggie doo remains a pet peeve’ (Letters, PQB News, Feb. 26)

I am a resident of Parksville, living in the same area as Cheryl Baker, around Stanford, Mills and McVickers streets, and I am here to concur that doggie-doo deposits remain alive and well.

For years I have watched dog owners allow their dogs to urinate and poop on the boulevards, resulting in unsightly brown patches on the grass, and I too have picked up bags which irresponsible owners left along the street. I have had to call the city regarding the dog poop on The Walkway, which should be a beautiful stroll for all citizens.

It certainly does cast aspersions on all pet owners, but 23 bags?

Come on… and when you say something to the irresponsible owners about this, or letting their pets run off leash, they are rude and defensive.

We all have to live in this community together – let’s co-operate.
