Pick up after your dog

in

To The Editor:
On Saturday morning, August 25 I dropped my daughter off at Margaretville Central School.  The incoming freshman class decided to paint the snack shack.  Such good kids!  Anyway, an older gentleman pulls into the parking lot and he and his dog get out.  He proceeds to walk his dog all over the baseball fields.  He does not clean up after his pet.  Are you kidding me? 

I am a pet owner myself and know that owning a pet is a responsibility.   

I am very surprised that certain people find nothing wrong with this practice.  I think everyone should remember, in this day and age with all the technology we have available. I hope you will be ready to defend yourself.  Almost everyone over the age of 10 has video capability on their cell phone.  He was lucky most 10 year olds remember to charge their stuff. I on the other hand, held my dead cell phone in my hand this morning.

Come on people!  This is gross!  If you feel the absolute need to walk your dogs where our kids play, please have the decency to pick up after them.  If not, please be ready to defend your actions to the school and town.  Someone will get you on video.  So stop being disgusting.  The school should be able to charge you for clean up.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping to provide a clean environment for our children to play in.
