That's sooooo disrespectful. Poor Aunt Milly's area was soiled. The owner's should be fined. Where's Bender? He should be watching for this because the city employees are the cleaners up of the messes.

People need to be more responsible for their dogs. I'v been complaining about my neighbor for years, he lets his dog crap all over the sidewalk on Francis St, and also throws dog crap over the embankment going down furnace st. What's the sense of having a city ordinance if you can't even get the dog officer to return phone calls. You should see all the dog crap that is behind Red Sauce, on Ashland st. On a hot day you can smell the stench of dog crap.

oh I totally believe you........I live in the college area and some of the college kids have dogs living with them. I have dogs of my own and I clean up after them all the time. What really burns me is they walk their dogs and let them do their duty anywhere.......I get very upset when there is crap in my yard that I have to clean up from others' dogs. When I walk my dog I always carry a bag with me and dispose of it at home........its just common sense.

up until recently I often walked to big y along sperry ave. for a long time it has been a disgusting site along the park side of the street (river side) because so many people think that it is a great place to walk their dogs, many of them large dogs, so they can relieve themselves there and the owner just walks away. I have 2 small dogs and when I walk them I too take an old shopping bag to pick up anything they leave behind so I can dispose of it properly. as for walking my dog in places where other dogs have left their messes, no way. diseases spread from those dogs to mine would not make me happy.
as for the cemetery, I think it is a great place for walking for exercise, human and canine, but show some respect. walk your dogs in the road and pick up after them. I sure don't appreciate finding feces on the graves of my parents. so disrespectful!!!!!

Please don't shoot the dogs. They are just doing what comes naturally and they have no malice or a lazy bone in thier body.

Their owners, on the other hand...

Too many dog owners think they have the right to walk their dogs or let them run where ever and when ever they want. Bullshit! No pun intended. Dog walkers are disrespectful to the rest of us who don't care to step around, over or in dog shit. It might be on the sidewalk, in the street, on a ball field, the river bank, walking track. Doesn't matter. As long as nobody's looking people just let it lay where Fido drops it.

dog owners are plain ignorant of the facts. most of them will say the crap is good for plants, that in which is totally false, and the piss isnt very far behind. its not manure like as they wish. not only is it disgusting to step it, but its loaded with all kinds of bacteria and disease. thats why they walk their dog, so they wont crap all over their lawn. sure, its ok to leave brown spots in your nice green lawn, but sure as hell wouldnt want theirs to look like that. of course there are always them gross people that let them crap right in their homes, but thats beside the point.

best thing anyone can do is to take pictures of the dog crapping(or pissing) on your property, or city property for that matter. that is why the dog officer can never be totally sure they got the culprit. show the dog officer your pictures and there will be no doubt. make sure to get the owner in the picture of course, thus showing they were not in control of their animal. there was this one guy that i would catch every so often him letting his dog dig my plants and crap and/or piss all over them. i went out there and made sure to tell him my feelings. he shrugged it off as if no care in the world. i would have told him i would knock hit teeth out if he let it happen again, but that wouldnt look so nice in the eyes of the law. so i proceeded to take pictures and confronted him once again. he sure did look a little more concerned at that point. so much so, he dont even walk his dog up my street any longer. i guess he found another path of terror to take. in the case i ever caught him again, i would certainly bring him to court, whether that be destruction of property or trespassing a private area. whatever the case be, he sure dont find me so pleasant now. i would think that the knocking his teeth out would have been way more effective, but the passive method seemed to work just fine.

think of how much money is spent on the flowers people bought for their loves ones. even if money is not the issue, rather, the disgracing of someones burial location. its disgusting to think they have no care or respect for the ones below. if they would follow their own words such as "bears shit in the woods all the time", then that is where they should walk their dog.

they are supposed to be in control of their animal at all times.

Lets hear it for the fat broad in the wheel chair who lets her mutt do his thing anywhere and everywhere in the Ashland St. area. At last Big Y has told this clown the mutt isn't allowed in the store.As for big Y...I could start a blog post on the people I see in there and the people who stink of tobacco so much I want to puke when near them.Does Big Y offer a discount to stupid broads covered with stupid tattoos?
