That goes for all you dog walkers in Herkimer.
Main St. is not a Freaking bathroom for your dogs.

It's not a big deal. If you walk your dog, bring a plastic bag. How hard is that?

Unfortunately it takes far more than a plastic bag to clean up that particular mess.

the dog poop problem in herkimer is out of control. with temperaturs near 60 now the dogs are out en masse.

tried to enjoy a stroll on main albany and prospect streets on a nice day but had to dodge one land mine after another -- STEAMING STINKING PILES OF DOG POOP littering every street!

First off; I love dogs and have had them most of my 60 years. I've never seen such idiot pet owners as there are now. They have to take their pets EVERYWHERE and if the dump, oh well... that's just so cute. BS - IT'S CRAP - CLEAN IT UP IDIOTS! YOU may love your pet and want it around you all the time BUT most OTHER people DON'T and they think you're an IDIOT for taking it EVERYWHERE!

I like my dog's company, and he likes mine, so he goes "everywhere " with me. It's one reason I have a dog. He's better company than a lot of humans are. He and I don't give a rat's arse that you think it's idiotic. I don't let him approach people unless they show an interest in him. He's always leashed when he's with me, and he's a perfect gentleman. I have no problem with cleaning up after him.

To put things in perspective, however, I will say that leash laws and pooper scooper laws are a relatively new phenomenon. Some of us can remember a time when dogs roamed free and nobody was expected to clean up after them. People just watched where they stepped. Mud, horse manure and dogs were just part of their lives. I don't advocate a return to those days, but I DO think people have gotten a little too prissy. The world will never be "sanitized for your protection ". Yes, there are a lot of lazy slobs who own dogs, but taking your dog "everywhere " isn't a crime. It's certainly not idiotic.(BTW, he doesn't accompany me to dental appointments or the movies, so "everywhere " is a bit of a stretch.)

There are lots of responsible dog owners. I'm one of them.

Maybe if Mayor Ainsworth stepped in a big steaming, stinking pile of dog poop something would get done!

Yes, this is definitely a HUGE problem in Herkimer. Why have a dog if you can't take care of it, and clean up after it?

Many of the people that let their dog crap all over are from Main Street. Maybe they don't care because they don't own any land. If they actually had a yard and other dogs kept crapping in it, I 'm sure they would get the picture. Is it really that hard to pick up after your dog? What a bunch of disgusting people in this town! Getting rid of these gross people would be a huge step towards beautifying and revitalizing Main St and the downtown area in general.

I just love this dog. He is so responsible, maybe the Amish can learn how to clean up after their horses from him.

True. Horse sh1t on the street is way grosser. Where is the law against that. The dog crap law should be enforced and amended to encompass all animals.
