Fed up with dog mess stories

Seriously, I am absolutely fed up now with people writing in about dog muck.

If you see someone leave their dogs mess behind, why not just go and say something to them? I bet lots of the dog muck on pavements belong to visitors who don’t read the Whitby Gazette often, so surely saying something to their face is better? Maybe you’re better off writing to the council where something might get done about it instead of wittering on to the local paper.

In all my life I cant say I’ve ever complained about the amount of dog muck, ever stepped in any, or, more to the point, even noticed it on the ground. And for your information, I’m a hamster owner (and yes, I clean up after him), not a dog owner.
