Going tiptoe through the dog doo

In response to “A half century of happy trails,” I’d like to know what part of St. Albert you live in. I live in Pineview and can tell you that there is no way you can walk in this neighbourhood or its parks without tip-toeing through the doggie doo. This winter I’ve had to pick up several piles on the sidewalk in front of my house.

Then there is this “should-be” beautiful park behind my house that doubles as an off-leash park and dumping ground for several of my neighbours’ dogs. The area behind my house is nice and secluded, so people with multiple dogs off-leash go there to let their dogs do their business and slink away without picking anything up, even though there are several garbage cans right there for their use. I have the “pleasure” of watching this bad behaviour on a daily basis outside my kitchen window (I hope the offenders read this and are now on notice that they are not invisible).

I’m happy that Ms. Engler has never had any issues like this, but I believe you must live/walk in an area that is much different than most of St. Albert.
