There's that two year old running through my yard again, throwing his dirty diaper on my grass. Where are his parents?
Sound crazy? Yes, but that kind of thing is happening across Bridgetown. Before you call DCS, let me explain.
Dog lovers will tell you their pooches are members of the family. So why aren't people treating them like one? You wouldn't let you 2 year old son go running in other people's yards and throw his dirty diapers in the front lawn. So why are people letting their dogs run wild and poop all over the place?
The Bridgetown regulations state that dogs are supposed to be on leashes when they are off your property. Common courtesy states you should scoop the poop when you are walking them off your property. We have a lot of walkers in the community, and no one wants to step in your dog's poop. And if you love your dog, you won't let him run free. It's just not safe. I nearly hit a dog running across the street one night on my way home from work.
So please, keep your dog on a leash and don't leave dirty droppings behind. It's a matter of safety, courtesy and community.
