Perils of dog doo in the grass
In response to the Oct. 9 letter from a long-time dog owner (“Dogs and parks”), because I have the most unusual problem of having feet that seek out dog doo, it is a relief when I see a sign in a grassy area that forbids dogs, as is the case with the Plaza. I feel at ease straying off the path to lay down in the grass without fear that there will be a pile somewhere on my path.
I am very fond of dogs and applaud those owners who clean up after their pets; it is the few who spoil it for us all. Surely the home gardens, the streets and other unposted areas should be sufficient space for pet lovers to exercise their dogs. Protecting the eight acres of the Plaza is something the city should continue to do by vigorously enforcing the law that is in place.
