The large pile of dog poo left on the verge outside my house doesn't add a great deal to the village aesthetics.
So called dog lovers, don't you just love them, in this case not.

I have merged the previous two posts in this thread, numbers 299 and 300, from the Brookmans Park not as 'pretty' as it might be thread to prevent that discussion going off topic and focusing on dog mess, which is already covered in this thread.

I must say while walking round Gobians yesterday I'm disgusted with the amount of dogs mess all over the place! The simple rule of thumb would be if you don't like to pick dogs mess up don't get a dog!

I walked there this morning with my 2 children and 2 dogs, one child trod in dog mess and the ball ended up in a pile, without realising they started to play catch resulting in hands covered in dog poo. That cut short our trip to goblins....Disgusting. The whole field was mowed 2 days ago, and the field is littered in it already. I am a dog owner and a parent Gobions should be enjoyed by both.

Just had to clear up a load of dog mess from our garden path at the front. I don't think we have strays in Brookmans Park, so I am guessing the dog was on a lead at the time and the owner was aware what was happening.

Walked down Moffats Lane this morning and the odd numbered side is dreadful - must have had to avoid about eight instances of dog mess.  Yuck.

You beat me to it Angel - I was going to post on here too. Every other time I've walked down Moffats this week there have been another few additions to the canine faecal landscape. Not pleasant when trying to keep your 8 year old plus her scooter out of it all. The pavement's barely wide enough as it is.

Without putting too fine a point on it I would venture that the evidence does look like it's come from a single dog so maybe the culprit has only just started walking up Moffats?

I'll be on the lookout next week for any suspicious canine activity...

Perhaps a simple test akin to Cinderella's slipper might be a suitable way of establishing the culprits identity?........

Someone had let their dog "add to the variety of the landscape" all over the pavement toward the village end of moffats this morning. Vile.

Yes, I noticed a few additions to the Moffats landscape too this morning - the Cinderella slipper test suggested above probably isn't necessary as I'm pretty certain it's the same canine culprit as last week. The rain has now washed last week's offerings away down the hill which I'm not sure is a good or a bad thing. Less of it but harder to spot & therefore easier to step in...

Has anyone else noticed how many people have started collecting dog poo in plastic bags and then dumping the bags on the pavements?
