Letter to the Editor - Take responsibility for dogs

Dear Editor:

This letter is for the ignorant, disrespectful dog owner who walks his/her unleashed dog and lets it do it’s business on my lawn. The same person who had the time to take a picture of my sign regarding the above problem and send it to the City Bylaw Dept. saying he/she was offended by it but didn’t have the time to pick up his/her dog’s mess. Do you not think I was offended having to pick up your dog’s mess or leave it and get it in my lawnmower bag?

As a result the dog catcher came to my door to inform me of the complaint and to remove the sign then had the audacity to suggest as an alternative I could put up a fence (at my expense of course). Well it will be a fine and frosty Friday and a snowball won’t have a chance where it’s going before I do that. Just another case of the law protecting the guilty instead of the innocent!

So guilty, ignorant dog owner, seeing as how the dog catcher doesn’t have time to patrol all of Yorkton for that particular job (in his words) be advised that I will be extra watchful and not if but when I catch you and your dog you’ll pay the fine for an unleashed dog and for not picking up his mess.

Remaining vigilant,
Phyllis Herman, Yorkton, SK
