[ARCHIVED] Please Pick Up After Your Pooch This Winter

There are some presents nobody wants to receive. Learn the facts about dog poop here…

Let's agree that poop happens when you own a dog. Your pooch does his or her daily business and the dog feces must be picked up. Resist the temptation during winter to let the snow cover the deed, it is still there and can cause harm. In addition, it is annoying to neighbors who step in the doggy present, and an expensive cleanup process in the spring for the City Parks Department. Dog feces contain substances that can harm our family when rain or snowmelt carries it into the nearest stormdrain and to the neighborhood pond. It can even be infiltrated into the ground to our drinking water sources. Algal bloom causing phosphorus, E.coli bacteria, ringworm, and other parasites are some unwelcome surprises that can be found in Fido’s little presents. Keep the neighborhood and water resources clean - pick up after your dog.
