THANKS: to municipal crews for cleaning off the city sidewalks. Such a pleasure for pedestrians to be rid of the gravel and accumulated winter debris (including many dog messes...)

SPANKS: To thoughtless dog owners who STILL refuse to pick up after their dirty darling Fifi’s and brutish, brown, piled Rovers. Please have some consideration for your fellow citizens, particularly in the downtown core. Inexcusable! I am partially sighted and have only narrowly avoided soiling my footwear several times - My white cane unfortunately has not.

SPANKS; To people who bring their five big dogs on a private beach.
