LETTER: Bring a bag when walking your dog

I wish to request that all dog owners not use Hoon Park or any front yards including the sidewalk along Holland Avenue for their dogs' personal bathrooms.

Dog feces are toxic.

Please do not make the excuse that you did not know your dog was going to defecate. Really, what do you think your dog is going to do when taken for a walk?

Show some common courtesy and bring a bag when walking your dog so you can pick up your dog's feces and take it with you to dispose of in a public garbage can. Please do not leave the feces in a bag on our front yards or in Hoon Park.

Thank you for respecting our neighbourhood – it is greatly appreciated.
