From one dog owner to others: please pick up after your pets

We all need to be responsible to the animals we love and think of as part of our lives and family, and this includes cleaning up after them.

This is a gentle request for all dog owners to please remember to pick up after your dog when out for a walk or in a dog park.

Recently my dog Koda and I were at the South Surrey Morgan Crossing shops and we stopped at the dog park and I was saddened to see that a lot of previous visitors to the park didn’t clean up the mess their pet left behind.

We all need to be responsible to the animals we love and think of as part of our lives and family, and this includes cleaning up after them.

The dog park provides doggy-doo bags at the gate, so even if you forget to bring a bag along, they are there when needed.

It would be highly appreciated if everyone cleaned up after their own pet. Thank you to all and hope you have a great holiday season.


Sandra Steffan and Koda
