Dogs off school ovals

By johnboy 5 February 2007 63

John Hargreaves is quick off the mark in addressing one of the gravest issues confronting the Canberra community at this time.

“Rangers from Domestic Animal Services will be conducting random patrols of school grounds throughout Canberra over the coming weeks. In the first instance, owners with dogs on school property will be warned; any subsequent offence will result in fines being issued”

Here in the RiotACT bunker we’re pleased that this menace to society is being promptly dealt with. We’re comfortable in the knowledge that rangers have nothing better to do.

What’s Your opinion?

I once had a pair of new shoes with tank-like tread and one evening trod in dog poo and had to spend a not insignificant part of my evening trying to clean it up.

And until the shoes reached their use-by date I imagined they still stunk, which made me lose concentration at meetings, made me uncomfortable on the bus, in the Lift etc.

Quite simply, some thoughtless dog-owner made me a nervous wreck!

The main selfish, arrogant, personality type in our society can be attributed to:

(1)parents (with human dogs); (2)dog-owners;and(3) 4WD owners.

In saying this I realise I have unintentionally offended most of the free-speech lovers on this site!

Its not hard to be a considerate human being. In the immortal words of John Howard: “do unto others [shoes]…”.

“And, vg, you obviously have no kids, nor even seen a kid playing, if you think it’s ok to leave dog shit around because they should avoid stepping on it in the first place. Little kids don’t have PhDs, mmkay?”

Yes I do have kids, we were all playing with our 2 dogs this arvo.

And to quote LG:

“Where did VG or I suggest it was ok to leave dog shit lying around?????????? Or take your dog off it’s lead?”

Precisely. Grow up

Can you take a dog off lead to Stromlo Park and run along Deeks Drive? (Does it still exist?).
