To be fair, cleaning up after your own dog is not "doing a good deed". You should either be taking said deposit home, or using a council supplied bin for it. The shopkeeper may have over-reacted, but putting your dog crap into a shop is not acceptable.
Well, by saying "I could have easily just left it on the ground" does rather imply that that you want a pat on the back for putting in a bin.
The bin you chose was on private property. She may have overreacted, but I think you have as well. Save grief in the future and just use a public bin?
There are no horses in this part of cabra to sit on
I seriously cannot believe that you think its ok to bring your dog's crap inside somebody's workplace and leave it there. Tightly wrapped or not, it isnt sealed and is very far from hygienic. Are you honestly saying that if somebody arrived at your house with a bag of crap and asked did you mind if they put it in your inside bin that you would be perfectly fine with that?
I'm assuming that you arent trolling here but would you cop on...you do owe that person an apology, whatever you might think...
There might be today, the fair is on in Smithfield, Dogs might be the least of your worries.
its the same all over the country so sick of it , lots of signs up but who`s gonna stop it from happening and who enforces the fine??? Mr Nobody
I've only noticed that it's started to get worse in the past two months or so. Coming up New Cabra road or going down Quarry Road or Annamoe and there's dog crap on the path every couple of feet. It's not even against a wall or anything, right bang in the middle and smeared all over the path.
When I'm out with my own dog-with a couple of plastic bags stuck in my pocket- I've seen others let their dogs do their business all over the path. When I offer them the lend of a plastic bag they either ignore me or tell me to f off.
I wish I could catch the person who lets his dog **** right in the mddle of my gate though
Anyone suspect this problem is worse since the plastic bag tax took millions of free plastic bags out of circulation?
No, it's pure laziness or distaste for picking up dog poo on the owners part
She was in the right, you should not have put it in her bin in her shop and then refuse to remove it, maybe she's glad you won't be shopping there again.
i live on the new cabra road and its covered in dog crap....... i wish the city council would put a few people to catch and fine the owners of these offending dogs.
It's not helped by the fact that bins have been removed all over Dublin. I know of several, including dog waste ones, that have vanished over the last few months. There is often a little pile of poo bags at the site where the bin used to be, like a shrine.
Of course, I'm in no way excusing people who don't clean up after their dogs, or pepole who leave bags around. I just put the handle of the bag round my wrist. There's always a bin somewhere.
As if the dog crap wasn't bad enough yesterday somebody dumped some dirty nappies on the path outside my gate. I discovered that there is an online mechanism to report illegal dumping on the City Council's website. It's quite easy and it seems to work as the Nappies were gone quite quickly.
So next time you see a pile of dog crap- fill this in. If enough of us do it then the City Council should get the message and do something
It is not the City Council that need to do something, it's dog owners who need to get the message.
