Perhaps our Poop Patrol could get a break if we had some poopie stations by the desginated "dog walk" areas. In the long-run, it'd save McKinley money to pay for baggies then to have people go around with a poop-scoop and clean up after people that do not know how to curb their dogs. Not to mention this would also help with customer loyalty (I can't think of anyone that likes stepping in poo or having their pets do the same) and keeping our environment beautiful (and not smelly). This would be FAR more helpful than the apparently random cutting down of trees and bushes that has taken the forefront lately. Personally, I don't find the expense of poopie baggies that exorbitant so no one has an excuse; however, it'd be prudent to facilitate good practice rather than to make it easier for people to just not bother. Clearly, people leave their apartments and forget to bring baggies, then they simply do not remember or bother to come back out and clean things up. A few strategically-placed poopie stations would curb such laziness and negligence. It may also help to have pest control use some natural solutions for warding the millions of ants, fleas, and ticks that seem to hang out in the provided puppy space. Quite frankly, I'm just tired of people coming from the other side of the complex just to have their furry companions leave some fecal land mines in front of my apartment and this only seems to happen more often as provided spaces become less and less usable due to pests and waste hazards. Speaking of fecal land mines, whomever it is that lets their dog walk around unattended, spreading his waste material randomly about, please stop. I will let my dog eat your dog if need be. J/K.. But, seriously, watch your dogs and clean after them please. It's the courteous and responsible thing to do. I believe the lease stipulates that dogs must be kept on a leash, unless they are in the "puppy play" area(s). It's not a matter of breed restriction or demeanor. A dog will be a dog. Supervision is imperative. Such supervision can be compared to how children are not to be left unattended by the pool, which makes sense since kids and pets alike can get unruly, no matter how well-behaved they may normally be. Somehow, people seem to miss this logic. Perhaps we can have one those useful memos go out to everyone so that everyone is on the same page here.
