I've lived on a corner in Oak Park for a long time. As a result, I have a pretty good idea of how many "dog parents" act responsibly by picking up the waste their charges leave behind. During the summer, very rarely do I have to pick up after their dogs.
However, I've noticed a trend this fall. As the leaves have come down, I notice more poop on my lawn left by irresponsible owners. Either the dog owners are lazy or they believe that covering up their dog's poop with leaves makes it disappear. I have news for you: There is no Fall Poop Fairy who disposes of your dog's poop even if covered by leaves. Please revert back to your practices of the summer and pick up your dog's waste products.
By the way, there is no Winter Poop Fairy either, so covering up your dog's poop with snow doesn't make it disappear either!
