I’m 71 years old. I have a dog. Come rain, sleet or snow, this old body walks the dog and picks up after her. She’s my dog. The 300 block of South Oak Park Avenue has reached a place where the dog waste is unbelievable. I’m stunned at the amount of poop everywhere. Tonight there’s quite a trail of it on the sidewalk at Randolph Street and Oak Park Avenue.

How do you stand there and watch your dog defecate and then walk away and leave it? What are you thinking? These dog owners have to be made to take responsibility for their pets. I cannot begin to tell you the insult of bending down to pick up my dog’s poop only to step in the waste of another dog whose owner didn’t care.
