T Dalziel gives us a poem on dog poo in Hastink (your punny headline - oooh) last week (January 13).
A friend, opening up her shop, found a small pink bag on her doorstep, neatly done up as if it were a wee gift.
A few days earlier I had found a similar little blue bag by the door of the church. Perhaps it was pink from a bitch, blue, a dog.
To be fair, at least the muck was not left on the street for us to step in. All the same, I wish dog owners would realise that we really don’t want their poo-ches’ pretty pong-perfumed pestilent putrefying poo-package presents, ta ever so. There are litter bins nearby.
One friend saw a loose dog leave its poo. He scooped the mess into a bag, followed the dog home, and left the bag outside the owner’s front door. That’s enterprise for you.
I wish I could find the front doors for the pink and blue bags.
