Last discussion on 'pick up after your dog'

Here is the last photo from Courtown, Ireland where it seems they have major problems getting people to pick up after their dogs. If you’ve missed the discussions on the other signs, searching for ‘courtown’ should bring them up. It looks like a boxer dog to me. The sleeves are getting rolled up and the hair is tied up out of the way. This character means business I think. My mother was always telling me to roll my sleeves up when I went to wash my hands or wash the dishes. Even now, I still push my sleeves up before tackling ‘wet’ jobs.

I hope it's not too much against MyLot etiquette resurrecting a post from a year ago, but I really like this poster. Courtown is my nearest beach (35 minutes drive away) and I've been there a couple of times in recent months and can say that I didn't notice much (or maybe even any) dog poo there. It's not generally a problem in Ireland but I remember when I first went to live in the Hague (Netherlands) in the 1970s it was almost impossible to walk down the road without stepping in it. I've been back there more recently and it seems people's habits have changed for the better!

There is nothing to say you can't go back to older posts. I'm always doing it. Ireland seemed pretty good as far as dog poo went. Courtown had four or five really clever signs regarding picking up after your dog. I did posts on several of them. Here's a photo of one of the other signs that were there.

I wish people in my town would pick up their dog mess more often. They go out in the dark to avoid being caught but I've also seen a few people who just don't care and who glare at me as I'm walking by as if to challenge me to say something about it.
