The smell and sight of a toddler with dog poop all over his pants, and of his mother trying to wipe it off, would have made even the most careless dog owner wince.
My plea goes out to all dog walkers who share the wonderful pathways and hiking trails around Juneau. For all of us who love to be outside enjoying the fresh air regardless of the weather, and in spite of the icy, muddy, snowy, dog-poop-covered surfaces, please contribute to all of our well being and enjoyment.
Take the few extra seconds to clean up after your dogs. We will all be more comfortable and may even be able to look up from the trail on occasion to enjoy Juneau's wonderful scenery.
